This review is from: SHARP Sharp AQUOS 52" 1080p LCD HDTV w/ ATSC Tuner & HDMI LC-52D62U
The TV arrived as scheduled and intact. Shippers were very efficient. The TV was better than expected. I was determined to buy a same size plasma, but after seeing this model in a store decided to compare. Blacks are not absolutely black in a dark room, however they are very exceptable besides having a 10k dynamic contrast.The biggest tradeoff over a plasma is power consumption. Plasmas are NOT green. This LCD uses roughly half the power of a plasma. It also doesn't heat a room up needing an air conditioner to cool things down (adding more energy costs) when using a plasma.
The HD is breathtaking. You do have to tweak it a little out of the box. I recommend simply for the sake of knowing what the TV can do. It's easy to restore defaults if you go to far.
Overall this is a great buy. Beats paying $500 or more at a brick and mortar store, over NEWEGG price.
I can see why the remote is nothing special as most people will use a home theater universal or a cable box remote as I do.
Aquos Advantage is free and extends your warrantee by Sharp. It also provides comprehensive help concerning your set. This seems like the same set as a LC-52D64U except that it's not as thin, has one less HDMI. and a few hundred less in price.
