Samsung UE22D5000

RH Numbers

Step up from Samsung’s CCFL-lit D450 models and you’ll find the brand’s entry-level edge-LED D5000 screens. Slim at 29.9mm and well built for the price, its WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor) is high. This model is 50Hz, but if you opt for the larger 32in screen in the same range you’ll get 100Hz picture processing and network streaming.

The UE22D5000 features a regular Freeview tuner but uses a 1920 x 1080 panel. Playback quality is good, although motion resolution isn’t best in class.

The brand’s MagicAngle mode also allows you to optimise image quality depending on your viewing angle. 
Media streaming from USB is accomplished. File support covers AVI, MKV, WMV, MP3, WMA and PCM. Audio quality is average, although SRS audio processing is on hand to widen and plump.

Sharp Aquos LC22LE430

RH Numbers

Sharp effectively kick-started the LCD TV market with its first dramatically designed Aquos small-screen set a decade ago. Ten years on, the brand’s LCD models have become rather more conventional, although the up-scale Aquos line still exhibits a certain amount of designer flair.

This edge-LED TV, for example, combines a piano black frame with a distinctive white back and pedestal. Although a standard 50Hz proposition, the 1920 x 1080 panel is capable of vibrant, contrasty images.

There’s a DivX+ HD certified USB media reader integrated as well, offering an acceptable range of file support including AVI and MKV. Audio, courtesy of the 2 x 3W speakers, is ordinary.
