Sharp Aquos LCD 2007 speculation thread: D92? TruD? HDMI 1.3? - Page 8

I am certain we will see a 42" d92, the question is: will it have the same specs as its larger counterparts?

One other thing that I just remembered as I perused the 37d90 thread, I hope these new Sharp TVs will accept 1080p over a VGA-DVI adaptor in contrast to the 37d90 that I believe does not (very important for us Xbox 360 owners).

This is more for folks who haven't seen this information before. The videos are from IFA. In the middle of the video shows comparisons of 1200:1 vs 2500:1, 4ms vs 6ms, and color comparison.


Low res video fast:

High res video (slow but recommended)

http://media.divx.com/charbax/ifa2006/IFA2006_Sharp.avi

I especially like the contrast comparison. It would have been nice to see a TruHD versus not.

I asked and here is what I was told:

"D92U series is only going to be 46 or 52, Sharp won't be offering another 57 or 65 until they can bring the price point downthe market is way to competitive now!"

Speculate away! hehehe

Great for me. 46" is what I want.
Would really like to see the full specs now, but guess we might have to wait one more month for CES. Hopefully no more.
post #220 of 3473
I'm still pretty sure we will see a high-end sub-46" LCD from Sharp in the 1Q of 2007. Every other major LCD manufacturer has a high-end model in that size.
post #221 of 3473
i really wish more people knew about this thread. Because of the banding issues on the 62's, I have decided to wait for the 92's. That seems to be the concensus with a lot of people on the 62's owner's thread. Unfornately all that is discussed there are the banding issues. I think a lot of those people would be interested in this thread.

Thanks TF! I'm really hoping you're right and that they're available by early February. If you hear any more on when they'll be available for purchase, let us know.

One more question. Do you know if this set will have an ethernet port? I forgot to run an ethernet cable in the wall, and I'm trying to figure out if it matters.
post #223 of 3473
I can't imagine that Sharp wouldn't release another high end 37" 1080P. We know they have a 37" D62U but it is not in the U.S. yet. If so what is the point of the LC-37D90U and anyway I can't find it in the stores anymore and Best Buy said they aren't allowed to order it any longer? The specs between the D62 and D90 would be the same or close by an input or two.

From IFA Sharp annouced a 1,000,000:1 mega contrast 37" LCD (probably will cost $50k+ or some crazy number like that). Brightside sells a 37" 200000:1 contrast for 49k. So I imagine that 37" is still on the radar.

I just noted that Wired put the LC-37D90U as one of their top picks in the 37-48" range. http://www.wired.com/testguide/fall2...ons/index.html. Also Sharp received the same from MSNBC and Consumer Reports. I just couldn't imagine them not coming out with another 37" one but WHEN....

I'm ready to buy now not next June.

post #224 of 3473
well im in market for 42" or could go with an oddball size of 45" if they did that again, but 46" is too wide for my specs. I really hope they dont START at 46"

if its feb march latest but no more
post #226 of 3473
does anyone have any insider info or maybe just a hunch about the actual dimensions? Im working in a tight space and I really need a tv that is 44.25" wide or less (perferably less). The only 46" LCD I have found that will fit my space is the Sony 46" (not xbrs).

Im wondering if along with HDMI 1.3, etc etc etc advancments if they are also trying to make these things thinner....
post #227 of 3473
A good reference for dimensions is current sharp range. PDF for current EU models

Note TruD line on details.

Does TruD mean 100/120 Hz technology ;does eu models have 120Hz already? I might even buy Sharp now since PAL models can also handle ntsc(usually).
post #228 of 3473
Add me to the list of former D62 Potential Buyers turned D92 potential buyer...I would have very seriously considered buying the D62, but was also scared away by the banding...

Cheers to waiting for the D92 (hopefully with out banding and,or other issues)...or another LCD from another manufacturer with similar features and a similar price point...

I hope Sharp didnt lose my sale...
post #229 of 3473
Why would you assume the 92 series will be banding free?
It will come off the same line as the 62.
The fix for the 62 is likely not a minor one.
It is due in 2 months.

There may possibly be a "d92 banding" thread by March 2007.
post #230 of 3473
i really hope they fix this banding issue. i have already decided to wait for 92's. I don't want to buy one, and then get stuck in the same return/exhange loop as th 62 owners.
post #231 of 3473
Count me also as an ex-D62 buyer. No way am I entering the fray with the banding issue getting bigger everyday. Will wait for the D92's and if they aren't 100% band-free, I'll take another look at the SXRD RP's. Keeping my fingers crossed on the D92's.
post #232 of 3473
I think it would be a collosal mistake for Sharp if they did not offer a d92 in the 42" size, and at the full specs of the model line, not a "lite" model like the 42d62. If they don't offer a full-spec 42" d92, they will lose that entire market segment to Sony and Samsung.

I think the 40-42" market segment is too big to ignore.

I agree. Additionally, isn't this the biggest market as well? Perhaps, around these forums most people are looking for big TVs, but the average consumer is most likely to buy in the 32" - 42" range, correct?
post #234 of 3473
I have good new for some bad news for others.GOOD NEWS the banding problem is not fixable .SO new sets for sharp will be exchanged for old ones no matter when you got it.The new set will be avalibal in January sometime.The 42 models will be dicontinued.They will be concentrating only on 46 and 52".I got this news from The AV manager of VISIONS in vancouver BC CANADA.NOw as for what they are doing in the USA market i have no idea.

Considering that most people will have no clue that the 42" is not as robust as the bigger sets, I doubt Sharp will be concerned.

As much hope as it is to hear that I don't know how credible that is. The Sharp people might have just told the manager what he wanted to hear since he knows of the banding issue.


CES will be at January 8-11
Less then a month away
to find out all the official info & release dates.
post #237 of 3473
Looking forward to hearing that info from the Conference!!!
post #238 of 3473

post #240 of 3473
CES is getting too close now with no apparent resolution of the banding issue in the D62. They have to be close to starting production runs on the 92s (at least test builds). I am now worried that they will not have the banding issue fixed before the 92s come out.
