Although not as thin as some of the Edge-lit LED TVs currently on the market this Sharp panel none the less is a super looking piece of kit that delivers one of the best pictures in its price range.
Full Backlighting LED Television
The Full LED TV has an array of light emitting diodes (LEDs) that cover the entire screen and greatly improve the contrast and colour realism in comparison to LCD TVs. The difference is that the LEDs do not output the unnecessary colours that the cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) does in a traditional LCD TV.
Therefore, on an LED TV, blacks don’t appear washed out and grey as they do on an LCD TV and the colours are much more vivid and vibrant.
LED TV Green Credentials
As well as improved picture quality the other main benefit of an LED display are its green credentials.
It is these that will perhaps encourage many people to buy the Sharp LC32LE700E LED TV, because not only will the lower power consumption save you money in the long term, but you will of course be reducing your carbon footprint and helping to save the environment.
The LC32LE700E has seven ecological features.
The Full LED screen and the X-Gen panel are the first two, which together use less power than a conventional LCD display.
It should also be pointed out that a Full LED panel also uses less power than an Edge LED panel as the LEDs are closer to the screen using Full LED, so they can run at a lower power for the same brightness.
The third energy-saving feature is a main power switch on the TV, which is nearly equivalent to turning the set off at the wall and will save a lot of energy in comparison to leaving the TV on standby.
The fourth and fifth energy-saving features are Eco Picture Control (EPC) and Optical Picture Control (OPC).
These technologies adjust the brightness of the backlight according to the picture signal (EPC) and the ambient light conditions in the room (OPC).
This decreases the power consumption as the brightness doesn’t have to be on full all the time. It is also easier on the eyes.
The sixth energy-saving feature is the No-Signal Off feature that simply turns the TV into standby mode if there is no signal for 15 minutes, or no operation for a pre-set period of time.
This ensures the TV is not left on unnecessarily and wasting energy.
The final green aspect is the fact that the Sharp LC32LE600E LED TV is made without mercury, meaning this harmful substance is not released into the environment.
All these eco-features mean the Sharp LC32LE700E LED TV has been awarded the European Union Eco Flower, which is only given to products certified to meet the strict environmental standards of the EU.
100Hz Technology for Flicker Free Motion
In addition to the LED panel the LC32LE700E also includes 100Hz technology, which means that frames are drawn on the screen at 100Hz rather than the usual 50Hz.
This gives a smoother picture with reduced flicker, which is especially useful for watching high-speed sports and action movies, as well as playing high speed video games.
