I finally got my 37D90U after many problems and I open it up and it is damaged. The right bezel is cracked, looks like a hard blow to the side somehow, but the glass looks fine and I've turned it on and everything looks great. It was a private sale and looks to be a shipping issue ... UPS is sorting it out.
My early impressions are this set is great, feels better than the 45GD7U I have at work. If any potential buyers have any questions I'm happy to do my best to answer them. So far I only have three complaints:
o There aren't enough inputs, 2 HDMI is nice, but I'd like to see at least another component and another s-vid/composite.
o It seems the left side of the display is a bit brighter than the rest, a little bit of uneven backlighting. Only noticible (for me) when viewing super aspect ratio DVDs (i.e. substatial letter boxing).
o I've typically always purchased sony hardware and always liked their remotes ... this remote just doesn't feel the same, although the OSD looks nicely done.
So now a question for you all. Looking at the bezel, it appears the inner black and outer "titanium" parts are one piece. It looks easy enough to unscrew and remove from the back (haven't tried), does anyone know some place that could order this part for me? Maybe directly from Sharp? Anyone know if it is really this easy to replace this part? See the image below for the damage:
EDIT: A quick question. I haven't looked in the instructions so sorry if this is obvious, but it looks like only the "dynamic" video settings are configurable? If you open the remote and hit the "av mode" button it cycles through different video modes, but the only one we can change is "dynamic", right?
