Sharp Australia has released its first LED-backlit LCD television: the LC-40LE700EX. The TV boasts a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio and low power consumption.

The Sharp LC-40LE700EX is a backlit model as opposed to the Samsung Series 6, Series 7 and Series 8 slimline LED televisions, which are edge-lit. Back-lighting offers significant advantages over edge-lighting, with panels able to dim the sheet of LEDs in specific areas of the screen to dramatically boost contrast.

LED televisions consume less power than CCFL-backlit LCD televisions and plasmas. The Sharp LC-40LE700EX has a rated power consumption of 139 Watts, on par with the 140W consumed by the Samsung Series 6. By way of comparison, Samsung’s 42in PS42B450 plasma television consumes 240W while operating.

The Sharp LC-40LE700EX is available now with a retail price of $2999, significantly cheaper than the $3699 price of the Samsung UA40B6000.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
