Summary: When I was considering a flat-screen HDTV, I called a repair shop and asked for a recommendation, based on reliability. The tech said "Just get a Sharp Aquos, and be done with it." So, that's what I did, and I have not regretted it one bit.
Summary: This TV has served me incredibly well for five years now. Amazon even sent a tech to set everything up and to haul away the massive box when I initially purchased the TV. After about four and a half years it started to show its age a tad and suddenly went kaput one night and the picture completely...
Summary: Originally I was very impressed with this TV. The picture quality was good and I got a great price on a simple TV without all the unnecessary frills that new TVs now come with. No complaints at first. Right after two years the HDMI inputs stopped working.
Summary: I did alot of research before buying. Within this price range and the date of the model(newer lcd's are better and faster obviously) I found it to be the most capable spec wise. My girlfriend and I use it often for movies and xbox 360 gaming. Performs admirably.
Save Hundreds By Enduring Very Minor Inconveniences

Summary: We bought the TV for under $600 refurbished. The only reasons I assume are the following: 1. It takes 10 seconds to turn on 2. It does not have an ethernet connection so firmware upgrades need to be done using your computer and a memory stick. 3. The push towards LED and 3-D.
Summary: I had shopped the electronic stores here locally and was told to stick with the 3 S's on more than one occasion (Sony, Sharp, and Samsung). For the price you can not get a better value than this Sharp 1080p 120HZ TV.
Summary: If you're a videogamer, this is a fantastic TV to get. I play call of duty, geometry wars evolved, halo 3. I couldn't feel any lag in any of those games.
Pros: Great picture. In game mode at least, UNDETECTABLE game lag. This was my number one priority, and I barely detect any lag whatsoever in game mode. And it still looks brilliant. In guitar hero: world tour calibration test, got 8-10ms on average. No one can feel that kind of lag. The outside shippi...
Cons: The remote does kinda suck. But that's a very small issue for me.
