Sharp launches Australia's largest LCD TV

The 90-inch LED 3DTV will be available from late this month for the premium price of AU$20,999.

While we wait to see when — or even if — any of the 110-inch TVs shown off at the Consumer Electronics Show 2013 will be made available in Australia, Sharp has jumped in with its LC-90LE740X.

The 90-inch LED LCD panel has smart-TV functionality, with standard Full HD resolution of 1080p. The 3DTV ships with a LAN adaptor and two sets of 3D glasses.

The pricing decision, however, seems unusual. At AU$20,999, the Sharp is AU$5000 more than LG's 84-inch Ultra HDTV. While the extra six inches of screen size may be a draw card for many, LG's "future resistance" of its Ultra HD capacity, as well as the cash savings, seems likely to make the Sharp a hard sell.

paying that sort of money for a 1080p display is crazy talk... but i guess until 2K content becomes common place then you might not be seeing anything better on the screen.

Not sure if I understand what is meant by "LG's "future resistance" of its Ultra HD capacity" ... future resistance, LG??... or is it Sharps future resistance to UHD?

Suddenly, Sony's 84 inch 4K TV doesn't look so expensive.

Why would anyone buy the Sharp at that price?
