Sharp LC-42 AD 5 E

 

1080p images are not accepted., Unconvincing reproduction of full HD material

This Sharp is best equipped for daytime TV viewing, and the picture has convincing contrast. Processing HDTV material is, however, beyond the capabilities of both the screen and the electronics.

Sharp LC-26AD5E review

 

A basic budget LCD that can still offer some impressive pictures

Impressive contrast ; Strong detail ; Vibrant colour

Drab menus ; Limited viewing angle

A good stab at a wellfeatured, affordable set that just falls short on picture quality

Sharp LC32AD5E review

 

We audition Sharp's entry-level LCD

Price ; Good pictures most of the time ; Elegant design

Ugly onscreen menus ; Some colour toning issues

Although it lacks the glitz and glamour of Sharp’s other LCDs, this budget screen still deserves an audition

Sharp LC32AD5E

 

It also joins our other budget contenders in sporting two HDMIs and a PC port among its connections, and scores points for having a decent level of flexibility in its picture settings. Tweaks available include a black level booster, and noise reduction.

Fair price, pictures good at times, nicely designed

Messy onscreen menus, colour tone problems, black levels tricky to get right

Sharp LC32AD5E

 

Solid but uninspiring budget performer from Sharp ..

It is hard to dislike Sharp's LC32AD5E as it puts in a solid performance in all areas, and is one of the best budget LCD TV's on the market. There are no Achilles heals, although the overall performance left us a little flat.
