    Sharp LC-32D47UT and the Panasonic TC-P54S1

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Today we'll be reviewing two very large TVs, the Sharp LC-32D47UT and the Panasonic TC-P54S1. Despite the large difference in their sizes, they're both considered entry-level sets. Keep reading for a closer look. 

    Sharp LC-32D47UT LCD TV

    The Sharp LC-32D47UT is a 32-inch entry-level LCD that provides a solid feature set and decent performance. Although it is not free of flaws, it has enough going for it to warrant some consideration from consumers in the market for an entry-level LCD. The LC-32D47UT has a suggested retail price of $550; however, if you shop around you can find it for just under $400. It is the cheapest LCD offering from Sharp in the 32-inch category.

    The LC-32D47UT's 32-inch display has a 720p HD resolution of 1,366x768. Although this is not as sexy as a 1080p television, at the 32-inch size you really won't be able to tell much of a difference. It's only at the larger screen levels where the difference between the resolutions becomes noticeable.

    Picture-wise, the LC-32D47UT does provide some deep black levels, especially for an entry level television. It also offers wide viewing angles up to 176 degrees so you can still get a decent picture even if you are not right in front of the television. Where the picture seems to stray a bit is in terms of color accuracy, which is not quite as impressive.

    As far as picture adjustments go, you do get some flexibility with the Sharp LC-32D47UT. The only truly unfortunate aspect of the settings is that the menu interface can be a bit hard to figure out at first, especially if you are a novice. This is especially the case with the advanced menu options, as they lack on-screen text explanations of what each setting does.

    The basic settings on the standard menu include adjustments for contrast, brightness, color, tint, and sharpness. There are also seven different picture modes. The User picture mode is independent per input, which saves you time from having to re-adjust all of your settings every time you switch to a different source. You can also adjust the six other picture modes, though they are not independent per input.

    Some additional picture settings are available as well within the advanced menu. You can adjust the hue, saturation, and value for each color such as red, yellow, green, cyan, blue, and magenta using the television's color management system. Color temperature can be adjusted, although only by selecting between one of five different presets.

    There's an active contrast setting and a film mode setting too. To help improve the quality of the broadcasts shown, you can employ the LC-32D47UT's noise reduction setting that will help clear up the picture. In terms of aspect ratio controls, there are four each for both high definition and standard sources.
