Its a good looking set, but, its kinda thick as compared to most new LED's and Plasmas. I am not kidding myself, this TV was probably 'put together' for the Xmas 2011 season, and, the outer case may be from an earlier model. Its in a good spot in my room, and, the thickness is not noticed :-)

All 3 HDMI inputs are being used (TV, BD and XBOX) as well as the VGA input. There is a component and an analog video input as well. I use the analog audio out to goto my audio sytem as there is no optical audio out. The digital coax audio output can only be used with the PC and the TUNER inputs.

As far as the picture on this thing....I mostly watch my HTPC (via the VGA input) and play XBOX360. The HTPC is fantastic, rocking at a very clear 1360 x 768. The XBOX, in 1080p , is nice as well, I do NOT notice any game lag, and I play a lot of online multiplayer games, despite the TV not having a 'GAME' mode.
The TV picture , of course, depends on the source. HD looks good on most channels (I have telus optik tv) and SD is watchable, actually, my 60" LG plasma didnt look as good in SD as this one.
I dont notice much of a 'light bleed' issue.

The menu is adequate, and, options are just 'ok'. The picture controls, have the basics, like contrast etc, but also have advanced settings to turn on/off and set variables for things like noise reduction and 120hz level.

The remote is basic, and not universal...the TV blended seamlessly being controlled by my Harmony 650 remote anyway.

I will Post My settings to compare to others in a bit.

Overall, great price, great TV.

I tried those settings. I thought the picture looked pretty good. Anyone tried anything else?

Use 'Game Mode' to avoid lag.

I just picked one of these up for dirt cheap to replace a 5 year old 60" DLP that has been dying. The settings posted look great and remove that horrible red tone from skin.

I haven't noticed any lag issues.

I just bought this Easter Sunday at Walmart NEW IN BOX $750.00 plus tax.

Seem like I have the PQ dialed in pretty well. I post my setting up later as they are very different then what has been posted.

I was curious if anyone noticed a difference using high speed cables. So far I am using cable I had for years and dont know if they are high speed or not. If I bump 120hz up to high you get a real smooth 3D effect but the screen cant keep up and it breaks-up on occastion.

On med the effect is still noticable but not as much.

The biggest problem I have so far if INPUT JITTER from the Playstatiion. COD will instantly give you a head ache and a BAD SCORE lol!

I have to try to turn ther 120HZ off and see if that helps attough I read somewhere else that it does'nt fix it.

My other concern is the power plug hard wired. I was reading on another forum this model is not actually manufactured by sharp.

I did the latest firmware version as well. Pretty straight forward. Does anyone know what fixes were done along the way.

Overall the PQ is really nice. A bit too much glare in our room during daylight but thats because it faces a BAY window!!

Would love to see other settings as well!
