First of all, I really do like the Sharp but after reading about banding (although I don't notice anything irregular at the moment), I started to get second thoughts.
However, this is not the only reason for considering the return.
I hate the remote control on the Sharp.. backlight only comes on after i fumble through and find the button, menu navigation is laggy and the biggest problem, no VGA port. I am using the TV for mainly Xbox360 only and I'm getting 1080p through component. I really wanted to hook up the xbox360 through vga to possibly get a better picture and for DVD upscaling as well. Also wish to connect my PC for some PC gaming.
Sony on the other hand, does have vga port which supports 1080p, now that MS released an update. I'm worried about the clouding issues with the Sony and Sony's 40" XBR2 is the same price as my Sharp 46D62U.
To get rid of the things I don't like on the Sharp (the cheap remote, laggy menus, lack of VGA port and some minor personal problems), would the Sony's 40" XBR2 do it for me? It looked stunning at the store and it does seem to have everything I wanted (vga 1080p, better remote, some other minor stuff) but I'm just really worried that I'll have clouding issues. I really like the Sharp but the lack of PC input (to use for my PC and xbox360) is making me want to get a Sony (or anything else comparable).
I need to decide soon or else I won't be able to return this Sharp. I am willing to sacrifice the extra 6 inches for a set that suits me better.
Thanks in advance guys!
