Sharp AQUOS LC-46D64U
4.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Nov 17, 2011

The D64U Series is Sharps least expensive line of LCD televisions that offer a 1080p native resolution. For more information refer to the full Sharp AQUOS D64U Series report. Specs 1080p native resolution. 2,000:1 static contrast ratio, 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio 4 ms response time 450 cd/m2 brightness Inputs: HDMI x 3, Component x 2, Composite x 3, S-Video x 1, VGA x 1 Models with a serial number starting with C or above (D, E, etc) and a firmware version starting with S instead of U will display 24p film content at a direct multiple of 48Hz instead of 60Hz like the older versions. ... PROS: (1) excellent clarity and detail in the picture, everything is easy to see (2) sound quality is great, in most cases wont need an home theater system (3) good range of connections, and enough for most peoples needs (4) fights glare enough for rooms with lots of windows (5) setup is quick and easy, light construction makes it possible to set up by one person ... CONS: (1) HD component connections dont always look right, can create jagged edges

Sharp is still just Sharp
2 Star Review   By member FalconRaptor - May 11, 2008   

Strengths: price, number and location of inputs

Weakness: where to start?

Well, you know if you experienced Sony before, this one is just a joke. However- you get what you pay for. I guess I better stop right here. I had to buy one more LCD and didn't need to get one more Bravia. But listen up, stop misleading people, it is just a cheap Sharp.

Superb HDTV
5 Star Review   By member samiup - Mar 21, 2008   

Strengths: All good

Weakness: Nothing so far

well, this is one good deal, this tv is all good, one thing i advice who ever is buying soon (this tv or any HDTV). please prepare the right conditions for those kind of tv's to work, then complain later. an HDTV needs an HD output in order to work as it was intended to. wheather you are with a dish or a cable company, call them and make sure your box or receiver is good enough to get HD channels. do not expect your new widescreen HDTV to display SD (standard definition) channels as good as your boxed old TV set. why

Awful TV. If you have an eye for prefection then this TV is not for you!
1 Star Review   By member neilapril - Jan 21, 2008   

Strengths: Skinny design. Front panel is almost all screen. Really the nicest feature about the tv

Weakness: Banding, banding and more banding. saw three different TVs with Banding in all of them.

I can't stress enough how bad this TV is. When I first got the TV (CC black Friday great price) I was in awe of how great everything looked. Then during certain bright scenes I began to notice the banding. Not 1 band, 2, 3 bands, but 4. I figured I just a bad TV. Not so. Replace same thing. 52d64U demo at BB same thing. Review from Cnet.com nails it. This TV is not for the visual purest. It is really noticeable during Pans. Once you know where the bands are it hard to watch TV without seeing them every time. DON'T GET THIS TV. I know that it costs a lot less than other band of similar size, but it is still a lot of money and not worth it. Thank God the CC in my town allowed me to return it within 30 days after Xmas. Now I'm getting the Sony 52xbr4. I know that it is a lot more, but the picture is going to look amazing. (It’s still in transit. I will review when I get it)

Sharp Aquos LC46D64U LCD HDTV
5 Star Review   By member buckeyebuyer - Dec 20, 2007   

Strengths: Picture clarity, contrast, deepness of blacks, sound quality, handling of fast motion scenes without blurring, ease of initial setup.

Weakness: Remote control requires some time to get used to.

The Sharp Aquos LC46D64U LCD HDTV has lived up the high expectations we had before purchasing it. Before getting DirecTV HD hooked up to the unit, we were pleased with the strength of the Over the Air (OTA) digital tuner that enable it to pull in all the local stations as well as many PBS stations, even without a proper antenna being connected. The HD picture looks great with rich colors and deep blacks. We have been very satisfied with how well the Sharp Aquos LC46D64U has handled fast moving action in football and basketball. My sons are avid video gamers with Xbox and Wii with their racing and action games. The Sharp Aquos LC46D64U looking great and keeping up with the action in the games. We needed to slightly adjust the the brightness and contrast controls as the brightness was all the way to the right (maximum) and contrast was far to the right. These settings may vary with your experience. Despite requiring these changes, the initial settings have been acceptable until more controlled calibration is performed using a DVD calibration disc. Overall, we are very satisfied with our purchase and have recommended this model to others looking for a similiar sized HDTV.

