Along with a very nice design and good specifications the Sharp LC46D85U also have very good connectivity options, with a massive 5x HDMI 1.3 inputs, along with component, and PC VGA input.  Cnet reviewed the LC-46D85U and said, while it has its good points, the picture quality of the Sharp LC-46D85U was disappointing overall. Its black level performance was mediocre–even a bit worse than what we saw on the less expensive D65U–and color accuracy was OK. Accurate color after calibration; energy efficient; numerous picture controls.
