Sharp’s first 4K Ultra HD TV, the 70-inch Sharp LC-70UD1U Aquos 4K is now available to purchase in the U.S.
As well as being Sharp’s very first 4K TV, it is also the first 4K TV to be released with the THX 4K certification. It has a list price of $8,999.99, but it is currently on sale on line for just under $5,999.
We first saw Sharp’s 4K TV at CES, where we caught it on camera. At the time it was just a prototype model. Sharp’s original plan was to release a 60-inch TV, but it looks like they decided to to large, and bumped it up to 70-inches.
At 70-inches, it makes the Sharp LC-70UD1U stand out from the increasingly crowded 4K space. It is the only 70-inch 4K TV, with other manufacturers offering either 55-inch or 65-inch models.Read more
