What do you think about the sharp LC26D5U
Or is the HP LC2600n better
The HP is a Sharp. I think the HP version is better for the following reasons:
Sharp makes you compromise on inputs, the HP has them all.
HP gives you the extensive color management system (CMS).
HP gives you signal/channel strength information.
DVI input gives you the option for Digital-PC Analog-PC Digital-AV Analog-AV
PC via DVI allows 1024x768 1280x768 1366x768 resolution with options to fine adjust clock freqency and phase.
You can adjust screen position.
Besides color temp you can also adjust the backlight.
Provides i.Link output and digital optical out.
No one Sharp model has all these features.
The viewing angle on the HP is much better then the Olivia.
Dynamic contrast there's no comparison 3000 vs 1600.
More detailed picture adjustments.
Has the ATSC tuner, Cablecard slot, HDMI input.
More output options.
Some Olivia's do appear to have better on-board sound options.
I have the HP and am very happy with it.
If the Olivia meets your needs consider the 26HVX. It has the newer, faster, higher contrast panel then the other Olivia 26 and 27 inch models.
