Summary: I have an older 50" samsung (4 years old) that outperforms this 40" Sharp LCD. Unlike the name implies, the picture is not really very sharpe. However, at $549 for a 40" Sharp LCD/1080p/120hz, the price justifies the negatives.
Summary: 1. No manual for this tv. It's really needed. 2. The audio is too weak. It is set to deliver sound toward the back (wall) of the set so you must increse the level to hear properly. 3. The remote control is not intuitive. You either experiment and learn the hard way or call SHARP. 4.
Summary: I bought this Sharp 3 days ago. The TV is plug in to a coaxial cable via a charter TV. The picture is bright and comparable to a SONY 120 hertz. A Tad cleaner and better but a TAD less color than a SONY. I have both so I did a comparison. The Sharp sound is really a dissapointment.
