  • Pros: Sharp Aquos LC-52D65U 2009 is a great tv for the money. You get a superior flat screen for a little money. Looked at many options and manufacturers and this model stood up to all. 5 hdmi ports full 1080p at a great price from 6th ave.
  • Cons: Not much is wrong. A little sharp around the edges.

Sharp is sharp but color takes some tweaking

  • Summary: The biggest reason I bought the Sharp LC-52D65U was because it was BIG! Granted, I was used to a 27" CRT so everything looked large in comparison. Once I bought the TV and got it out of the box, it was staggering how large it was in my little house. Of course, after about a week of watching it was just 'normal' again. The price for size of screen was the main factor that led me to purchase this model.

Best bang for the buck!

  • Summary: Could not have spent my money any better. For the price of a 32" you get a 52" that matches all others. Friend of mine has a 42" Pioneer Elite he purchased a couple of years ago for three times the price and the AQUOS picture blows it away.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Bright Image, Good Connection Options, Good Resolution, Simple Controls
  • Cons: Nothing yet

This is a great TV. With brillant color.

  • Summary: We use the TV in the large family room. There is no glare from the patio window and the color and contrast is excellant. The entire family and friends can see the TV and enjoy movies from all angles of the room. The weekest part of the TV is the sound system. I will be hooking up my stero system and adding speakers which I had planned on doing anyway but was disappointed in the level of sound the TV speakers could deliver.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Bright Image, Fast Setup, Good Connection Options, Good Resolution, Reduced Glare, Simple Controls
  • Cons: Poor Sound

"Hi Def Mode & 5 HDMI ports a Plus Stand def. NEEDS HELP"

Hal4000, CNET
5 November 2008
  • Pros: The fact that theres 5 HDMI inputs on this model is a big plus. theres also a USB port for Firmware updates/Service port. i can only hope & wait that Sharp addresses this standard def issue.
  • Cons: Standard Definition mode in a word SUCKS !!! this is my 1st. HDTV and the standard def is worst than my old RCA (1992) 52 rear projection big screen TV. thats unfortunate for sharp and its 1st foray into a energy saver model of a HI-DEF LCD 52 Set.
