Is it the Largest TV on the Planet?

It’s about the 90″ (diagonal) AQUOS LED TV (model LC-90LE745U) introduced Tuesday by Sharp. Standing at nearly 4 feet tall and spanning 6 feet and 8 inches wide, the 90″ AQUOS is claimed to be the world’s largest LED TV.

Its picture quality, says the company, is as stunning as its size, displaying crisp and clear content at the highest HD resolution available of 1080p.

Despite its size, the TV is thin and light. Weighing only 141 lbs (without stand) and at less than 5 inches deep, it’s easy to mount on a wall. And with LED technology it’s so energy efficient; it uses less energy than two 75-watt light bulbs and averages only $28 per year to operate, says the company.

The 90″ class AQUOS features Sharp’s proprietary SmartCentral, offering direct access to the most popular apps and video on demand from services like Netflix, YouTube, CinemaNow, Hulu Plus and VUDU. It also has web browsing and Skype capability and built-in Wi-Fi.

“Our 90″ class LED smart TV offers size, picture quality and smart functionality unlike anything consumers have experienced with LED TVs to-date,” said John Herrington, president, Sharp Electronics Marketing Company of America. “You can now experience Sharp AQUOS like never before.”

Sharp’s new 90″ class LED TV is a full HD active 3DTV and two 3D glasses are included. It is also equipped with AquoMotion 240, to make fast-action motions seamless, without blurring – a feature when watching action movies or sports which feature lots of quick camera movements.

Like all new Wi-Fi enabled Sharp TVs, the LC-90LE745U features AQUOS Advantage LIVE – a free service for owners which connects them directly over the Internet to trained customer support representatives.

These advisors can remotely assist with set-up and settings management directly over the Internet and phone, offering an “in-home” technician to help the buyers.

The LC-90LE745U is available at select retailers for a suggested retail price of $10,999.99 (US).

Sharp Electronics Corporation is the U.S. subsidiary of Japan’s Sharp Corporation, a worldwide developer of home entertainment products, appliances, networked multifunctional office solutions, solar energy solutions, LED lighting and mobile communication and information tools.
