32BC4E from Sharp – Presentation of this HD
A new model from Sharp. They have just decided to enrich their range with a cheaper television , the 32BC4E.
A quick glimpse at the specification sheet : 32 inches.
Small but tough ; hopefully seeing its size , it will perhaps follow you (house move or holidays…). Good opportunities to test its reliability in the long run.
Beside, this television is equipped with a HD resolution. Interesting characteristics. This television which embarks all the Sharp know-how is in the end at a rather reasonable price for the brand
Is it worth buying it ? This is the question we are going to answer.
The design of the Sharp 32BC4E
The first thing we always do is to analyze the design since it is the first thing that is obvious and also because it is important.
Considering the price level the design is good. We perhaps would have liked something more accomplished, but it is, it must be remembered, an entry-level television set.
In the end, we’re on an entry-level product. Even if at this level, when it comes to design, we could simplify it by saying that it is cheap. Materials of poorer quality and ergonomics identical to what was done 5 years ago, make this Sharp 32BC4E a just acceptable television set.
32BC4E from Sharp – The screen
The new Sharp offers an image with disappointing contrasts. It has pale, dark and shallow colours. This translates into completely washed out blacks that do not allow you to enjoy a movie properly in the dark.
With this new 32BC4E Sharp, the company makes an assumed technological choice.
This model has a HD display. With a screen size of 32 inches, this 32BC4E is positioned in the range of small models.In the end, it is interesting to note that beyond the size, the screen is well made. A point to add when choosing between this model and other competitors.
In addition, Sharp has decided to use its mastery of advanced technology on this device, which allows it to benefit from a high quality HD image resolution.
In conclusion on the display, with the 32BC4E Sharp helps you to choose a low-end TV set, which will be perfectly at home in your kitchen.
The sound of the Sharp 32BC4E
The speakers are of average quality and, therefore, the result does not work miracles on this point. Voices, for TV shows, are well reproduced; but for movie or game mode, you may have saturation and distortion in the sound.
The equipment consists of two loudspeakers with 10 W at output.
In conclusion, the sound of this TV will barely play all the sounds. Bad in the high notes and in the low notes. It’s not great; but that’s enough for this range.
Presentation of the Smart TV part of the TV set Sharp 32BC4E
This TV’s Internet access is possible either via Wi-Fi or via a LAN local network and you have the possibility to download a wide variety of applications and movies.
The connection system of the Sharp 32BC4E
Sharp has ignored the number of ports and inputs available for this model. Probably a choice related to its entry-level positioning.
If you have many devices and decide to connect them with this TV, you will have to choose. There are fewer than on competing TV sets.
It is with 6 possible connections that this 32BC4E is presented. The Sharp 32BC4E is at the bottom of its range. Not great compared to its competitors.
You have the following connections at your disposal:
2 USB ports, 3 HDMI ports, 1 headphone socket

32BC4E from Sharp – The conclusion
Finally, this new Sharp 32BC4E is the TV to buy if you are not very careful about the options, or if you are looking for an alternative to troubleshoot.
This TV has the correct resolution, nothing more. Producing and marketing TVs today in HD is often sufficient and well suited for ‘basic’ uses. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. It is therefore a temporary and/or occasional choice. You’ve been warned.
In short, many positive points that make this TV a very good product. The following 3 points should be remembered:
the screen size, the sound power.
