Sharp's New HDTVs are 70-inches Big
Sharp is thinking big with its newest round of HDTVs, led by a whopping 70-inch LED back-lit HDTV.
The 70-inch LC-70LE732U boasts a 120hz refresh rate, 1080p Full HD resolution, and a full-array LED matrix to keep your image nice and bright. Due out in May, the LC-70LE732U also features Sharp's high-end Internet-connected TV features, which use built-in Wi-Fi to access Facebook, Pandora, Twitter, and Flickr, as well as Netflix, VUDU, and CinemaNow for your video-streaming needs. Finally, there's an IP Control feature which lets a PC control basic TV functions, lighting, and AV equipment over your wireless or wired network, though not many details were available at the present.
Sharp is also releasing a series of LED edge-lit displays, the LE835 and LE830 line, which are due out in February and March, respectively. Both lines come in 40-inch, 46-inch, 52-inch, and 60-inch models.
The higher-end LE835 features a 240hz refresh rate, Sharp's patented Quad Pixel Plus technology (which claims to improve the resolution), and 3D TV support by way of active-shutter glasses. The LE830, meanwhile doesn't support 3D, include the Quad Pixel Plus tech, or have a 240hz refresh rate, though further specs weren't available at press time.
Both the LE835 and LE830 line have built-in Wi-Fi and Internet-connected features, but unlike the LC-70LE732U, they only have access to Netflix, VUDU, and CinemaNow.
