Cons:None

The Bottom Line: Nice TV at a nice price


When we moved we needed a larger television to fit into the wall of our entertainment area. We shopped around and decided on the Sharp 36R-S50 Stereo Television. We went to our local Best Buy and got it on sale. We bought a 4 year extended warranty and before the second week of ownership was over, we needed to return the first Sharp T.V. we bought because the screen went out.

Now, don't become fixated on the fact that the first Sharp T.V. we bought went out. That was last fall and since then our second Sharp Television has been great!


FEATURES

Our Sharp television came with a remote control. The television itself allows the power, volume, channel up and down feature, and two video-in terminals to be accessed from the very front of the set. We rarely use any of these features because the Sharp Remote does it all.


REMOTE:

Man's best friend....The Sharp Remote has the following features:

Power, Remote Keypad (Channel Changer), Flashback, Volume Control, Mute (Close Captioned also), Input features to switch to the VCR, DVD or a game console, Menu and Display features.


OTHER FEATURES:

DEMO MODE: This allows the new user to go through a pre-programmed tutorial of the new television set.

LANGUAGE MODE: The on screen display can be set in English, Spanish or French.

VIDEO ADJUST FEATURES: Through the remote the entire picture that is displayed can be adjusted a number of ways including: Picture, Tint, Color, Bright, Sharp, Color Tone, and Reset which will put your television back to factory specifications.

AUDIO SELECT MODE: This allows you to set the reception for a stereo or bilingual television sound. (we have never used this feature)

CLOSED CAPTION: The television is equipped with an Internal Closed Caption Decoder. This allows you to watch closed captioned programs if you want. I have noticed that when I mute the television the Closed Caption option is activated.

PARENT CONTROL: This television is equipped with the V-CHIP if you wish to control the television programs viewed by children based on FCC data.

OPERATION MANUAL: The television came with a very well written operations manual that was easy to read and understand.

BEST OF ALL:
PICTURE AND SOUND QUALITY: The main purpose of getting a large television is to be able to see everything and hear everything just like you are in the movies. The Sharp 36R-S50 television does just about that. The picture is clear, crisp, and bright. The colors really shine and the picture detail is excellent. The Sound is very good also. My daughter can drive me nuts with her loud music videos, it sounds as if the band is playing in our front room.

My husband and I now watch movies and enjoy them alot more. We are very pleased with our Sharp Television.


Last but not least, Warranty:

The Sharp Television comes with a One Year parts and labor warranty. They give you a Two Year warranty on the picture tube, but they do not offer free labor when it has to be replaced after the initial year.
