Summary: Plain & simple tv worked fine up till now (bought Oct 2007) Now the speakers have sound that comes out for a second then doesn't , then comes back after a few seconds then gos out again. I'm not saying Sharp tvs are no good , just thats sad I only got 5yrs out of the speakers, will see if its worth getting fixed, you know how it is.
Beware of a defective screen - you will be stuck with it!
Not so Sharp, Amazon

Summary: Make sure you carefully examine the picture using the actual unit you will buy, and if you are mail ordering it, make sure you have a good return policy that allows returns for screen defects. Sharp will NOT replace units that have even very noticeable flaws. I have a unit with a region of dim pixels the size of a pea, and they consider it to be 'within spec', and WILL NOT replace it.
Summary: I eagerly awaited the delivery of this bad boy, and can not be more pleased with it. Currently I have a standard def DVD player, Comcast HD cable box, and an Apple Mac Mini connected to it. I'll give you a run-down on how each fares: Standard DVD: The picture looks great, and even though not HD it does not pixellate or blur as much as I'd thought it would.
Summary: My husband got the 42" version of this set mainly to watch his never ending sports. I liked it so bought the 32" for my movies. It's great for both HD and standard programs which we receive via cable. I have the cable company's DVR box and that's working well with this set. I rent movies from Netflix and all of those have looked fine though I still have a standard DVD/VCR combo. The sound is fine and this TV looks very nice as well.
Summary: When I was shopping for a new HDTV this spring, I did a search of everything I wanted in one. The 62U popped up right away because it has everything. And it all works fantastic too. The built in ATSC tuner is stunning! I had a digitalstream external tuner for my last TV and it was very touchy. I had to readjust the antennae all the time. Not so with the 62U. There's still the occassional adjustment, but for the most part everything comes in beautifully all the time.
Summary: I've had this TV for three weeks now and I'm very happy with it. I went with the small end of the HDTV line because I have a moderately sized apartment and didn't want the set to dominate my living room. The 32" screen is a nice, modest size and the picture quality is great. Going for 1080p rather than 720p might be overkill at this size, but it's nice to know I have the sharpest image money can buy and it'll make a stunning second monitor for my computer.
Summary: QAM tuner picks up all my HD local channels, plus INHD and TNTHD from my local comcast market. I work at CC, so I got to know the TV really well from how it looked at work. Once I took it home, it looked 10x better once I was done with my calibration DVD. I sit about 10.5 back, so analogue doesn't look bad at all. I must say, this set does analogue stuff fairly well. Local HD stuff looks phenomenal.
Summary: UPDATE 10/25: After Sharp told me that one dead pixel was normal, the tv stopped working and just had a continuous flashing green power light. (I know, how convenient). Sharp wanted me to schedule the TV for service via a local service center, and after not hearing from the service center I decided not to mess around any more and called 6Ave and advised the TV stopped working 20 days after delivery.
Summary: Hello everyone! I just purchased this TV several weeks ago from Amazon. It's a wonderful TV to be sure, but it has risks that I'd like to warn everyone about. When I received my package, it was damaged on delivery (a big crack in the speaker) and had 12 dead pixels. Amazon and UPS took care of the replacement about a week later and I received another unit that was in perfect condition, but appeared to have already been taken out of the box once. Hmm, maybe a refurb?
Summary: I purchased this TV for exclusive use of my Xbox 360. As other have stated, this DOES accept 1080p thru component input as well as HDMI. This 1080p thru component inputs is key feature for any Xbox 360 gamer. Image is fantastic, no blurring on super fast action racing games. I connected a small UHF antenna and got great HDTV reception in my area. As a big fan/owner of Sony and Samsung LCDs - this TV has excellent ink black blacks and the pureest whites.
