I purchased this tv when our 7 month old 32" Toshiba Regza HDTV developed a fault that couldn't be repaired.So for the purpose of this review,i'll share my thoughts on the televisions compared to one another.Both look smart on the stand with a piano black frame.The Sharp has a silver strip running horizontally below the screen and looks better for it.The Toshiba upscaled SD broadcasts whereas the Sharp doesn't appear to so the Toshiba nudges ahead.Sound is clearer on the Sharp which leaves honours even.Where the Sharp moves massively ahead is the HD freeview tuner.Quite simply,the viewing is greatly enhanced and watching SD broadcasts is always disappointing.Unfortunately,though the HD tuner offers 4 channels,the channels don't always broadcast in HD and a silly test page comes onto the screen basically asking you change to the SD channel.We have a Panasonic blu-ray player connected to the TV and again,the Sharp has clearer,sharper sound and possibly provides a better picture.Difficult to be certain.The remote on the Toshiba is smaller and more comfortable in the hand but both do their job with ease.So what would i buy? With a HD Tuner,i'd go for the Toshiba,without one installed,it has to be the Sharp.A HD tuner is a must-have and offers a degree of future proofing.One interesting feature on the Sharp is it automatically updates the firmware at 3am,when updates are available,if the tv is left on stand-by overnight.Quite clever really.
