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.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
