Presentation of the Sharp 40BF2E

Sharp is now an important television manufacturer, and proposes this basic model 40BF2E, a possible choice tested by our Laboratory.
First, the size : 40 inches on this device.
In spite of this size, the rendering and the picture result are good, without a doubt by means of the technology used .
In addition this Sharp displays a Full 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.

40BF2E from Sharp – Design

With its design identical in every respect to the competition, this Sharp 40BF2E could have difficulty distinguishing itself in a tense entry-level market.
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 40BF2E, 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.

Even for an entry-level model, this new Sharp has a quality image, well calibrated and a very good native contrast.
With this new model, Sharp confirms one of its technological choices. 
The Sharp television set displays a Full HD resolution. Which is already above the average resolution of the range.
And with his 40 inches, he’s in a series of TVs that is positioned in the range of small models.Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
Even better, thanks to its advanced technology, the screen of this television provides a Full HD quality resolution.
In conclusion on the display, with the 40BF2E Sharp helps you to choose a low-end TV set, which will be perfectly at home in your kitchen.

The sound of the Sharp 40BF2E

For those who are not too demanding in terms of quality or sound rendering, this model is interesting. Indeed, the audio system is a little short. Which is normal for this entry-level device.
In terms of sound equipment, the TV is equipped with two speakers 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.
