Would be a great TV if it weren't for banding issues 03/11/2008
This review is from: SHARP Sharp AQUOS 52" 1080p LCD HDTV w/ ATSC Tuner & HDMI LC-52D62U
Beautiful picture, acceptable contrast ratio, will accept 1080p on both hdmi inputs, works with linux/mythtv with the right modeline settings.
Beware of banding! I was fully aware of this issue before I bought. I'm extremely picky when it comes to things like this though. Because of the potential issues, I purchased from a local retailer with a very generous return policy. I'm glad I did. I'm on set number 3 right now. The first set had 3 distinct vertical bands. The second set had 7-8 distinct horizontal bands. The third has faint horizontal bands. It's much better than the first two, though. It's minor enough that I've decided to live with it.
If you're picky about picture quality issues like banding, I'd think twice about purchasing this set. If you do, I'd recommend buying it from somewhere with a good return policy. As much as I swear by newegg, I'm glad I bought this locally, which made returning it much easier.
