  • A big screen doesn’t have to mean big bills with an A+ energy rating.

  • At just over 4cm thick it’s exceptionally slim for its size making it easier to put in place and perfect for freeing up more space in your living room.

Sound Bars

With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller - choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Sound bars add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.

Q & As


Sharp Aquos LC50LE651 LED HD 1080p 3D Smart TV, 50 Inch with Freeview HD 3 5 2 2
Love this TV Couldnt be more please with this TV for the price. The picture is perfect. Having 4 HDMI's we have hooked up all our devices and had no problems at all. It really is a good value TV. The only negative is that 3D glasses are not supplied and John Lewis dont sell the ones comapatible with this TV (or they didnt at the time of writing this reveiw) but they are available from other electrical stores. 23 January 2014
Review - sharp 50" TV Its an elegant looking TV, but that's about all positive with this Sharp TV. Experienced the following issues: (1) Powering up, scrolling etc is very slow. Processor speed and/or screen refresh may be the issue. (2) Does not come with an integrated wireless WiFI despite it being a Smart TV. Most people don't have B'band Ethernet LAN connections by their TV points. Sharp charges a further ~£45 for a wifi USB and its TV software don't allow other WiFi 802.11 manufacturers - this was not mentioned in the spec. (3) The YouTube app did not work for me (4) The system software update failed number of times. (5)The program-channel list information is very poor in comparison to Sony, etc. Also scrolling on its basic program list seemed very slow. I'm sure Sharp can resolve most the above issues with relevant software update. Returned mine in the end... John Lewis were excellent again on their customer service and 'no quibbles' approach. 15 November 2013
