The Sharp big screen stable now consists of several versions of 60” LED/LCD TVs, a 70” behemoth launched last year and now this 80” super screen.
While big screen TVs are not a new development, remember the huge rear projection TV and other even bigger flatscreen designs? , the current Sharp big TVs are paving the way because they are all remarkably affordable.
Could you have imagined a 60” digital flat panel TV going for below RM6,000 just a couple of years ago? Or that the Sharp 70” LED/LCD TV can be had for below RM17,000 ?
These prices realistically suggest that high resolution big screen TVs are no longer the domain of the rich and are now available to the common man.
The new LC-80 LE 940X retail for RM28,999. If you have a fair sized living or home entertainment room and find a two piece front projection system a little too tedious, the LC-80LE 940X would prove to be the ideal big screen candidate. No replacement lamps or room ambient light control to worry about.
According to Sharp the high 1920 x 1080p resolution of its big screen TVs will enable viewers to sit closer then usual for a perfect view.
This means, says Sharp, that even a big screen TV such as its 70” LC-70LE735X, with an optimum viewing distance of only 2.5 metres can quite readily fit into most medium cost Malaysian terrace or condominium homes.
Its 80” LC-80LE940X, with more than double the screen area of a 55” TV would be ideal for slightly more premium accommodations.
Sharp’s family of big screen LED/LCD TVs can be auditioned at the coming KL International AV Show 2012 at Ballroom 2, Lower Level 3, JW Marriott Hotel, July 20 – 22.
