The Japanese consumer electronics company, Sharp has just broke the consumer LED LCD HDTV size and price barrier with the New York City debut of its 90-inch set.
This how they introduce their 90-inch monster
“Imagine yourself standing at the precipice of the Grand Canyon,” it reads. “It’s 3,000 feet straight down. The wind howls in your ears. Your heart races as you leap forward and plummet toward the bottom. Just before you plunge into the river below … you spill the popcorn all over the living room couch.
That’s the experience you’ll get when watching the breathtaking 90-inch (diagonal) AQUOS LED TV (model LC-90LE745U)”
The new Aquos LED TV -LC-90LE745U, unveiled Tuesday, stands 4 feet tall and is 6 feet, 8 inches across.
The LC-90LE745U is a highly featured television with Full HD 1920 x1080 resolution, Smart TV with movie and TV content from Netflix, CinemaNow, Hulu Plus and Vudu. It is also 3-D capable and includes two pair of active 3-D glasses.

The LC-90LE745U produced a bright, vivid image and has the anti-glare screen. It uses a full array of 500 LEDs to backlight the screen, which lets each LED darken to improve the black level of the scene.
The LC-90LE745U weighs in without included table stand at 142 lbs. It uses an aluminum screen bezel similar to the ones found in its Elite TV line-up. The depth comes in at about 5 inches.
Power consumption is rated at 138 watts, making it ineligible for the Energy Star certification, which has an arbitrary top of 108 watts. A Sharp executive noted the cost of operation is just $28 a year based upon the Energy Star usage criteria.
