If you're looking for a full-featured HDTV that can do it all without taking up a lot of space, consider the compact Sharp LC-32DV27UT. It's ideal for anywhere you want big-screen HDTV performance, but don't have room for a larger set. The 32" LCD screen produces a brilliant picture at 720p resolution, and its built-in progressive scan DVD player means you won't have to hook up a lot of extra equipment to enjoy a world of entertainment choices.
The ATSC/QAM/NTSC tuners can receive virtually all available digital, HDTV, and analog signals, and Sharp's high brightness technology renders those signals in clear, vivid colors that can hold their own even in bright light.
Although this set's key characteristic is its picture quality, Sharp also paid a lot of attention to its audio capabilities. The DVD player handles conventional audio CDs, and also plays MP3 and WMA files. In addition, the unit lets you view digital photos in the JPEG format.
Should you desire to connect additional equipment, such as a camcorder, digital camera, or game system, the LC-32DV27UT includes a full range of inputs and outputs. For reception of uncompressed digital data, there is an HDMI input which accepts both video and audio on a single cable. A PC input allows the HDTV to do double duty as a PC monitor.
For performance, versatility, and compactness, the Sharp LC-32DV27UT is a great choice to serve as a standalone entertainment center.
