Summary: I purchased this TV and owned it for approximately a month. I got it on sale at Best Buy for $899 and even at that I believe it was over priced. Yes, it has a ridiculous amount of features (4 HDMI ports, 3D, Wifi, DLNA, ect), but these are useless if the TV's picture is horrible. I had the TV professionally calibrated by an ISF certified expert and even after that it still never looked quite right.
Summary: pros: sturdy frame, nice aesthetics, good 2D picture, good adjustability of picture settings cons: bad crosstalk in 3D, plenty of input-lag makes gaming less enjoyable mixed: pixel component layout makes natural images less aliased, but makes sharp, fine lines in PC and some console game output look fuzzier
Consider this Sharp model. I did and I'm very happy with it.

Summary: I was originally looking to buy a Samsung or Sony model and hadn't given any consideration to Sharp. But then I saw this television in a local retailer and was very pleasantly surprised at the picture and the price. It's got a wonderful picture, built in wireless, streaming apps and plenty of input ports. The Aquos link even works well with the rest of my Sony components. It has turned out to be an excellent addition to my home entertainment system. Two thumbs up.
Great TV except for the 3D - Horrible service from Sharp

Summary: The TV itself on normal mode is fine. I had no issues until we tried to watch a 3D movie. Anything in the Foreground or Background was producing an extra image. I contacted Sharp regarding this, and after 2 days, they finally sent me an e-mail asking me to take several pictures. After following the instructions, I never got a reply back. I called them and they said there was nothing they could do/diagnose with the pictures.
Summary: I really have high expectation in Aquos, but after exchanging for the same TV second time and same problem still persist, I'm getting really frustrated and very disappointed in their quality. We came home and the first thing we did is "3D test" where they show you a still image and see what it looks like with 3D glass, we can clearly see ghost image on some of the balls on the image, we change the depth setting by making some ball looks better, but then some ball start...
Summary: What an absolutely stunning image. The screen is enormous, light clear and concise. I am so happy I made this purchase. Very easy to set up, the WIFI is a little tricky but once it is in place, things like netflix, you tube are so easy to connect to. I should have taken much less time to make the decision, but now that it is hanging in the living room, I could not be happier!!!
Summary: We are in awe of everything this TV can do, the crisp and clear images even while in 2D. We thought we had experienced high definition, not true, not until we got this TV and were blown away by its capability. We love how easy it's been to navigate, the apps, everything. One recommendation only, and something that everyone will tell you, a soundbar or sound system is necessary these days with any type of HDTV, and this cool dude is no exception.
