Sharp 40BG2E : the new Full HD
Sharp is now an important television manufacturer, and proposes this basic model 40BG2E, a possible choice tested by our Laboratory.
In its 40 inches model , this television offers a definition dedicated to the pictures treatment.
We are dealing with a rather small screen, which is quite unusual with this television maker.
This television is delivered with a Full HD resolution. The television set is an entry-level product; it therefore faces competitors with similar resolution screen.
If you are considering buying the Sharp 40BG2E, read on to see if it is really worth it.
40BG2E from Sharp – Design
With its design identical in every respect to the competition, this Sharp 40BG2E could have difficulty distinguishing itself in a tense entry-level market.
Who said that entry-level products could not benefit from quality design? That’s the thought we can face each other with this TV set. That nothing is impossible for Sharp.
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 40BG2E a just acceptable television set.
TV screen presentation Sharp 40BG2E
Even for an entry-level model, this new Sharp has a quality image, well calibrated and a very good native contrast.
Sharp remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it.
The Sharp television set displays a Full HD resolution. This resolution is clearly better than what is generally done.
And with his 40 inches, he’s in a series of TVs that is at the bottom of its range.Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
Finally, Sharp has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an Full HD image quality .
To conclude the display part, we could say that it is average; but what more could be asked of a low-end device.
40BG2E from Sharp – The sound
For those who are not too demanding in terms of quality or sound rendering, this model is interesting. Indeed, the audio system is a little short. Which is normal for this entry-level device.
The television set is equipped with two speakers and a power output of 10 W.
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.

With its Wifi or network connection (local LAN), this TV gives you the possibility to download apps or movies directly. An interesting option in the age of the cloud and online games.

It is with 6 possible connections that this 40BG2E is presented. Apart from a few devices, you will not be able to connect many elements. Low choice compared to the competition.

2 USB ports, 3 HDMI ports, 1 headphone socket
