Sharp LC-32RD2E

 

The TV's glossy black finish with silver trim would set many a contemporary living room aflame

Low power consumption, Good audio

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

Other positive points that we can lay at the LC32RD32's door are in the aesthetic and audio departments. The TV's glossy black finish with silver trim would set many a contemporary living room aflame. Similarly, the hidden speakers are more powerful...

Sharp LC32RD2E 32in LCD TV

 

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

Connectivity is mostly good with one niggly shortcoming. In the good column sits the provision of twin HDMIs, Scarts, a D-Sub PC port and support for a digital tuner, with the niggle being the lack of any dedicated component video input. You can get...

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

Sharp Aquos LC32RD2E review

 

Not many LCDs at this price can boast advanced 100Hz technology -- the affect on image quality, especially with cohesive movement, is impressive. Digital TV broadcasts, including sport, feature an almost surreal sense of movement, while high-definition...

Clean, cohesive movement ; 100Hz technology ; Impressive standard- and high-definition performance for the price

Slightly compromised build quality ; No dedicated component connections ; Disappointing sound

Enhanced realism and movement, especially watching sports programmes or video gaming, are the biggest beneficiaries for a screen that offers exceptional quality for unbeatable value

Sharp LC37RD2E review

 

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

Picture and sound quality

Not 1080p ; Weird connectivity could be annoying

Overall the picture and sound quality make this television a good, sturdy performer and the only real criticism we can level at it is that it has slightly odd video inputs, which might make hooking up your games consoles a little harder than other sets

Expert review by:

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

Recommended!

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

 

In addition to the excellent 4ms response time and 10,000:1 contrast ratio, this panel will feature the mouth watering 100Hz technology dubbed Double Frame Drive. If you think that wasn't enough, Sharp has also thrown in the latest Micronas TRU D...

High contrast images, good blacks with plenty of brightness ; 100hz Double Frame Drive ; Above average shadow detail ; Excellent primary chromaticities ; 4 ms response time ; TruD Picture Processing ; Backlight control ; Faster menu ; Functional EPG...

High end on the price scale ; Mild red push ; Non-D65 greyscale ; No greyscale controls ; No direct component video input ; No Picture-in-picture ; Acceptable viewing angle at about 100 degrees ; Menu not aesthetically pleasing ; Some work needed to...

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.
