Sharp Aquos LC-32GD8E 32in LCD TV

 

If you're looking for a 32in LCD TV on a budget, this Sharp is well worth a look.

Sharp LC-32GD8E review

 

A well-priced big-brand 32in LCD TV

At £800, it's well-priced ; Excellent response time ; Has a built-in tuner

Skimps on the connections ; Shows strong evidence of MPEG noise ; Some blacks can look blue - unnatural

As cheap as chips but not that powerful. Ideal for first-time HD TV buyers on a budget

Sharp LC-32P50E review

 

An LCD TV which claims to be optimised for PAL...

Great standard definition pictures ; HDMI input ; Lack of noise

HD pictures short of fine detail ; Only two Scarts ; No PC jack

What seems like a novelty is actually a very good idea - we're impressed!

Sharp LC-32GD8

 

Sharp's LC-32GD8 is an entry-level screen that's the most competitively priced model here, especially if you shop around online. However, you can expect a few compromises for the privilege of paying less.

Great value, sleek styling, interactive adjustment options, good performance for the price

Average build quality, limited connectivity, no advanced processing, bleached black levels
