Before CES 2012 kicked off, Sharp announced the largest family member of the Sharp 8-Series AQUOS Quattron 3D LED TVs, the huge 80-inch Sharp LC-80LE844U. This gained a lot of attention as it was proclaimed to be the world’s largest 3D HDTV.
But there are two other members to the 8-Series Aquos, the still very large, 60-inch Sharp LC-60LE847U, and the 70-inch Sharp LC-70LE847U.
The new 2012 series-8 models are highend models from Sharp, and sit just one notch down from their flagship series-9 models.
Both models feature a new ultra slim bezel with an attractive black brushed aluminum finish. They are also very thin thanks to their LED edge lighting technology.
unlike some other 3D HDTVs both the LC-60LE847U and the LC-70LE847U feature full HD Active 3D, powered by Quattron technology with Quad Pixel Plus 2, which also brings finer details and more vivid colors. Both feature a 240Hz Aquos panel.
The LC-60LE847U has a MSRP of $2,699, while the LC-70LE847U $3,799.99, and a release date of early April.
