Sharp Aquos LC-37B20E


Sharps most recent Aquos LCD TVs have taken a massive leap upwards in terms of sound and picture performance, and nowhere is this more true than in the LC-37B20E.

Great black-levels ; No motion judder ; good connectivity

default picture and sound settings aren't always the best

Not that you should need to; the Aquos LC-37B20Es own built-in speakers do a credible job of relaying the on-screen action to your ears - it certainly does a much better than job that many rival LCD TVs, and also betters the performance of previous...

Sharp LC-37B20E review


A good TV but not one that shouts 'high end' at us. The smooth motion on movies, sharp picture and great sound certainly do suggest that it's a very good mid-range TV

Styling ; Picture ; Sound ; Menu systems

Still got some of Sharp's weirdness, such as crazy channel ordering ; Could be cheaper ; Requires substantial set up

There are plenty of 1080p LCDs around these days and many of them cheaper than the B20. Take a look at Toshiba's Regza 37XV505D or a Samsung LE40A6 for more inspiration

Sharp LC-42B20E


Against its peers, Sharp's LC-42B20E is average despite a complete spec' and reasonable motion handling

Slimline design ; complete spec ; bright colours ; reasonable motion handling

Lacklustre sound ; little to get too excited about in terms of picture performance

Sharp LC-32B20E


One of the best LCD TVs we've seen from Sharp but it still struggles to make an impact

Full HD ; rich colour, decent with movement ; good TV tuner

Struggles to deliver deep blacks ; lacks sharpness ; lightweight sound

Sharp Aquos LC42B20E Full HD LCD TV Review


Sharp's latest 42-inch high definition LCD TV combines slim line and stylish looks and cracking features, so how does is fare in its Best4Reviews test?

Easy to use and set up, Slim line design, Good audio performance, Excellent picture quality, Connectivity

Standard resolution sources (DVDs for example) suffer with shadowing in high-speed motion and on neutral image areas, EPG is slow

Great looking, slim and easy to handle (hmmm, that sounds a bit like my misses, minus the cooking skills of course!) the Sharp AQUOS LC42B20E is a cracking HD set worth every penny and while it might not be class leading, it certainly gets close – but...

Qualified Recommendation

Sharp LC42B20E


It's probably safe to say that Sharp have, for whatever reason, slipped off the LCD radar to some extent - at least here in the UK. However, Sharp are pioneers in the field of LCD technology, and not too long ago, their distinctively designed AQUOS...

Great black level for an LCD TV ; 1080p detail is good, thanks to 1:1 mapping mode ; 24p input correctly handled - no telecine judder ; Primary colours relatively accurate ; Action Mode” gives an interesting look, and lessens motion blur ; Optional...

Calibration is difficult: no user controls and foreboding service menu ; EPG can be quite slow ; Viewing angle can be restrictive ; LCD panel has uneven brightness, or “banding ; Quiet “whining” noise whilst in use ; Digital TV appears to momentarily...

Sharp’s LC42B20E admirably delivers big-screen 1080p high definition for a price that represents excellent value for money. Although it is not a class-leading LCD display in the strictest sense of the word, it comes incredibly close in several areas....
