Sharp Aquos LC-32LE210E 32in LCD TV
Bedroom furniture makeover time?
However, the brightness and contrast do start to drop off if you move about 45-degrees to the side, so the viewing angle could certainly be improved. The 20W stereo speakers provide decent output, although the bass is a bit thin. The modest price also means that the LC-32LE210E lacks features such as motion-interpolation or a 24fps cinema mode, but it’s not aimed at home cinema fans, so those aren’t crippling omissions.
A good enough excuse to make some space in the bedroom?
I’ve got a bulky old CRT hogging a corner of my bedroom at the moment, so I completely understand what Sharp is aiming for with the LC-32LE210E. However, there are cheaper 32in sets available, and at this price it really ought to include Freeview HD. Sharp also needs to simplify the process of recording onto USB devices. The LC-32LE210E is a good entry-level HD TV, but still looks a bit pricey compared to some of the very competitive models that are now available in the sub-£500 category. Even so, those record and playback functions certainly do come in handy. ®
