Thought this is a lot of telly for the money!

Enhance your viewing experience with the Sharp 4T-C40AJ2KF2FB 40-inch 4K UHD HDR Smart TV.

The HDR creates a greater dynamic range of luminosity than possible with a standard image and there is a natural contrast, for a true-to-life picture.

Sharps have poor speakers

Most TV's these days have poor speakers, it's a tradeoff to get them so thin.

I have a 32 in the spare room and the speakers are the best I’ve ever had on a tv! ?

£250? Bargain!
Sharp. Crap TVs
Anyone know if the OS is Android?
BEWARE of SHARP, I bought a £4,500 80 inch a while ago and the Smart system packed up just after a few months, so I called SHARP themselves to ask for their help, they were totally useless telling me the system had been upgraded and could not be updated !!! What a let down, they were quite obnoxious and offered no help whatsoever. I still have no "Smart" at all. Nasty crowd, never again do I go near anything Sharp again. Pick another make, there's plenty out there to choose from. Dave.
What's the diff between LC-40UI7552K and this one?
Don’t buy a Sharp. I regret the day I bought mine on a Black Friday deal. It makes me so sad watching TV

Incredible that. You would think, £4,500 would come with every bit of support you could ever need. £4,500 is stupid money for a TV, at that price you're going to want the CEO of Sharp to personally come round to your house and fix it
I bought one of these for the bedroom; I had specific space requirements so it was one of few TVs that met my requirements. I would say the picture is very good except during fast-moving/action scenes, even then it’s acceptable for a bedroom TV. Sound is actually pretty good for what it is. For comparison I have an LG OLED in the lounge so I was expecting to be seriously disappointed. There’s no comparison of course, but for the money It’s perfectly acceptable. The only downsides I’ve found are wireless signal and an inability to install Amazon Prime Video (that can be got round with a fire stick etc). I can’t vouch for its longevity yet - only had it 3-4 weeks.

Just but a sound bar. I wouldn't buy any TV without one these days. Even something for £50 would be a marked improvement.
Most Sharp TVs are made by the same people who make all the budget, supermarket brands. So you are getting pretty much the same as a Polaroid, Hitachi or any other cheap brand. For £250, it's a basic TV that's going to give you an okay picture for normal TV or Netflix. Voted for for the price, though I'd spend more personally.

Oh and the HDR is going to be awful and not worth even mentioning.

Very good price. I've owned alot of trash TV's, but never owned a Sharp TV so can't comment. I thought they were pretty reputable though?

If you're anti-Sharp (for whatever reason) and not too fussed about OLED, I would check out HiSense TV's. I was pleasantly surprised with what you get for the price, and honestly never had a problem with them.

...I'm sure some of you guys will of though.
249 seems pretty much pricing for mid range 40 smart
i dont get why this is getting heat its a budget model and 40 inches. not really good. sometimes there is budget 50 inch sets at this price.

What defines "awful HDR" ? Honestly I have no idea, but would possibly be interested in seeing a 4K movie or other on this. Bad idea?

Pretty much any budget TV. HDR requires two things, a TV that can reproduce colours accurately and bring able to provide high brightness levels, this will do neither. So HDR is going to look rubbish and I'd just keep it off.

4k films will look good but this is a budget TV and not the largest, so your not getting the most from a 4k film.
This is a rebadged cheap tv, sharp tvs aren’t the top brand they once were...don’t get hooked in by the badge..

The thing is the challenge that high-street retailers are facing, I hope Richer Sounds is still around in a couple of years time

But you have a good point, I would pay the extra 40 quid for the peace of mind of a generous warranty...
Yeah, Sharp used to be really good - I'm still rocking the 40 1080p inch tv I got in 2013 and it has the best screen and sound I've seen on a tv at the £500 range (compared to friends etc) - these days the screen might be better - more pixels - but the sound is definitely worse. In 2015 though they sold off their name to a cheapo Chinese company who made awful TVs with it, thus the cheap stuff we get these days.

Apparently they've now bought back the name and are making their own TVs again so in future they should be better but these will still be the cheapo Chinese knockoff supermarket TVs.

They seem to be doing well, they've had a bloody fortune from me over the years and I've always sent people their way just for the warranty as it's a no brainer. They do online now as well and don't really have many shops round the UK just spaced out enough to keep them going
The biggest problem I got with my sharp 40 smart tv is the memory problem , if you open 3 apps it will crash mainly on YouTube app , you got to switch tv off and then on to clear memory problem
Thanks for posting @phillyjoe we have added this to today's Highlights page
I wonder it £349 for 49in Samsung in Argos
Sharp TV’s in UK are made under license by UMC. They are based in the UK but the sets are made in Eastern Europe. UMC like Vestel make TV’s for many brands. They are good products for the price but don’t expect the same build quality as a Samsung, LG or Sony that cost significantly more for similar size smart TV. Even certain low end Panasonic’s are not manufactured by Panasonic.
These flicker and blink ,also randomly turn off - no thanks
