5 out of 5 eggsGreatest HDTV I have ever known

Pros: Incredible picture quality. Pretty lightweight. Many, many inputs. Great looking design.

Cons: The bass seems to overpower the TV speakers so I highly recommend buying a 5.1 speakers for your TV, trust me you will thank me.

Other Thoughts: This TV is phenomenal, the picture is incredible, it looks great and it's not that heavy. I have my PS3, X-box 360 and Wii all connected to this TV and it's so simple to switch in between them. I also used it as a computer monitor and Oh MY G*D! Counterstrike on a 1920x1080 resolution is insane! Probably the best TV I have ever owned. I also suggest getting 5.1 speakers for this TV because the TV has a problem with bass. It tends to overpower the speakers, so get what I got, Logitech 5.1 Z-5500 speakers=Amazing.

5 out of 5 eggs32" Sharp LCD GREAT PRODUCT

Pros: Purchased through newegg with free shipping and recieved product ahead of schedule, newegg also had the cheapest price by at least $40 compared with other online sites. 1080p looks fantastic as a computer monitor even when youre only 3-4 feet away, I have it connected to xbox360(1080p Component), computer(1080p DVI-HDMI). Both look excellent, HD tv through component even in 1080i and 720p broadcasts still shows a much nicer picture over SD TV. There is also no noticable video game lag for my xbox360 even on the rear non-vyper drive inputs

Cons: I wish it had another set of additional component video inputs on the back of the TV as opposed to the vyper drive set on the side since this causes the cables to stick way out, all the more reason to upgrade to HDMI cables.

Other Thoughts: Only found one dead pixel so far (stuck green) in the left center of the screen, I will tell you though that Unless you set the entire screen to a black backround and get within 1 foot of the tv youre never going to notice or find any stuck pixels because with a 32" set with 1080p resolution the pixels are extremely small

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Television and Computer Monitor

Pros: I will start off with stating that video games, look simply amazing on it. Full 1080p when playing games on my Mac with it just look stunning. The Wii looks great with some sharpness tweaking (using component cables and 480p). PS2 games also look very good on it but show their age, even with component cables (really comes down to the game though, GT4 looked great).

As a TV it is fantastic. Got my HD cable box and all the HD channels look excellent on it, any problems are purely the cable companies side and channels. Lower bitrates etc. Playing DVDs on it with my Mac still at 1080p looks excellent. Effectively worked as an upscaler to 1080p and it was just an excellent image from just a DVD. Looked better than most HD TV channels.

It works well as a general use desktop monitor as well, I wouldn't suggest going any larger than 32 inch for 1080p though, pixels start looking huge after that.

The wide assortment of inputs is very nice as well and the menu system isn't a pain to use

Cons: Slight red and blue push, making red and blue text hard to read on certain background colors (I wonder though if this is in part the fault of the dynamic contrast pushing colors to be more intense). You can't totally disable the dynamic contrast but you can dumb it down to a point that it isn't annoying for desktop computer use. I'm not 100% sure but the pixel layout isn't a grid, so straight lines look kinda jagged if they're horizontal or vertical.

Other Thoughts: The cons, for me anyway, are very negligable. If you need a perfectly color accurate TV/Monitor combo, I'd suggest looking elsewhere. Otherwise, I highly recommend this TV for gaming, movies, tv and general desktop use.

5 out of 5 eggsWow!

Pros: The picture is incredible! I have used this with the Playstation 3 and as a computer monitor and it has excelled at everything so far. There is more than enough inputs for me to use and almost everything can be adjusted in the settings. Doesn't hurt that the TV itself looks fantastic either.

Cons: I wish the TV could tilt or swivel, but the viewing angle is great and this hasn't been an issue so far (although it could be in the future). Of course the speakers are pretty weak as well but what did you expect from television speakers?

Other Thoughts: Some people have found this TV to have a slight bit of red push but this can be counter-acted by changing the color temperature in the settings.

4 out of 5 eggsGood but not perfect

Pros: Plenty of video inputs, great picture, film mode for interlaced film content, 1080P OVER COMPONENT, plenty of picture options. Remote with plenty of buttons for usability. Ability to select different AV Modes from button on remote. Very little/no ghosting that is apparent to me. Fake surround isn't too bad, although I rarely used it. No overscan mode for HD modes.

Cons: Reds bleed when you turn the backlight down, DVI-I input can't display 1080p from VGA sources, which is quite annoying. For example, the 360 won't work with 1080p over VGA, and I can't do 1080p from my lpatop, although I think that's also partially the laptop's fault.

The TV could use another component input or two. Would be nice if the zoom display mode would display 4:3 letterbox content without overscanning the picture at all. Would be nice to have a 'no overscan' mode for 480p.

Other Thoughts: I like the TV, it's just minor issues that I have with it that keep it from being a 5/5 for me. A few stuck pixels developed after a month or two, but they're not really noticable unless it's a really dark scene or I'm up really close to the TV. They're actually really just stuck subpixels, most of them, and on a display of 2 million pixels, 8 stuck pixels that I tend to forget about don't really annoy me that much. I wish they weren't there...but I don't want to send the TV off, either. Oh well, I guess it's the risk you run with LCDs.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I bought this thing to use a computer monitor and it does a very good job. The colors, especially flesh tones are right on, after I got the Vyper drive working. That entailed an HMDI adapter on the side to convert my DVI cable. I had it hooked up initially DVI to DVI and was struggling to get the colors and resolution right and mostly failed. Once I got the adapter and plugged it into the side port for the game mode, presto it worked like I had hoped with the preprogramed settings. I have DVI to HDMI cord on order to fix the giant kludge sticking out the side.
I've only played FEAR on it so far and it rivals my 24 inch ultrafine dell only with a lot more real estate, (nearly double the sq. inches). The game is more playable with everything bigger.

Cons: Doesn't tilt or swivel. I hadn't thought about that before I bought it but then it is a TV and not many TV's do those things. I have it on a coffee table that makes it the right height and with the 178 degree viewing angles it hasn't been a problem.

Other Thoughts: I haven't figured out yet how to make the max resolution fit completely on the screen or even if it's possible. I'm running an ASUS 8800gt at a custom rez of 1800x1000 to get my desktop to fill the screen.
Overall I would recommend this to anyone looking for a 32 inch LCD. HD looks like its painted on even up close, 3 feet, better I think than my HD plasma from a normal veiwing distance.

2 out of 5 eggsDead after three months.

Pros: The TV works fine as a monitor. Linux displays fine using an HDMI input

Cons: Had it for three months and now it won't turn on. Power light blinks an error code. Linux display is offset using the DVI input. Sharp tech support was useless, as expected, but don't even make an effort.

Other Thoughts: Next time I'll go with another brand.

3 out of 5 eggsDoes not seem to offer Picture In Picture

Pros: Bright picture, easy to set up, looks like a quality unit.

Cons: Does not seem to offer Picture In Picture. This is a TV and a computer monitor, and I wanted to play TV while I am computing using PIP. This is not possible. Also, unless you have a great graphics card and digital HDTV, the picture quality will not look very good. Analog TV looks bad on it (I suspect that is true with most HDTV's, though).
