The Sharp 40BF2E : what is this entry-level worth ?

What about the new Sharp 40BF2E ?

Today we are going to analyse the Sharp 40BF2E, a basic model from Sharp. A deeper analysis in order to check what this model is really worth.
Let’s have a look at the size. It’s a 40 inches.
We are dealing with a rather small screen, which is quite unusual with this television maker.
Concerning technology, it is worth noting that this model is delivered with a Full 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
So when you make your choice, you will ask yourself the question : is the 40BF2E a good bargain ? You will be told in this article.

The design of the Sharp 40BF2E

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.
Could do better. This could be the overall opinion about this television set. However, it is not necessary to criticize too much; remember the price at which it is offered for sale!
In conclusion, even if design is important, it is not on this point that we judge the 40BF2E. You can put it in your living room ,it will not look out of place.

40BF2E 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 model, Sharp confirms one of its technological choices. 
The Sharp television set displays a Full HD resolution. Which is already above the average resolution of the range.
In addition, with a screen of 40 inches, the 40BF2E is at the bottom of its range.Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
Even better, thanks to its advanced technology, the screen of this television provides a Full HD quality resolution.
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s cheap; with the price that goes with it.

40BF2E from Sharp – The sound

In general, the sounds are well reproduced; but you have to forget about bass and low-midrange. It will be preferable to use an external system to enjoy better audio immersion.
In terms of sound equipment, the TV is equipped with two baffles 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.

40BF2E from Sharp – Embedded intelligence

You will also be able to access the Internet, either through your Wi-Fi connection, or for the most geek among you via the LAN; you will then be able to download a whole bunch of applications and movies.

The connection system of the Sharp 40BF2E

Due to its small number of connectors, it will penalize some users.
Thanks to its above-average number of connections, this TV is very generous.

It is with 12 possible connections that this 40BF2E is presented. The Sharp 40BF2E is probably the best choice today. Most homes are now equipped with a box, a game console, a multimedia server, and other devices, in addition to the simple DVD player.
In detail here are the available connections:
2 USB ports, 3 HDMI ports, 1 headphone socket, 5 antenna inputs, 1 component plug (Video)

Our conclusion on the Sharp 40BF2E

With the intention of making a difference this new 40BF2E Sharp intends to make a difference. Well thought out and well finished. This mid-range is a wise choice.
However, it is not the resolution that we expect from this television set. Indeed, the big advantage will be found in a very competitive price. Here, you will have a TV that displays all your video sources correctly and allows you to enjoy a very well defined picture in all circumstances.

From this new Sharp we can retain 3 positive points:
the screen size, the sound power.
