37"-40" LCD...Sony KDL 40S2000 vs. Sharp LC 37D90U

by Psych Doc / November 16, 2006 1:08 AM PST

Both can be had in the $1600-1700 price range (interestingly, the Sony 40" is $100 cheaper than the Sharp).

I'd really appreciate any feedback on these two.

Strengths, weaknesses?

How's the audio on both as I plan on using the built in speakers.

Any advice much appreciated.

Usually the built in speakers! This well may be the deciding factor.
I would suggest going to a store and listing to both units and let your ears be the judge. John

Well, Sony is aggressively advertising their LCDs

with simple, direct print ads challenging people to view their LCD sets in showrooms, side by side to any other TVs, to directly compare pictures.

By general reputation, I'd feel better with the Sony than the Sharp. Sharp has enjoyed considerable success with their Aquos series, enough to get a premium price for them. Slightly strange considering the premium price thing is often associated with the Sonys.

You are the one in the catbird seat, so go check them out.

PRICES KEEP DROPPING; look at some other SONYs as well.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
