Sharp 70uh30u review
The LC-37D7U LCD TV is part of the newest Sharp AQUOS D7U series, a feature-packed line that includes attached desktop stands and built-in HD tuners, all matched with stellar picture quality. We've previously reviewed the smaller LC-26D7U model in this series and found it to be an excellent value for its combination of picture quality, sound, and industrial design.
In addition to the standard HDMI, component, and composite inputs on this model, it offers a DVI-D input and two USB ports that can be accessed from either side of the unit. There are also a pair of RF ports on the back that can be used to connect a wired remote control or a Roku TV stick.
This large-screen LCD sports better overall picture quality than last year's LC-LE640U, with dark levels and shadow detail that are both detailed and accurate, while color remains good. There are some slight black uniformity issues, and there's a tendency to desaturate greens and reds, but skin tones are quite good.
The LC-37D7U is also very well designed, with the remote's buttons organized for easy access. Some rarely used controls, like closed-caption and picture freeze, are hidden under a door at the base of the remote, but otherwise this is a very pleasant-to-use television. The menus, which are arranged in the same way as the remote's buttons, are easily navigable.
