Elegant Design and HD Performance

Full HD LCD Panel

The LC-46D78UN features full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution, for the sharpest picture possible. The CCFL-backlit LCD panel provides high contrast ratios for deep blacks and vibrant colors during both dark and bright scenes.

High brightness means you can position the LC-46D78UN virtually anywhere--near a window, a door or other light source--and the picture is still vivid. A wide 176-degree viewing angle means the whole family gets to enjoy it.

Built-in Tuners

The LC-46D78UN includes ATSC/NTSC tuners to receive off-air broadcasts, as well as digital cable QAM capability for receiving non-scrambled digital cable programming. It's ready for available DTV and analog TV programming.

Three HDMI Inputs

For convenient connection to digital devices, three HDMI inputs are provided, along with two HD component inputs, for a grand total of five 1080p compatible inputs. A pair of composite inputs is also provided for non-HD sources.

120Hz Fine Motion Advanced

Sharp uses a unique algorithm to create images that help smooth sharp edges on moving objects, like a running play in football, a player swinging a bat or a car chase. By creating new images and filling in the gaps, motion appears smoother and less jumpy. The result is a smoother picture with more detail.

Sharp LC-46D78UN Gaming Mode
Vyper Drive game mode helps to eliminate the lag time between the game console and TV.
OPC (Optical Picture Control)

Most television viewing does not take place under perfect lighting conditions--sometimes you watch TV with daylight streaming in the windows, and other times you watch in the middle of the night while your spouse tries to sleep beside you. Sharp's OPC (Optical Picture Control) system automatically adjusts the TV's brightness level based on ambient light, so you'll be able to see a bright picture in a bright room and a not too bright one when the room is pitch black--automatically. Think of OPC as an automatic light-sensing dimmer for your television.

Vyper Drive

Vyper Drive game mode helps to eliminate the lag time between the game console and TV. When Game Mode is activated, the signal is streamlined resulting in transmission 5x faster than normal mode.

Solid Audio

A pair of bottom-mounted speakers provide 16 Watts (8w + 8w) of audio, enough to fill most rooms. Sharp's "Sound Surround" feature creates a surround effect using just two speakers.

Wall-Mount Ready

Easily remove the included table stand and you're ready for wall-mounting.

On the plus side - Good picture; relative ease of operaton; OK (not spectacular) sound.

On the negative side - a major tuner issue.

There is only one input marked cable/antenna. With this TV, it is possible to search for and tune to EITHER cable signals or AIR signals but NOT both at the same time, even if they both come from the same box or signal input. If you get cable and air channels through the same input, you have a problem. Thus, if your signal includes both channels like 4.1, 5.1, etc. and channels like 7,8,9,10 there is no way to switch from one set to the other. The only solution (per the company's own hotline) is to use a SECOND tuner and run one through cable/antenna and the other through HTMI or another input. The second tuner can be a cable box, a DVR WITH its own tuner or something similar.

We think this is a major feature weakness and have downgraded this TV to 4*.

If you have the kind of TV signal that combines air and cable channels through one input and don't want to buy a second tuner, then we DO NOT recommend this set.

Otherwise, it is fine.

This TV is a very slick model made by sharp. The all black trim gives the TV a clean look and makes the TV be able to mesh well in any room. Watching HD channels on this 1080p model makes the things on TV look like they are right there in the room with you. Also the 120Hz makes the connection extremely fast and is great for playing video games without an annoying lag. If you are looking into buying a new TV, I would highly recommend this one. It is not the newest TV, but the LCD is not going to be obsolete like the plasma due to the new LED, and because it is older you can get the TV for a significantly lower price.

I install DirecTV service for a living. I purchased this television after seeing and looking at MANY hi Def flat screen televisions. I considered buying a LED Back-lit television but when I weighed the cost versus the products available I could not justify spending the extra money. This television though a CCFL Back-lit rivals ANY and I mean ANY of the Brand new top of the line LED back-lit televisions.

You can find this television for near or less than the $1000 price point at many different places. this television produces amazingly clear and vibrant video. Watching sports on this television is enjoyable to even the biggest sports fan and absolutely amazing. I highly recommend this unit. No one makes a Better LCD television than SHARP. The SHARP Aquos brand televisions are the best on the market. You will not regret purchasing one ever. Pair this with your Surround sound system A Sharp Aquos BLU-Ray player and or the Sharp HT-SB500 sound-bar or similar and you'll have an entertainment system that you will enjoy for years to come.

The picture is great. Consumer Reports gave it a good review. I like how the screen adjusts the brightness according to the light in the room. Great product.

Line features the breathtaking X-Gen Panel model that creates bright vibrant images while maintaining gorgeous dark areas. The TV will automatically adjust to daylight or nighttime conditions. These models are 240Hz and intelligently creates and inserts images in fast motion sequences to fill in gaps for an exceptionally smooth picture with stunning detail. Sports and fast-action movie sequences look almost too good.These TV's also feature "Vyper Drive" gaming mode that creates a "Gamers Dream" effectively eliminating all lag during videogame play. Imagine being able to spin your character 180 degrees ultra-smoothly with zero blur? That's what this TV is capable of. The Sharp AQUOS is an environmentally conscious LCD that requires fewer resources to manufacture and less energy to use with extended operating life making this our highest rated pure LCD TV.
