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

Aquos style at a fraction of the price

Great value for money

Sharp Aquos LC-37GD8E LCD television - Pocket-lint

 

The consistent sharp and vibrant images and built in DTV tuner make this an excellent display for the price

Excellent picture quality, effective interface and image control, HD-ready, built in DTV tuner

Bass suffers at higher levels, only one HDMI port

Despite its minor foibles the GD8E is an excellent panel that falls in line with the high display and build quality we’ve seen in many of Sharp’s recent offerings. Bearing in mind you pick it up online for under a grand it comes highly recommended.

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

Sharp LC-32GD8E : If your after an LCD Televison, take a look at Sharp!

 

I bought this TV to replace a 25 inch 4:3 CRT JVC TV in our living room. The TV is 32 inch widescreen which is HD ready to 720p/1080i. It's not fully 1080p HD compatible however. I have not used any HD material or footage on this screen yet, however, I...

Sharp LC32GD8E

 

AutoSets up nicely, on install

need to dig into Digital autosetup, but when it does it works very well ; Can't quite fugure yet how to record from digital tuner within TV onto DVD recorder. Seems I may be to either split arial and another tuner, or watch whatever recoring at the time

Sharp LC32GD8E

 

I liked the style of the set and this was as important as getting a good quality unit within my budget. Finish is very good, and controls are easy to use. Picture quality is very good

I've had a bit of vibration on sound (not caused by high level)but am experimenting with the mounting unit still to ensure that the cause is not due to it
