Advanced Super View (ASV) LCD 10-Bit Panel

 10-bit panel
By changing the layout of circuits inside the LCD panel and by reducing the number of parts, Sharp engineers developed the slim-line design which reduces depth by 25%, allowing placement of the D64-series televisions in virtually any setting.


Sharp?s innovative LCD panel technology, Advanced Super View panels provide pure whites, deep blacks and a vivid range of color. The panel provides a dynamic contrast ratio up to 27,000:1 and LCD TV industry leading 4ms response time for true film-like smoothness. A 10-bit panel increases the color capability from more than 16 million colors to more than one billion colors. This means richer color and a more accurate, more brilliant depiction of the world on screen

Full HD 1080P

By dividing each pixel into two sections and developing an advanced driving system, Sharp?s new Multi-Pixel Technology delivers more natural and accurate color reproduction when viewing the screen from virtually any angle. This technology improves extreme-angle viewing by approximately 60 percent.

Full HD, or 1080p, contains 1920 x 1080 pixels, 1.5 times more scanning lines than conventional HD TVs. More scanning lines mean more pixels, more details and a better picture. Sharp?s 1080p panel uses a impressively high-speed liquid crystal to cut response time to 6ms. The fast response time keeps images smooth even in the midst of high-speed motion.

Four-Wavelength Backlight

four-color wavelength The conventional three-wavelength red, green and blue LCD backlight just got better. Sharp has vastly improved natural color reproduction with the development of its four-wavelength backlight system, adding a remarkably vivid crimson red to the palette?and changing the way LCD TV is viewed. The LC-57D90U takes the technology a step further with a five-wavelength backlight system, adding an even deeper green. With Sharp, the color possibilities are endless.

Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA)

You already know something about digital living. There?s the TV and digital video recorder in your family room. (And another set in your bedroom.) You have a PC and digital printer in your office, along with a network attached storage device. And you?ve copied all your music onto your portable music player and haven?t had to open a CD case for years. But getting them to talk to each other can be pretty tough. Why is it still so difficult to send digital content from one device to another?

Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a collaboration of the world?s leading consumer electronics, PC and mobile companies that has created design guidelines for a new generation of products that can work together ? no matter the brand.

Think for a moment about all of the photos locked away on your home PC that you wish you could access while entertaining your friends and family. Now, thanks to DLNA enabled devices, a DLNA-enabled PC can be accessed from the comfort of your living room or family room via a DLNA-enabled HDTV, where you can enjoy your memories with friends and family, without having to deal with the hassle and non-intuitive PC experience.

Or, say you recently downloaded your daughter?s birthday party video from your digital camcorder to your PC. Now you want to share it with your parents who are visiting. Without DLNA, you probably have to burn a DVD of the video or hook up the camcorder to the TV. With DLNA, you can just use your TV?s remote to call up the video on your TV. That?s it.

Manufacturing

super green
Opened in 2006, the Sharp LCD television plant in Kameyama, Japan, includes one of the world's largest roof-mounted solar electricity installations. All Sharp factories achieved green status according to international recommendations that combine economic efficiency, social-mindedness and environmental conservation.

At the factories, cogeneration and photovoltaic power generation systems supply approximately one-third of the total energy used. Combined with an on-site fuel cell system that converts energy without combustion, Sharp has reduced CO2 emissions by 40 percent per year. It's Sharp's goal that by 2010, the emissions avoided through the use of Sharp's energy-creating and energy-saving products worldwide will equal their annual global emissions.

All Sharp products are designed and manufactured to virtually eliminate lead, mercury and cadmium.

Connectivity

Sharp has incorporated advanced HD connectivity and networking capabilities that expand the HDTV?s functionality. A variety of multimedia devices can be connected to the set through any one of the three Simplay compliant HDMI 1.3 inputs (including one on the side), and the customizable remote lets you control all your CEC-enabled peripherals using just one device.

Connect HD digital devices like disc players, game consoles, and satellite dish components into the 2 rear connections and use the side-mounted input for cameras, camcorders, and laptops. HDMI is the best performing interface for displaying an HD source on an HDTV. With the convenient 15-pin dSub connection, you can connect to your computer system and play your favorite PC games.
All Connections
  • HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface version 1.3): 3 (2 rear/1 side)
  • Ethernet port
  • Component video: 2 (Y, Pb, Pr)
  • S-Video input: 1 side/1 rear
  • A/V inputs: 1 side/1 rear
  • PC Input (D-Sub): 1
  • RF antenna inputs: 2
  • HDMI-CEC
  • Headphone jack


Which Size HDTV is Right for My Room?

