    Looks interesting, but not much info about is there ? Some stuff on the US version, but nothing UK specific ... need to know more.

    Still, it's already down to £3.7K at Empire Direct.

    Anyone with first hand experience of this LCD ?

    Cheers, Carl.

    Very interested in this one.... is it a plasma beater ?

    The 30" looked very nice... but was a bit small...

    How do these LCDs compare in terms of brightness for daytime use ?

    Sharp LCD 37 costs 6000 Euros in Germany incl. VAT (approx. 4200 £). Have the English/German manual (24 MB) but cant remember where I got it from.

    The reported problem is dark shadow details. I have to see it with a real source. The demo DVD is worth nothing.

    There is also one posting in the iSA forum complaining about banding when not used with PC input.

    It could be my next TV until Christmas. Will check and report back.

    Regarding connections of Sharp 37LCD I received an answer from Sharp today. Although they are selling it in the USA with DVI they are telling me that there are no intentions to introduce models with DVI/HDMI in Europe.

    I wrote back that at that price only video enthusiasts would be potential buyers for these displays and by not offering them DVI/HDMI they sure are losing this main potential client base.

    I for myself will buy a Pio 434 (HDMI) or a Samsung LCD (DVI-D) and I told them this too.

    DO NOT BUY THESE (Sharp LCD37 or Panasonic 42 plasmas) VERY EXPENSIVE DISPLAYS WITHOUT DVI CAPABILITY. YOU WILL REGRET IT SOON.

    There must be a reason why european versions of screens don't have DVI/HDMI, and it's not going to be technical limitations.

    Ehh Joy's_R_us..

    You forgot that the new (6) 42" Panny series will have DVI boards... (I believe)

    And last.. A comment about the "YOU WILL REGRET IT SOON" comment..

    If you want it and can afford it, and it fits your needs today : Get it. (And enjoy it).
    Never wait for the next model or upcoming features if you dont need them today. (Then you will be waiting an waiting and....)

    As for the LCD/PLASMA fight:

    I belive that in a couple of years the LCP technology will improve so that it overtakes the plasma technology. But that is IN A COUPLE of years. (They still need improvement in viewing angle, blacks, color reproduction, responsetime etc. to beat the best plasma set's.

    Once again: Do you want something good today : get a plasma that fits your needs. or wait.... and get something better in a couple of years.

    Damn, why don't they give us DVI. I want one for my HTPC so DVI is essential. I might try and get a look at the monitor version (M3700K) as an alternative.
