I'm sorry, I got the model numbers mixed up. I was talking about the LG 37", Model 37LC2D in my above post.
Since I posted that message and before the 30 day period expired to return the LG, I did buy the Sharp to try out and compare the 2 side by side in a face off. I wanted to try it out because it got a very good review in Home Theater Magazine, it fit into my entertainment center and it has 2 HDMI imputs.
However, I took the Sharp back after 4 days and have decided to keep the LG.
While the Sharp did have good black level, the SD channels were horrible; you cannot zoom or stretch a HD signal from HD cablebox or HD-DVD player, so you are stuck with the black bars, if it is not a 1:85 picture. The HD channels were good, but not near as good as the LG. The color temperature was off and it was hard to get a natural skin tone. If I had several hundred dollars more to get the set calibrated, it might have made a good set.
However, the LG was almost perfect right out of the box.
I solved the multiple HDMI Inputs by buying a Monoprice HDMI swither for $26
that works perfect.
