This is a great TV for regular television/cable watching. It has a number of inputs so I can have my son's Wii and xbox connected, along with the dvd player and not have to worry about him asking me to reconnect things everytime he switches what he is playing. The picture is great even when the bright sun is streaming through my house. I would recommend this television for anyone wanting a flat panel LCD TV for regular television viewing. Picture Quality I don't have HD cable because I am not terribly picky on picture quality as long as it is clear and visible. Maybe it's because I don't watch much in the way of sports or movies that I might want HD for. For regular TV viewing, the picture on the Sharp is clear, bright and all I need. Sound Quality The sound is clear and everything I need from a TV. Durability The TV is solid and sits well on my TV stand. I have little kids and I don't have to worry that the ocassional bump from a hand or stuffed animal will knock it over. Design The TV is sleek and looks good in my living room. Performance I have not had any issues with the performance of the TV. It works great.
