I got this TV because my old one decided to break for no reason and I needed a quick cheap alternatives. Once I got this i was quite amazed how good it was for the cheap price. The picture quality is quite amazing even though it is only 720p. I was also surprised to find it had a VGA input but no YPrPb to use YPrPb I had to use a adapter which came with the TV which converts YPrPb to VGA, which sharply reduces the quality of the picture, although that is not much of a problem because it also HDMI input which was superb video quality. The sound quality is also really good too as I frequently use it to play music from a CD by using my Blu-ray player. Overall i recommend buying this TV but if you regularly use YPrPb I do not think this is for you
I bought this TV to replace a 25 inch 4:3 CRT JVC TV in our living room.
The TV is 32 inch widescreen which is HD ready to 720p/1080i. It's not fully 1080p HD compatible however.
I have not used any HD material or footage on this screen yet, however, I have to report that it is excellent when showing standard defintion footage through Sky Digital and Panasonic DVD via one of the two RGB scart sockets.
Colours are bright and crisps and motion is handled excellently thanks to the very fast 6ms reponse time.
Blacks are very good and avoid a lot of the greying over that some screens can have. An adjustable backlight and black stretch enable you to get this really decent blackness. There are numerous menus to tinker with to arrive at the required picture setting you need.
The sound is really good, featuring dolby virtual surround and an option to make voices appear clearer.
The remote control has all the buttons needed. The TV has one HDMI socket and a VGA and dongle to use to connect devices by component. The TV has a good analogue tuner, plus a built in digital tuner, when freeview is available.
This is an excellent living room TV, especially good at displaying standard definition broadcasts, where some other LCD's fall down. I choose this TV over models from JVC, Sony and Toshiba.
The only problem with my example is that when a certain frequency hits the speakers at a high volume, then the speakers can vibrate a little. I'm told that this can be fixed by Sharp.
If your thinking about getting an LCD, don't forget to add a Sharp LCD to your shortlist.
