Sharp Intros 80-inch TV
Maintaining its commitment to be the leader in large-screen TVs, Sharp Tuesday rolled out its new 80-inch Aquos full-array LED LCD TV (LC-80LE632U). The set has an MSRP of $5,499 and should begin shipping to retailers within a week.
Sharp also announced a 70-inch set (LC-70LE632U, MSRJP $3,299)) that shares the same features as the 80 inch.
The new sets are full HD 1080p smart TVs and include built-in WiFi and access to such apps as Netflix, CinemaNow, Vudu and the Aquos Advantage LIVE online support. With a dynamic ratio of 6,000,000:1, the sets also feature 120Hz Fine Motion Enhanced to help eliminate blur and motion artifacts. The 80-inch set weighs 130 pounds and can use a standard wall mount. The set uses about $22 in energy a year, according to Sharp.
