Summary: This is the best TV we have owned in our 48 years of marriage. The picture quality of the TV combinded with our Bose 1-2-3 system is outstanding. Our dogs even react to dogs barking on the program and when a door bell rings they jump, bark, and run to the front door..
Summary: This TV is very well made and it has a great picture. This is my second sharp LCD and I probably will stick with sharp for all my LCD needs. The only problem is that I bought this LCD on NOV 28 and it already had two price drops and amazons new policy is to not honor them.
Summary: Purchased the LC52D85U from Amazon after a great amount of research both online and at local retailers. The package of the Sharp Blu Ray player and free shipping tipped the scales for my purchase. I ordered just before Christmas and received my set about 2 weeks later. Set up was easy and I was watching a great picture in no time. The screen is bright and clear even with overhead lighting on or side light from windows.
Nice picture, requires adjustments and some minor complaints

Summary: The Good: Nice picture, tv looks, colors are crisp. Visually it's a beautiful picture. The Bad: The remote is funny. When you cycle though sources you have to press the "input" button on the remote not the source button on the remote. It's kinda silly to have it like that but it's a minor complaint. The power cord. It's short. Real short. Annoying but hard to complain too loudly about that. Sound: BLEH. You can't expect good sound from any HD tv these days.
Summary: Great TV. We went to Best Buy to compare the pictures of several different TVs in this size range. This was by far the best picture, not only clarity but the colors of skin tones were much more realistic. It made the choice easy. Set up was easy from unpacking to assemble. It took me maybe 15 minutes to unpack and set up with my TiVo and sound system. Only thing I needed help with was lifting it on to the stand because of the size.
For those who own this TV, get the firmware update at sharpusa.com

Summary: I had this TV since last november. I just decided to check out the website for any info and I found that this TV has a new firmware update since October of 2009. You're gonna have to download it to a USB drive that is formated as "FAT." Go here and search for this TV model: [...] Good luck.
Summary: Well, the TV that I bought on Ebay arrived with a smashed screen so I ended up paying a little more buying the same model from DELL. Even with the incinvenience of shipping the broken one back and buying another, I'm very happy with this HDTV. The picture is about as good as I have seen on any LCD TV. The five HDMI inputs is an excellent feature that few other brands can match.
Summary: After much study,I narrowed my choice to Sony,Samsung,or Sharp.I chose Sharp because of price.So far,I'm very pleased with my choice.The picture is excellent. While I plan to add surrond sound,I find no fault with the TV speakers,as did some reviews.
