    By 8 July 2011

    After virtually creating the big screen LCD TV, Sharp’s latest Aquos is a huge step in the direction of picture perfection, but is it at the cost of usability? One of the few LED-backlit TVs around that stuffs lights all the way across the back of the...

    By 11 June 2010

    Sharp has hit the headlines recently for its new Quattron TVs, which feature a new tech that adds yellow to the traditional RGB (red, green, blue) mix that dominates on all other TVs. They've been nicely reviewed, but a brand cannot survive on high-end,...

    Sharp Aquos Quattron LC-46LE821E television review

    Sharp LC-46DH77E television review

    By 21 April 2009

    A wind-up radio is eco-friendly. So is a solar-powered charger for a phone. But how about a 46-inch LCD TV that uses a smidgen less electricity than the others, but lights-up your entire living room regardless? Err, no way! In our opinion it’s trite...
