    LCD innovator Sharp seemed to have got its groove back when we reviewed the 42in version of this model. And this elegant £2,000 TV, glossy black and silver trimmed, looks the part too

    With an abundance of 1080-line material now available from the likes of Sky HD, Blu-ray and HD DVD, there's a growing demand for TVs with 1920 x 1080 resolution. Sharp's LC-37XD1E recognises this need, boasting a 'full' HD resolution

    As one of the first brands to really pursue LCD as a TV rather than PC monitor technology, the good people Sharp must have been feeling pretty sick in recent times as various rival brands have rather overtaken them in the LCD quality stakes

    Most manufacturers' new ranges of TVs seem like simply a gentle progression from what they've produced before. But on the evidence of the LC-42XD1E, Sharp's new LCD range is more like a full-blown revolution

    With 'full HD' TVs all the rage and high-gloss the look of choice, the 42-inch LC42XD1E may seem to be merely a case of keeping up with the pack. But look closer and you'll find an LCD TV that marks a new high point for HD performance and value

    Having been there right at the start of the LCD TV boom, Sharp's slightly struggled of late to keep pace with some of its bigger, brasher rivals, in both performance or features. But the new LC42XD1E sees the brand playing catch up emphatically

    We have to admit that against our expectations, Sharp's 'PALoptimised' 32P50 LCD TV made a good case for itself as the LCD TV of choice for anyone wanting a screen for predominantly watching standard-definition pictures

    As an introduction to Sharp's new Full HD LCD generation, the 42-inch LC42XD1E couldn't have been more impressive. Now we get our hands on the 50-inch version - the LC52XD1E

    Sharp could finally be about to reassert itself at the apex of the very LCD market it helped to create with this, its first full HD model. The company has departed from the 'titanium' design of previous flagship Aquos models

    Sharp's latest 32in LCD TV comes across as a little bit confused: it looks good on the surface, but scrape away, and we feel that some papering over the cracks may have come into play.

    Finding ourselves faced with one of Sharp's more basic HDTVs just doesn't get the pulse racing as much as it otherwise might have. But we were pleasantly surprised.

    Sharp has been in the LCD TV game for longer than most of its competitors, but this is the first of its Aquos range to come at a truly budget price: £800 will get you one of these on the high street, and shopping online might knock £200 off that.

    First impressions of the LC-32GA9E are mixed. At first, the outer frame's curves and angles create an eye-catching impact - especially given how they contrast with the deep black of an inner frame set around the screen.

    On its launch the LC-32GA6E straddled the mid-market/budget price border, but now this 32in LCD is firmly in the budget flatscreen category. But this low cost hasn't affected its looks.

    Big LCD TVs used to be as rare as hen's teeth only a few years ago: now Sharp pulls a 37-inch offering out of the bag for only £1,000. This budget beauty represents sheer value for money. Great news, but of course, corners have had to be cut.

    Brace yourself: Sharp's dashing looking LT-32P70E is not HD Ready. But, Sharp sees the LT-32P70E's non-HD Ready status as a potential strength.

    Sharp is a rare manufacturer that can claims 'a look' all to itself, with its Aquos line-up of HD Ready LCDs. Despite this 37-inch LCD TV sitting at the budget end of that range, there are plenty of design flourishes ...
