Excerpt: I've never quite understood all the hoopla surrounding the power consumption of LCD and plasma HDTVs, especially when you consider that the much thirstier 3-tube rear projection big screens of yore consumed a whole lot more power than the 200–300 watts of modern day sets. Of all the energy-draining applinces in a home (A/C, refrigerator, electric oven/range, etc.), your typical flat panel TV is fairly low on the energy-hog tree.
Sharp LC52D85U AQUOS 52-Inch Flat-Panel LCD HDTV: The WOW Factor
Personal Electronics buzz
11 August 2009
Excerpt: Sharp LC52D85U AQUOS 52-inch flat-panel LCD HDTV has a total of five HDMI inputs. The WOW factor is the 120Hz refresh rate and 4ms response time. I watch action flicks and this baby doesn't blur out or skip a beat during fast action chase scenes. The picture quality is beyond description. Crisp color, rich deep true color and B&W that is cinema quality.
Excerpt: Among the company's current lines is the D85 series, which comes in several sizes, including the 52-inch LC-52D85U reviewed here. This series represents a growing trend in which upscale features are migrating into lower-cost sets, a trend I heartily applaud.
