Sharp LC40L650X LCD TV (preview)

Sharp's new mid-sized LCD television has a 40in screen with a 50,000:1 contrast ratio

The Sharp LC40L650X is a 40in LCD television with a 50,000:1 contrast ratio and 100Hz motion processing. It's a Full HD 1080p panel and has a USB port for directly playing back media files. Its $1199 price tag is on par with similar products from competitors.

Like the Sharp LC52LE820X and Sharp LC60LE925X LED televisions, the Sharp LC40L650X has clean and simple styling. The inclusion of three HDMI ports is surprising, given that almost all other televisions on the market have four.

Since it uses a CCFL LCD backlight instead of the efficient edge LED lighting of screens like the Kogan Elite LED32, the Sharp LC40L650X has unspectacular power consumption figures. It consumes an average of 174 Watts during operation, according to Sharp.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
