Sharp 32BC4E : an entry-level TFT television set

Sharp 32BC4E : the new HD

The new available television already on sale , the Sharp 32BC4E is a basic product. But in spite of this handicap it doesn’t prove unworthy. Let’s see how it is possible..
Let’s have a look at the size. It’s a 32 inches.
We are dealing with a rather small screen, which is quite unusual with this television maker.
Beside, this television is equipped with a HD resolution.  Its characteristics are basic, but as we said it already some of them could even be considered as mid-range.and so we are left facing an interesting television set.
Is it worth buying it ? This is the question we are going to answer.

32BC4E from Sharp – Design

Cheap doesn’t mean ugly. This could be the rule that has been respected by the designers of Sharp.
Who said that entry-level products could not benefit from quality design? That’s the thought we can face each other with this TV set. That nothing is impossible for Sharp.
In short, the Sharp does the right thing on this model. An entry-level TV for which we would have liked more design work. With this Sharp 32BC4E, no frills. Basic and that’s almost all. It could even be one of those TV sets you turn on to listen to the news; like a radio.

The screen of the Sharp 32BC4E

Even on an entry-level model, the display restitution on this Sharp works very well. The image is faithful and allows to benefit from a clear rendering, without distorting the original source.
Sharp remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it. 
This model has a HD display. With a screen size of 32 inches, this 32BC4E is among the most models in its category.Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a HD quality picture .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s cheap; with the price that goes with it.

TV sound presentation Sharp 32BC4E

In general, the sounds are well reproduced; but you have to forget about bass and low-midrange. It will be preferable to use an external system to enjoy better audio immersion.
For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two loudspeakers and provides a sound power of 10 W.

The sound quality of this TV is in a word mediocre; you feel like you’re back in the past to the days of saturating speakers.
