Sharp LC-40CFF5221K 40-Inch Widescreen 1080p Full HD LED TV – for the money this is a very nice piece of kit


Brilliant crystal clear picture, good sound quality. The remote control is very intuitive. It has 3 hdmi ports, 3 usb ports, an optical sound port, scart socket and various conversion leads for soundbar/sound system. In fact, the box contains every imaginable cable you may prefer to use, including an hdmi cable. The ports are all positioned so that they do not protrude from the back. There are brackets for fixing to the wall and 2 legs if you prefer to stand the tv on a unit or cabinet. I found it extremely easy to set up and was watching within minutes. It connected to the internet immediately with no issues. I had to send a sony bravia tv back due to connectivity issues.

Very good price/quality ratio. Good image quality and design.

Everything you want in a tv. This one looks nice , changes channel quickly and doesn’t have a shadow. I have bought sharp products before, they are a trusted make and would buy sharp again.

Bought for my sister when her tv broke and it was just a kind gesture so bought a cheap tv but i was amazed at what you get for your money with this tv.

Good picture and features, had to send my first delivery back there was something wrong with the sound. Replacement is much better but should have paid a bit more for a better quality tv.

At last a new telly with good quality sound. I was reluctant to replace our old analogue aquos, which we used with a set top box/pvr, as it had front facing speakers built in with good quality sound and i didn’t want to have to buy a separate sound bar to achieve similar quality. Thanks to other reviewers who said you didn’t need one with this, i bought one and they were right.

  • Fantastic TV. Great picture, great sound and many features.
  • light and a Clear full HD picture with a good sound base
  • Doesn’t find the wifi as easy as the wii we use with it for netflix

Remote control is a different matter. ‘source’ button doesn’t work at all meaning have to manually change between hdmi ports. ‘ok’ button barely registers meaning everything else is a struggle getting to register. ‘sleep’ button might as well not be there either.

Good picture and all the functions you need great value for money.

Functional tv and good value for the price, nothing outstanding about it.

Bought two, one has stopped working after 11 months, will wait to see what amazon will do with guarantee.

For the money this is a very nice piece of kit, light weight and slimline, the sound quality is very good and the picture quality also good, i cant fault this tv for the money i paid for it.

Make sure this fits

Good value for money, but the smart tv interface lacks some of the functionality you’d expect. Can’t get itv player, for example, which is a pain if you’re trying to run everything off your broadband.

The tv looks great however after about a 3 week use i noticed backlight (was there from start) a pixel that wasn’t working and the tv is very slow to start up. One night i wasn’t able to watch netflix as the tv was taking way too long to start up and kept losing wifi connection it does however look great and has good quality once up and running.

Excellent quality for price, couldn’t find a better deal anywhere.

Large screen tv with an excellent crystal clear picture at a very reasonable cost.

It really is a good tv, i’ve had mine set up now for a couple of weeks looks good sounds good.

Great tv, stacks of features, good image quality. Didn’t go for a sound bar and built-in speakers are ok in our set-up.

Built-in Freeview HD –

Well designed, light and a clear full hd picture with a good sound base. It has 3 hdmi ports, ariel and scart socket. The remote control is well designed and simple to use. Just be aware when purchasing this tv there are two versions ,the smart version and the basic version.

Great design, but it looks blurry from the side and in sunlight.

Really good quality and price very pleased.

Stylish looking tv – easy to assemble and connect up and a good picture.

I bought the tv on sale, for the price a paid its incredible good.

3 HDMI ports to connect an array of devices such as a Blu-Ray player

Doesn’t find the wifi as easy as the wii we use with it for netflix etc, no app for amazon video either, but otherwise very easy to set up, good picture quality, after jiggling decent sound quality, not amazing but good enough.

The image quality is good and the sound quality is good. The most critical point is very simple operation. When i install it, i only need one button to complete the hdmi signal source switching.

Good balance in image, sound and size.

Brilliant so far and sound an improvement on my tecknika whose screen went blank.

Works well, straight out of the box. Good size screen for failing eyesight.

Im satisfied with this product :)hooked up my ps3 & my hard drive without any problems.

Just what i needed ad it has a scart option inlike most of the newer machines for an older dvd writer and vhs player.

Built-in Harmon Kardon audio system

    Well you know what they say about appearances, certainly applies here. Only had it a few days and already have an issue with picture quality which is a hardware issue and having to arrange repair. Sound is no match for my attached soundbar, without soundbar its poor. Remote control works but its rf not ir which means no other controller will operate it, so if you have sky and want to use your sky remote to control the tv, you can’t. It may have the brand of sharp but they no longer make tv’s, haven’t done for a while, so the support is offered by umc. So not all that impressed, will see how the repair and support go, if not satisfied will be returning for refund and i’ll pay the extra for a decent branded tv. My advise don’t buy this do the research first, which i failed to do.

    I had been loyal to samsung for a number of years but i bought this tv because it was a good price and i had very good experience with a previous sharp aquos tv which lasted over 10 years with no problems. 13 weeks to the day from taking delivery the screen went haywire followed by blue screen of death and a no signal message. Getting the item fixed was not an easy issue because sharp were only interested in a repair even though it was virtually brand new. Somehow the tech guy i spoke to got it in his head the problem was a defective remote and insisted in sending me a replacement to use to reinitialise the tv regardless of the way the tv had gone wrong in the first place. A phone call followed to amazon customer service who agreed it was ok to return the tv to them for a full refund. A new samsung was immediately ordered as a replacement.

      Umc appear to be unable to repair any tv, and if i had known they were the origin of this product, wouldn’t have touched it with a barge pole. Amazon, hold your head in shame, you are not looking out for your customers.

    Had the tv for a year and a half and then it stopped powering up. Happy with the product when it works. I’d expect a tv to have a longer life span hence the rating.

        I bought sharp as they have always been great products. Unfortunately on this occasion the tv didn’t perform as expected. The tv arrived well packaged but once plugged in lines ofgreen pixels drifted across the screen in waves. Amazon replaced it very quickly and when plugged in the new one was great. Fabulous picture and sound quality but, within a couple of weeks the same problem began to appear. Lost any faith in the product any amazon offered a refund.
