Sharp has announced the release date and price for its largest ever LCD TV, the 90-inch LC-90LE740X.

Throughout most of 2012, Sharp was the go-to company for plus-size LCD screens. The company secured the size crown when it first released the 70-inch LE735X in May, then followed with a premium 80-inch LE940X in late August.

Sony and LG had a temporary, combined victory with the announcement and eventual release of their respective Ultra HD 84-inch LED TVs in December, but Sharp retains the trophy with this latest release — at least until Samsung debuts its 110-inch F9000 Ultra HD LED TV locally.

The LC-90LE740X TV uses a Full HD 1080p, rather than Ultra HD, full-LED-backlit LCD screen, and has a native 200Hz refresh rate. 3D support is built-in and two sets of 3D glasses are bundled with the television, along with a Wi-Fi network adapter. The LCD panel for the extra-large 90-inch television is made at Sharp’s Japanese production plants, in Kameyama and Sakai.

The Sharp LC-90LE740X will be available in late January, for the surprisingly reasonable price of $20,999 — that’s $4000 more expensive than LG’s 84-inch UHD TV, but $4000 less than Sony’s.

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.
