    I think there is already one but it maybe for the GA9 which is pretty much the same TV.

    No idea when they'll hit Europe, but Sharp have just announced new models for Japan today, due out on the 1st of next month with a 1500:1 contrast ratio, so you may want to wait if you can.

    From the sounds of things they could potentially put Sharp back on top for LCDs.

    hello joury!
    only today i noticed this new thread and since am very interested in 37" model am looking for more info on tru D image processor (have been looking for some review of this line of Sharp, but up to now nothing :( :mad:
    In your opinion is it better than the Faroudja ( used in the Tosh, LG, etc), Sony' Bravia, etc or not? When tru D is on did you notice any halo or coloured glow surrounding the object on screen ? How pronounced is the improving action on screen image? Any other special comment/observation you wish to add?
    very grateful for your help jouri:hiya:

    TruD is a Micronas technology.
    Have a look on their website for more info.

    Thank you Daftboy
    already visited Micronas site, but was looking for a more balanced view, of course Micronas want to sell their product which may also be very good, have you tried it and what is your opinion anyway?
    Visited several shops in Milan, but is very difficult to find responsive assistant ready to answer your question:( . Also searched the whole forum, but nowhere i found any mention of it except a positive representation by nielo TM in its Buying Guide to LCD.
    Any other forum member has tried it and is willing to give his/her opinion?;)
    Many thanks

    For me, it's not all that, but I am very picky.
    Nothing has ever really struck me with the "WOW" factor when not using demo disc or any other material.
    When watching it normally it does improve the quality, but then it introduces some artifacts.
    Faroudja is a known name, and I thought I had this fitted to a Samsung DVD player purchased many years ago.
    After doing some reasearch and then taking off the cover, I found it wans't a true Faroudja chipset and was a copy. According to the industry it was prefectly acceptable with cheaper products that claim the Faroudja badge.

    I seem to be going off on one.

    Anyway it's down to personal choice.
    I prefer to turn TrueD off and live with the normal problems.

    I am asking as the philips pf7621 with "Digital Natural Motion" is
    only powerful enough to process SD .

    I have seen the 37 inch in action and was distinctly unimpressed. some horrific artifacts that I didn't expect to see on a modern lcd screen. Got it swapped for a lg lc2d which is a superior tv for sky+ via rgb scart and the built in freeview.

    i have the 37gd8e and it is one of the best tv's on the market! sd freeview is excellent, almost identical to the 'for pal' version of the aquos. of course the out of the box settings are pretty rubbish, but there are loads of menu options to play with to get the settings you find best.

    :lease: Stevie -
    What colour is the chassis of your set? Different sites seem to show different colours for the same model A8E, D8E, A9E or D9E all seem to vary and from site to site. I'm looking for Silver or Silver and Black, not gun metal / grey.

    Thanks.

    i bought the gD8e model 32 inch not so long ago and it is very good in all respects, Standard tv is very good, blacks are good, colour is not as natural as on a CRT tv but pretty good for an LCD.

    Last night was watch Bremen vs chealsea on sat tv and the picture was stunning as the source was very good. No artifacts, ghosting or blur on this set if the source is good. I watched a few dvd's on this set at 576 progressive and was very impressed. Not tried 1080i or 720P but should be even better at those resolutions. Well worth the money at the current price and looks good with black and silver trim at the bottom where the speakers are.

    I'd be interested in knowing if you get the price match with John Lewis; my mother-in-law has tasked me into getting this one for her! ;)

    Had this TV for just over 1 year (luckily with JL so have 4 years left of warranty).

    Switched TV back on tonight and it seems as though 1 of the scart sockets is now faulty as it only displays the picture in B&W. Put the scart into the next socket and everything was back in colour.

    Any ideas whether this is fixable or ideally we would like to get our money back to buy a newer TV? :D

    Have you checked the configuration of the scart socket ? If it is set to s-video then this will result in a B&W picture.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    No: no settings were changed, it was working on RGB before the TV was turned off, turned it back on and it was black and white - put the scart into EXT2 and colour returned so the scart lead isn't the problem, but it seems that EXT1 is.
