Pros: Easy install. Previous reviewers had complained about difficulties in opening the case. My suggestion - make sure your Philips screwdriver fits snugly before you turn. Once the case is opened, installing SO-DIMM and 2.5" drive is a breeze. Windows 7 64-bit loaded through a USB DVD drive. Media Center works great with HD Homerun Prime. HD channels and MP4 files play smoothly without lag or pixelation. Great value at $100+. Free Media Center remote and receiver in a promotion.
Cons: HDMI maxes out at 720p or 1366x768. Included display driver/utility "Chrontel" loads at start-up and stays in the foreground .
Other Thoughts: Seems to cool better with convection in vertical positionREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SHARP Sharp AQUOS 52" 1080p LCD HDTV w/ ATSC Tuner & HDMI LC-52D62U
Pros: Great picture, 1080p resolution, decent sound, intuitive user interface, last but not least - best price among the top-tier brands
Cons: Lacks dedicated PC input (work around with a DVI-HDMI cable); Takes some tweaking to display 1080p from PC
Other Thoughts: Spent some time in Best Buy comparing plasma vs LCD and Sharp vs Samsung vs Sony. Concludsion: plasma still has a little edge over LCD on color but LCD has better prices for 1080p panels and no burn-in issue; 2) Sony and Sharp have the best LCD pictures and Sharp is one gram easier on your wallet. Out of the box without calibration, I used the Movie mode and got great HDTV pictures through a $15 Radio Shack antenna in my 12th-floor apartment in Manhattan. Hooked it up with a Samsung BDP1000 Blu-ray player and never want to watch DVD again.READ FULL REVIEW
