Advantages: HDMI ports, freeview.
Disadvantages: Viewing disturbances at angles.
So i'm sitting here, watching our new 32" Sharp tv whilst writing this review and I have to say it's a bit of a disappointment. Let me explain, the tv is good, don't get me wrong however, there are a few issues with the tv which leave me slightly upset. Firstly, the angles are all wrong, if you aren't within a certain degree of the screen then the picture takes a slight but noticeable blur, at first I thought it was my eyes but alas, it is the tv. Now the blur is only slight, but if you're living with four other people then some people's viewing experience is bound to suffer when you have to be sitting head on to actually get a crisp picture.
Maybe i'm being harsh, this is a mid-range tv and isn't too pricey. There are worse tvs at in the price range but it can get a little frustrating after a while. Sound quality is good, I read another review which suggested the speakers vibrated but I haven't had those problems, even when the tv is turned up to a high volume so i'm not going to complain about the sound. HDMI ports are pretty common on tvs nowadays and this tv will give you 2 ports which are accompanied by a scart and AV port. I can't really see why you would need more than that but hey-ho, if you need more then this tv probably isn't for you.
All in all, this is a pretty standard tv. Picture quality does suffer if you have to watch it from an angle but it's not terrible just a slight blur. This tv really would be ideal for a bedroom or the lounge in a small flat where you're able to position yourselves at a more direct viewing station. I almost forgot, the in-built freeview is a nice touch with a decent menu which is user friendly. The tv also comes with a sturdy stand that doesn't take too much table space.
Summary: An average mid-ranged tv, ideal for bedrooms or smaller rooms.
