The fact that it is Full HD and although you can’t tell much of a difference between a regular HD ready 720p or 1080p on a 32 inch TV, but also considering you may be using it as a computer screen you will see sharper and clearer images. You have fast and easy access to apps like YouTube, Pandora and Netflix with its SmartCentral along with a dual core processor. As a unique feature it has the Wallpaper mode that shows any photos of your choice when you switch off the TV. Being an Energy Star qualified unit it will consume less energy than some of the competitors. Sound is good for a HDTV through its 20W audio as reported by customers but if you’d like to experience something better you can always get a Sharp sound bar that is compatible with the size of your TV (you can purchase the Sharp HT-SB30D 2.0 Channel Sound bar for the 32, 43 and 55 inch TVs). Here you have a very decent all around Smart LED HD TV that you can expect reliable performance from and great visuals- legendary AQUOS picture quality.
