Sharp LC-80LE632U review: Sharp LC-80LE632U

 

Sharp LC-80LE632U

The gigantic, 80-inch ; is a mightily impressive television in the flesh, and it will instantly inspire envy in all who view it. The TV comes with a decent mix of features and handsome styling, and its matte screen improves the picture in bright rooms.

The picture quality is underwhelming for the price you pay: lighter black levels and rosy reds mean it can't even keep up with cheaper (and inevitably smaller) LCD and plasma TVs. You'll need a really big room to put this in, with at least 10 feet of...

If you're just looking to wow your friends or fill a wall, then the 80-inch Sharp LC-80LE632U is one of the best TVs you can buy, but ho-hum picture quality makes it a questionable value.

Sharp LC-80LE632U review

 

It's no secret why you're here; the lure of an 80-inch flat-panel television is too great for anyone to resist. Being the first one on the market, the Sharp LC-80LE632U is bound to attract a lot of attention, and despite some of its more obvious flaws,...

Sharp Aquos Quattron LC-LE73U review: Sharp Aquos Quattron LC-LE73U

 

Sharp Aquos Quattron LC-LE73U

The ; is bigger than just about any other mainstream flat-panel TV, and a strong overall value. It delivers solid picture quality, with better screen uniformity than an edge-lit LED-based LCD, while its matte screen and high potential light output make...

This 70-inch LED-based LCD is too large to fit in many living rooms and too expensive for most buyers' TV budgets. Its black levels, uniformity, and off-angle picture quality aren't as good as those of many large-screen plasmas. Its separate interfaces...

For people craving a colossal flat-screen TV who don't want a plasma or a projector, the 70-inch Sharp LC-70LE73U series LED-based LCD offers very good picture quality, especially in bright rooms.

Sharp Aquos Quattron 830 review: Sharp Aquos Quattron 830

 

Sharp Aquos Quattron 830

The ; has a picture with relatively accurate color in bright areas, good video processing, and the ability to handle bright rooms well. Its feature set offers excellent help and support options, built-in Wi-Fi, and a remote with three programmable keys...

Reproduces lighter black levels; poor screen uniformity; dark areas tinged blue; separate interfaces for apps and widgets can be confusing; somewhat generic styling.

Although it's blessed with a solid feature set, the picture quality of Sharp LC-LE830U series falls short of most LED-based LCD TVs we've tested.

Sharp LC-60LE831U 60-inch Class LED LCD HDTV Reviewed

 

Sharp keeps releasing bigger and bigger televisions, including the 60-inch Sharp LC-60LE831U LED LCD HDTV. Big performance should accompany a big screen, right? Well, not exactly....

The LC-60 is one of the more affordable 60-inch LED HDTVs you can currently buy ; The LC-60 performance is surprisingly good, possessing rich, naturalcolors with solid black levels coupled with near uniform backlighting-something few edge lit LED...

The LC-60's build quality isn't exactly class leading and no doubt areason for its roughly $2,000 asking price. Thankfully, the LC-60'sbuild quality isn't reflected in its performance, which is otherwisevery good ; The LC-60 is not 3D compatible, which...

For a little over $2,000 retail, Sharp's 60-inch LED HDTV, the LC-60,is worthy of your consideration. While it doesn't necessarily "win" anyparticular category in terms of its performance, it's far from theworst. While it's clear to see where Sharp may...

Sharp LC-46LE831E

 

After mostly impressing us with its 3D debut a few months back, the 60in 60LE925E, Sharp has finally followed it up with the more manageable - and vastly more affordable - 46in 46LE831E.

Startlingly good 3D pictures ; Very good 2D pictures too ; Good value

Slightly clumsy OS ; Online features off the pace ; Yellows occasionally look slightly over-aggressive

Sharp has struggled recently to make a big impact on the UK TV scene, but the 46LE831E really deserves to change this. It’s a bit clumsy in places, and its online features need expanding. But when push comes to shove it delivers some of the best 2D and...

Sharp LC-46LE831E review

 

Sharp's lastest Quattron, the LC-46LE831E, puts high colour at the top of its priority list

Clean and detailed pictures ; smooth motion ; good 3D ; competitive price

Can’t deliver darkest black levels of best ; internet TV content missing catch-up TV

For a big-screen for HD, 2D and 3D, this Sharp is enticing and relatively affordable

Sharp LC-46LE831E review

 

Despite the best efforts of a lab-coated George Takei in Sharp's ‘Quattron' TV ad campaign, the brand's unique four-colour technology hasn't fired the imagination of Joe Public as much as was hoped.

Excellent 2D and 3D picture quality; luxurious design

Some marginal colour balance issues and slight backlight clouding; fiddly operating system

Sharp Aquos LC-46LE831E

 

After virtually creating the big screen LCD TV, Sharp's latest Aquos is a huge step in the direction of picture perfection, but is it at the cost of usability? About as serious as LED backlighting gets, there's a lot to like about this 3D Quattron TV....

Brightness, contrast, 3D, 2D, detail, colour accuracy

Freeview EPG, GUI design, remote control

About as serious as LED backlighting gets, there’s a lot to like about this 3D Quattron TV. Proficient with colour, contrast and clean 3D, it's not quite as enjoyable as a Panasonic plasma, but not to far behind. A good size for both 3D and 2D, the...

Sharp LC-40LE831E review

 

Spotless 3D and stunning HD but Quattron tech isn't quite the finished article

Intense, but controlled brightness ; Clean 3D images ; Full HD detail ; Colour ; Wi-Fi dongle included

Spreadsheet-like EPG ; Busy remote ; Rudimentary user interface

Is Sharp's star on the rise? Hot on the heels of the news that Sharp could be about to get investment from Apple to become the supplier of iPhone and iPad screens, here's another fillip to the inventor of LCD TVs – a cracking 3D TV that's a polished...
