Sharp has introduced the Aquos Quattron LC-80LE632U, a huge 80-inch TV that’s being tagged as the ‘largest commercially-available LED TV’, which would be perfect for fitting into ‘the world’s emptiest living room wall.’ The TV sports an LED-lit, 1080p LCD TV panel and Wi-fi connectivity, giving you access to Netflix, CinemaNow and Vudu straight out of the predictably huge box it ships in.
Besides the really large screen, what else is there to expect from a screen that stretches (diagonally) to 6.5 feet? More of the usual, really. The LC-80LE632U is listed to offer a 6,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and a 120Hz screen for handling smooth action… smoothly, as well as a pair of USB ports for playing media straight from a flash drive. Basically nothing much more than what you’d get from a high-end 55-incher, but you have to realize that you’re getting a screen area that’s more than double the screen real estate of an already-huge 55-inch display.
It also supports Sharp’s Aquos Advantage Live feature, which will let you connect, set up, and tune the TV remotely via the internet.
The Sharp LC-80LE632U goes on sale in October for $5,500.
