Cornerstone Design

cornerstone designThe SE94 series? distinguished "Cornerstone" design sets these models apart from the competition, combining a stunning, new textured finish with eye-catching corner accents and detachable bottom speakers to match modern home décors. As with the AQUOS D64 series, the SE94 series features a slim-line design that?s 28% slimmer than the previous generation and 9% lighter. The units also include a detachable table stand for wall mounting flexibility.


When connected to an existing Internet connection through the unit?s Ethernet jack, SE94 users can access AQUOS Net, a revolutionary service that is able to provide customized Web-based content as well as real-time customer support directly on the AQUOS television. Sharp intends that SE94 owners will be able to configure "widgets" to check the local weather forecast, get stock quotes or even follow their favorite comic strip, while watching television, all directly from the TV?s remote control. Sharp is working with Web-based content providers to deliver reliable, constantly updated information.

Through AQUOS Net, consumers will also have access to unparalleled customer support for their television, including the ability to have dedicated Sharp advisors connect remotely to their TV to assist in adjusting the TV?s settings and optimizing picture quality for the best viewing experience. This interactive tool, known as AQUOS Advantage Live, is easily accessible from the AQUOS Net Portal Website. In addition, AQUOS Net provides consumers with instant access to important information about their television. Consumers can find FAQs that explain HDMI, HDTV and other TV technology-related features, as well as view the user manual directly on the AQUOS LCD TV. A "What?s New" page will also be available, outlining exciting new products and news from Sharp.

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.

120Hz Fine Motion

The SE94 Series uses 120Hz Fine Motion Advanced Frame Rate Conversion as a way to help improve picture quality. This increases the display image to 120 frames per second, doubling the conventional 60 frames per second. Sharp uses a unique algorithm to help smooth edges on moving objects such as a swinging baseball bat or a speeding motorcycle. By creating new images and filling the gaps, the motion is smoother and sharper.
120 Hz Fine Motion

Five-Wavelength Backlight

five-color wavelength Sharp vastly improves 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 SE94 series takes the technology a step further with a five-wavelength backlight system, adding an even deeper green. The result is more accurate reproduction, especially of nature scenes.

Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA)

DLNA logo

dlna daisy chain
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.


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.


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
  • 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

I found the buying experience through Amazon's authorized retailer to be great. I was a bit nervous about spending such a large amount of money with a retailer I knew nothing about but the transaction was perfect. As for the TV. I don't know much about the tech side but the picture quality is outstanding. I did start out with the analog cable but upgraded to digital 1080p and found the money is well worth it. The TV needs to be fed the high quality signal to perform at its best.

Verified Purchase
I purchased the Sharp LC52SE94U LCD HDTV through Amazon. The actual seller was OneCall(Huppin's). After 3 days 2 pixels went bad. Contacted OneCall, they said it was a manufacturer's defect & they would not be able to help me. They gave me the number to Sharp customer service. One interesting thing about the product, when I opened up the box it appeared that the LCD screen had been pulled out and replaced in the box. The internal packaging surrounding the display appeared to have been removed and replaced. When I mentioned this to the person at OneCall he stated that they did not open the product prior to shipping it to me. When I received the product it was still sealed with two nylon straps each covered with the OneCall's labels to ensure it had not been opened during shipping. So, if it had been taken out of the box it was prior to being shipped to me by OneCall.

Called Sharp and they had me take pictures of the problem and send the pictures to them via email. I sent the pictures to Sharp and received this response via email:

"We have reviewed the pictures, and the unit is within our specifications."

When I responded and ask what their specifications were for this type of defect I received the following from Sharp.

The Liquid Crystal panel is a very high technology product with 3,147,264 thin film transistors, giving you fine picture details. Occasionally, a few non-active pixels may appear on the screen as a fixed point of blue, green or red. Please note that this does not affect the performance of your product.

From a geek perspective:

This TV gives a great picture. It has so far been great for me and outperforms my roommates 1yr old Bravia XBR in a few areas. I was holding off for many months from buying and finally these were reduced to a reasonable price-size ratio. I couldn't give 5 stars because there are several cons- none of which are deal breakers but they broke my heart to be missing or incomplete. Overall, great set and I highly recommend over anything else on the market for quality and looks, although as far as usability features go they could be refined a bit more.

As noted in there are some cons which I will reiterate here as well:

- Great contrast ratio.
- Size of the bordering on the set are small.
- No LED lit logo (sony's do that).
- Plenty of inputs.
- Great motion response: games look great. Great response in general actually: over a 25' VGA cable it looks great as a computer monitor.
- Audio input for couple with VGA input.
- RS232 port and decent specifications in the documentation to control the set.
- Detachable speakers

- No Picture in Picture: with so much screen, only one input at a time?
- No labeling of inputs: If your input is not digital it won't know what it is.
- PC inputs are limited in resolution: Even though it is not practical to scale up to 1080p for VGA and be visible, it would be nice- especially since the set is tauted as being 'Full 1080'. Although it does function and look nice at lower resolutions, not all of them are supported.
- No DVI.
- Speakers are not as great as they could be, although this set begs for wall mount and speaker removal (they are removable).

I dont think I'll ever buy any other brand when it comes to televisions other than sharp tv's. Not just because they have one of the best picture quality

in the business but more importantly it is for their excellent customer service and programs sharp has implemented for their unhappy customers just like I

was about a month or so ago.

I owned a 26 inch LCD hdtv that i purchased in 2004 for 2k. it lasted for about 4 years before the picture went out on me suddenly and surprisingly. would

have cost me [...] bucks just to fix it according to the sharp authorized technician. I was upset! Paid 2grand for a tv that only lasted 4 years? I was not a

happy camper.

I wanted to simply throw it away and buy a brand new tv of the same size for less than what it would cost me to fix it. but i was not happy and i wanted to

let sharp know about it. So i contacted sharp corporate offices and sent them an email complaining about the reliability of their product. I thought they

were just gonna ignore it and simply say sorry dude you're out of warranty.

to my amazement someone called me from customer service on the very same day i sent my email and apologised for the inconvenience, assured me that such

things happens once in every 10000 sets or so and gave me a bunch of options. He basically said they could get me a brand new tv of the same size for free

or i could upgrade to a bigger size for a pro-rated price.

well let's say i ended up with a LC52SE94U for less than 1/3 of the price that sharp advertised on it's website. It still cost me less than 50% compared to

the least expensive online retailer. I was very very happy and estatic.
