Sharp LC32RD2EThe Sharp LC32RD2E is a 32-inch LCD HDTV with 100Hz technology. 32-inches and 37-inch HDTVs are currently the most popular size on the market, so the LC32RD2E has to be great to compete in this highly competitive size market. The Sharp LC32RD2E has a 1366×768 resolution for 720p and 1080i HD formats, but not 1080p or “Full HD”, but do not let this disappoint you. Many tests on both all HD formats have shown that is is very hard, if not impossible to see any advantage or improvement in 1080p for HDTVs 32-inches or smaller. The LC-32RD2E is a very modern HDTV offering a very high dynamic contrast ratio of 10,000:1 for great colors, and the latest 100Hz (high refresh rate) technology for sharp, crisp images even during fast motion scenes with no motion blur.
