Having recently reviewed my first Freeview + HD with PVR along –sort of – comes another. I am assured the units that you buy in the shops will be so; in either 46inch or 40inch size they both have the extra yellow...

The Sharp LC40LE821 comes very close to being the best LCD TV we have come across for some time. Ultimately, black level ability and a touch of backlight inconsistency let it down; but the colour performance alone still makes this TV worthy of serious...

Quattron is the name has gone for with its new range of TVs. It sounds a bit '80s to us, but at least it's vaguely related to the range's USP. You see, these sets have added a fourth, yellow subpixel to the red, blue and green arrangement...

Sharp’s Quattron technology really does produce excellent colour reproduction, and it’s good to see Sharp doing something genuinely innovative at a time when all its rivals are following the 3D bandwagon like a herd of sheep. However,...

The Sharp Quattron will give you a stunning picture, but is it a picture that justifies the £400 to £500 bump over rival Sony or Samsung models of similar specs? We can't confidently say yesKey specs3.5mm jack, Component, Ethernet, HDMI,...

The whole world and its mother seems to be talking about 3D right now. That's where the hype machine is headed, to an extent unprecedented since the first arrival of HD. As a result, it would be easy to imagine that 3D is the only interesting new...

Sharp's fourth colour really does make the grass look greener and its stylish flush screen almost justifies the hefty price...

It’s fair to say that from the outside, innovation appears to be quite rare in the television industry. Of course, the manufacturing processes have been refined over the years, and we’ve seen the additions of HD, 3D, media playback...

International Review By Betabuzz on 81

Der Sharp LC-40LE821E ist ein solides LCD Gerät ohne große Highlights. Bildqualität und Ausstattung gehen über das Nötigste hinaus und bieten vor allem bei HD-Quellen eine sehr gute Performance. Das schicke Design hat allerdings...
