(NEW YORK) — Don’t you just hate not being able to see your TV from half a mile away? Don’t worry. Sharp has your back.
The company has just released what is said to be the world’s largest LED flat screen television. It is four feet tall and 6 feet 8 inches long, with a 90-inch screen measured diagonally. The television, named the Sharp Aquos LC-90LE745U, is as long as NBA star Lebron James is tall.
Despite its size, the TV weighs in at comparatively light 114 pounds, largely because it is only five inches thick.
Consumer Reports has yet to examine the television in depth, but said, “Sharp has definitely take the lead in larger TV screen sizes.” It said the company’s televisions had traditionally done well in past reviews, despite a history of “relatively narrow viewing angles.”
The television is also loaded with extra features. According to Consumer Reports, “The LC-90LE745U is a full-featured, 3D-capable 1080p LCD set that includes an edge LED backlight, 240Hz anti-blur technology, built-in Wi-Fi, and Sharp’s SmartCentral Internet platform with access to apps, YouTube videos, and CinemaNow, Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Vudu streaming movies and TV shows. The LC-90LE745U also has a full Web browser and can make Skype video calls when used with an optional webcam. The TV uses active-3D technology and comes with two sets of active-3D glasses.”
But make sure to check your bank account before lining up to buy this wall-sized set. The Aquos is priced at a whopping $10,999.99.