HDTV Size chart
With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience.
If you know the size of the room you have already, where you want to sit, and where your new HDTV should go once you get it, you can figure out the size HDTV you should get.
  • Minimum size = Viewing distance/3
  • Maximum size=Viewing distance/1.5

If you want a 46" HDTV, buy this one!
I had a Sharp LC42D62U and then upgraded to the LC46D64U recently; the original LCD was great but there are several improvements made to the new 64 series. The 64 series LCD's are incredibly slim and have a smaller bezel. They really look awesome wall-mounted due to the small profile. No other LCD is currently available that is this slim and has this picture quality. The 64 series TV's also add several tone and picture corrections, an analog PC input, a USB 2.0 port for firmware upgrades, an RS-232 control port and three HDMI 1.3 inputs. The picture quality actually seems to be slightly better which is amazing because the 62 series looked fantastic (specifications indicate a better backlight system).

I am a professional AV systems design engineer and part of my job is to keep up on new TVs. This unit is currently the best we've seen for a consumer model and we specify it all the time. I highly recommend this unit or any of the 64 series.

Compared to Samsung 1080p with tons of reviews and which I returned simply because of lack of picture formats this TV rocks.
In short, Samsung provide you with great and bright LCD panels but with zero technology. so a letterbox directtv movie on a 32 inch Samsung will be actually 22" viewing area on the screen. Try to use the picture formats such as wide and zoom and you get blurry and distorted picture which is to me impossible to view. This is were Sharp step up with it's technology. Picture formats are all viewable so you can super stretch a 4:3 picture without almost any distortion. The only con is lack of brightness (450 nits compare to 500-550 in other popular LCDs) but the blacks are superior. You can increase the brightness by playing with the contrast to full but then it is not like the Samsung whites but less eye soaring. I found that the Samsung brightness is great but after a while watching it sores on your eyes and the Sharp auto dimming feature is great for movies and it is fully controlled by the user.
Aside to that, this TV is probably the thinnest and idle for hanging on the wall. The connections on the back are extremely well thought after for wall hanging. It seems that what people complaint about in the previous models in series 62U is now fully addressed in the 64U.
I am perfectionist and recommend this TV. Most of my comparisons were for regular directtv broadcast.
HDTV and DVDs shows naturally prefect. The colors are well defined as oppose to Samsung and you have tons of options to program it to your taste. Sound from these little speakers is the best comparing to not a few LCDs I had. Very well done!
It needed 2-3 days to break-in and some customization. It is professional TV for professional users but very user friendly and within no time anybody can easily program the brightness, contrast, color and other cool features to its liking. This TV is also ready for the future and I find the 46" great size and very well balanced.

I bought this Tv on Balck Friday at Best Buy at 50%. I didn't stand in line for 2 days but i went to check out if anything was left at 7AM.

I needed to buy HDTV only so i went straight there. I saw this TV up on the wall and right next to it was Samsung 46"@ $2200+ and this was reduced to $1399. I compared these 2 & Sony(3rd in line). This won me over as i found Shark's eye(Video being played) was richest Black on this TV then Samsung & Sony.
Its beautifull to look at.

Got it at home now installed & running for more than a week.
I hooked it up to my PS3 with 3Pin cable and results were amazing .. I ordered HDMI cable 2 days back and can't wait to check out the picture with HDMI connection.

PROS:
1. Price, BEAUTIFUL & sleek finish with silver speakers at bottom.
2. Picture Qaulity is SHARP & rich. Colours are Vivid, BLACK is Deep black.
3. Easy to setup, thin like 4 pancakes, stcaked.
4. Regular DVDs/Video games look alive on this TV.
5. Tons of HDMI & other connectivty ports.

CONS:
1. Remote is too big.
2. Caliberation is not easy to do & i could find much help online as well.
3. I'm skeptical about Banding Issues(as i have read it all over the net for this TV) Although I've not seen any yet but i'm afraid it might show up on any fine day.
4. TV Speakers are disappointment.

Overall I'm very PLEASED with this product. I recommend this to anyone who's looking to buy a Great 1080P 46 inches TV.

This TV has pretty good picture quality, a slick design, and intuitive menu, however all this is ruined by a major design flaw -- BANDING. Google "sharp acquos banding" is you don't know what I'm referring to. It's basically horizontal and vertical bands of uneven uniformity on the screen. Shows itself the most during panning shots (hockey games, wall pans on HGTV, etc., etc.) It's too bad, because I really liked this TV, but the banding ruined it and I ended up returning it. Bought the Samsung 46A550 instead and it is by far a much better set. (And cheaper too through Amazon.)

I had always spent the extra money on buying TV's with the Sony models. Sony TV's for me had always been great. I decided to go with Sharp because I knew this TV was going to be on sale at a brick and mortar store for Black Friday and wanted to save money this go around. So I went to the store to check out the TV before the sale to see if it would be worth getting up early. After conversing with the sales person and seeing the picture and comparing the picture to the other TV's there it was a no-brainer. I probably would have paid more for this TV. It is awesome. I play playstation 3 games in 1080p and blue ray dvd's and what a picture. Its awesome. The sales guy actually talked up the Sharp which was less expensive than the Samsung and LG tv's. You can't go wrong with this TV.
