Sharp Aquos LC-46LE821E 46in quad-pixel TV

Do yellow sub-pixels really make for a better picture?

But it’s that extra yellow pixel that is the star turn here. To see how much difference this made I set up the 46LE821E sitting right next to my Samsung telly. My initial impression wasn’t particularly favourable, as the default viewing mode, Standard, struck me as rather dark and dull.

The Aquos nicely makes room for the menu when you need it

However, using the remote control to cycle through the additional viewing modes quickly livened the image up, and there are extensive on-screen menu options for fine-tuning the image further if required.

Nice'n'skinny set

I also liked the way that the Menu button on the remote control shrinks the programme image slightly, creating room on the screen for the various menu options so that you can adjust the image settings while still having a clear view of the image itself.

The remote is decent too

With the two TVs sitting next to each other, the thing that became immediately obvious was how harsh and garish the colours on my Samsung set now appeared. The 46LE821E produced much subtler and more realistic colours, especially on skin-tones.
