Sharp AQUOS 46" vs Sony Bravia 46"

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well i just got a 46" Sharp AQUOS and i didnt do much research on it i just saw it at best buy on sale for 999.99 and ive always heard good things about them. But i have always wanted a sony bravia but then i saw this on sale and then i went to the sony section and the brovia's did not look as well as the aquos did so i picked up the aquos.

Well now i read that Sharp aquos have banding issues on screens above 40", i have had it for 3 days now and all is well but can this "banding" happen later on?

Also which has better quality the brovia or the aquos? when i saw the awesome contrast difference with the yellow in the RBG spectrum i was sold, but games on the xbox look bad in 1080p (the distant objects are very blurry and this does not happen on my 27 inch monitor, and all the games look better in 1340x768 then 1080p) then again i no that the best buy demos that are on the dispaly models dont always do the tv justice.

Should i return the aquos and get a brovia or was a $1000 dollars a good deal for a 46" Aquos and i should stay with this?

EDIT: this is the newer slimmer model

The Sony highly depends on what model it is.

If you are using the sharp tv for gaming then I would stick with it because sony hdtv tend to have higher input lag. I have heard alot of great things on the avsforums with people recommending mainly panasonic, lg, and sharp tv for gaming.

Bravia and Aquos are brand names with varying model numbers. To determine whether or not your TV is a top performer depends entirely on the model. I personally have a Sony Bravia XBR6 and it is an excellent panel. It is important to note that the best panels Sony was making under the Bravia name were the XBR models.

I think Sony has since changed their model naming scheme since my time of purchase in early 2010.

I recommend this forum if you really want to get some excellent discussion on your current panel.

http://www.avsforum.com/

They are the end-all-be-all of audio video discussion on the internet. A lot of industry insiders also contribute on the AVS boards so there is a great wealth of accurate knowledge there.

avsforum.com is to televisions as overclock.net is to computer hardware cool.gif
