The Aquos is capable of 1080p which is the best current HDTV resolution - awesome!  The exact resolution is 1920x1080 with a 60Hz refresh rate.
Its also very capable at upscaling 720p inputs.  I've done various tests and visually there is practically no difference when watching a regular DVD and having the DVD player do the upscale, or letting the television do the upscale.
If you are connecting a computer then its a little more complicated...
If you are attaching a computer to the television then if the video card in your computer is capable of 1920x1080 at 60Hz then this would be perfect.  Personally I would rather use 720p rather than drop to 1080i as the drop in resolution isn't noticeable from 4 feet whereas interlacing causes me to get a headache after a while.  (LCD / Plasma interlacing isn't as bad as old CRT monitors that used to use interlacing - so not everyone will get eye strain / headaches from it)
The television is also good at showing other computer resolutions too although you'll need to make sure "overscan" is turned on which can cause some bits of the computer desktop to disappear off the edge of the screen...
I spent quite a while getting the DVI->HDMI working - to be honest I'm not entirely sure it was worth it and the results from a regular older style monitor connector is pretty similar...  If your graphics card can't handle the required resolutions - then it may well be worth a new card as HDTV output cards are available pretty cheap...

How to adjust for best picture a Sharp Aquos Quattron 3D LED LCD 52 inch tv. I'm having problem maintaining perferred brightness. Also when initial turn on the screen goes to channel then shuts down and...

This sounds like a setting that can be adjusted. What I like about some of the Sharp televisions is the av mode setting (preset brightness/contrast adjustments). I am not looking at the manual for this model so I'm not sure if this is an option on this television. However with this being a high end aquos model there is free assistance available to you. You can register your television at aquos advantage and chat live with an aquos advisor at Sharp's Midwest Corporate Headquarters. The agent may advise you to call in if your television need and Industry Initialization because you have to be talked through it. I advise the chat reps initially because when you call you aren't able to speak with the Midwest Corporate Sharp reps unless your call is being escalated.

Sharp Aquos Resolution

According to the manual for the TV, you need to change the resolution on the computer itself first.
The computer resolution should be 1024 X 768 at 60Hz or 1360 X 768 at 60Hz.

After the adjustment made on the laptop, then try the resolution change option.

The best setting is in the eye of the one watching the TV the most. Otherwise the default settings aren't too bad.
