>> Hi, I'm Senior Editor, David Katzmaier from CNET.com and this is the Sharp LC32GP1U. This is a 32 inch LCD HDTV. It's Sharp's highest end model this year. It actually has 1080P resolution. It's the first tv this small we've reviewed that has 1920 by 1080 pixels. So you get all that detail. Although with a screen size this small, it's really hard to discern the difference of that detail between this and say a lower resolution 32 inch tv. But it's there, especially if you put on a computer display or something like that. In terms of styling, this looks a lot like the other Sharp Aquis tv's out there. There's actually a little silver chrome bow along the bottom here to add a little bit of an accent. Kinda looks like a crooked smile. The rest of the tv is very kind of boxy looking. There's this glossy black along the edge here. Below the chrome is a little bit of speaker perforation down there and of course, there's the included matching glossy black stand which I do think is a little bit big for this size of tv. In terms of features, the Sharp does include a button on the remote labeled game. All that really does is switch to the front panel inputs, although this tv, speaking on inputs is very well equipped. There's three HDMI inputs, including that front panel HDMI input. As well as a DVI input for PC connections and two component video inputs. One of those again on the side panel which is really nice. When we took the Sharp into the lab we were generally impressed by it's picture quality. It does produce a relatively good black level although on the downside, it really doesn't have the best color temperature accuracy. So we were actually thinking the picture looked a little bit too blue compared to a lot of the other tv's out there and even if you put in the lowest color temperature preset you can't really do much about that. Otherwise though, very good performing television. Anyway, that's a quick look at the Sharp LC32GP1U and I'm David Katzmaier. ^M00:01:53 [ Music ]
The extremely inexpensive 32-inch Vizio VP322 introduces a new size category for plasma, but its overall performance is no better, and often worse, than that of similar-size LCDs.
A step above most LCDs in terms of performance, features and styling, the Sharp LC-32D4U makes a good case for spending a bit more.
The HP LC4776N HDTV has 1080p resolution and a good selection of inputs, but its middling picture quality and features make it difficult to recommend.
The overall picture quality of the Sharp LC-32D43U puts it among the best LCDs of its size, although it has a couple of weaknesses.
Although priced well for a large 3D TV, the Sharp LC-LE745U series can't muster the 2D picture quality to earn our recommendation as a good value.
Excellent energy savings and decent picture quality make the Sharp LC-52D65U a solid value among bigger-screen LCDs.
Despite a couple of design glitches and restrictions, the Samsung SCH-A990 is a high-end multimedia phone that boasts a sharp, 3.2-megapixel camera and good call quality.
One of the best overall LCDs we've tested, the Samsung LN-S4096D delivers very good picture quality, along with plenty of features and style.
Albeit saddled with more picture quality hang-ups than most entry-level LCDs, the Sharp LC-32D47UT does deliver on features and energy efficiency.
CNET's Ina Fried takes a first look at the Entourage Edge, a dual-screen Android device that combines a 10-inch E Ink display with a similar-sized color LCD screen.
