Outstanding picture quality and all-round performance, and value for money make the Sharp LC-40LE831E one of the best bargains around. Sharp LC-40LE831E is tagged with Sharp, LC-40LE831E, review,...

Viewing pictures on the Sharp LC 40L 831E you can immediately see that the vibrancy of colours really stands out
Bright colours such as blues really come alive, even in 3D
The 3D effect is very good indeed
Pictures pop out convincingly as they should without being jarring on the eyes
Where the Sharp LC 40L 831E also shines is in the clarity of its 3D images
One of the major drawbacks is having to purchase the glasses separately
At 59.99 they dont exactly come cheap
And youll want at least two if you want others to share the 3D experience with you
Wi-Fi built in, instead of having to use a dongle would have been a nice touch but as it stands the Sharp LC 40L 831E still offers great value
Some marginal colour balance issues and slight backlight clouding