Excellent LCD HDTV!
4 Star Review   By member TheBoogeyMan - Dec 3, 2007   

Strengths: great picture, very easy to mount to the wall, great cabinet stand (included), easy to navigate thru the menu

Weakness: none that I can tell in the 3 days that I've had it

The Sharp Aquos 46" Flat Panel LCD HDTV (model # LC-46D64U) is an excellent TV for an excellent price. I researched several tv's for about 8 months before I bought this one. It was $1600.00 (marked down from $2600.00) with free shipping. I bought it the day after Thanksgiving so there was a big sale price. The wall-mount hardware was $100.00 and very easy to install. If you want to place it on a cabinet or table this TV comes with a real nice stand. The TV is only 3.75" deep so it doesn't take up space like conventional TV's. The picture is incredible. I don't subscribe to HDTV service yet, but I might do that next year and the picture only gets better then. Since I like this TV so much I might purchase a Sharp 37" flat panel next year for my bedroom. Very impressive and I highly recommend it.

Response to kilammisa
2 Star Review   By Vibhu on Bright and Sleek - Dec 3, 2007   

Strengths: Slimmest formfactor

Weakness: SD is not satisfactory

I read the review written by kilammisa and found to be very convincing. I could also see the TV dimming and brightening. The changes were noticeable. But I couldn't notice it while watching my Dish network channels. I noticed this behavior while watching DVDs. Also, I noticed another new behavior. I could see cross lines during day time transmission. But during nights, everything looks fine. I am not sure if this is a problem with Dish Network transmission or the TV itself. My reviews are totally based on SD channels. I still don't have HD channels. Please follow up my thread if someone else has noticed something similar.

4 Star Review   Buydig.com   

Strengths: Great clarity,easy to hook up, one of the best pictures I have seen.

Weakness: Does not have auto sound adjust when loud commercials come on.

This is my 1st Sharp Aquos t.v. but after 3 weeks of comparisons in local stores found it delivered the best picture bar none. Also quite a bit cheaper than other major brands of same size set. Don,t look any farther, buy this one.

Best LCD for the Money
5 Star Review   By member mwjcyber - Nov 24, 2007   

Strengths: Incredible detail and clarity. Speakers are quite good for display being so thin. 25% thinner than previous model.

Weakness: Only looks best when using its full resolution at 1080p.

Got this TV Black Friday for $1299 at CC, and cant believe the how much TV we got for the money. The picture is great, and the TV looks good even when off due to sleek design and piano finish. I would highly recommend this TV to anyone...but make sure you get it on sale and don't pay the electronic stores highly marked up everyday price.

Great Quality TV with a Very Clear Picture - But Some Problems with Sound
5 Star Review   By member jonesle7 - Nov 16, 2007   

Strengths: The TV is an exteremly good value for the level of quality that you get. The tv was very easy to set up and the piano black frame and base really looks sharp. Easy to use features.

Weakness: The speakers provide pretty good sound; however, even at low volumes there sometimes seems to be some kickback. For quaility sound you will need to hook up the tv to a home theatre system.

This was my first Sharp Aquos after having previously owned the Samsung line. I have been very impressed with the tv and my friends and family have been a little jealous. The one thing that is important is to research the settings to optimize the picture. There are plenty of places online that will assit you with the settings. This is important because the factory settings do not optimize the performance or picture of the tv.

Great TV....Sharp is not just the brand....it describes this TV!
5 Star Review   By member gstrowig - Nov 10, 2007   

Strengths: TV dimensions & weight; picture quality, black levels, and viewing angles are excellent; speakers are surprisingly good; number and location of inputs; menu options are simple and straightforward.

Weakness: Remote and manual are not the greatest, but aren't awful; no PIP.

The Sharp AQUOS line has been recently upgraded to these models which supposedly do not have the "banding" issues that past AQUOS screens had. These TVs have some of the smallest form factors for the screen size; even the relatively powerful and adequate speakers are "tucked under" the screen. The stand is very strong and stable. The TV/stand assembly is very simple....8 allen screws for which Sharp has included the wrench. The manual does not really explain some of the advanced video controls well enough for a novice to learn. The descriptions still leave room for a lot of head scratching. Thankfully, most users will not need to touch these advanced settings at all. The remote is your typical multi-device remote but is nothing special. I purchased this TV at the same time as I purchased the 42" and 52" models of the same line (I guess my house should be a Sharp showroom!). I have noticed NO banding or color issues on this TV and the black levels are very solid.

Excellent HD LCD TV
5 Star Review   By member xrkzm - Nov 4, 2007   

Strengths: Slim and light. Outstanding contrast

Weakness: Built in speaker sound quality

Initially, I read reports about banding on this model. Upon initial setup, I examined my set closely under different lighting conditions. It is very difficult to make out the banding and its unnoticable during normal viewing conditions. The form factor is great, slim and light enough for me to install the stand by myself, and it takes up very little space. The picture quality is among the best I've ever seen. There is a wide range of adjustment options so you can customize it to your preferences. Main downsides I've noticed so far are the built in speakers and the fact that I can't customize my favorite channel lists more (there are 4 favorite lists than can only store 4 stations each).

