Sharp LC52D43: Is it still a good investment?

by russmax / April 2, 2008 11:59 PM PDT

Sharp LC52D43: Is it still a good investment. I have a lead on this tv for $1500.00 - 10%. It is 720p. Should I take that $1500.00 and invest in a newer 46"/47" 1080P? I'm trying to stay around $1500.00 or below. I presently have a 42" edtv in the family room. I want modernize and a get a larger screen.

No good **investment** in any HDTV
by samkh / April 3, 2008 1:15 AM PDT

unless you are buying those companies' stock at rock bottom prices or you own a bar and need them to keep pouring beer!

TVs are tech toys so buy what your eyes prefer and your pocket affords.

re: No good "investment"

Thanks your input. However, please respond only if you have helpful input. Any time you put out money it is an investment. If the technology/quality behind the TV is outdated or insufficant the funds can be used on a different model or brand. If you soon have to replace the item, like within a couple years because it is "long in the tooth", it was a bad "investment".

THE TRUTH IS THERE IS NO INHERENT VALUE WITH SHARP HDTV'S...

THEY RANK ON THE LOWER END OF THE SECOND TIER OF LCD HDTVS.

SHARP HAS HAD A COUPLE DECENT AQUOS', BUT AN EXCEPTION RATHER THE

RULE. I'D DO MORE RESEARCH VIEWING BEFORE MAKING A PURCHASE!!!

Sorry to say but SHARPS are not that sharp. I'd look for a recently discontinued SAMSUNG instead; for a good deal.

Didn't mean to bust your bubble, but that's the reality.

Best shopping,

Riverledge.
