I brought this TV for my Mum at a knockdown price from Richer Sounds (£279) I knew at that price it wouldn't be a premium set, but for my Mum it is just perfect. She won't have any HD sources, but I know from experience that Sharp tends to do well with upscaling SD on HD tvs. It is well featured at this price, respectable sound, good EPG and controls, goodish picture (especially for SD) and an OK appearance. A bonus is the ability to record - just add a USB stick. 1Gb is roughly 30 mins of SD recording, so 16Gb is enough for time shifting recordings about. Note that there is only one tuner so you cannot record one thing whilst watching another channel. The picture is vibrant, and very bright. I doubt the colours are dead on the RGB colour gamut, but at this price who cares? For many this TV is more than good enough, a cut above all the unheard of supermarket brands anyway. There is plenty of scope to configure the picture with a number or preset settings which you can customise like movie, game, normal, etc..
I have had a peak into the back of the TV through a vent in the top and the TV panel is clearly marked with a Samsung label saying 'origin Korea, made in Turkey'. Not sure if this means the panel design is Korean and it is assembled in Turkey, or if the panel is made in Korea and shipped to Turkey for final assembly in the TV cabinet. The Sharp labels on the back of the TV and on the shipping box say nothing about the country of origin, but I noticed that Toshiba 40 inchers are also made in Turkey, plus I have read on the web that many of the cheaper LCD Tvs are being made in Turkey.
IMHO there may be better choices of 40 inch for the price Amazon is currently offering this TV at, but watch out for any sudden discounting. Also you may wish to spend a little more and get the newer LED back-lit version, it should have better colour and contrast.
The remote control for the Celcus is pretty similar to the Sharp 40" i.e. light weight with small text, and the numbers/text is totally visible. In any case after some use, your brain will automatically press the right buttons without reading what your pressing ..
Overall I am quiet delighted with this purchase, purchased for my boys to use with their PS3 Console. We already have a 50" Samsung, so we are used to watching large screens, this purchase is without compromise, and it's a well-known brand, good quality FHD TV.Read more ›
