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.Sharp-79-inch-4K There are of course the larger 84 / 85-inch models but these will set you back $20,000 or so. Sharp are quick to point out that at 70-inches it offers 16% more screen size than a 65-inch model would.

Along with the extra 5-inches, the THX4K certification should please home theater enthusiasts, knowing that you will be seeing the image and colors just as the director intended.
