Thread Starter 
I am looking to buy an 46" led tv, and for weeks i have been comparing a lot of tv's, the Sharp Aquas with a few other Samsungs. My question is which of the two brands is better, and which one i should go with? Thank you

You cannot blanket judge brands. Depends on the models you are comparing.

Out of these two which one would you pick, besides the fact that the samsung has a contrast ratio of 5M:1 compared to the Aquas 4M:1
Sharp AQUOS 46" 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV (LC46LE540U) vs Samsung 46" 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV (UN46EH6000FXZC)

I have the Samsung UN46EH6000 wall mounted and it's fantastic. I mostly like it because it's just a great TV without all the stuff I don't like (apps/smart features, etc). I have it plugged into my HTPC and cable box through a receiver and it's been nothing but great, especially for the price.

dynamic contrast ratio means nothing. It's pure marketing at it's best.
Anyway, I'd go for the Samsung.

I will only talk from the reliability standpoint.

I have a Sharp Aquos, 32", 1366x768, from 2006, and it's only had a couple of power board failures. One happened within warranty, it got fixed in three days, and the other one happened the last year, but I replaced a capacitor that popped and it's working flawlessly again. The board was €80 anyway, not much of a deal.

If you don't fancy all this smart TV gimmicks, the new Aquos are amazing IMO.
