The once-mighty rear-projection television RPTV is poised to become a footnote in history, but its demise won't be complete until the hugely popular flat-panel designs can match the value that RPTVs offer for the largest screens. The LCD64U's glossy black bezel measures 1. Like the D62 series, the D64s also feature a stylishly curved lower bezel that partially conceals a narrow 1.
The set's universal remote control is Sharp's premium baton design that features a fully backlit keypad. A USB port on the TV's right-hand side is used for applying firmware updates, and I successfully applied the latest firmware file available on the Sharp Web site prior to testing. Among its available picture mode presets, the LCD64U's movie preset proved to be the most color-accurate when compared with the standard used in HD video production; primary colors were almost perfect, except for a slightly oversaturated green.
This mode's default setup includes an active film-detection feature to improve detail with video sources, such as most movies and prime-time television, that were originally captured at 24 frames per second fps.
Sharp's p televisions including the LCD64U also feature a picture size setting that ensures that every p and i or p video pixel is visible, for better picture detail—something no RPTV can easily match. The LCD64U, with its Hz display technology, isn't as effective as the latest or Hz LCD televisions at maintaining picture detail in video depicting motion motion resolution.
Its effective motion resolution measured somewhere between and 1, lines of detail, whereas the Hz Samsung LN55A , for example, can render 1, lines of motion detail almost perfectly. Considering how long the LCD64U's has been available, I was pleasantly surprised to find it could produce an average contrast ratio of 1,, with an average black level of 0.
This contrast result is about half of what current and smaller-size Samsung LCDs such as the A and Aseries are capable of producing; significantly darker black levels 0.
However, the LCD64U's contrast result surpasses those of more recent Sharp models, including the D65 and SB series , as well as that of any rear-projection television. Switching to the LCD64U's movie preset, in addition to optimizing color response, also enables the set's room light sensor, which automatically adjusts the TV's backlight level based on ambient light conditions.
Sharp has announced a new inch Hz model , which is expected to arrive this summer, and it's looking as if the LCD64U will remain available in decent quantities until that time. Compared with similar-size p rear-projection televisions, the LCD64U is about twice as expensive and consumes about twice as much power. However, it offers a picture with more than three times the real-world contrast, superior brightness uniformity from corner to corner, and better viewing angles—more than enough to earn it our Editors' Choice.
