It really took me about a year to decide what i was going to do as far as upgrading to an LCD/Plasma tv. My first choice was the 42" Vizio. Everything was great but after a while i felt the 'sound' quality should be better, and i was getting a black fuzzing bar on top of the screen everytime the picture had a bright background or background turned white. I think it was just a bad unit. It is a good starter tv though.
So before i returned it, i did a lot of research on this 46" Sharp and another 46" Toshiba. I chose this model due to having a wider screen vertically. And all i can say is, you get what you pay for! The picture quality is superior to others. You just have to play with the picture settings to get it the way you like it. It also has a great feature i use a lot when the little one watches cartoons. It dims the contrast lighting so picture isnt so bright and not so bad on the eyes. On the Vizio, (something i hated the most) you have a big blue menu screen 'in front' of the picture, which it makes very hard to adjust the picture settings. You have to preset, exit menu, if you dont like, menu, preset again, exit again, and if you dont like it, you have to do it again.
I was very impressed on the sound quality, on how you can adjust the bass/treble in the menu and just listening to it to suite your likings. Sound is great! Much better than the Vizio.
Features are easy to navigate thru and overall, a very good choice!
I do like how the black border around the screen is very thin compared to my old Vizio. It looks like you have more screen vertically rather than a 3" belt wrapped around it(Vizio).
Complare this to others before you buy and you'll see what im talking about. It gives it a more cleaner look. I took my measuring tape with me and it helped me decide.
Open Both pictures of this and any other set here and compare. you'll have to print them out in color and see for yourself.
Overall, this is the best choice for me and for what im looking for. I have a PS2 with a component cable and games look awsome. I just cant wait till i get my PS3 this xmas with HDMI! THis is the one to get!!!!!!
