From the Manufacturer

Manufacturer's Review (February 28, 2009)
Sharp makes it easier than ever to enjoy your favorite movies in spectacular 1080p high-definition quality by including an integrated Blu-ray Disc Player with its BD60 series LCD HDTV. This 32-inch combines the convenience of an all-in-one home theater solution with Sharp's new Superlucent Advanced Super View (ASV) panel for a dramatically bright and crisp picture. (Learn more about what size TV should you get.) The slot-loading Blu-ray Disc Player placed on the back of the HDTV is also backward-compatible with DVD and CD titles.

Full HD 1080p resolution produces a crisp picture, and Sharp's Spectral Contrast Engine XD (Extreme Dark) provides a high dynamic contrast ratio, enabling deep blacks and vibrant colors, and a special dejudder feature results in the smooth reproduction of film content. The 4ms response time delivers amazingly accurate picture quality and it also features built-in ATSC/QAM/NTSC tuners, high-performance speakers with 20 watts of total power, and the following inputs: three HDMI, two component, one PC, one composite, one S-Video, and one RS-232C.

Integrated Blu-ray Disc Player

The Blu-ray Disc format has full 1080P resolution capability, and it enables you to take advantage of the latest surround sound formats such as Dolby TrueHD. This means you will enjoy high quality lossless 7.1 Channel digital surround (48KHz only ) that is bit for bit the equivalent of a master recording.

Sharp's Quick Start feature allows you to enjoy viewing high definition content on your big screen quicker than most other Blu-ray Disc players. Unlike many other Blu-ray Disc players, the BD60-series has an impressive startup time allowing you to begin watching your movies in approximately 10 seconds (time may vary depending on movie content, and the feature can be turned off). Additionally, the Blu-ray player features AQUOS Pure Mode, which automatically senses the aspect ratio of the Blu-ray title being played and optimizes the TV's view mode for the best possible HD picture possible.

Even your existing standard definition DVD library can look better than ever because Blu-ray Disc players are backwards compatible with your DVDs. By optimizing standard DVD playback signals to 1080P (when displayed on a 1080P capable HDTV with HDMI technology), the Blu-ray Disc player can deliver more picture and sound quality.


Full HD 1080P Resolution

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.

Superlucent Advanced Super View (ASV) LCD Panel

Sharp's innovative Superlucent Advanced Super View (ASV) LCD panel technology provides pure whites, deep blacks and a vivid range of color thanks to a dynamic contrast ratio up to 27,000:1 and LCD TV industry leading 4ms response time for true film-like smoothness. The new Superlucent ASV panel also applies an ultra-smooth finish that minimizes gloss, providing an excellent balance of light control that cuts down reflection from the panel. The leveled panel surface draws together external light and intensifies the panel brightness and contrast. The clear pictures reproduced on this panel takes full advantage of the details of a 1080p panel.

Additionally, 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 percent, allowing placement of theBD60-series televisions in virtually any setting.


Optical Picture Control Sensor

Optical Picture Control (OPC) is a sensor on all Sharp AQUOS LCD HDTVs that, when activated, will automatically raise or lower the brightness level of the TV to match the ambient lighting in a room. Think about how bright a TV can seem when laying in bed at night. OPC automatically adjusts its brightness level to make it easier for your eyes to adjust and be less likely to hinder the ability for someone else in the room to sleep while you watch TV. A dedicated Power Savings button allows you to set the Power Saving level that can result in decreased overall power consumption and increased backlight lifespan.


Manufacturing

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.

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

The picture quality is amazing.

(There is, actually an energy-saving feature that will allow this, but I haven't yet experimented with it, so... it may still be possible).

EDIT: I was wrong...the blu ray player takes foreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeever to load!

Received this 1080p LCD TV two days ago...this is an initial hands-on review. This is the first line of LCD TVs to contain a built-in Blu-ray DVD player. I needed this because of space limitations and for convenience. This TV extracts the highest resolution from Blu-ray DVDs for an exceptional picture. Conventional DVDs also produce an excellent picture and are upconverted from 480p. So far, I'm pleased. This TV will accept virtually all current video signals up to 1080p + PC input, making it as future proof as any current LCD TV. But there are some caveats.

1. TV Setup: TV is well packaged and protected. The Owners Manual is detailed and understandable. You must attach the base stand to the TV unless you intend to wall hang it. The black lacquer stand attaches easily using phillips screws and a screwdriver provided. All plastic protective coverings stayed on the TV and stand until final placement because black lacquer surfaces and LCD screens attract fingerprints and scratches. The base doesn't swivel or tilt. It is hefty and supports the TV very well.

