I?ve looked up and read about 15 different HDTV/LCD available, and I
have came up with the one I think would be perfect to meet your needs.
Sharp LC-37D7U 37" LCD TV
The picture is referred to as fantastic, enviable, and stunning. It
has a full 720p resolution (it scales anything higher, such as 1080i
down to the highest the Sharp will go) and a 16:9 ratio. They say it
meets the deep black color of Plasma in an LCD.
It has many inputs(?two composite, three coaxial (one cable and two
antenna), one HDMI, one RGB PC, and a pair of FireWire terminals that
can be used to connect compatible D-VHS, Blu-ray, and hard drive
recorders. There's also an A/V output with S-Video, along with one
optical digital audio output?)
Also, it has numerous color adjustments. The set?s out of the box
color was reviewed as ?ok? needing a few adjustments, but better than
many of the sets out there. You can also get the LC-37D5U model that
has side instead of bottom speakers. The unit rotates on its stand but
does not tilt, and is wall mountable.
All three reviewers on Amazon gave it 5 out of 5 stars. Cnet.com has
it rated as the #1 LCD/HDTV available after reviewing 10 of different
manufactures and sizes. However, it is suggested at the price you?d
pay for this one, that Plasma might be a better option.
The remote is large and easy to hold/use, however some of the buttons
are under a flip panel.
Some of the reviewers say it?s been great; a few have had service
issues. However, it seems that the service issues that may happen are
balanced out by the quality of this TV. I would not hesitate, if I
were in the market, to buy this product after reading the reviews.
However, for what I?d be paying, I?d be comparing it to plasma
I found it starting at 2775.95 ranging up to 4299.99.
If this answer requires further explanation, please request
clarification before rating it, and I'll be happy to look into this
