You could use this TV for PC gaming but as it has a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution instead of the usual 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution it's clear that the LC-32GP3U is mainly aimed at console gamers. The display has a 6ms response time, 10,000:1 "Dynamic Contrast Ratio", 450cd/m brightness and a 4-wavelenght backlight system.
Behind the high-gloss finish is a cutting-edge HDTV packed with special features. The Vyper Drive feature reduces the lag time between the game console input and the TV display to imperceptible levels. A Game Mode button on the remote control provides gamers quick access to the side terminal inputs, which are positioned for easy and convenient connection to a video game console and also activates Vyper Drive. Additionally, the user can change the Vyper Drive and Game Mode to a different input if they choose to connect to a rear terminal. A subwoofer audio output allows an active subwoofer connection for a strong bass sound and a more powerful gaming experience.
The GP3U model is equipped with a full array of connection options, including two sets of component inputs and three HDMI version 1.3 (x.v.Color), inputs, all compatible with 1080p signals from Blu-Ray and advanced gaming devices. The LC-32GP3U also supports 1920 x 1080 24 frames per second high-definition video for displaying cinematic content in its native format when played from a compatible video source. Easy PC connectivity is enabled through the 15-pin D-sub terminal or through the use of a DVI-I to HDMI adapter. The GP3U set touts Full HD 1080p resolution, with Sharps proprietary Advanced Super View Panel and a 4-wavelength backlight system, for deeper, more vivid reds. With an impressive 10,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, even in the darkest scenes, gamers will never miss a detail. A pixel response time of 6ms delivers smooth video playback in fast-moving action sequences.As with all HD AQUOS models, the 32-inch set comes with built-in ATSC, clear QAM and NTSC tuners, offering compatibility with all available analog and digital over-the-air and cable TV programming. It also features a wide viewing angle of 176 degrees and a high brightness rating of 450 cd/m2. The long-life backlight system provides 60,000 viewing hours under normal viewing conditions.
