Solid, sexy bedroom telly that loves Hi-Def Blu-rays, likes a bit of Freeview action and will play along with your console if she really has to. Sharp LC20AD5E is tagged with Sharp LC20AD5E, TV,...

Have an early night and snuggle up with the one you love
No, not her, the other one, with a plug
The closer you get to the L 20A 5E (although you can call her Pusskins), the better she looks
HD-ready video is pin-sharp, colours are warm a
Nice styling
She may be pretty but shes not that deep
Shadows could be richer and the LC 20A 5Es lungs cant carry a tune at higher volumes
And if you want to get picky, an 8ms response time isnt perfect for high-speed gaming
