42″ Sharp LC-42SV49U LCD 1080p HDTV: Full specs a mystery

If you are thinking of picking up the Sharp 42-inch LC-42SV49U LCD 1080p HDTV during the upcoming holiday sales, you may be surprised to hear see that detailed information on this particular model is no where to be found.

It looks like retailers such as Best Buy may have this model as an exclusive, as we couldn’t find any official information on Sharp’s website about this TV. What we do know about it though, is that it will have a 60Hz refresh rate, 176/176 viewing angles and 3 HDMI inputs to suit your media needs.

Considering the secrecy regarding this Sharp model, you can bet that quantity is going to be extremely limited, so if you intend to pick one up during the holiday sales, then prepare yourselves accordingly by getting down to retailer queues early.

As a point of reference, Best Buy will be opening their doors for the start of their Black Friday sales on November 24 at 12am. We’ve heard however though that those planning to buy doorbuster items will be able to pick up tickets starting at 10pm, so make a note of that if this TV interests you.

Once we gather more intel on this elusive Sharp HDTV, we’ll update this info, but in the meantime feel free to post any information that you have found as well. Does the 42″ Sharp LC-42SV49U interest you this year or have you found a better TV to aim for this year?

OK, it has been a few weeks and the price is now $379. I am just looking for a solid TV for my kids to game on so I can free up the 58″plasma for important things like football games. Is this a good deal at $379. If not, any suggestions for an alternative?

anybody find any websites with detailed reviews? such as response time? or the real contrast ratio, and not the fake dynamic?    I got one. im using it as my computer monitor, went from a 21″ to this.. its awesome for my games and movies and desktop backgrounds in 1920×1080 are pretty awsome.   it just doesent look as vibrant and colorful as i remember the 46″ sony bravia i repaired for a friend looking. however it might just be me. its been awhile sence i had that television. im useing the hdmi connector, computer rez set to 1920×1080 like it should be, i have a… Read more »

I waited 30 hours…that’s right 30!!!! for my TV and I was number 12 in line, the store only had 12 TVs. I was pretty lucky. I didn’t plan on waiting in line that long but when I drove by my local best buy there were people already there so I parked my car to wait with them. The TV works fine so far…for $200 for a Sharp brand HDTV 42″ there should be no complaining.

So, I’m one of those “idiots” that stood in line. The tv works like a charm and the picture is awesome. 200$ was way worth it. It has the same quality as my samsung and my Sony. I don’t see why so many are negative about the tv. If you’re not interested then let it be. As far as I can tell, the people that got the tv, love it. So maybe next year you fools talking smack with be in line for the tv sale for 2012 black Friday. Plus I bought a 4-yr warranty for 30$. So beat… Read more »

I stood in line 12 hours to get this tv(actually bought 2) and for 200 bucks u cant beat that. i recently bought a 32 inch tv that was 500 bucks after tax and everything and to be able to get 2 LARGER tvs for LESS $$$ is a steal. point me to a better deal when u find one!!! plus i even added a 2 year warranty to both tvs so if anything happens to them best buy will come to MY HOUSE and repair em…im pretty sure in 2 years i would have gotten my money worth out of… Read more »

So I was first in line at BestBuy 3rd year in a row…. Bought the 42″ SHARP and it works great!!! Its way better than my 50″ SAMSUNG 720p (and I love my Samsung)….

I didnt really care if it was crapy since I bought it for my bedroom…

Being out there for a whole day was soooo worth it…. plus I made $80 bucks selling my leftover tickets.

HATERS ARE ALWAYS GONNA HATE!!!

