Sharp LC32RD2E review

 

Sharp joins the 100Hz processing brigade

Low power consumption ; Good audio

100Hz processing does more harm than good ; No component video jacks

Sharp's boffins need to tweak the company's 100Hz system before we can recommend it

Sharp LC-37RD2E review

 

100Hz picture processing can't make up for its weaknesses

Neat looks ; Minimal motion blur

Processing issues ; Unnatural picture

We can't recommend a TV with processing that distracts you from what you're watching

Sharp LC32RD2E 32in LCD TV

 

Sharp adds 100Hz processing to its feature list, but John's not so sure that's a good thing.

Sharp's LC37RD2E requires a little more assembly than any other TV here.

Sharp Aquos LC37RD2E review

 

Every year there are improvements to LCD televisions that make them a more attractive proposition.

Picture and sound quality.

Not 1080p; weird connectivity could be annoying.

The Sharp Aquos LC37RD2E is a good, 720p HD Ready TV with some great features, including an effective 100Hz picture mode, which does a good job of removing motion blur and film judder

Sharp LC-37RD2E

 

It's arguably the most attractive, that's for sure, with its curvy gloss-black bezel and stylish 'wave' along the bottom edge. But it's got a slightly annoying connection limitation, as there's no dedicated component video input. Instead the D-Sub PC...

Neat looks, solid features, practically no motion blur

Processing glitches, pictures generally don't look natural, sluggish operating system

Sharp LC32RD2E Review - 32" Aquos 100Hz LCD TV Test

Sharp LC32RD2E

 

Excellent all-round performance with very little to criticise apart from a lackluster acoustic performance ..

Sharp's LC32RD2E is a highly accomplished LCD TV. All round performance is a revelation, and it is competing head on with the best LCD's from Panasonic.
