This is one of the best bargain buys I have ever found. Ever.
The picture on the TV is fantastic, high def channels through Fios look sharp & clear. Blacks could be darker, but I'm not picky and I have seen worse pictures on more expensive LCD screens. Sound is pretty good for a factory speaker set on a television in this price category - if you're building a home theater then you'll want to use surround, but otherwise it's perfect for watching TV. Installation is a snap, setup is fairly easy. The settings menus are a bit difficult to navigate, but as long as you have a clue what you're after then you can make it do what you need it to do. All in all, this is a spectacular buy. Would recommend as a very good budget TV.
I got the best deal on this TV! $500 with free shipping for a 42" Sharp 1080p LCD cannot be beaten these days. The quality is excellent. I have it hooked up to my PS3 with surround sound and it is awesome. The internal speakers sound good but are no match for surround sound. I had to get an adapter because this HDTV only has a digital coaxial audio out and my PS3 and most other things are Toslink optical audio. My only suggested improvement would be to add an optical audio output. Also, it is a bit slow to change between inputs (about 5 seconds).
PROS: great contrast. HD looks great with 1080p. The speakers sound good compared to other TV's I looked at. (still no substitute for a good center channel).
CONS: when the screen is dark the corners are a bit brighter than the rest of the screen but I'm only reminded of this during the credits credits. and by then, well, the movie is over :)
Bottom line: I am extremely happy with this TV. In the past 2 years or so, Sharp has tried to focus more on specializing in 42in and larger screens. This TV shows their success so far.
This TV looks very very nice. I use this TV to watch HD TV, play my xbox 360 and watch Blu-Ray movies. It has 3 HDMI ports and a few other component and vga ports so what ever you have will be able to connect to this TV. I had a 32 inch 720p TV and this TV is miles above that TV. Going from 720 to 1080 is really a big difference. This TV lacks some customization like you can't re-name the input channels so you kind of just have to know whats on input 1 and input 2...etc. Not a big deal but still annoying at times. The TV casing looks very nice too. TV powers on quick. A really great TV for the price, better ones out there sure but not by much. If you buy this TV you will not regret it.
