With speakers located beneath the screen, the LC-20S2U AQUOS TV is much narrower than Sharp's alternate 20" model with speakers on the sides. So if you're interested in LCD for its space efficiency, this is the most compact high-quality 20" screen we've seen. It also delivers one of the best-looking pictures. Its Enhanced Definition TV (EDTV) capability means it can display a 480p signal from a progressive-scan DVD player with crystal clarity.
Sharp's Advanced Super View (ASV) LCD combines a patent-pending panel design with a special anti-glare coating to deliver greater brightness and extremely wide viewing angles. AQUOS TVs are among the brightest LCD TVs available, so you can place them anywhere - even near windows, doors, or other light sources - and still enjoy dynamic colors and ultra-crisp contrast!
With its slim 3" depth, the LC-20S2U delivers a lot of crystal-clear picture in a little space! A handle is built in for easy carrying - when was the last time you picked up a 20" TV with one hand and carried it to another room? And the built-in stand is perfect for your desktop, or detaches if you'd prefer wall-mounting (hardware not included). "Mirror" and "upside-down" image options are provided for under-cabinet mounting and other custom installations.
This sleek model can be the focal point of a space-efficient home theater in a bedroom or den. Unlike a standard tube-type TV, an LCD TV doesn't use an electron gun, so the display isn't susceptible to distortion from a nearby magnet (like a speaker). And with LCD panels you never have to worry about an image "burning in" permanently - great news for video game fans!
The LC-20S2U's long-life lamp is rated for 60,000 hours of use - that's the equivalent of viewing 8 hours per day, every day, for over 20 years! And energy-efficient AQUOS TVs consume 60% less power than comparably-sized tube-type direct-view TVs.
