Having watched my 9-year-old current CRT TV start to have picture problems I made the decision to replace it with something a bit more up to date. After looking at numerous 28? wide screen TVs and being put off by the sheer size of them I opted for an LCD. Sharp seem to be one of the leaders in LCD technology and having read the reviews for this TV I took the leap and went for it. Rather than pay £2250 for it in a retail shop I went through a number of Internet sites and found it online for £1500. Once out of the box, setting it up is relatively simple although I think that the manual should identify which scart sockets in the separate AV unit are for which source slightly earlier than page 42. This separate unit means that there is only one lead and the power lead going into the back of the TV rather than all the source leads. The on-screen instructions are clear and complete the set up quite quickly. Now to sit down and watch something. Picture quality is excellent both with on air and DVD sources. The colours are true with depth and clarity, and the detail on Pixar animations is superb. Sharp gives you the option of removing the speakers from the sides, which I have done, and to play the sound through your HI-Fi. This makes the TV look less imposing and aesthetically more pleasing on the eye. After 6 days of usage the only negative I have about the system is the cooling fan noise from the AV unit. All in all, very happy.