AQUOS LC 46
4 Star Review   By member tt2 - Oct 22, 2007   

Strengths: Very Good sharpness, 1080i, HDMI inputs, very easy setup.

Weakness: Build in sounds was not the greatest.

This LCD cost $1300 during the Friends and Family promotion. For the price, it was the greatest deal. Attaching the Wii with the HD components cable sure made a big difference in the gaming environment. Make sure to tune down the brightness as it is set to the max by default. Tunning it down should give it a longer life and should consume less energy. All Sharp TVs seems to be set at the max to bring out the sharpness. There are sites out there that can guide you so you don't mess up the color.

i ordered LC46D64U thru EPP program. it took exactly 1 month for the HDTV to be delivered. spend 30 minutes to setup the stand, connect all video/audio cable. plug in the power, voila - intial setup screen came up for 2 seconds. it's not even display a whole setup screen yet. the LCD shut it downs, power and poc green light went on blinking non stop. i then call Sharp Aquos support #, and instructed that i can not do nothing to make it works (on Saturday). they will send out tech to fix the problem on Monday. i hope i do not have to wait for another month to watch the first HDTV program.

Sharp Aquos LC46D64U
5 Star Review   By member ASIC2000 - Oct 13, 2007   

Strengths: Very thin and light cabinet, low power consumption, HDMI 1.3 inputs, great HD picture quality, very good SD picture quality.

Weakness: Audio is weak, remote control could be better.

The PQ of HD sources is excellent, SD is very good. The audio is the weakest link of this TV just as all other TV's, but who would seriously watching movies on the flat panel HDTV without a real surround audio ? This TV is in my bedroom for watching local HD and SD channels, for movies we have LC52D64U in family room with 7.1 channels surround system.

Fantastic LCD
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Picture quality is amazing. Very slim and very light (60 lbs.) Very stylish, and comes with a nice backlit remote. 3 HDMI inputs

Weakness: Only 2 component inputs - not enough if your dvd player, cable box, and xbox all use component cables. If you use the component inputs on the side, you can see the cables sticking out a little bit.

The high def picture on this tv is fantastic. I see others complaining about how SD content looks on the set -- well SD content looks like that on all large LCD's.. that's why they invented HD! The sound is great too. I am very impressed. The weaknesses I mentioned are really not that big of a deal. The first one can be solved by buying a $7 HDMI cable (don't believe the hype, buy them online for cheap!). The second one is kind of annoying, but again can be solved by using an HDMI input instead of that component input.. and I can see the usefulness of the site component input for those looking to mount this close to the wall. I have not experienced any banding issues with this tv - the picture is great. It is light enough that I was able to install it on the wall mount by myself, and the overall style is excellent.

Ultra Sharp
5 Star Review   By member ha-evolution - Oct 1, 2007   

Strengths: Great design, solid blacks, very bright, thin, & light.

Weakness: Speakers are just ok, greyscale could be better

I've had this TV for about a week and I am very impressed. I shopped around for Sony and Samsung before picking up this Sharp due to the price differential and the gorgeous design. I love how thin the bezel and the TV itself are. HD pics are outstanding. Even SD sources are acceptable which was quite surprising considering my prior SD experience on an HDTV was less than good. Sharp offers plenty of picture options and they are remembered for each input. The remote is even backlit which was quite surprising. I would definitely buy this TV again if I had to do it all over.

AQUOS LC-46D64U
4 Star Review   By member optimaX1 - Oct 1, 2007   

Strengths: Lightweight, Ultra-thin, 1080p, hdmi 1.3, VGA port, individual color calibration, firmware update via usb.

Weakness: Unable to set color temperature manually.

I'm using the Aquos primarily with my HTPC. The HTPC is connected to the TV via VGA port because the PC doesn't have a DVI output. Connecting to VGA port already looks stunning. For banding issue, I didn't really spend time to look for one but I haven't noticed any. There is per connection picture settings which is really helpful.

Excellent 46
5 Star Review   By member sean10780 - Sep 30, 2007   

Strengths: 3 HDMI inputs, very thin, PC input

Weakness: SD Looks washed out, but with directv you will have over 150 HD channels early next year, no need for SD anymore.

Overall this is an excellent TV, No banding issues on this new 2007 model. This TV is very thing and doesn't weigh near the older 46 model. I am very happy with the purchase, the TV is worth every penny.

