Sharp’s new AQUOS lineup eyes-on


I imagine these pictures don’t do these sets any justice, but the specs are pretty impressive nonetheless. I’ll need to work my contacts and see if I can get into these kind of events in the future.



the LEDs aren’t locally dimmed, the 120Hz refresh rate falls short of the 240Hz that’s been bandied about of late, and the internet services don’t offer video playback or WiFi connectivity. That said, the picture is looking pretty great. Sharp credits its specialized LEDs for increasing the color gamut, and new LCD tech for improved blacks and improved brightness due to better controls and less electronics getting in the way. As for 120Hz, Sharp says that its engineers found that 240Hz introduced noise, and on a personal note we don’t think we need many more Hz in our lives.
