Sharp Aquos Quattron LC-46LE821E television - Pocket-lint


The Sharp Aquos Quattron LC-46LE821E comes stuffed full of technology. It is highlighted for that extra sub-pixel, which adds yellow to the normal red,

Great picture, once you get it under control, slim profile, good menus, USB media playback, Freeview HD tuner

No IPTV services, reds look a little suspect, home networking doesn't offer video playback, price

The Sharp Quattron will give you a stunning picture, but is it a picture that justifies the £400 to £500 bump over rival Sony or Samsung models of similar specs? We can't confidently say yes.

Sharp Quattron LC46LE821E review


Forget 3D, Quattron technology is here to blow you away

Ground-breaking colours ; Often excellent picture generally ; Good design ; Freeview HD built in ; Decent connectivity

No online features ; Black levels could be better

The whole world and its mother seems to be talking about 3D right now. That's where the hype machine is headed, to an extent unprecedented since the first arrival of HD.

Sharp Aquos LC-46LE821E review


While most TV manufacturers have focused on adding a third dimension to their 2010 TV ranges, Sharp chose to buck the trend and go in a different direction by introducing its Quad Pixel technology. This adds a fourth, yellow, sub-pixel to the...

Sharp Aquos LC-46LE821E 46in LED-Lit LCD TV


Sharp mixes in a yellow sub-pixel to the usual red, green and blue ones with great effect.

If Quad Pixel technology had been developed by the likes of Sony, Samsung or Panasonic, you can bet your bottom dollar they’d be screaming about it at the top of their marketing lungs from the top of the nearest mountain. Sadly, Sharp doesn't seem to...

Sharp LC46LE821E


Class leading colour response, appealingly slender chassis, solid connectivity

Black colours look a bit grey, the set is expensive, and there are no online features

Sharp LC40LE821E


Sharp's LC40LE821E demonstrates an exceptional colour performance compromised by a few minor niggles ..

Unparalleled colour performance, menu system

Some minor backlight inconsistencies

The Sharp LC40LE821 comes very close to being the best LCD TV we have come across for some time. Ultimately, black level ability and a touch of backlight inconsistency let it down; but the colour performance alone still makes this TV worthy of serious...

Sharp Aquos LC-46LE821E 46in quad-pixel TV


An innovative four-pixel display design that produces rich colour quality – albeit at a price.

Sharp’s Quattron technology really does produce excellent colour reproduction, and it's good to see Sharp doing something genuinely innovative at a time when all its rivals are following the 3D bandwagon like a herd of sheep.

Sharp Quattron LC-40LE821E


Looks really stylish ; Love the time shift facility ; Can view HD channels

EPG menu could be easier to read and more attractive ; Disappointed that the screws for the stand were missing out of the box
