Think your TV is badass? Sharp wants you to think again. The Japanese electronics company today introduced what it's calling the largest LED TV in the world: the 90-inch Aquas LED TV.
Just how big is a 90-inch television? Huge: Four feet tall, eight feet wide, and six feet diagonally. And the 1080p set has a price tag to match. If you want one, you'll have to fork over $11,000. Though, if you have space in your crib for a TV that's wider than Kevin Durant is tall, you probably have the dough to cop one.
Peep the press release below.
SHARP® INTRODUCES THE LARGEST TV ON THE PLANET
The Incredible 90” Class Sharp AQUOS® LED TV is Available Now
MAHWAH, NJ (June 19, 2012) - Imagine yourself standing at the precipice of the Grand Canyon. It’s 3,000 feet straight down. The wind howls in your ears. Your heart races as you leap forward and plummet toward the bottom. Just before you plunge into the river below…you spill the popcorn all over the living room couch. That’s the experience you’ll get when watching the breathtaking 90” (diagonal) AQUOS LED TV (model LC-90LE745U), introduced today by Sharp.
Standing majestically at nearly 4 feet tall and spanning 6 feet and 8 inches wide, the 90” AQUOS is the world’s largest LED TV. Its picture quality is as stunning as its size, displaying crisp and clear content at the highest HD resolution available of 1080p. Sit as close as you like, and see colors pop and never before seen details become visible. Sports and action sequences are as big as life.
Despite its size, the TV is thin and light. Weighing only 141 lbs (without stand) and at less than 5 inches deep, it’s easy to mount on a wall. And with LED technology it’s so energy efficient; it uses less energy than two 75-watt light bulbs and averages only $28 per year to operate.
The 90” class AQUOS features Sharp’s proprietary SmartCentral, offering direct access to the most popular apps and video on demand from services like Netflix®, YouTube, CinemaNow®, Hulu Plus and VUDU™. It also has web browsing and Skype* capability and built-in Wi-Fi.**
“Our 90” class LED smart TV offers size, picture quality and smart functionality unlike anything consumers have experienced with LED TVs to-date,” said John Herrington, president, Sharp Electronics Marketing Company of America. “You can now experience Sharp AQUOS like never before.”
Sharp’s new 90” class LED TV is a full HD active 3DTV and two 3D glasses are included. It is also equipped with AquoMotion 240, to make fast-action motions seamless, without blurring – a great feature when watching action movies or sports which feature lots of quick camera movements.
Like all new Wi-Fi enabled Sharp TVs, the LC-90LE745U features AQUOS Advantage LIVE℠ – a free service for owners which connects them directly over the Internet to trained customer support representatives. These advisors can remotely assist with set-up and settings management directly over the Internet and phone, offering an “in-home” technician to help problem solve any question or issue.
The LC-90LE745U is available now at select retailers for a suggested retail price of $10,999.99 (US).\
