before i buy it, how is motion on this tv? i play a lot of games and need to know this
#9
Anyone know if this tele has a digital audio out?
#10
the 5 year gurantee is worth at least £200 on its own. This is a bagin!
#11
I love how this TV looks but avoided buying it due to known 'banding' problems (bands of light shining through during playback)

This issue only affects some sets, making it a lottery.

Which is a shame as previous Sharp LCD's I've had have not only looked good physically, but they've given great results.

Still this is an awesome price...

This is an amazing price for a very good tv, how big is your room?

I sit 8 foot away from my 32" which i feel is way too small. I will be getting a tv this size next for sure.
Bigger is better up to a certain point if you ask me although I'm sure someone will be along shortly quoting optimum viewing distances and all that bollox.

I missed out on the play.com 42inch for £350ish and i was gutted...and i'v been deliberating whether or not to take the plunge as i fully know there will be a price drop before xmas. But, with my birthday coming up i saw this when i got up and it seemed to good to be true. Excellant reviews, a good price anyway and witht the 10% off then its a defo hot TV. Going to make my 360 look awesome on it and can't wait for delivery which should be 3-5 days.

1080p, 46 inch and a nice lookin set too!
#16
mmm. just normal size livingroom. 5x4.Wondering if this might be too big. Also can anybody advise on the HDMI connections? I notice some tvs have 2 and some 3. Do you think 3 would be needed? Dont really know much about these things.

These are the dimensions in mm 728 high x 1127wide x 124 deep. Maybe get someone to hold a tape measure out where the tv will live. Might give you a better idea of the scale of the thing.
#18
just ordered, thanks guys

just hope i dont get one with banding issues :thumbsup:

the 5 year warranty sold it for me

My folks have the Sharp 42 version - their second one as their first one had banding. The 46 model WAS initially VERY prone to banding - complete lottery for purchasers - hopefully they've solved that now ? The pic is excellent when fed by a HD source (DVD/BBC-HD etc), and still very good WHEN FED VIA HDMI from their NTL/Virgin V+ box with the various broadcast channels which is what they do, but regular aerial pictures (terrestial analogue and digital DVB Freeview) are nothing special at 42" let alone 46".

I have a Sony 40 the KDL40v3000 and it is excellent fed from HDMI (HD-DVD) and still very good in my view from Freeview aerial (still awaiting a PVR for Freesat to get HD/HDMI there).

So suggest you factor in your thoughts about pictures SOURCE(S) as the main driving factor in any coin toss between the two options you are considering.

We watch the 40" at around 8' and ideally it would be bigger still.
I found this site interesting re sizes of images/viewing angles etc
http://myhometheater.homestead.com/viewingdistancecalculator.html
And do remember that just a 2" diagonal difference say from 40 to 42 isn't just a 2/40 = 5% change, but a c10% change in AREA; and 42-46 is a 20% increase in screen turf!

Anybody know how this compares to the LC46X20E as I have just had to return this model as faults developed. ( Turning itself off and input menu frequently kept showing).
Is it an older model than the X20E as cant see it on the Sharp website.

Was now considering a Tosh XF or ZFas I'm also keen on the thin surround bezel. The Sharp was also reasonably thin.

Seems a really good price.

Thanks

lol lol lol . Me too. Still confused. They`ll be sold out by the time I make my mind up. I think I`m gonna go for the 40in. It`s got great reviews. There are some doubts about the 46in. Sound being one of them BUT, It all depends on what reviews you read!!! Which makes it even more confusing.
#26
Great price for the tv,but, i ordered a tv from these clowns a little while back and there customer service is AWFUL. The LCD panel went dull on one side and when i phoned them they said it was up to the manufacturer to repair or replace it. It took me SEVEN MONTHS of arguing between empire and the manufacturer before Empire relented and let me choose a new tv. Id never order from them again!

i know its slightly going away from this model, but anyone have any thoughts about the samsung series 6 range, 46" is around £GRAND, how does this compare

how is the samsung 6 series generally?

i was actually planning on getting the 52" version, a little pricey, but when xmas comes round and boxing day - hoping for a dramatic drop

Think I agree with you. Great price for thr Sharp but reviews of the Sony are all top ones. Need to do this order then i can start sleeping at night!! :roll:

Not sure on the full details of the warranty but says 5yrs on the picture of the tv and if you add it to your basket 5yr warranty isadded free.

I don't know why I don't like wide TVs.
#35
Gotta give this heat as i bought this tv a year ago and don't regret it at all! 46 was the biggest i could get for thr gap where i wanted to put it and my advice get the biggest set you can! HD is terrific, Sky SD is mixed - BBC channels good, ITV and 5 not so good but that's due to their signal and not the set. Nice review here which might help - but my advice is to buy it. http://www.hdtvorg.co.uk/reviews/lcd/Sharp_LC46XD1E.htm

hi guys,
I actually purchased one of these just over a week ago so i thought i'd let you know my views after a week of critical viewing.
I have a sky hd box connected via hdmi and an original xbox connected through a xbox hd kit which allows activation of the higher res modes.
This is how I rate the tv in its different inputs

Terrestrial 6/10 - really struggles to cope with action scenes and particularly struggled with soccer and rugby

Freeview 7/10 a huge improvement over terrestrial but my set suffers from a weak tuner and needs an inline amplifier to pull in all stations when my £13 standalone freview box never did.

Component input 10/10 - Component input is made via a supplied adaptor which plugs in the pc (d plug) connector and has three female RGB phono connectors (this lead is suppied) audio connection was made via a twin phono to 3.5mm stereo jack (not supplied).The xbox was forced into ntsc mode and games took on a whole new level of clarity and crispness,almost giving the impression of a 3rd gen console.Video playback on dvd was excellent with no trace of banding.
the menus on XBMC were pin sharp and viewing video divx/xvid video through XBMC was excellent doing a good job of minimising compression artifacts.

HDMI 10/10 video on SD channels through my Sky HD box were much improved over my previous Sky+ box.This may be just down to the box but none the less an improvement.
HD content is simply breathtaking at times,it really did shock me.Pictures have a vibrancy and clarity that i didnt expect for a set of this price.Blacks are pure and deep and skin tones as near to perfect as I have seen on any tv set let alone a sub £650 unit.

Sound 9/10 Some reviewers have criticised its sound but personally I thought the overall performance is excellent.Stereo separation is good and has an impressive 3d effect.My only criticism is that sometimes vocals seem somewhat quiet in comparison to music requireing slight volume adjustments during a movie.there is a mode to improve vocals but I felt this made voices sound rather tinny.

In general an excellent set for Hd and Gaming.Only let down by its poor terrestrial perfomance and week freeview reception.The only banding I experienced was on viewing terrestrial but this was very minor and if I wasnt looking for it I probably wouldnt have noticed it.
An excellent tv for the price and even better if you get it with 10% off.

good stuff. dont watch much tv myself so i should be ok

and to the person debating whether to get the sony or this one... the biggest factor in your decision should be screen size as both put out a great picture. me personally, i prefer to sit 3.5 times the screen size (46inch) away from my tv so 46 is more ideal. its all about viewing distance
#39
The banding as experienced by some people on these sets is faint vertical bands that effect the picture.They are not solid bands but look like alternating bands of contrast about 1.5 inches wide.They are not always visable but do tend to show up more on grey or low contrast/quality images.Some sets suffer more than others with this banding effect.
#40
This is really good. But I have space only for a 40 inch tv.. this is just a tiny bit bigger :-( http://photo-shack.com/img/8f7d807e1f53eff5f9efbe5cb81090fb.gif
