Sharp's new HDTVs are 70-inches big

Sharp is going to go big or go home with its new line of Aquos Quattron HDTVs.

Sharp is thinking big with its newest round of HDTVs, led by a whopping 70-inch LED back-lit HDTV.

The 70-inch LC-70LE732U boasts a 120hz refresh rate, 1080p Full HD resolution, and a full-array LED matrix to keep your image nice and bright. Due out in May, the LC-70LE732U also features Sharp's high-end Internet-connected TV features, which use built-in Wi-Fi to access Facebook, Pandora, Twitter, and Flickr, as well as Netflix, VUDU, and CinemaNow for your video-streaming needs. Finally, there's an IP Control feature which lets a PC control basic TV functions, lighting, and AV equipment over your wireless or wired network, though not many details were available at the present.

Sharp is also releasing a series of LED edge-lit displays, the LE835 and LE830 line, which are due out in February and March, respectively. Both lines come in 40-inch, 46-inch, 52-inch, and 60-inch models.

The higher-end LE835 features a 240hz refresh rate, Sharp's patented Quad Pixel Plus technology (which claims to improve the resolution), and 3D TV support by way of active-shutter glasses. The LE830, meanwhile doesn't support 3D, include the Quad Pixel Plus tech, or have a 240hz refresh rate, though further specs weren't available at press time.

Both the LE835 and LE830 line have built-in Wi-Fi and Internet-connected features, but unlike the LC-70LE732U, they only have access to Netflix, VUDU, and CinemaNow.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
