Excerpt: We have had this TV for almost 7 years and there hasn't been a single problem with it. It gets a great picture and I have absolutely nothing bad to say about it. In todays day, lasting long and working without problems is especially great.
Summary: I bought this TV on Jan. 22nd 2009 for, I believe, a very good price ($1600) The picture on this Sharp looks watery; one could see the pixels moving and not the actual object. It's hard to explain but I'm not that happy about my new TV. I went to a Best Buy store and watched few other brands and I realized this model I've got (LC52D92U) might not be one of the better ones.
Summary: I bought this TV a year ago (November 2007). I have yet to be over at somebody's house and think, "wow, that TV looks better than mine." And that's saying a lot, because I'm the guy that friends, neighbors and relatives ask for home theatre advice. I bought Sharp on the advice of a master repairman who told me that Sharp has never delved into plasma TVs. All their research & development $$$ has been devoted to LCD.
Summary: I waited to write this review. It has been 9 months and THIS TV ROCKS. That sounds simplistic, but I don't know how else to convey how happy we are. The price on Amazon was amazing. It was our first purchase on Amazon so I was skeptical (of the price) but everything was great. The studios hate us because we haven't been to the movies since. Why bother? 52" and surround sound in your own home? LOVE FOOTBALL SEASON!
Summary: Like a lot of people, I was scared to order such a big expensive item online. Although I'm sure there are horror stories, mine was a great success. The TV arrived quickly, undamaged, and in perfect condition. From what it looks like it came direct from the manufacturer. The TV's Auto Contrast feature was a bit annoying to me (it's on by default), but it can be turned off. So if you're wondering why your colors keeps changing, it's the Auto Contrast feature.
Summary: awesome TV, amazing picture, but seems Sharp did not get the good CPU for this TV's menus, or did not write the software correctly, because the menus kinda hang, switchin input is a big pain. If you need to switch from Input 1 to Input 5, and there is no signal on Inputs 2,3,4, it would temporarily freeze on either Input 2,3,4 or more than one when you are making the switch.
Summary: This T.V. ROCKS- I'm glad I went with the higher model D92U-Features are well worth the extra $$- You can see the nose hairs on the actors-as well as their other blemishes- When watching sporting events-you can read the T-shirts in the stands- And on football games I could even read the warning label on the back of the helmets- At present I'm just using the Surround Sound Bar that came with the T.V.
Had the potential of being the best, but manufacturing defects a huge issue

Summary: This set has a lot going for it. Great picture and nice ergonomics with decent speakers. But one serious flaw remains. BANDING! This is my third set from Sharp after the last two were replaced. Each set had a different degree of banding than the rest. Banding is particularly noticeable in TV content that has a lot of camera movement against a neutral background (shows like ER, Boston Legal, CSI all accentuate this defect considerably).
Summary: I bought this set because I needed the 3 HDMI ports and I wanted the best picture. Have had no problems after one month, no banding issues, great contrast and vivid pictures. I don't think that you can do any better with any other set but I also don't think that you would be able to tell the difference with less expensive sets either. I compared the 92 with a 62 in the store side by side and could not tell any difference.
