Sharp LC46X20E Reviewed

sharp_lc46x20ePrice is not the most important factor when looking at an HDTV, but for buyers it’s one of the most important factors without a doubt. The Sharp LC46X20E was only announced a few months back, with a price of £1299, now when looking for the best price, you can find it for about £729, an amazing price drop. At any rate, an 46-inch LCD HDTV for under £800 is a great deal, made even more so when it’s a well respected brand such as Sharp, and offers a Full 1080p LCD panel.

Your cash will buy you an 46-inch 1080p LCD with a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, fast 4ms response time and decent inputs; including three HDMI 1.3 input, PC VGA input and 2x RGB scarts. Tru-D anti-judder technology on the Sharp Aquos LC46X20E is featured for smoothing out image judder that can be visible during slow motion pans.


24p (24 frame per second) mode is supported for true film frame rates, along with “dot by dot” mode which enables you to watch HD quality at the original speed and without and unsightly stretching. TrustedReviews said starting our tests of the Sharp LC46X20E with Blu-ray, we were for the most part very impressed by what the set can do with HD source material. The price wins the day with us, as we just can’t stop feeling that getting hold of 46 inches of always decent, sometimes outstanding HDTV pictures for under £730 really does look like an opportunity too good to pass up.
