Summary: Save your money. Don't buy this piece of junk! We bought one and 2 years after good use it broke and now they want $5000 to fix it. That's more than the cost of the machine. A $4000 dollar TV shouldn't last 2 years! This is the biggest rip off ever! Sharp should be ashamed of themselves for such a crappy product! Any questions, please feel free to contact me. I am posting this on every review board I can find to save everyone their money. AVOID SHARP!!
Summary: The picture of this set is beyond compare to the other LCDs and Plasmas. The HD is 3-D like. Actually I can see the variations in HD Camera quality as I switch HD channels. I have mentally created a list of HD channels(Sports/Movies/etc) with the best picture quality. The set's sound quality is OK, but if you have surround sound system like I do, nothing to complain about.
Summary: 1) The best HD set I've owned when it comes to picture quality; there's no better way of describing the picture quality of this set than the reviewer 'Audio-Video Nut' has put it "The picture of this set is beyond compare to the other LCDs and Plasmas. The HD is 3-D like." 2) The worst HD set I've owned when it comes to sound quality. 3) I have not heard any 'pop' sound; I believe Sharp has fixed the problem at this point in time.
Summary: UPDATE: It's been one year since I posted my original review and I stand by every word. I simply have not seen better picture quality (sharpness, brightness, color saturation, etc...) on any other LCD set, of any size, than the one that sits in my family room. The picture remains stunning and the set has performed flawlessly. -------------- I just hooked up this set and am thoroughly impressed. How can you beat this for the money? What do people look for in any TV set?
Summary: I originally purchased a floor model 65inch Aquos LCD TV model 65D64U from Sears in September 2009. Sears had the floor model for some time and placed it on clearance with a price that was unbeatable. I trucked the TV home and it looked pretty good for the first two weeks. Shortly afterwards however, two ghost like horizontal bars streched acrossed the screen that were about one inch in length each.

Summary: I have had this TV for a couple of weeks now. I waited a month from the day I ordered it to the day it finally arrived. This TV is not heavy and it was easy putting it up on the wall mounted rack. I was pleasantly surprised. Let me get this straight to anyone who is concerned, the gold bezel is like a faint gloss on the bottom of the TV. Hard to notice. I am not certain why they put that light color on the set, but you have to strain to notice it.
Not so 'black' blacks...............................

Summary: Disappointing. I bought this recently for use mainly as a video monitor for DVD's/BR's and XBox games and occasionally HDTV/satellite. I do not need WiFi and all that other fluff that makes prices just increase, so a basic monitor with good contrast, brightness, and deep blacks are all I really require. Being a new off the shelf TV I had hoped technology would have improved in the LCD world. All is well except the blackness.
Summary: I did a lot of research before I bought this TV. I purchased mine about a year ago, and everyone who comes to my home asks me what kind of TV it is. I viewed it side by side with a Samsung 240Hz LED at a Best Buy Magnolia Store in Kansas City. There was no doubt in my mind the Sharp had the better picture. It is crisp, & clear, with no haze of the blacks like my Sony's.
Summary: Pros: 1) Fantastic picture, colors, etc. 2) Deals with fast motion very well (no discnerable problems in handling motion) 3) Great price. 4) No dead pixels 5) Easy menu and setup. 6) Great looking set (I'm not really sure what people are talking about regarding the gold bezel. If it has a gold bezel, I sure can't see it. It looks all black to me.) Cons: 1) My set leans backwards slightly instead of standing perfectly vertical. I'll contact customer services about this.
Summary: So I upgraded from a Samsung HL61A750 LED based DLP to this bad boy and thus far I am very satisfied. I really wanted something bigger as well as something that i could wall mount eventually (currently I have it sitting on the stand). I looked around for quite a bit and was pretty much set on picking up a 73" Mitsu DLP when I saw this TV sitting in a corner. It was being clearanced out for $1800 and I figured, why not?
