The first thing we always do is to analyze the design since it is the first thing that is obvious and also because it is important.
Considering the price level the design is good. We perhaps would have liked something more accomplished, but it is, it must be remembered, an entry-level television set.
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.

40BF2E from Sharp – The screen

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. 
This model has a Full HD display. This resolution is clearly better than what is generally done.
And with his 40 inches, he’s in a series of TVs that is among the most models in its category.In the end, it is interesting to note that beyond the size, the screen is well made. A point to add when choosing between this model and other competitors.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a Full HD quality picture .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s cheap; with the price that goes with it.

The sound of the Sharp 40BF2E

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.
The television set is equipped with  two loudspeakers and provides a sound power of 10 W.

Finally, if we have to summarize the sound of the 40BF2E Sharp, fair is the right word for it.
