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.I found Quattron’s...

We don’t think Sharp’s engineers got adequate kudos for creating Quattron quad-pixel tech in the first place; it was a remarkably inventive bit of engineering. Now with this TV they’ve pushed the concept forward yet again. Well worth...

It’s been a while now since we had a look at one of Sharp’s LCD TVs, which made their delivery of a the new LC40LE831E quite timely, since we’re always eager to see what the Japanese LCD innovator is up to. The company has a tradition...

The 40LE831E is ultimately not quite as desirable as the 46LE831E, partly due to the way its smaller size decreases its 3D impact, and partly due to the 40LE831E’s marginally less sharp HD pictures. But it’s still a very fine TV for its...

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...

Getting your head around TV range is altogether less taxing than it is for other brands. While others offer myriad models within countless ranges, Sharp has a much more manageable roster.Quattron is the name of the latest range, and contains eight...

If you’re concerned about Internet connectivity, then rivals such as Samsung offer a more comprehensive range of on-line services. However, I remain a fan of the rich, vivid images produced by Sharp’s four-colour Quattron technology and...

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...

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" any particular category in terms of its performance, it's far from the worst. While it's clear to...

The Sharp Aquos LC-40LE831E LED TV has its plus points, such as its impressive 3D performance. But its 2D picture quality could be better and its Internet features lag behind the...

LC-46LE831 är utrustad med Sharps speciella Quattron-bildpanel som kan skryta med en fjärde färg. Utöver primärfärgerna rött, grönt och blått har panelen också pixlar med gult, vilket ska ge både...

Til tross for at vi har sutret litt over brukervennligheten, så kommer vi ikke utenom at TV-en gjør det bra på det som teller mest: Bildekvaliteten er god jevnt over, og spesielt liker vi det matte panelet. Når TV-en i tillegg er...

LC-46LE831S kommer med Sharps eget spesielle Quattron bildepanel, for det reklameres med en fjerde farge. I tillegg til primærfargene rød, grønn og blå har den også en gul fargepiksel, som skal gi både mer nøyaktig...

Der Sharp LC-46LE831E ist eine hervorragende, preislich faire Wahl für anspruchsvolle Zuschauer. Der Hersteller macht nur wenig falsch und liefert am Ende des Tages ein gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis...

International Review By Prylportalen on

Sharp tillhör inte de TV-tillverkarna som säljer mest i Sverige men har ändå klarat konkurrensen hyfsat bra genom att släppa modeller som inte behöver skämmas när det kommer till bildkvalitet. LE831-serien är...
