Summary: I've been very impressed with this TV for more than 5 years. I would highly recommend it if it were still for sale. I purchased mine directly through sharpusa.com in early September 2007. I got a special deal through my company (Sharp was a client), 50% off at the time, for a total of $1,000. I got it a bit earlier than retail stores and Sharp's website didn't even acknowledge the model at the time I got it.
Summary: I bough a sharp aquos for $1700 and it had no sound after 2 years of use. I had bought the extra guarantee, and got the tv fixed. It worked for only 1 more year, now the sound is completely off again. DO NOT BUY ANY SHARP TV! Dont waste your money as I did!
Excerpt: We were looking for a larger TV but we wanted a good deal. We got what we were looking for with this Sharp TV. We love it, we have had it for over 6 months and it is a great TV. When we were looking for a TV, we noticed from reading reviews that sound quality was a main problem people were having. This Sharp TV has very, very good sound. I am picky with sound and I like my stereos and TVs to have the best sound possible. The picture is great too.
Excerpt: I received this TV as a hand me down so I can't comment too much on price. Overall though I am fairly pleased with it. The picture is really good and it works great with my PS3 and Xbox. I have basic Comcast cable and sadly it doesn't look 1080p just yet. There are plenty of input options for all your gadgets so you wont have to worry about that! Possible negatives are that it can be quite heavy compared to today's ultra thin LED flatscreens.
We are REALLY enjoying our NEW Sharp (AQUOS) 42 in. HDTV!

Excerpt: **We have had our new 42 inch Sharp T.V. for about a month now; we replaced a ten year old tube t.v. by Panasonic that was a t.v. we always liked; it was VERY heavy (37 inch I believe, the old square measurement size). One day it just DIED so we saw a deal at our local furniture store where we bought a new Sofa, loveseat and received also a nice set of three tables (coffee and two end tables), plus our new SHARP 42 inch 1080 pixel LCD HDTV and also to go with it all a...
Excerpt: I bought this Sharp 42" LCD Television for my husband for christmas. We had an old tube tv and he begged for something bigger and nicer to watch football. This TV has it all. It is a perfect size, great picture with the 1080p, HDMI ports and great sound from the built in speakers. We got a great deal on the TV on Cyber monday. For the price it was an awesome deal and we love it. My biggest complaint we've had with this is only one set of normal video/audio ports.
Excerpt: My husband ordered this tv and I have to admit that I thought is was too expensive. When it was delivered to our house and he hooked it up I was amazed by the picture. You should use the Hdmi cord to hook up a dvd player or x box 360. The sound quality isn't fabulous but I also have it hooked up to surround sound and that eliminates that problem. I haven't had any issues with this tv.
great tv at a great price - exceeded expectations!

Excerpt: This Sharp 42" flat panel TV our family xmas present for 2008 Christmas. Because this set was "more economically priced" than many of its competitors, I didn't really expect the quality that we received. First of all, the set is bright and easily watched from any angle in our family room.... that is up to 120 degrees off direct center view. The colors are great and the depth is outstanding.
Excerpt: We have had this now for well over a year. The size is great! The picture and clarity is tremendious on it. We love all the features, and when my kids are playing the PS3 the gamming graphics are unbeatable on it. DVD's have never looked clearer as well. Like I said we have had it for well over a year, still good as new. No lines or fading color. Still true to it's original day we bought it. The sound quality is better than most out there.
