Lol a 80 inch tv would be the size of one of my walls.....
The 60" model got a 4 star review on tech radar, £1300. Good value for a budget model.
I paid £1000 for a 46" Sharp Aquos a couple years back - the 50" was either £1600 or £1800 i forget which - basically the difference in price would've bought a decent 37" at the time for the bedroom.

Was a great tv - only problem with it was the ccfl backlight - due to the size it was made up of more than one panel and unfortunately they didn't age the same so there was a marked demarcation line between the two panels - almost invisible until someone pointed it out to you and then impossible to ignore. This being LED (presumably not edge either) then this shouldn't be an issue.

Not sure what the 1920x1080x 4 means? 4 panles to make the screen? That would have issues in itself - plus afaik there making panels bigger than this anyway, they just get cut to req sizes and the bigger panels they can produce the more efficient the manufacturing process is.
I was tempted by a 64" samsung at this price before I bought a 1080p projector, so this looks like a good deal to me. The 64" looked massive when I saw it in Comet, totally blew away the 60" sets next to it which just didn't have the same "wow" factor

Sharp is not a budget model. I think its reputed enough in Japan and US

RGB and Y basically, trying to make it sound smarter than it is, though the extra yellow pixel is quite cool. Or warm.

Ahh - ty
oO gonna need to watch alot of tv at 2.4k to get some value
Sharp have invented and developed some of the best electronics in the market over the years - just their budget stuff these days is just remadged Vestel, but this is top notch.
rejector1

hmmmm... tempting i need a new tv for the bedroom



70 inch for the bedroom? you must still live with your mom
This gonna look well tidy in the caravan, bloke on next pitch will be well jealous!!

the LCnnLE8nnn series are the top of the range
fooooooooookinnggg heeeeeeelllllllllll


goddamiittt


you'd need to charge an entrance fee to help pay for the huge electric bill
Even if it was Quattron, that's just marketing bull. How can content created in 3 colours look better on a display with 4? If anyone is interested, just Google Quattron and you'll have your eyes opened.
It sounds ideal for a 10 foot square chav living room.
Gonna wait for the 90 inch

Content isn't created in 3 colours, RGB TVs just use red/green/blue sub pixels to recreate the original mult colour image. Unfortunately few TVs can recreate the colour gamuts used by broadcast content (rec. 709 for example). I assume the yellow pixel is added in order to expand the panels ability to display the yellow part of the spectrum.

I don't know how well it works however, as I lost interest in sharp sets when they deemed us unworthy of their best sets a few years ago

Quattron technology didn't score well on both CNet and AVForums in their reviews.

I was over simplifying to better get my point across.

I'm still amazed companies like Sharp have the audacity to advertise something that is so blatantly full of crap and go even further by hiring George Takei to don a white lab coat in order to give their TV ads some sense of credibility.

Anyway, Sharp do make some excellent LCD TVs, it's just a pity the only good ones I've come across are few and far between.
HOLY MAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nice, this is getting ever closer to a decent sized TV.
The top of the range 8 series (LC70LE836E) is available for £2849 from Sharp Direct (if you have an Affinity account and use the additional 5% off code)...

I looked at getting an Aquos about two years ago. I fell in love with a 50/52". I looked so nice in the shop. I plumped for a Sammy Plasma instead.

Does anyone know if this is this years model? As 100hz on an Led isn't exactly ground breaking. I know the newer Panasonic's and Samsungs Led's are pushing 400hz plus.

It'll be half that in 6 months!




what? 35 inch?
muckilla

you just know its gunna drop alot afew months after release



I still want one now oO

No, they are not. They have developed a fancy formula (I would guess it is 4*x, but it is secret!), that turns a refresh rate of 100 Hz into a "motion clarity indicator" or something of 400.

I think there are the first sets with a 200 Hz fresh rate, but 400 Hz is not happening any time soon. There is not much point either, because there is very much a diminishing return.

Quite agree, the ideal refresh rate to push to would be 240Hz anyway given it'd satisfy multiples of 24 f/ps and 60 f/ps content. After that I can't see much visual benefit pushing any further for the foreseeable, for 2D stuff anyway.
awesome!!
beaware, 8k pixels tv are on the corner already

Nothing short of awesome, but with the divorce that would follow, it just makes it too expensive for me. Would love to buy though.
