While we usually like to spread reviews of TVs from the same brand out a bit, there are times when it makes sense to put two close together. And today is one of those times, as we follow up our review of Sharp’s LC-32LE210E earlier this week with a review of the same brand’s 32DH510E.


The reasons for doing this are really pretty obvious, for both are 32in TVs featuring budget price tags. The most immediate difference being that while the slightly dearer 32LE210E uses edge LED lighting, the 32DH510E adopts the more standard CCFL lighting route.


Will the 32DH510E improve on the slightly lacklustre performance of the 32LE210E? Or will it at least look better value given that it’s nearly £80 cheaper than its LED alternative?


If aesthetics are important to you, then the 32DH510E falls clearly short of its edge LED sibling. It’s chunkier across the bezel and around the back, and generally looks less stylish, with a more traditional shape and simple black finish.


It also comes up short with its connections. For it only has two HDMIs versus the 32LE210E’s three, and doesn’t have a D-Sub PC port while the 32LE210E does. These are both quite serious issues potentially – especially the lack of an analogue PC port, since we know for a fact (and from personal experience) that 32in TVs regularly do double duty for many people as impromptu study or bedroom computer monitors.


Already it’s not looking great for the 32DH510E. But we’re not done with the negative comparisons yet, for the CCFL LCD model only manages an HD Ready 1366×768 resolution versus the edge LED model’s full HD resolution. While unfortunate, though, this need not necessarily be a massive problem at the relatively small 32in screen level, where small differences in HD resolution aren’t always blindingly obvious.


There are three areas where the 32DH510E matches the 32LE210E, though – two good and one bad. The first good one finds it sporting the same attractive, well organised onscreen menus as the 32LE210E. The second good one is a USB port able to play video, music and photo files, or record programmes from the digital tuner.
