This is my third Sharp TV set - with the same quality as Sony, it costs a bit less( no cheap, but who wants cheap!). i have two another 42 sets - which work perfectly for many years, so when the time came to buy bigger TV, i bought anothe SHARP. it was 3 years ago; since then - no problem, it works good - except that those days there is no user-friendly search engine for shows - but it is not Sharp to blame, those are TV providers not taking steps. honestly - i think, that consumers do not need bigger screens, more megapixels - the one we have are perfect( the same as consumer do not need 300+ hp cars - this race is going nowhere), we need friendly interface to browse shows - as very ofter i can not find anything to watch, and frustrated, turn it off; if i have DVD i want to watch - things are better. I am happy with this TV, no plans to buy another one - and i am sure - this one won't brake( maybe subconsciously i even want it break, it will give me a chance to buy newer TV, one of those internet TV's) - but for now I am with Sharp TV and really appreciate quality and durability. The only thing - sound. Whatever incorporated in TVset is a disappointment; I always buy TV with a sound bar. wor Picture Quality Depends from the programs, of course, but if you watch guud quality DVD - picture quality is amazing) Sound Quality Sound is not good - you need a sound bar!
