Quality is in the eye of the beholder. Female have 2 times the color receptors in their eyes so they tend to be more particular about colors. Adults over the age of 19 begin to yellow their eye lens until brightness and contrast become a major issue as young as 40. And critics don't mind offering their opinions especially on TV settings. The easiest way to gain their incite is to google the "manufacturers name" followed by the "model number" and the word "review". Good luck.

Scratched sharp 46 inch lcd screen can it be replaced

The lcd screen is the most expensive component of the lcd screen/tv/monitor.

It makes no sense to try and replace it as first of all you won`t be able to find the part number required to do that job (e.g. the screens are internally made by sharp // special orders are placed to companies that only start the process for orders greater than tens of thousands of items) and secondly after a lcd panel has been replaced / installed you need to configure the colors, luminosity, contrast, balance etc through a data cable.

I am really sorry for your sharp lcd screen.

Here are the settings:

BD 1080p 24hz Output (HDMI): On (this TV can reproduce video at 48hz for accurate 2:2 pulldown)

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.
