The reviews all say the picture is excellent.

beware it's not really made by Sharp (the famous Japanese company).these are re-branded tvs,licensed..so the tv is actually either a Vestel (Turkey) or UMC (China).nothing to to with real Sharp except the brand logo.

May as well buy a Vestel or UMC and place a Sharp sticker over the top of the logo and save everyone a lot of hassle then!

Ah the cursed "HD Ready", scourge of the over zealous shopper. I really don't get how they've got away with this for so long, it absolutely isn't "ready" for HD at all...
It is a cheap tele for watching cartoons on, though.

HD starts at 1280x720, which this can do. So it is HD ready, just not FULL HD

Well, ok... "HD" vs "Full HD" - you kind of highlighted my point. Do you work for a TV company?

HD ready doesn't just mean resolution, it has to meet further requirements like HDCP. They're not pulling the wool over your eyes, it's a recognised specification, if you want 1080p then look for that logo, simples

Excellent price, the freeview HD gives us NI residents access to the RTE channels!

ummmm any tv that's 720p isn't hot at all..and especially at that price and that size

I just recommened the FHD Bush for £149 to a friend over this. Can anyone explain the point of a freeview HD tuner in a standard res telly?

I like to give good advice. Am I missing something? This has gone hot(ish) to my surprise.

I have to agree with colourpie. The term HD ready should be banned.

I understand it. I just think it's disingenuous. It was obviously a way to cash in on the early days of the "HD" hype and sell lots of sub-1080 sets to less clued-in punters, and continues to do so. In all honesty 720p doesn't look that bad at all, especially at 32", but that's not the point!

*edit* Last bit of moaning, honest. If they wanted to be clear, they could have set out clearer "HD720" and "HD1080" logos. The fact that the HD ready logo is "HD" in massive text, and "ready" in tiny letters underneath just compounds my suspicions. Anyway, despite what you might think I have not been caught out by it. Just don't like it.

PS I actually voted hot because it's quite an attractive television and 31W (if that's true) is quite impressively low.

If that's the one from
Argos I believe that hasn't got freeview HD, it's only standard, worth checking anyway

Yes, standard freeview but a 1080 display. What is the point of freeview HD on a HD ready TV?

It's funny because you really don't understand HD. HD is 720p and 1080p. This TV is basically the computer version on 720p (my mixed analogy) which is actually higher resolution than normal 720p. Up until recently the best TV on the planet was 720p which even today is still better than most 1080p TVs. HD ready is a marketing and slight misleading term but it is still HD.

Oh and Google the ISF and see that resolution is 4th on the list of important screen qualities after things like colour and contrast ratio. You want to see real marketing BS? Check out the 1:1000000 contrast ratios.

Can't get a sky magic eye to work on this. Any ideas if it supports it? Basically utilising the RF from sky box
