Sharp lc 32dh501e 4

The set's big bottom does not, sadly, help the audio performance. Bass is just as lacking as it is on more slender flatscreens, the mid-range is rather thin and cramped and treble tones are harsh.

It's not bad, as such, for a 32in set, it's just disappointingly average.

Value

We'd hoped that the 32DH510E's reasonably affordable price might be the first step towards it being a real bargain.

But by the time you've taken the average looks, inconsistent pictures and par-for-the-course sound into account, the price seems merely fair, rather than remarkable.
