Sharp's LC-46D65E: full 1080p HD

The LC-46D65E boasts full 1080p support and although its 20,000:1 contrast ratio isn’t the highest we’ve seen before, the set should ensure a vivid on-screen display thanks to its 450cd/m² brightness. It’s also got a 176° viewing angle.

Integrated Freesat – as seen in some Panasonic panels – would have been a nice surprise, but instead the Sharp screen makes you settle for an integrated Freeview tuner - hardly anything special these days.

You can also play music and view still images through the set’s built-in USB port.

Around the back of the TV, three HDMI ports are to be found, so connecting a Blu-ray player, PlayStation 3 and whatever other HD goodies you’re lucky enough to own won’t be a problem. Two Scart ports also feature.

A pair of hidden 10W Dolby Digital speakers provide “sound that is as clear as the on screen image”, Sharp said. Software’s also preloaded to ensure that voices are clearly replicated and that overly loud sections of a film, such as gunfights, don't drown out the dialogue.

Sharp’s LC-46D65 LCD TV will be available in the UK from the end of November. A price hasn’t been given.
