Ah - see it now mate. £50 discount code. I’m tempted. 🏻
Got this as a bedroom television on black friday, very good for the price although a tad slow on start up for getting to the apps.
Got the 3021 version at Xmas, good picture and sound. Only paid £179 though!

John Lewis or Richer Sounds for me for that very reason.
had a sharp 32" recently as a stop gap TV; it was poor compared to Samsung I now have, so I would recommend paying more for a better brand.
I have one of these only slightly bigger. Wouldn't buy a sharp again, sometimes completely crashes and needs a hard reset to sort it. Slow, not the best quality.. But for occasional use it's a bargain.
These "Sharp" TVs are built by Hisense. The actual Sharp (which is now owned by Foxconn) sued them last year for creating such godawful products that it was tarnishing the Sharp brand. I think the suit ended up being dropped in the end, but the fact that the company with their name on these things found them so appalling as to sue over them is probably a red flag.
Save your hard earned £279 on something made with some some degree of expertise

Huh? Ive never had a TV thats lasted less than 10 years??
In fact my youngest TV was bought in 2013 making that about 5 years old.
I can honestly say a TV is probably the most reliable appliance you'll own!

Have had to have 3 or 4 TVs sorted over the years, and never had an argument from them about any of them. All of them Samsung or Sony, and one just before the 5 years was up. Each time it was fixed, or replaced, or I was given a generous credit towards another one.

That's peace of mind to me.

I could say the same about the cars I've had, but that's not everybody's experience, so it really is the luck of the draw. I simply wouldn't buy without a long warranty, at least not anything expensive (to me anyway).

These "Sharp" TVs are built by Hisense

European Sharp's are made by UMC.

I got the cheaper version on Black Friday and it needs to go in for repair for a second time due to a bunch of faults (TV Guide crashes TV on exit, network error in apps, reset function doesn't work...).

Smaller Toshiba I bought at the same time has been faultless.
Have had two of the non-smart versions of these for two years. Mine are freeviewHD only.

They were £179 each from Tesco back in Jan 16. Shows what the plummeting £ has done to the price of electronics!!

The TVs have a good picture for the money, but beware their remotes are Bluetooth/Wireless rather than infrared so Sky remotes etc won’t control them....

That was in North America, these Sharp's are made by UMC. Still nothing to do with Sharp though, other than the name badge on the front. However it looks like they, or their new owner Foxconn has bought a stake in UMC taking back control. So Sharps may well change soon... for the better? who knows?....they never made particularly great TV's even when they were Sharp through and through.

My LG lasted three years before it got a green line down it panel failure then a year later it developed a switch off fault which eventually means it's one week on one week off so I have to disagree. My next TV when a hotdeal comes up won't be LG and will be JL or richer sounds just wondering how you affect the warranty do they collect them free of charge as I don't drive. And is it easy to get them to price match a deal on here how do you do that
