This is an unbelievable TV - after setting it up and calibrating it, I watched a number of films to check the difference from my previous LCD and was very satisfied and in awe of the images.
Whites are brilliant white, blacks are as black as you can get for an edge lit LCD, colours are beautifully rendered, blues, reds, you name it. And gold...lordy. Watching the blu rays of Star Wars 1-5, C3PO's suit looks brand new - like it was made yesterday and polished for hours; when I've seen gold objects before on LCD/Plasma's, you barely notice them - on this, you can't stop staring at how real they look. In case you weren't aware, the gold is rendered so realistically because of the forth yellow pixel.
I really don't think the calibration options are an issue. Most reviewers complain at not having enough - and besides, once calibrated, you don't need to change them. Sharp have included everything and more to get your screen calibrated to your perfect level. I used Digital Video Essentials to calibrate this TV and found the THX Optimizer was almost identical.
I cannot recommend this TV high enough, it is nothing short of sensational.
Sharps snorkel apparatus is starting to stick out of the water,good to see original japanese Cos making a bit of impact.This is not a reflection on how good or bad korean TVs are.A debate like that is pointless IMO nowadays,but it is refeshing to see japan brands trying to compete,compared to the bland mass marketed plasmas we've being seeing for the last few years.

Chord’s QBD76 HDSD is a top-class converter that delivers a brilliant sound from a well-built package. It has plenty of visual appeal, too
There are more talented rivals on the scene, but the veterans are enduring greats
Cracking value for an all-in-one home cinema system with only a few spec and performance gripes qualifying our praise
