    it was very easy to set up and it has a user name and address menu when you first plug it in very handy if the police find your lcd if it has been stoled
    i set it up with the freeview that come inside the tv first that seemed great and very easy ,the picture looked abit blocky at first but a few hours later it looked much better ,,dvd s look great through this set tv picture is ok but im used to the crt loewe articos so ive been spoilt ...

    on the whole im happy with the tv and i cant wait to hang it on its unicol wall mount the picture in picture is great and it a loverly crisp image .it only uses 150w of electric so you can tell the missis that you need one and after a short time it pays for itself :thumbsup: i bought it for £1800 it was a tough choice between the pany and the philips but for me it was down to the looks of the set and having a freeview built in its ideal for a bedroom.

    Leon,

    Thanks for posting these pictures. It is useful to see the process from start to finish - it gives others a better idea of what to expect.

    The TV looks great by the way!

    I've noticed very little talk on the new range of HD true 16:9 LCD's (which make last years look very grey...).
    I bought myself a Sharp LC-32GD1 Friday. Very nice deep rich blacks (well as close to black as LCD can go :blush: ) and super bright whites with no bluring/smearing (games sometimes do, but that's easily fixed by turning Quick Shoot on which can sometimes cause a bit of picture noise). I'm debating wall mounting it, not too sure whether to or not...

    Quick picture -
    [​IMG]

    So far the things I don't like are (it's only early days so my list might grow/shrink a bit) -

    1. The built-in DVB tuner picture quality.
    It's picture quality seems pretty poor compared to my old Pace Twin (edges and object outlines have a heavily compressed look, as usual it's even worse on the ITV channels). Maybe it's just that the quality of the picture shows just how poor the quality of digital is in general...
    The EPG is pretty basic and only gives now and next details, it does have a theme search feature so I guess an over the air update will get the 7 day guide working (and hopefully get rid of the general over compressed look). The DVB tuner menu's and OSD's are pretty basic too. Roll on the opdates (anyone know where I can find out when an update will be airing?).

    2. The AVC box gets very, very, very hot! :eek:
    I might have to take it out of my enclosed cabinet, the manual claims it needs 5cm, I've given it about 6cm all round (heat does build up in there when the glass doors are closed though)...

    3. The system cable is huge! :eek:
    It's about 7m long and seems to be made of lead! It doesn't bend very easily, it consists of a DVi plug, S-video type plug and what looks like an HDMI all in a weighty 3 core cable (see it at Sharps spares shop here. £120 for a replacement :eek: ).

    4. The remote is a bit ugly :laugh:
    I know, it's only a remote. It's not very well planned out either (some features need you to use both hands) and it'd of been nice to have a button to turn Quick Shoot on and off instead of having to go delving into the menu.

    A quick selection of my pictures of it can be found here (pictures taken quickly with an olympus 2.1mp camera).

    Pictures are from its own DVB tuner and DVD (DVE PAL) via an Xbox in RGB :suicide:
    Quick Shoot and the black extension features were disabled for the pictures...

    If anyone has any questions or wants any pictures of something in particular let me know and I'll try my best to help out...

    £2,650 :eek: :rolleyes:

    I was looking at getting the 37", but the price made me a bit giddy...

    In all though I think that's a damn good price for the new 32" Titanium, considering I bought it from a regular highstreet superstore less than 5 minutes up the road. Shop price was £2,999, I bargained for over an hour :D It's also on buy now pay later (free for 6 months :clap: ). And to cap it all off the Sharp free 3 year warranty deal is still on, I'm mailing off the form and my receipt first thing :cool: (just hope it doesn't get lost in the mail).

    Thanks, not sure my bank manager will agree though :rotfl:
    I guess you'll be posting some pics of your wall mounted Panasonic soon? See if you can convince me to wall mount my sharp!

    That sharp looks awesome.. would love it if they made a model with similar specs but around 23" in size for my bedroom, but it seems everything that size loses out badly.

    update further to my above post.

    Sharp just phoned me to say that due to a slight oversight they forgot to pack the media box ( doh!). So my TV is now arriving tomorrow.

    High definition video comes out awesome on this TV, although it's hard to capture with the camera.
