Summary: Bought this TV and i don't write reviews but i have got to say if you're looking at this set and pondering don't BUY IT !!! its a steal at this price and would be well worth its full retail price HD picture is absolutely stunning and 3D is as good as anything i have seen out there using Sharps 3D active glasses.
Summary: This is Sharp's latest 2011 3D 40" LED TV model for the UK/Europe which is the up-rated non 3D LC49LE830 which is well rated especially in the USA. The 40" size is only about and inch wider each side than a 37" Panasonic LCD it replaced so it looks smart due to the slim thinner frame which has an added cosmetic gunmetal strip around.
Summary: Haven't got much experience of flat screen TVs, but am very pleased with this choice. The spec. was what I wanted, so ticks all the boxes I needed. Good size, LED, 100 MHz, 3D, 35W speakers, internet enabled (has WiFi dongle included, and ethernet port for my in-line power connection), and plenty of HDMI ports. The HDMI cable connection has made a big difference to our DVD viewing (not quite ventured into Blu-ray yet).
