Summary: I bought this 42 Aquos because I thought it would be a great product based on my previous experience with Sharp. I have had problems with turning on the unit and when I call the help line, I always get another "expert" who doesn't have a clue. I ended up having to unplug the unit, let it set several minutes and replug it in to get it to come on. First they walked me through a 'factory reset'.
Summary: Great TV for the price. A good plus feature is the USB port which plays almost all AVI content off of a portable hard disk. The only 1 CON to report so far, is the way the video files on the USB drive are listed without a SORT order and randomly. Although there is a button to sort them by name, date, size, media type; however, this feature does not seem to be functional at all.
Summary: I was really excited about this TV after reading several reviews. To be honest, if it hadn't been ordered from some obscure e-store on the other side of the country, I would probably be returning it. I'll start by saying the picture is great. For the price, I can't complain about the picture. The TV is light and sleek and looks good in the living room. Here are the down-sides: 1. Limited output capabilities. This is the most frustrating thing about this TV.
Summary: You really can't miss with this TV, unless you are a perfectionist uptight, technical type. I purchased mine via Dell also because of the price. I have it hooked-up via my cable service and the picture is more than great and sufficient for me. I can only imagine what the picture would be like with HDMI inputs. You DO NOT need a sound bar or home theather system, unless you just want one. This is a smart purchase.
Summary: The picture is SO GOOD on this TV that I spent the first hour getting over my disappointment in seeing the TV "beauties" in their true light! Man..what are these women doing on TV!? Picture is great and sound can be routed to your existing speakers easily or an inexpensive PC sound system - until you spend the money you saved on a theatre unit. I connected it to my laptop as the primary monitor and watched netflix immediately and again with a GREAT PICTURE!
Summary: I, like most people who have written reviews on this TV, purchased it from Dell for $650. I do know it was also on sale at Sam's Club for $630 for a while as well but I did not have one in my area. Onto the review: I was in the market for a 40+ inch 120hz LCD tv when I stumbled upon this. I had originally been looking in the $500 range for my said TV but I saw that this was listed for price mentioned above.
Summary: I bought this TV through Dell.com for what I thought was a fantastic price. When the T.V. first arrived, I was a bit worried about the image quality. Of course, I did have it hooked up with composite video cables and was not getting the 1080p quality image. I was worried because I have a relative whose LCD TV is connected with a coax cable and his picture looks pretty good.
Summary: I have owned the Sharp AQUOS LC42LE620UT for about a week now and I must say that I am quite happy I made the decision to by this TV. Delivery was pretty smooth...FYI I purchased this TV from Dell who uses Pilot Freight, I'm not sure what amazon might use but if it is Pilot as well be sure to call and check on your order once it is updated to "Recovered at Destination" otherwise there is a very good chance that your TV will sit there for more than a few days.
Summary: Firstly, I didn't buy the TV from amazon.com, I got it from dell.com where it was $649 with free shipping. So I won't say much about my experience with Dell's service except that it was fantastic. Honestly I have to say that ultimately it was the price that led me to buy this TV, but based on my knowledge and research, I knew that I would not be compromising quality by choosing a Sharp. The first thing I did after I took the TV out of the box was attach the stand.