AQUOS LC-46D64U 46" LCD TV (Widescreen, 1920x1080, 2000:1, HDTV
4 Star Review   By member TEK TOYZ - Sep 29, 2007   

Strengths: Great color reproduction, VGA input, Super thin, Side inputs

Weakness: non 120hz model

This LCD really shines. The blacks and darker colars are sharp and retain an lot of detail that is lost on a lot of LCD's. I have looked at and bought a cheaper LCD in the past, but once you compare them next to a set like this you realize how much better the picture can be. I have the 52" version too and like it every bit as much.

Looks great to me
5 Star Review   By member Mapheew - Sep 28, 2007   

Strengths: size, color, quality of picture

Weakness: controls and settings

Purchased the 46 at a very good price. I am very happy with the quality and color of the set. Easy to set up and was watching it within 5 minutes. Sleek design without any bulging speakers that stand out.

46" LC-46D64U
4 Star Review   By member alluu - Sep 27, 2007   

Strengths: extremely thin and light tv 3 HDMI ports great HD performance

Weakness: SD tv looks washed out

I purchased the LC-46D64U after comparing it to the Sony and Samsung. For the price, this LCD is a great value purchase. Blacks are not as deep as the Samsung and colors are not as vivid as the Sony but those cost at least $1,000 more. The slim design is great.

Sharp's D64U = D62U on a diet!
4 Star Review   By member csrx - Sep 26, 2007   

Strengths: Slimmer bezel, lighter, hdmi 1.3, addtional hdmi port.

Weakness: Although I hear the speakers on this set have been upgraded, sound is still weak!

This is an updated version of the D62U. It's much lighter, thinner, 3 hdmi 1.3 ports, a usb port which I assume is for firmware updates. I haven't experienced any banding on this set. You will need a home theater system for good sound because the speakers are mediocre. I am currently using this in my bedroom, so I guess the stock speakers are good for now. Not currently using the stand because I wall mounted it.

Sharp's New Slim Line LCD
4 Star Review   By member mmstudio - Sep 21, 2007   

Strengths: Slim, light, beautiful

Weakness: Banding still exist

Sharing style with the old 62U series, this one actually looks much better in person. It is slimmer, thinner and lighter. 46" only weighs around 60lbs which is amazing. The silver line under the curve doesn't look cheap any more as in 62U series. 1080p sources are stunning. Sound is like most LCDs and a good home theater system is recommended. Unfortunately, mine still shows light to medium banding under light background. I guess I'll exchange it and wish me luck!

AQUOS LC-46D64U
4 Star Review   By member rottie_99 - Sep 16, 2007   

Strengths: AMAZING CLARITY!! Build Qulaity and connection availiblity (multiple HDMI and component inputs)

Weakness: No cover for stand opening when wall mounting. No Media card readers for picture slideshows.

This was placed in my gameroom and I have fallen in love with the smoothness and the clarity of the picture. I replaced a CRT so any improvement was worth it but this TV exceeded my expectations. Overall I would rate this 4 stars out of 5. Compared to the other TVs I compoared in this price range, I feel that this television has the clearest picture for the money and I will recommend to my friends.

A Happy Owner of A Great Product
5 Star Review   By member dynaudios - Sep 16, 2007   

Strengths: 1080P native resolution + HD camcorder = endless fun HDTV looks better too.

Weakness: A bit weak on SD content. Not receiving all HDTV channels throuh cable

This is definitely one of the best 1080p TV on the market. I have been using Panasonic plasma's for many many years, since I always saw better picture on plasma than on LCD. The sharp changed my view totally. Both color satuation and contrast are comparable with the best plasma. However, it's much lighter, and there is no "burn-in" issues. I use it with my HV20 HD cancorder, the picture quality is much better than 768p plasma. On the down side, it looks not as good when recieving SD TV content. Also, cannot receive all the HDTV channels through cable, compared to my current panasonic with cable card.

Sharp Aquos LC-46D64U - great LCD TV
4 Star Review   By member re2golf - Sep 15, 2007   

Strengths: 1080P 3 HDMI, PC, + lots of other inputs, both on side and back HDMI 1.3 for the latest technology 3.75" deep More compact than last year's model - LC-46D62U

Weakness: None yet

This is our first LCD TV - upgrading for a 27" tube that we've had for 10 years. It was well worth the wait - the picture is just awesome or both DVDs and cable (HD). We chose to mount our TV over the fireplace, but the stand seems like it would be a good option too if you have the room. We have not seen any issues with banding. The number of inputs is great - it lets us use the components we have now and is ready for when we upgrade them. The picture is crisp and definitely gave us the feeling that it was worth spending the money to upgrade our old TV.
