A best seller: The Sharp LC22DV27UT 22 inch LCD HDTV with on board DVD player is a great choice for consumers looking for value from a trusted brand. For consumer familiar with smaller televisions that offer built-in DVD players there are a limited number of choices. Sharp’s competition tends to be either Toshiba, “store brands” or no-name brands, and our reviewers agree that the best choice in this class of televisions is this Sharp. This set’s native resolution is 720p and does a decent job handling 1080i and 480p resolutions. Our reviewers were impressed with the set’s ability to produce rich blacks and bright white colors in HD programming. Regardless of varying light sources (shadows, direct light, etc.) this television produced a clear and bright images. Overall, a great HD and standard definition picture for a 22 inch television.
This 22-inch LCD is equipped with a built-in ATSC / QAM / NTSC Tuners for DTV and analog TV viewing. The Sharp LC22DV27UT provides users with the standard connection components, with the exception of an single HDMI port. It is also equipped with a PC slot for those looking to use the screen as a computer monitor. Our reviewers were very impressed with the television’s display qualities whether watching programming or a DVD via its side load progressive scan player. We tested the following DVD formats without any issues: DVD/DVD-R/DVD-RW/CD/CD-R/CD-RW/VCD.
The Sharp LC22DV27UT utilizes a little more power than other televisions in its class (about 51W) thanks to its on board DVD player. Sound quality on this smaller television is surprisingly clear and solid, it is more than adequate for our test. Initial set up is simple and easy, although a couple of our reviewers found the layout of the remote control a little “counter-intuitive.” Our reviewer’s only common gripe about this set is that its stand is not adjustable, but at this size that should not matter much to most viewers (and if it does a decent adjustable stand can be purchased for about $30.00). If you are looking for a well built, top of the line 22 inch LCD with a built-in DVD, this Sharp is a second to none! It normally retails for about $350, but we have seen it at a few online retailers for about $290. Our reviewers agree this is a great LCD!
