Please give us some ideas on your environment/viewing:


1. viewing distance?

2. computer use?

3. viewing habits? HDTV? DVD? SDTV? XBOX?

4. sunlit room? or dark dungeon?


this will help people assist you..


by the way, where did you see the sharp?

hello Jeremys

thaks for your reply. I saw the sharp at my local Hi-Fi store in philadelphia.

I saw the sony at a local CC.

My viewing distance will be 8-9 feets.

I am not planning to use the sharp with a computer.

I am going t use the unit mainly for viewing standard, dvds and whatever is available in HD.

I am going to use the unit with a Denon 3805 (receiver- with a DVI output) and the Denon DVD-5900 also with a DVI output.

Hope ths help you help me

thanks

If the room is bright and sunlit, I'd lean LCD, if dark, I'd lean plasma.


If you are going to have viewing from several angles, I'd lean plasma.

Besides computer use, yes.


There are current HD broadcasts in 1080i. With the sony, these signals get downcoverted to 720p. The sharp can display more pixels from a 1080 broadcast than the Sony. I have VOOM (satellite) which has 30+ HD channels in 1080i. (yes, some are upconverts) I can also watch CBS and NBC shows in 1080i.


I'd ask the hi-fi store to show you 1080 hidef images, so you can see yourself.
