Starting with the design of the Sharp LC32XL8E we see a slim, thin piano black bezel with the usual silver wave at the bottom of the frame, giving the LC-32XL8E a stylish and highend look. Apart from the 1080p LCD screen the LC-32XL8E also offers another new and highend feature; 100Hz processing “frame drive” which enhances viewing by adding in extra in-between frames to reduce motion blur significantly and also eliminate judder often seeing in panning scenes. These two elements set up the 32-inch Sharp well, and along with a 6ms response time, 24p support, 10bit Signal processing, and a high 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio offer impressive specifications.
