Sharp LC-52 XL 2 E


The television picture lacks clarity when playing back high-speed motion content., Channel changing is somewhat slow and the controller is sluggish

This television impresses with its huge screen and broad contrast range. However, for the ultimate home-cinema experience, the set lacks motion clarity and viewing angle independence. Gargantuan 52" screens are simply impressive. The lack of screen...

Sharp LC42XL2E review


An expensive option that doesn't quite perform to the level of its price tag

Very good HD pictures ; Well designed

Too expensive ; Feeble audio ; Not the best SD

Sharp LC46XL2E


The LC46LX2E might not be quite perfect, but it certainly is a mighty fine HD monitor

Well-connnected ; Bright pictures ; Great HD performance ; Strong black levels

Poor SD performance ; Some motion smearing

Finally in the plus column, colours are vibrant and bright. But, it also has to be said that occasionally colours aren't completely natural in tone: some skin tones end up looking a bit over-ripe

Sharp Aquos LC-42XL2E 42in LCD TV


If you're in the market for a pretty-looking HD television, the 42XL2E is worth checking out.

Sharp Aquos LC46XL2E review


The Sharp Aquos LC46XL2E is an attractive TV with good range of features. Unfortunately, HD picture quality isn't perfect and we think it's a little too expensive compared to other screens in its category

Design ; Remote ; Menus ; Sound quality ; Ease of use ; Freeview quality

HD picture is a little soft ; Colour is hard to set up properly ; Some motion judder ; Expensive

Still, the Sharp doesn't perform as well as we would have liked on HD material, although it is curiously competent with Freeview material. Its slick design and ease of use might well make it a good choice for someone who doesn't have any real interest...

Sharp LC52XL2E


It's going to take more than this for Sharp to win back ground from the new LCD kings

Full HD specs ; 24fps, 100Hz ; lightweight and slimline

Fails to overcome typical LCD flaws

Sharp Aquos LC-52XL2E HD LCD TV Review


Our latest Sharp LCD HD TV review features the company's 52-inch, high-end XL2E 1080p model and now means Best4Reviews has completed testing the current range of Sharp's LCD TVs. The question is of course, is it any good?

Easy to use and set up, Excellent picture quality, Great connectivity, Good Remote Control, and volume without distortion

Built-in speakers quite tinny, Picture flicker in isolated high contrast areas during fast action displaying upscaled/standard definition sources

The LC-52XL2E is a cracker, the sheer quality of the picture and the slim-line design and good build are readily apparent.Even though the built-in speakers may leave something to be desired, you’ll probably plug in a separate surround system for full...

Sharp LC-42XL2E


Unfortunately it doesn't match up to the Philips model in overall performance terms either.

HD images save the day, decent black levels, neat design, 100Hz works pretty well

Standard def performance only average, sound rather weak, a touch expensive all things considered

Sharp LC-46XL2E


It gets off on the right foot, at least, by looking rather lovely thanks to the way a smoked glass cover has been placed over the normal black bezel. It's well connected too, with three HDMIs, a PC port and a digital audio output among the highlights.

Impressive HD performer, much improved 100Hz, great looker, good connectivity

Numerous standard def problems
