I was just wondering if anyone has this screen at all? I am considering this as a replacement for my LG dim-yellowish SXGA IPS screen. I read RBS's comment in one of the forums that this is an ASV (Advanced Super View, comparable technology to IPS) screen. However, I see very few references this being anything more than a simple TN panel. How good are its viewing angles? How does this screen performs over time? I have another frankie with a CCFL Boehydis UXGA, how does this Sharp screen compare to the Boe UXGA in your opinion? What about brightness, color reproduction?
If you have used the Sharp screen before I would appreciate if you could share your thoughts on this screen.

If you expect the viewing angles of Hydis, or the warm clarity of LG IPS, you're likely to be disappointed. Sharp is not quite in that ballpark.
Having said that, outside of the IPS/AFFS realm, these are likely the best 4:3 panels ever made.

Here's how sharp looks; there is only BIOS shot, but I can't find anything more for now - and simply does not have time for now to put it into a working unit

SHARP screens are colorful, very bright and have reasonable viewing angles for TN screens. Still, if you are used to IPS you will be unable to eat Sharp screen. These are details that matter much.
To compare, Sharp is brighter than both LG, ID-Tech and Boehydis screens mounted in T60. However, it has worse viewing angles (I was expecting a bit more from ASV really) and color reproduction falls behind all and any 4:3 IPS panel I've ever used, and trying to calibrate does not produce good effects. It also is very aggressive to my eyes for some reason; IPS and AFFS screens that became a possibility thanks to RBS are paper-like.
All in all this is a good panel. Will I use it? No, unless I have no access to any compatible IPS panel, so most probably it will be placed in A30 lid (this is a 1:1 replacement). If this one is smaller I'd happily install it in any system that does not have an IPS option otherwise, like X300 or G41.

TN isn't something to be afraid of. The specs of the display, well that can tell an entirely different story.
The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
