Sharp LC-52 XD 1 E


The remote control is a bit awkward, and the menu confuses even technophiles., Too cozy - VGA and YUV share the same input., Unnatural judder on Blu-ray films - 24p format is not accepted

Sharp LC-37 XD 1 E


The menu is confusing, with too many options and small writing., VGA and YUV have to share the same input., The video signal processing produces some distinct picture noise

Sharp Aquos LC46XD1E review


A great TV that offers pretty good value for money -- its standard-definition performance makes watching Freeview much more pleasurable than on its big-screen rivals

Picture quality on standard- and high-definition material ; Styling
