Now that's a TV!

Ahhh, just a few short divorces ago and I might have been making a call to Abt...

http://www.gadgetbox.msnbc.msn.com/t...-inches-835758

Sharp, the maker of LCD panels, copiers, microwaves and other consumer electronics products, just broke the consumer HDTV size and price barrier with the New York City debut of its 90-inch HDTV. This giant TV beats all of its competition, which currently top out at just 65 inches. Its also the most expensive, with a retail price of $10,999.99.

The LC-90LE745U is a highly featured television with Full HD 1920 x1080 resolution, Smart TV with movie and TV content from Netflix, CinemaNow, Hulu Plus and Vudu. It is also 3-D capable and includes two pair of active 3-D glasses.

How it looked
The LC-90LE745U produced a bright, vivid image. The anti-glare screen is the same found in the LC-80LE645 we reviewed here. Like a number of other Sharp Aquos LED TVs, this 90-incher (diagonally measured) uses a yellow sub-pixel in addition to the normal red, blue and green ones found on all other HDTVs.

The LC-90LE745U weighs in without included table stand at 142 lbs. It uses an aluminum screen bezel similar to the ones found in its Elite TV line-up. The depth comes in at about 5 inches.

Power consumption is rated at 138 watts, making it ineligible for the Energy Star certification, which has an arbitrary top of 108 watts. A Sharp executive noted the cost of operation is just $28 a year based upon the Energy Star usage criteria. This HDTV is backlit with 500 white LEDs.

Where it's sold
Sharp is limiting sales to brick-and-mortar stores including Best Buys Magnolia, PC Richard, Abt Electronics and HH Gregg, and is shipping now.

In about 5 years, that 90" LCD might become affordable.

I remember when 55" Plasma TVs were $15k+

Andy lost that well before he proposed. Have you seen his RAV-4?

I know someone who has the 80" Sharp. Pretty impressive. So fuckin big though that you need a serious size room to make it work. I am a plasma guy but Sharp makes the best looking LCD in my opinion. While other makers use 3 colors RGB Sharp adds a forth- Yellow. Makes a difference.

Meh, Panasonic has been selling a 103" industrial HDTV for several years now. Sure, it's $50K, but if size matters, then price is no object. We have put several of them in stadiums for digital signage displays.

You're assuming too much. I have a 10' diagonal screen, I don't have to sway my head back and forth because the screen and resolution are appropriate for my viewing distance. The height is also set properly for comfort.

Bruce what is so interesting that you actually want to sit down and watch it? I don't even want to sit and watch MotoGP anymore. I'm a "highlight" watcher and most of that is done on the treadmill. Save your money for the good quality toys: guns, knives, bikes and women Got a Roku for Diane, I was bored with it within 3 days, now she happily goes off and I can amuse myself reloading

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.
