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.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

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

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

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.
