Sharp 40BG2E : the television Full HD

40BG2E from Sharp – Presentation of this Full HD

Sharp proposes today a new basic model, equipped with technological solutions which work, the 40BG2E.
First of all, regarding the size of the screen, we are facing a 40 inches.
In spite of this size, the rendering and the picture result are good, without a doubt by means of the technology used .
Beside, this television is equipped with a Full HD resolution.  From our point of view it is interesting. Given the price, this model appears as a good choice. Not too expensive but anyway it is made with elements which we think will withstand in the long run .
No wahoo effect on this model, but the correct one. In short, the manufacturer’s goal with this model is to provide a product that meets everyday TV needs.
An analysis will determine if the objective is achieved and if it is relevant to buy it.

40BG2E from Sharp – Design

With its design identical in every respect to the competition, this Sharp 40BG2E could have difficulty distinguishing itself in a tense entry-level market.
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 the end, we’re on an entry-level product. Even if at this level, when it comes to design, we could simplify it by saying that it is cheap. Materials of poorer quality and ergonomics identical to what was done 5 years ago, make this Sharp 40BG2E a just acceptable television set.

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.
With this new 40BG2E Sharp, the company makes an assumed technological choice. 
The Sharp 40BG2E is available in the Full HD resolution. This resolution is clearly better than what is generally done.
And with his 40 inches, he’s in a series of TVs that is at the bottom of its range.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.
In addition, Sharp has decided to use its mastery of advanced technology on this device, which allows it to benefit from a high quality Full HD image resolution.
Thus, the Sharp 40BG2E allows you to have a device in another room (the kitchen for example), without too much affecting your budget.

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 baffles and a power output 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.