I don’t understand what the big deal is. If you are not buying this tv then you shouldn’t care (RIGHT) Whats with all the negativity? If you watch that much tv that you are so concerned about 60 this, and not enough ports, and its gonna blur. WOW! When do you find time to play with the kids, Talk to the wife, and oh yeah go to church. That’s right you can do all that right in front of the screen. Well enough said, actually I don’t even what this thing anymore. God bless, remember what the season is really… Read more »

Honestly, I think everyone who is talkin trash about this tv is just tryin to discourage everyone else from buying them, because they want one themselves. Who really bothers to bad mouth a product on black Friday? Are you people actually dumb enough to think I’m gonna change my mind? Worst case senario, I just get my money back if it sucks. See you chumps in line! I’ll be the guy at the front with 42″ for $200! Peace!

Right now I have no TV at all, and watch everything on my computer.  I was hoping to somehow find a 32″ for $200, and planned to hook up my computer to it to watch regular tv shows with my daughter and/or my boyfriend, who has big flat screens and is kind of tired of watching on my 15″ laptop screen.  I had a Westinhouse a friend let me borrow for a few months, and it was not a great tv, but it was good enough for me.  I think this one will probably be no worse.  For $200, I’d… Read more »

Sounds fine for our bedroom tv – basically for news, music & some early morning kid shows.  Would never work for our main set though.

Specs are at the website below.  For $199 it will probably be okay, but don’t expect 3d or anything.  It’s just a good tv for watching regular shows and dvds. Televisions from 3 years ago were pretty good, I don’t need the latest and greatest (which is over-priced anyway) just to watch satellite programs.  If you’re looking for the best possible tv, please look elsewhere.  Bargain basement tv for a bargain basement price.  
  If it lasts a year, and I get a voucher for another one, that’s fine by me.  Maybe it’ll last until black Friday 2012!  lolhttp://bestbuy.shoplocal.com/bestbuy/default.aspx?action=entryflash&promotioncode=112411MWSNKPK&sneakpeek=y

Greed, Greed, Greed!! Doesn’t surprise me at all that during the season of exercising “giving”  to honor our Lord and God the white or whater creed pencil pushers from any and all companies come up with another scheme with glitz and glamour to fool you into buying a system that has less bells and whistles. 60hz refresh rate!?..spare me. I can only imagine what refurbished junk is on the inside; as a former tech.

STRAIGHT FROM BEST BUY WEBSITE

ZAP

Years ago I bought a GE TV at Walmart and thought I had scored a super bargain.  Then when I brought it home I found out it had no RCA jacks.  I had to go out and buy a specialty box and ran wires everywhere to get the VCR and the DVD and converter box to work. It wasn’t a bargain, but a cheaply made custom product to sucker bargain hunters into thing they had scored.  Now I read reviews and stay informed.  The way it should be.  Have fun thinking you saved $100’s while you watch the action blur.

When this TV breaks, which it will, and if you purchase the bogus best buy warranty – good luck. They will make you wait 2 weeks for a part that won’t be available. After 2 weeks, corporate will issue a voucher (another week) then you will have $199 in a store voucher to buy another set. That will leave you enough to buy a 19″ westinghouse. You tell me if that’s worth waiting 3-4 hours in line?

Well I run a TV repair shop & looked it up ….. it’s a Sharp, has all the main boards that die available, and remember for $200.00 bucks in a year it’s only costing you .55 cents a day.  It’s worth buying – if it croaks your not out much at all.

I’m so buying this … I have a 51″ HDTV but it’s an old school CRT Rear Projector at 1080i and in a way these have some advantages over LCD but it’s 6 years old and needs a professional tune up and I’m flat broke. The tune up alone would be more than $200 and who knows how much longer it will last as it is already 6 years old. For those that say 60Mhz is crap … well … you don’t know what you are talking about. The whole 120/240Mhz stuff is utter BS. The whole motion smooth thing… Read more »

Why bother, its obviously a sub standard item.
I would rather put the $200 toward a better featured 120HZ TV, that way I wont regret it as prices
keep coming down on these tvs anyway.
And all you have to go through to even have a chance without them selling out ?
Not worth it.

the model Sharp 42-inch LC-42SV49U is quite old 2006, even doesn’t exist on manufacturer website. Most likely Best Buy going to sell refurbished one.
