Really impressed with the quality of this set considering my bottom $$$ investment. I have MANY hours on the set already since mommy spends 80% of her time at home with my daughter.
This set is always on, even if it is just background Disney DVD's or Sprout/Nick/etc and I haven't had a problem to date. (Knock on Wood)
For an impulse buy while running across the sale by mere coincidence during a shopping trip, I couldn't be more satisfied.
Off angle viewing loses some quality when out beyond 38-45 degrees from center. In the sweet spot though, blacks are very good and color has been pretty accurate since I calibrated w/ THX disk.
Have had a few instances where reflective glare has driven me batty, but that is only in a dark room when someone turns on lights in the background. It is not nearly as reflective as some of the sleeker LCD panels of 2009.
I've got an LG LH90 on order which should arrive later this week and I am looking forward to calibrating it and comparing Blu-Ray Planet Earth on the Sharp to the LH90.
I'll probably post an update later.
As for calibration settings, I haven't tweaked the set too far from my original settings and I think any adjustments I made might be personal preference. I'm still just really enjoying the set. (My personal Best Buy of 2009)
Best of luck w/ Sharp Support on your set and the vertical banding. Have you tried a hard reset?
