Sharp LC-32 X 20 E


Excellent feature set; Natural picture; Almost perfect PC image

Slight weaknesses in contrast and motion clarity; Cluttered on-screen menu

The LC-32 X 20 E stacks up to be a real bargain, with a great picture for standard TV viewing and DVD or Blu-ray playback. It also boasts a healthy feature set and modern design. The LC-32 X 20 E is a full HD, LCD flat-panel TV with an integrated DVB-T...

Sharp LC-42 X 20 E


HDTV playback is displayed in brilliant color without resolution compromise; Ideal for Blu-ray indulgence: 24Hz cinematic frame-rate material is rendered effortlessly by the Sharp and completely free of judder; Sport fans will love this one: Racy...

Fine details are absent when viewing analog stations that tarnishes the overall impression

When required, the display's backlight can be controlled automatically through a light sensor to suit the ambient illumination. Unfortunately, this produces a picture that is a touch on the dark side when using the standard "Film" preset (which...

Sharp LC-32X20E


As a pure 32in gaming machine this Sharp LCD is heaven sent

1080p resolution ; Smooth motion ; Clean picture ; Onscreen menus

Black levels ; Lack of depth

Going back to colours, they're superbly saturated - ideal for gaming - yet decently natural when winding down from some hard racing with a little TV viewing

Sharp LC-46X20E


The X20's gloss black coat is at least thrown into striking relief by a silver wave along the bottom edge

Decent black levels ; Smooth pictures ; HDMI side input for gaming

Ripe reds and blues ; Flicker on 24fps material ; Usability issues

However, after following the simple instructions, the stubborn TV insisted on choosing for itself which input I had the Blu-ray player plugged into

Sharp Aquos LC-32X20E 32in LCD TV


Sharp's LC-32X20E LCD TV crams a full HD resolution across 32 inches. Impressive or just a numbers game?

The set's connections are good too, leading off as they do with three HDMI inputs and a component video input for HD duties. But also of note are a D-Sub PC port, a couple of SCARTs, a digital audio output for when Freeview gets round to delivering...

Sharp Aquos LC46X20E 46in LCD TV


Sharp impresses us with 46 inches of LCD goodness for a great price.

There’s no hiding the fact that the 46X20E’s performance is something of a mixed bag, especially with standard definition. But it’s also impossible to ignore the set’s new, remarkably low price. In fact, in the end the price wins the day with us, as we...

Sharp LC-52X20E


This set is average, given the price tag

Slimline, smart design ; full HD spec ; natural colours

Soft images ; struggles with blacks ; blocky TV tuner

Expert review by:

Sharp LC-46X20E


It's not actually a bad TV, but the Sharp falls short of the standards set by the best in its class

Slim design; bright scenes are fairly detailed; vibrant colours; good sound for a flatscreen

Poor usability; little black insight; lack of solidity to motion; Freeview suffers from instability

Expert review by:

Sharp LC-52X20E


Its connections impress too by including three v1.3 HDMI inputs - though it's not quite as eye-catching in feature terms as its rivals today. The only things of real note are Sharp's tru-D processing for reducing judder, and an 'Action' picture mode...

Good pictures once you've got them calibrated, space-saving design, good connectivity

The picture needs to be VERY carefully calibrated to look its best, the viewing angle is too limited, and motion resolution could be improved

Sharp LC-42X20E


Good all round performer let down by a few minor glitches ..

The LC-42X20E is a good all round performer, but the lack of 100Hz processing and the 8-bit panel are detrimental to its performance. For very little extra outlay, these features can be found on the LC-42XL2E ....
