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.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