2. Inputs abound: Seven inputs can handle most sources. They include three HDMI HDCP inputs, an Analog PC input, and various component/S-video/composite combos. Additionally, a USB input (called a Service Terminal) is provided for future firmware updates. I have an HD TiVo with HD Digital Cable service connected via HDMI. The TV and TiVo synched perfectly and the TV automatically labeled this input as TiVo...cool feature. Picture controls are adjustable for each input and maintain their settings.

3. Blu-ray Player (Profile 1.1, upgradeable): The DVD player forms a slight bulge on the rear right of the TV and is not obvious.

Verified Purchase
Looking for a combo tv/dvd player I came across this TV at the 11th hour. With a built in blu-ray that could play dvd as well, it was much better than what I was looking at initially. I wanted a tv for the bedroom but didn't want to have to buy and wire components, so this was a nice clean option since its all built in one.

After reading the reviews already on this page, I felt pretty confident this tv would be good for what I needed, and so far I have not been let down. Everything works well and is as described. My only gripes are that the blu-rays take a long time to load, but this is the case with my living room tv and stand alone blu-ray player too, so its just the nature of the beast. I gave 3 stars only because the frame around the tv looks a little cheap and has the super glossy plastic-y look, as well as all the little proprietary cheesy symbols printed on it on the front panel (dts, blu-ray, hd tv, etc). Typically that stuff would be on a sticker you could peel off, but here is permanently part of the finish. Also the picture is not quite as good looking as my Sony in the living room, so my expectations were a little higher, but for what it is, its great!

The biggest draw for me, apart from the convenience of having my media player and tv in one, is Amazon's service and prices. Once again, I was very happy with Amazon's fast shipping (they beat their estimated delivery time by a week!), and the white glove service (Ceva) is top notch. They bring the tv to your house in a small van (no bouncing around in big UPS or Fed Ex trucks), unbox the tv, set it up, test your remote, you can test out a movie, the full nine yards. Only then, once you've decided your cool with everything, do you sign off on the form and the guys take off.

Viewed at CES in January. Stunning picture in 1080P mode using built-in Blu-ray DVD player. Putting in a DVD automatically turns on TV and selects correct input, TV aspect ratio, and any user picture adjustments made to the DVD source input. In other HD modes the picture was very good. Did not test with Standard Definition source. Advantages of a built-in DVD player are obvious from a clutter perspective but so are the disadvantages should the DVD player stop working and require servicing. I will likely purchase when TV hits retail market.

As of 4 March 2009, TV is not yet in retail buying chain though some online sellers are taking pre-orders. Sharp's projected MSRP for this TV is $1099.00. Amazon's current price is nearly twice MSRP.

I don't normally do a full review until I have a product in hand but I was impressed with this first TV to have a built-in Blu-ray player and think potential buyers should be aware of Amazon's pricing disparity.

Have just had this set for a couple of days. Thus far it seems great with the exception of a few missing features/drawbacks I will note below...

1. Weak tuner - Whereas many HDTV sets these days have a tuner that is strong enough to receive at least a couple local public television stations without the use of an antenna, I found I was unable to get any broadcast without one. Even with an antenna, I am able to pick up little (likely due to the fact that there are concrete block walls in the room where the TV is currently located. Still, this annoyed me some.

2. No ability to change aspect ratios. Would have liked the option to view DVD/Blu-ray media in a number of different aspect ratios, but this feature is not selectable (except from the menu encoded on some DVD's themselves).

3. No timer! This would have been a small, yet convenient feature to include. As I'm a college student with a loft-style bed and the TV is mounted at the foot of the bed, this would have been a great feature for me. I'd like the ability to use the TV as an alarm in the morning (to have it already tuned to my local news or weather station), or alternatively, to fall asleep while it's on and have it set to shut off. (There is, actually an energy-saving feature that will allow this, but I haven't yet experimented with it, so... it may still be possible). Maybe this is a feature that could be added in a future update of the TV's operating software?

4. No ability to change the region coding of the DVD drive. (But let's get real... Are they really gonna publish this info? Of course not! Hopefully there is some way and someone will post it one day on videohelp.com). Sure would be sweet to watch PAL and other region-coded DVD's on this rig.

A few positive notes:
