Good find for those in the market for a Branded LCD at a budget brand price, Argos even have stock..surprise surprise!! Hot from me!

Good price!!!
Ive had problems with mine. Bought it a year ago, within 3 months IR sensor in the tv stopped working. Sharp engineer came and replaced the whole board in the tv. Now 2 months on from that the sound is distorted intermittently but its now out of warranty...

Also user interface is painfully slow the reaction time to pressing a button is like 2 seconds... It gets quite annoying.


Price is ok, considering I bought mine for £300 over a year ago, but probably better to spend an extra few pounds and buy other brand.
Seems cheap for a 40"

Can't argue about a branded TV at that price!

You're right on the money on this one, section 13 if memory serves me right. Reserved the TV

Not Freeview HD & only 50Hz is not so hot from me, but guess it's good value if you aren't bothered about that.

Whats a ir sensor and is it comon with sharp tvs?


Edited by: "lcdtvguru" 6th Sep 2012
I was going to reserve one but looked at the energy rating, why would a LCD be "C" rated, is it me or is that a little high by todays standards? I know very little about TV's by the way...

This is normal when the screen is backlighted by a fluorescent lamp and not by light emitting diodes (LEDs)

Does the interface include the built in Freeview? If so surely loads of people use it?

I would anyway, not paying for television...
Does this have 1:1 pixel mapping when connected to a PC through VGA and/or HDMI? Also, does it "play well" with PCs, announcing supported resolutions correctly?

I did search the net for a while for the answer, but I could only find one review which said it was good with the reviewer's laptop. It wasn't specific about resolution or pixel mapping.

ANSWER: No, it doesn't support that. Maximum PC resolution supported is 1360x768 according to the manual. What a shame.
Edited by: "davtom" 6th Sep 2012
is it worth buying yes or no and would you expect to have problems with it ?
I thought the cheaper sharp tv's were badged up supermarket tv's.
Same for Hitachi , Toshiba and maybe other "brands"..
Argos are the masters of this practice.

I seriously doubt that is the case. As long as you use the HDMI port from your laptop it should have no trouble with showing 1080p. I have never heard of such as restriction on a 1080p panel, it might be for the VGA input it is referring too.

So does this mean that its not a proper sharp tv instead a home brand tv with sharp logo on it, is it worth buying from argos
comon guys need a answer
Just a Vestel set with a Sharp badge stuck on it (Sharp have been doing this for ages, they only manufacture the top end sets themselves now). Hence the low price.
Bought Tv today picture is perfect and built quality is superb get it purchased!!! i looked at tesco teknika 40" lcd at £259 pretty cheap looking sharp one looks superb..
Thanks i will get it and take a risk do u still get the automatic 1 yr warranty and 30 day exchange and refund

It surprises me as well and, as you say, it probably refers to the VGA input capability, but I have had problems with another TV that was 1080p but didn't report its capabilities correctly using I think EDID over either type of cable, so the PC didn't know it could drive the monitor at 1080p, and I had a load of problems as a result trying to get there that I don't want to repeat.

In addition, I definitely want the 1:1 pixel mapping capability. I've learned by experience that if I am using a TV as a PC monitor (as I will be doing occasionally) and it doesn't have 1:1 pixel mapping and I'm viewing small text, it appears fuzzy because of the "noise reduction" features that TVs apply to the picture. I assume this doesn't because the 1920x1080 mode is not explicitly stated in the manual for PC use.

This shouldn't stop anybody else from considering this model, though; I think the price is great for what is on offer. It's just no good for me. My requirements come from having an HTPC and sometimes using it to do web browsing and that sort of thing. That won't apply to most people.
@ davton do u think the tv is worth buying iv checked out vestel and they dont seem to supply sharp lcd tv based in the UK and its 50hz does that mean it guna motion blur etc
