I bought this TV a year ago. I was very happy with the purchase. I bought a Peerless wall mount bracket to go with the TV. It looks great on the wall, and the picture is simply amazing: deep blacks, nice smooth gradients, sharp crisp images, and really good contrast and color.
The sound was a little disappointing at first, but once you adjust the sound settings manually it's pretty good. For movies I would recommend running the sound through a home theater system.
One month after the warranty expired the TV stopped working. We were watching TV last night, heard a couple of clicks from the power relay and the TV went dead, except for a blinking green power light on the front of the unit.
I called Sharp (on a Sunday) and someone answered right away after navigating the phone menu for a short time. The green blinking power light apparently means that the unit is not getting sufficient power to operate, according to the Sharp representative. All other devices plugged into the same surge-protector are working fine, so it's not a problem with the outlet. The Sharp representative couldn't comment on what was wrong, but I believe that the power supply circuit failed. He provided me with the number for an authorized Sharp repair shop near me.
A quick search shows that the Aquos line has problems with the power supply units failing and it's a known issue with Sharp according to some online posts [...]. Another quick search shows that replacement power supplies are available on eBay between $45 and $150. Instead of spending $500+ on getting this TV repaired, I'm going to spend $70 to get the part shipped to me and make the repair myself. If it fails I'll replace the Aquos with a Sony Bravia.
I'm quite disappointed that the TV didn't last longer, especially since we've all enjoyed it so much in the past year. It's a great TV marred by (presumably) quality or design issues.
My recommendation: buy the extended warranty (on any TV you pick).

I bought a new Sharp LC-37D62U on-line. It was pretty, the right size for my space, the specs were great and customer reviews were favorable. My experience to this point has been less than favorable.
The picture quality is pretty good, good viewing angle, very dark blacks and good contrast. Unfortunately, the audio will not lock onto two local digital sub-channels, it cuts in and out. I've tried a different antenna, with no change. Two other digital tuners in the house work fine on all channels. Sharp customer service tried to diagnose the problem by phone and finally decided to dispatch a local repair center. The local repair center says the problem is with the Sharp firmware and cannot be resolved until Sharp updates the firmware. Sharp denies a firmware issue and blames the local broadcaster. I asked why my other tuners worked, they said their tuner doesn't work like other peoples'. They are half right.
So, here I sit with a new Sharp TV that for whatever reason will not work with two of the local stations. I guess my options are to move to another city and hope those broadcasters work on Sharp TVs, watch the other channels or buy another new TV. If I get another TV, I don't think I'll consider Sharp as an option!

This is an awesome LCD. Sharp, in my opinion, has it all including a great price. The contrast ratio is very important to have the best images, colors and true black/whites. The Aquos has one of the highest
available for the price. Great for gaming & action scenes as well. The vendor shipped the product out quickly...ordered tuesday night and arrived thursday by 3:00pm...very nice.

Got this TV at an Atlanta area MART that sells many BRANDS (hint, hint), and got it at an excellent price (after salesperson cuts and rebates, got it for just over $900). Its a different model number (store-specific), but the same exact TV.
Here are lists for the pros and cons:
- Excellent picture, and easy to plug-n-play
- The TV menu/options has a TON of pick-and-choose settings, which leads to an endless amount of tweaking to get the best possible picture.
- The set looks nice mounted on the wall.
- The sound for TV/Cable is excellent.
- The HD picture for the cable is crisp and clear!
- Energy save features are great (auto-shut off, signal detection, automatic brightness adjuster, etc).
- Main Con: The picture from playing Blu-Ray movies (connected with a proper 1080p HDMI cable from a PS3) is not as crisp as some other TVs I have seen. I've been told that this is most likely due to the size of the TV, as larger TVs would be able to deliver 'crisper' detail (as the 1080 horizontal lines wouldn't be as compacted).
Was told by a certain store's 'Dork Group' that at 37', 1080p is only JUST more noticeable that 720p would be. They said in order for 1080p to be fully observed, a screen size of 42' and greater is best.
- The sound of both blu-ray and regular DVDs leaves something to be desired. I don't have a home theater set-up, and the speakers on the TV don't seem to handle the dolby digital sound as well as they should (can watch TV with volume in the teens...need to hike it up to the upper 30's to mid 40's for DVD/blu-ray playback). I think its just an issue with the TV's ability to compress the higher audio input.
- All inputs are in back of the TV (not side-mounted). Thus, if your TV is mounted to the wall, once its there, changing out cords and plugs is a challenge w/o removing the TV from the wall.
- On-TV buttons (power, volume, etc) are on top of the TV. Again an issue if the TV is mounted on the wall.
- On occasion, it takes the TV up to 10 seconds to read a new signal. For instance, playing a Blu-Ray disc, the rating screen is typically in 720p resolution. The TV will show 'lag' in decoding the 720p signal vs. the 1080p of the rest of the disc.
Sharp made a nice HDTV here, but the designing of the TV is quite flawed and poorly executed. Plus, the information about the 1080p resolution on this size TV is a little off-putting. I recommend saving a few hundred bucks and going with the 720p model for the 37' inch set. Also, be sure to consider needing additional speakers in order to fully enjoy DVD/blu-ray sound.

Great buy, very satisfied with size, unless its right next to a 40 or 42 inch tv you would never know its a tad smaller. Wonderfully clear picture, I use a digital antenna and pick up amazing free digital local TV. Really really impressed by picture quality.
