Pros Fantastic ability to handle all lighting situations. No reflections or glare as I have experienced on other sets. Sporting events are absolutely awesome. Fine motion and 120 hz allows me to see things I have never seen before.
Cons None so far.
Summary I'm still sorting out all of the different features. So far all of the programming options are a breeze to change. The ability to alter the video mode on the fly from the remote is quick and easy so you adjust the viewing preference as your programs change wether its a movie, educational program, or sporting event. The detail and clarity of the Nascar races is fantastic. Even old TV programs look fantastic and I now notice things in those programs that I never saw before and I had upgraded from a 42" rear projection Mitsubishi Medallion that I thought was real good. The Sharp LC-52E77U is an absolutely fantastic set that is well worth the purchase price of $1800 at Sears.
"Love this tv!"on by LifesAll0ver
Pros -Blacks look great.
-HD and SD sources look wonderful. There have been times where I had to double check if it was an HD signal while watching SD.
-Fast response time and no burn in. I've always been a plasma fan, but this tv won me over.
Cons -Sound is less than stellar. I'd recommend a nice home theater system. That's what I have.
-Bezel and screen scratches easy. Be really careful when mounting it or placing it on it's stand.
-Turn of Film mode and OPC. They are both bothersome.
Summary You'll really love this tv. Honestly I've gone through many different types of tvs. I really didn't think I would find one I'd like. Because I am really picky, but also because I use it for a variety of things. (Movies, tv, computer screen, and lots of gaming.) As I've said I'm a huge plasma tv fan. Still am, but this just managed to win me over. I needed a tv that would be able to tolerate my gaming habits with out burning in. I loved watching movies on my old plasma. Blacks looked better, motion was better, and colors looked more natural, but I was always scared of playing games as much as I liked to because of burn in. With this tv. I don't have to worry about blurring, low response times, or ghosting like I did with most lcds. Also sharp makes the only LCDs I've seen that don't have flashlighting. Something I hate about lcds. You can also rest easy about Sharp's customer care because it's great. The tv is easy to use. And as long as you calibrate it right. You'll have an amazing looking picture. It's at a great price too. You really can't go wrong.
Pros Looks Beautiful on the wall, Sounds good, picture is surreal w/ Sony PS3
Cons How easy the finish scratches even with a "Monster" Dry Rag
Summary I traded my LC-52D64 in for this model. I'm way happier with the picture with HD cable, Xbox 360, PS3 and the computer. Extra HDMI's are cool too! Grab one if you can. Light Weight.
5 HDMI (4 in back one on side)
Cons Sound needs tweaking
Summary I LOVE my new TV! Got it a couple of days ago. Made the big mistake of using coax cables vs HDMI when we first got it. HDMI made all the difference! Looks great and haven't had any problems. The picture is crisp and sound got better once we plugged in the HDMI. Just make sure you play with the sound settings in the menu. I have NO complaints about this product. We bought it from QVC for $999 on Today's Special Value. With tax and shipping it came to $1139. They now have it listed $1170 plus $76 s & h. Still a great buy!
Pros Price, Picture clarity, brightness, color. Five HDMI ports ensure that everything plugs into it. Works great with the Sharp BD-22U.
Cons I did not buy this set sooner.
Summary Buy this TV with the Blue Ray player before Football Season Starts. Pre-season games has mad this set worth every penny. Did I say the price was $1,499?
