Product Description

Amazon.com

The Sharp 27-F543 is a 27-inch flat-screen TV with inputs for DVD players, VCRs, game consoles, or camcorders. It has a two-line digital comb filter, which separates the color signal from the black-and-white signal to reduce noise and artifacts, resulting in higher picture quality. With MTS (multichannel TV sound) stereo and SAP (second audio program), the 27-F543 can receive and decode stereo and SAP wherever they are available.

The EZ Setup feature is activated the first time the television is turned on, and will automatically prompt you to attach the cable or antenna and start the initial channel setup with the touch of just one button. The built-in V-Chip is an electronic blocking device that lets parents control the programming to prevent children from viewing questionable programs. Using the onscreen display and ratings system, you can screen programs according to age and content.

Features include color temperature control, tone control, sleep timer, closed captioning, and VMS (velocity modulation scanning), which increases the refresh rate of an image, yielding a brighter and more accurate picture.

You get three composite-video inputs: two on the rear and one on the front for convenient hookup to your favorite gaming console or camcorder. The remaining rear composite-video inputs can accommodate any DVD player or video source. There is a rear S-video input and component-video input, as well. Also included is a universal light-up remote with DVD control (2 AAA batteries included).

You can find this tv at Costco for $250, which is an incredible price for a tv of this caliber... BUT, beware, unlike mentioned before, the quality is nowhere near HD, but if you're looking for a cheap, decent, "big" tv, then look no further. I'm pleased with mine except for the fact that it isn't HD ready, which I knew when I bought it, so that's my fault. If you are going to be watching a lot of DVD's as opposed to cable tv, then this tv is perfect; no matter if you have the color temperature setting at low or high.

*EDIT*****
I didn't know this TV came with component cable inputs. This means that this TV is much more deserving of 6 stars, rather than only 5. I've used the S-Video plug-in more times than my actual LCD monitor because it is almost like built-in anti-aliasing. Crystal clear picture that makes you just say, "wow." All my friends are jealous that this TV is part of my dorm room and they all come over to watch movies on it. It's that good.

The previous reviewer with the bad picture quality, etc. simply MUST have gotten a bad unit, because ours is absolutely FANTASTIC.

The picture approaches HDTV in clarity and resolution, the color purity, saturation, and subtle beauty is stellar and the component video signal in is nothing short of a revelation, only limited by it's standard-def resolution.

Reflection side-to-side is MINIMAL. Film grain is often evident, for example, even though this is standard-definition.

I would easily go so far as to say that this unit pushes standard-definition resolution to it's absolute max in terms of performance and all other metrics above.

You honestly owe yourself a good, in-person demo of this unit, it is stellar.

If this TV ever broke, I'd absolutely buy it again.

Like previous reviewers have said, this TV can't match HD. But I also agree that the only difference in picture quality between this and HD is a slight increase in resolution, this has one of the clearest non-HD displays I've ever seen. If you want to make the most of this TV, hook up your DVD player through either the S-video or the component video (preferably) and look at how vibrant and rich the colors are and how sharp the picture itself is.

absolutely fantastic?? but near-HDTV quality? "stellar"? lol. ummm...no.

you can see horizontal and vertical pixel lines (whatever they're called) even when playing DVD. Granted, it's not bad at all, but it gives a sort of washed-out picture overall. Actually I'm not complaining, because I bought this for less than $250 and like the other guy said, you get what you pay for. This is just an average tv. no HDTV-quality hear folks.

one thing that is below average is the speed of the built-in tuner. I don't have cable TV, so I hooked up my antenna into this TV. switching channels in the UHF band is horrendously slow. At least 3, up to 8 seconds of black screen before the channel displays. It is extremely frustrating for channel surfing. No problems with VHF though and I imagine cable TV has no problems, but UHF is a rough experience. Having said that though, the quality, once the channel displays, is much better than the tuner I was using in my old VCR before I bough this TV. UHF channels that used to have lots of static and noise are now suddenly clear. So i'ts got that going for it I guess.

Sound quality is average too. No bass whatsoever. Let's face it folks, this is cheap TV. You won't be disappointed with the quality for the price, but you won't be blown away either.

Hope you find this review helpful.

This Sharp TV is NOT sharp! Cheap, but you do get what you pay for. We were told at Costco that "Don't worry, this isn't a discontinued model or anything like that". Baloney. That's just what it is. The picture is marginal at best. Do yourself a big favor and spend a few more dollars to upgrade!
