few weeks ago during a seahawks game a few companys had displays. One of those displays was sharp. They had the D62 under the tent displaying HD content. Thats how I created my opionion. Im sorry if you didnt like my thoughts on the D62, good thing its a free world. No dout D62 is a good buy for the price. But I think im going to keep my xbr3 I get alot of good feed back from friends on the overall look of the tv.Its a good fit for me. worth ever nickel
Blklacker, I am wondering how you were able to rate the Sharp Lc52d62u,because there is no one in the US that I am aware of that has actually reviewed this lcd having it working directly in front of them. I have seen Sonys kdl-46xbr3 which I thought was a great looking set. However Sharps contrast ratio 10,000:1 and responce rate 4ms1 are the highest in the class. I understand Sharp owned the lcd market until recently when they failed to keep up with demand and upset many dealers with orders. Sharp provides most industrys with their lcds, and the new plant in Japan should help keep production flowing.I also heard Sonys are really glorified Samsungs,which isn't a bad thing other than paying more for Sonys name.I know Sonys puts out a good product but the price is substantially higher than Samsung and Sharps lcds at the same sreen size. Anyways wondering how you rated this set and what was better about the Sony that you rated it higher.
