LC-32HI5332E from Sharp : Test and analysis

What about the new Sharp LC-32HI5332E ?

Recently Sharp has released information about its new model of television . It is the LC-32HI5332E.
Classified in the mid-range category. we thought we had to have a closer look at it in order to check whether the constructor had done a good job or not.
First, the size : 32 inches on this device.
Small but tough ; hopefully seeing its size , it will perhaps follow you (house move or holidays…). Good opportunities to test its reliability in the long run.
In addition this Sharp displays a HD resolution.  With a diagonal of 32 inches, this mid-range model canbe considered as a rather cheap television .
Although placed in the middle of the range, the manufacturer has tried to offer the viewer an image quality that allows an immersion.
We will see in detail if their objective is reached.

The design of the Sharp LC-32HI5332E

Sober but in line with current trends. Sharp has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
Very different from its predecessors, the brand tries here to differentiate itself to meet the needs of consumers.
A product that is correct in view of its price. A sleek but effective design. It has the potential to compete with other TV sets on the market.
This new Sharp LC-32HI5332E is quite standard, flat.
With an interesting size of 32 inches, As far as the base is concerned, there are also things to say. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.A mid-range television set that relies heavily on its design and the quality of its materials; arguments that Sharp has been promoting for some time now on these products. All this for a price that stays contained.

By providing it with a frequency of 60 Hz, this makes this TV set better positioned than its competitors. A perfectly synchronized image that will delight you for your home cinema.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a HD quality picture .
In conclusion on the display, with the LC-32HI5332E Sharp makes the choice of the mid-range. No more.

To conclude on the Sharp LC-32HI5332E

In conclusion, the Sharp LC-32HI5332E is a mid-range television set of good quality. Average in most areas, it is nevertheless a wise choice for consumers who want to have a well-made product.
The choice of Sharp to include the smart TV system with the best of its know-how in the LC-32HI5332E, leads us to say that this high-end TV is worth having a good look at it.
This TV has the correct resolution, nothing more. Producing and marketing TVs today in HD is often sufficient and well suited for ‘basic’ uses. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. It is therefore a temporary and/or occasional choice. You’ve been warned.

From this new Sharp we can retain 3 positive points:
the display frequency, the depth of the colours, the screen size.
