Sharp LC-46LE700UN Video
Although it's blessed with a solid feature set, the picture quality of Sharp LC-LE830U series falls short of most LED-based LCD TVs we've tested.
With decent picture quality and great pricing, the Sharp LC-LE640U series makes a strong case for mainstream TV shoppers who want to go bigger.
Although priced well for a large 3D TV, the Sharp LC-LE745U series can't muster the 2D picture quality to earn our recommendation as a good value.
Since they don't come with improved picture quality, the extra features of the Sharp LC-LE847U series aren't worth the extra money it demands.
The overpriced Sharp Elite LED-based LCD produces the best overall picture quality of any TV we've reviewed since 2008.
Albeit saddled with more picture quality hang-ups than most entry-level LCDs, the Sharp LC-32D47UT does deliver on features and energy efficiency.
The expensive LG 55LW9800's picture quality doesn't live up to the promise of its full-array local-dimming LED backlight.
The G330 Gaming Headset is one of, if not the, most comfortable headsets we've ever tested and may have you sacrificing audio quality for comfort.
Superb all-around picture quality, anchored by the deepest plasma black levels of the year, make the Panasonic TC-PVT30 series the best-performing TV we've tested in 2011.
This extremely expensive set includes a unique backlight, but its picture quality was the most pleasant surprise.
Sharp LC-40LE700UN Review
The good: Inexpensive for an LCD with LED backlighting; extremely energy efficient; effective video processing that can separate antiblur and dejudder functions; intriguing selection of interactive widgets; superb built-in support including live help with remote access; solid selection of picture controls; plenty of connectivity with four HDMI and one PC input.
The bad: Black levels not as deep as LED and some non-LED-based LCDs; less-accurate grayscale; glossy screen reflects ambient light; minor backlight uniformity issues.
The bottom line: The Sharp LC-LE700UN's LED backlighting doesn't elevate its picture quality beyond the LCD norm, but does help make it the most efficient TV we've ever tested.
