Is 65" too big
4 Star Review   By member glbrown91 - Aug 19, 2010   

Strengths: Watching HD sports channels and blueray movies are phenomenal. The clarity is unbelievable.

Weakness: No PIP, a lot of tweaking the color and sharpness.

And if you have small kids or inmature kids who likes to throw things, the screen is very fragile. Total lost due to a frisbee. I love this TV and plan on replacing it very soon

AQUOS LC-65D64U 65" Is perfect!!!!!
5 Star Review   By member avellaneh - Jan 8, 2009   

Strengths: streamlined design, small footprint looks great in any setting. Excellent definition and easy to set up! Great viewing from any angle

Weakness: Requires adusting the colors and detail for better picture

Overall it is a great TV that looks great in my living room. It has such a large image that you have to look at it from an appropiate distance. Otherwise, you'll see the faults on the broadcast that are not high denition. It is very easy to set up and to connect. I am very pleased with my purchase and greatly recommnend it!

Is 65" too big?
4 Star Review   By member da28fan - Mar 5, 2008   

Strengths: Ease of setup, clarity of HD broadcasts, HDMI connections, not as heavy as some of the others, and although expensive it is less expensive than some of the others

Weakness: Took a lot of fiddling with the colors and settings to get the picture right. Also a challenge to be able to see HD broadcasts on the whole screen as you have to use "zoom" to fill the screen. No PIP.

I really struggled with the specs on TVs this big, as there are not a lot of models to choose from in this size. None have PIP, some have 60 hz and others 120 hz, but so far I have not had any problems watching fast-motion with only 60 hz. Also seems TVs this big don't have some of the nicer features like PIP and cablecard slots. We get HD cable broadcasts, and had to do a lot of playing with the cable box settings and the TV settings on screen size, etc. to really be able to leverage the full size. But although a channel that says HD often broadcasts programs that are not really HD, so the "fit" of the broadcast on the screen seems to change as you switch channels. But it seems the true HD broadcasts are very clear and the picture is bright. But be warned, you can NOT sit close to this TV. I'd recommend a minimum of 10 feet back if not more. Lower definition or regular broadcast channels do not look good on a TV this size. The bigger the TV the easier it is to see flaws in the broadcast signal. I'm connected through component video for now, but have HDMI cables on order, so hopefully the picture will be clearer. Also the sound out of the TV just isn't near where it should be. You can hardly hear it! If you like higher volumes, you must connect to a home stereo. On full volume, it's not loud at all. Another word of advice, if you mount this, make absolutely sure the mount will fit before you buy it. I got two before I found one that would work. Many mounts say "will work with TVs up to 65" and so many pounds, and when asked these sellers will actually confirm it will work with this TV, but the mounting holes on this TV are 25 1/2" apart vertically and 17" apart horizontally. Many mounts that say they will work only have vertical arms that are about 19" tall, so they will not work. You do NOT need to spend $250 or more for a mount. The one I found was $140 delivered (bestpricemounts.com) and will hold up a house, will go across 4 studs, and has arms tall enough to fit and still tilted. Sharp makes a nicer model than this one in the 94U, but I couldn't justify a $3000 price difference just to get a 120 hz picture. But if money is no object, go for the 94U. Also, seems cheesy that you can spend over $5000 for a TV and it only comes with a 1 year warranty. Sharp, are you listening? Overall, I'd buy it again, but this size of TV needs more competition. UPDATE - with the HDMI cables, there is no more fiddling required on matching the broadcast to the screen and the clarity is perfect. No complaints.

Very satisfied with this tv.
5 Star Review   By member ZlickDealz - Oct 30, 2007   

Strengths: Sharp HD picture, lots of inputs, lots of settings, thin.

Weakness: Can\\\'t change the input labels exactly to our needs (have to use the available names already in there).

It\\\'s been over a week now using this tv and I am pretty satisfied. Upgraded from Sony 40XBR1. HD picture quality is amazing. SD is so-so (then again we\\\'re talking about such a big display that stretches the picture). Blue Ray is amazing. Had to do a lot of tweaking for the picture settings. In the first 5 days, once in a while there tends to be a popping noise coming from the back of the tv. It\\\'s gone now. I searched the forums about this and found it is a normal habit for this tv. The only complaint I have is that I can\\\'t re-name the input labels according to my taste. I can change the input label only to the ones that are already pre-programmed inside there. Other than that I have no other issues. Highly recommended.

Aquos 65" LCD TV
4 Star Review   By member alonsj00 - Oct 30, 2007   

Strengths: Slim footprint with awesome performance and picture quality.

Weakness: None thus far

I was looking for a 65+ inch TV for our home theater without having to break the bank. Factors for me included performance, weight, thickness, and cost. Sharp was the money shot for all of these and I am very pleased with the results thus far.
