Sharp LC-60LE831U 60-inch Class LED LCD HDTV Reviewed

 

Sharp keeps releasing bigger and bigger televisions, including the 60-inch Sharp LC-60LE831U LED LCD HDTV. Big performance should accompany a big screen, right? Well, not exactly....

The LC-60 is one of the more affordable 60-inch LED HDTVs you can currently buy ; The LC-60 performance is surprisingly good, possessing rich, naturalcolors with solid black levels coupled with near uniform backlighting-something few edge lit LED...

The LC-60's build quality isn't exactly class leading and no doubt areason for its roughly $2,000 asking price. Thankfully, the LC-60'sbuild quality isn't reflected in its performance, which is otherwisevery good ; The LC-60 is not 3D compatible, which...

For a little over $2,000 retail, Sharp's 60-inch LED HDTV, the LC-60,is worthy of your consideration. While it doesn't necessarily "win" anyparticular category in terms of its performance, it's far from theworst. While it's clear to see where Sharp may...

Sharp LC-40LE831E review

 

Spotless 3D and stunning HD but Quattron tech isn't quite the finished article

Intense, but controlled brightness ; Clean 3D images ; Full HD detail ; Colour ; Wi-Fi dongle included

Spreadsheet-like EPG ; Busy remote ; Rudimentary user interface

An extraordinary 3D performance makes this Edge LED TV seriously good value, although it lacks 3D glasses in the box.

Sharp Aquos LC-46LE831E review

 

After virtually creating the big screen LCD TV, Sharp's latest Aquos is a huge step in the direction of picture perfection, but is it at the cost of usability?

Brightness, contrast, 3D, 2D, detail, colour accuracy

Freeview EPG, GUI design, remote control

About as serious as LED backlighting gets, there’s a lot to like about this 3D Quattron TV. Proficient with colour, contrast and clean 3D, it's not quite as enjoyable as a Panasonic plasma, but not to far behind. A good size for both 3D and 2D, the...

Sharp LC-46LE831E review

 

Second generation Quattron TV sticks to the high-end with excellent 3D and 2D

Unbeatable contrast ; Peak whites ; Crosstalk-free 3D ; Incredible detail ; Bright colour

Freview EPG ; Lacklustre user interface ; Cluttered remote

Sharp has championed LCD and the technology's evolution continues with this precise and rather special home cinema screen that's surely the finest edge LED-lit screen around, but it won't appeal to those after a user-friendly living room TV.

Sharp LC-46LE831E review

 

Despite the best efforts of a lab-coated George Takei in Sharp's ‘Quattron' TV ad campaign, the brand's unique four-colour technology hasn't fired the imagination of Joe Public as much as was hoped.

Excellent 2D and 3D picture quality; luxurious design

Some marginal colour balance issues and slight backlight clouding; fiddly operating system ; Performance: 5/5 ; Design: 5/5 ; Features: 4/5 ; Overall: 5/5

Sharp Aquos LE831 (LC-40LE831E) review

 

The Sharp Aquos LC-40LE831E LED TV has its plus points, such as its impressive 3D performance. But its 2D picture quality could be better and its Internet features lag behind the competition.

Deep black levels ; 3D pictures are refreshingly free of ghosting ; Slick design

Colours can look inaccurate ; Not great with standard-definition sources ; Contrast levels could be better

The Sharp Aquos LC-40LE831E is a hit and miss affair. It offers a slick design and its 3D pictures are impressively free of crosstalk, but its 2D picture quality is average and its line-up of Internet features is poor. You can get better overall...

Sharp LC-46LE831E

 

After mostly impressing us with its 3D debut a few months back, the 60in 60LE925E, Sharp has finally followed it up with the more manageable - and vastly more affordable - 46in 46LE831E.

Startlingly good 3D pictures ; Very good 2D pictures too ; Good value

Slightly clumsy OS ; Online features off the pace ; Yellows occasionally look slightly over-aggressive

Sharp has struggled recently to make a big impact on the UK TV scene, but the 46LE831E really deserves to change this. It’s a bit clumsy in places, and its online features need expanding. But when push comes to shove it delivers some of the best 2D and...

The Sharp LC-40LE831E is a 40-inch LCD 3D television that displays full HD (1080p) images and has Freeview HD built-in. The Sharp LC-40LE831E also comes with Wi-Fi capability via a USB dongle included in the box. It comes with four HDMI ports, one...

Viewing pictures on the Sharp LC-40LE831E you can immediately see that the vibrancy of colours really stands out. Bright colours such as blues really come alive, even in 3D. The 3D effect is very good indeed. Pictures pop out convincingly as they...

One of the major drawbacks is having to purchase the glasses separately. At £59.99 they don’t exactly come cheap. And you’ll want at least two if you want others to share the 3D experience with you. Wi-Fi built in, instead of having to use a dongle...

Outstanding picture quality and all-round performance, and value for money make the Sharp LC-40LE831E one of the best bargains around.

Sharp Aquos Quattron LC-40LE831E 40in LED 3D TV

 

Review I reviewed Sharp's first Quattron TV [1] last year, and although it was rather pricey I was impressed by the image quality that it provided thanks to its innovative addition of a fourth yellow pixel to the standard mix of red, green and blue.

If you’re concerned about Internet connectivity, then rivals such as Samsung offer a more comprehensive range of on-line services. However, I remain a fan of the rich, vivid images produced by Sharp’s four-colour Quattron technology and reckon that...
