Sharp LC-52 XD 1 E


The LC-52 XD 1 E incorporates a receiver for DVB-T via a set-top antenna; This set makes a good impression with style and substance. Sharp uses the huge screen to perfection; The Sharp is indeed sharp - movement is especially crisp, unusually for LCD...

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 has produced a tempting piece of kit, both in terms of technology and sheer size. The picture quality cannot be criticized. Negative points are scored only when considering other features, particularly the remote control.

Sharp LC-37 XD 1 E


Unusually for an LCD, this Sharp offers deep black; Full picture with no cropping - the LC-37 XD 1 E displays full HD pictures without overscan

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 LC-46XD1E review


Sharp re-enters the LCD Big Time with another leap ahead for the manufacturer

Decent audio quality ; Full HD capability ; Bright and vibrant pictures

Some colours can look over-dominant

Sharp Aquos LC-52XD1E review


Another big hitter in the LCD corner

p>Plenty of HD bells and whistles Superbly clean and detailed picture</p

p>Black levels still not on plasma levels Some resolution loss on moving images</p

Expert review by:

Sharp Aquos LC52XD1E review


Big, bold and its pictures are often really quite beautiful

p>Lack of noise Black levels are good</p

p>Picture loses contrast if watched from angles High price</p

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

Sound quality ; Annoying video inputs

The LC46 is due to be replaced soon with a new generation of screens. This means this TVs might be discounted to clear stock, which will make it a very good buy indeed

Sharp LC42XD1E 42in LCD TV


Sharp joins the 1080p party.

The main thing about the 42XD1E, though, is that its imperfections aren’t really that serious overall – and for the most part they’re also very common across the LCD world as a whole. The 42XD1E’s many strengths, however, are certainly not common. So...

Sharp Aquos LC37XD1E review


The Sharp Aquos LC37XD1E is a solid performer -- Freeview and standard-definition aren't perfect but its high-definition performance is excellent

Styling ; High-definition picture quality

Freeview picture quality ; Non-standard component video connection

So if you aren't too bothered about 1080p and are likely to end up watching a lot of Freeview, you'll be better off saving a bit of cash and going for something like the Toshiba 32WLT68
