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. The picture is as amazing as any TV I've seen, and, lo and behold, I have not had a single maintenance issue in 5 years. (Although that's probably because I also bought an extended warranty. You know how that works.) Sound?
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 went out. Nothing to do with cable or any outside issues. I read up on some suggestions, unplugged the TV overnight, and the next day it was good as new.
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. All of the other input sources work except for HDMIs. I bought this TV with a Mastercard so I automatically received Mastercard's 1 year extension on the manufacturer's 1 year warranty.
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. You will see some trails as with all lcds other than the 09's and afters but it certainly wasn't even close to being a deal breaker for us. Size is great.
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. At 2 years old this model is already a dinosaur. We will happily spend the hundreds we saved on something other than today's latest greatest TV that will be outdated in less than 18 months.
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. One of my apprehensions regarding this TV is the brown that is at the bottom of the TV, as you can not tell how brown it is. After getting the TV wall mounted it really blends into the wall and is not noticeable.
Summary: I don't have a single complaint about this TV. It was super easy to setup and doesn't weigh very much. The picture and sound are great. I have even used it as my computer monitor by hooking up my laptop with an hdmi cable. Excellent picture quality.
Summary: I actually own the sister version of this product (the ), but the information in this review is equally applicable to this TV since they use the same, albeit smaller, panel. Since I have owned this TV for a few months now, I thought it would be helpful to share a few tips and tricks I have learned: PROBLEM: INCOMPATIBLE AUDIO SIGNAL All my A/V devices (360, PS3, Wii, Samsung DTB-H260F) were connected to my Onkyo TX-SR607 receiver with HDMI, which was set to output to my...
