Wow, amazing how these prices come down - around 2 years ago I bought the 42" previous model and it was £1200!

Still, had to take it back due to problems twice, got refund and now have a plasma - thankfully!

Voted hot.

Good price :thumbsup:

Great price for a 46in LCD. Have to point out the contrast ratio isnt too good. Voted hot tho.

Voted cold.

Very poor contrast ratio and only 2 HDMI sockets.

Also the 100Hz they claim isn't true 100Hz, they cheat using this "double frame" nonsense which isn't equivalent to what people expect 100Hz to be.

Contrast ratio: 2000:1

muppets

I have the older 42"" sharp lcd that has less than this and can be viewed from any angle and is bright enough for any light darkeness etc.
Stop being snobs LOL

I paid £1,400 for mine. just over a year ago so that tv above is a bargain and it does 1:1 pixel mapping without overscan unlike lots of others

Watch out for banding on sharp tv's though, I use mine for pc monitor through dvi>hdmi and get 1920x1080 and a stunning picture, do not use VGA for PC, Still looks OK but full res is better than limited VGA specs, you can alwyas get an cheap hdmi switch from currys for £20 to expand the HDMI sockets a little.

i think the contrast ratio must be 20000:1 not 2000

power RMS for speakers is best rather than pmpo or pmpq when some people buy based on PMPO etc they are suckered and contrast ratio for tv's can be listed similar to power ratings as in dynamic contrast so a bit misleading some specs are some of the time when dealing with contrast.

Who cares it's a good tv for that price and if not bright enough stick some candles on it.

No, it really sucks.

Even the newer 2E model only has a contrast ratio of 2000:1 (dynamic 10,000)

This is nothing more than it is, a cheap TV. It's half original price for a reason, they didn't sell.

I would not buy another Aquos unless it was from John Lewis with a huge warranty. Had to take the back off my 3yr old one the other week and reseat the backlight circuit board to stop the picture cutting out (it was either that or pay hundreds for a repair.) At the same time the luminance has gone on the one I got my m-i-l for Christmas 2006. That's not screwdriver job, that's a new tuner/circuit board. Bog that for a game of soldiers... it's Panny or Tosh for me next time.

Not a bad price if you want a cheap/big 1080p screen I suppose, but it is cheap for a reason.

IIRC it was replaced with a newer model (XL2E) which was slimmer, more HDMI ports etc within about 2-3 months of being on sale which was a bid odd, and you won't find much in the form of reviews etc. It is also from around the same generation as the other Sharp sets which were putting people off with the banding issues.

I personally would never, ever, ever invest in a TV without first considering reviews and user feedback.

2000:1 is excellent for an LCD.

2 HDMIs may be an irritatant for some, but HDMI splitters are dirt cheap now.

100hz is a stupid gimmick on any TV - you're guessing at information that isn't there, thus creating artifacts. I've never seen it done well, and that includes software setups maxxing out a 3.5ghz quadcore PC.

Since moving to flatscreen we've always had Aquos TV's and never had a problem. Started with the LC37HV4E (I remember all the model numbers, how sad!) at £2700 back in the day! Got the LC42XD1E at the moment and it's fab. I see they've got the LC46XD1E for under £640 with the voucher which seems very good. I know the 46" had a higher spec than ours when we bought it but it was £1500 vs £1000 for the 42". I don't think going to a 46" would be a worthwhile upgrade, maybe wait for the 50"+ models to come down some more.

So what's the difference between the LC46XL1E and the LC46X20E at the same price?

I SAID this is a cheap TV

I never said it was good, HD, or 46""

It was £399 delivered. You missed the point though I SAID it was a cheap TV unlike the Sharp LCD being accused of the same
