Sharp Aquos LC-52D85U

 

Getting a sweet deal on a solid product is always a good thing, especially in an economy like this one. Sharp's Aquos LC-52D85U ($2,099.99 direct) is one of the least expensive LCD HDTVs you can get that features detail-enhancing 120-Hz display...

Solid value. Energy efficient. Five HDMI ports

Picture contrast lags behind some competing brands. No multimedia features

Talk about "the big picture": Sharp's 52-inch Aquos LC-52D85U LCD TV delivers an admirable performance at an appealing price.

Aquos LC52D85U 52-inch LCD

 

Design is not the Sharp's LC-52D85U ($2300, as of November 4, 2008) strong point. The on-screen menus, the remote, and even the manual could have used a once-over to make them more friendly. But this model does well on the most important criterion,...

Well-paced, side-mounted connectors

Poorly designed menus Remote has near-useless backlighting

Furthermore, the Sharp LC-52D85U doesn't support picture-in-picture or any multimedia capabilities via USB, SD Card, or ethernet

Sharp LC-52D85U

 

The Sharp AQUOS LC-52D85U is a television that won't disappoint you. The only consumer complaints have been regarding the TV stand, which in some may not fit correctly. But if this occurs, a technician can adjust the TV to fit. Another complaint is...

TESTED: Sharp LC-52D85U LCD HDTV

 

I've never quite understood all the hoopla surrounding the power consumption of LCD and plasma HDTVs, especially when you consider that the much thirstier 3-tube rear projection big screens of yore consumed a whole lot more power than the 200–300 watts...

Sharp Aquos LC-52D85U

 

One of the latest great deals in LCD HDTVs is the Aquos LC-52D85U from Sharp, which offers 52-inches of 1080p HD resolution with a lightning fast 120-Hz display for under $2000. The low price point of this TV along with its above-average picture...

Excellent value ; 5 HDMI ports & more ; Energy efficient w/ light-sensor ; Above average picture quality after calibration

Lacking multimedia features ; Getting the best picture requires a lot of calibration with color menu

The Sharp Aquos LC-52D85U comes with a 1 year warranty from Sharp and is Energy Star Compliant.

Many companies have gotten into the LCD TV game over the last few years, hoping to capitalize on the high demand for flat panels. But most are newcomers compared to Sharp, which was among the first to offer LCD TVs in Japan way back in 1988. Since...

Sharp LC-52D85U Review – 52-inch LCD HDTV

 

Sharp LC-52D85U. Sharp's latest AQUOS Series LC52D85U is a perfect balance of fine outlook and impressive features. The 120Hz frame-rate conversion, fine motion technology along with a super-fast 4ms pixel-response time, helps the Sharp LC52D85U...

In a nutshell, the Sharp LC52D85U shows better performance in both image as well as audio quality. Though the price is a bit high compared to others in its size range, it competes in quality and value.

Sharp LC-52D85U 52-inch LCD HDTV

 

This model does well on the most important criterion, image quality

At $2300, this model provides the best picture for its price among the 50- and 52-inch sets. It's not the easiest television to use, and it lacks some features, but maybe those features aren't worth the extra $200 you'd have to pay for the Samsung...
