Sharp $13,000 70" 4K TV Hits Oz

By Oonagh Reidy | Monday | 25/11/2013

Sharp world first THX certified 4K 2K Ultra HD LCD TV has landed.

Sharp's 70" LCD TV has Real Ultra High Definition (3840 x 2160) TV Panel with a built in converter to upscale from Full HD to 4K Ultra HD, handy since there's a dearth of 4K content at the moment. 

Ultra High Def TV or '4K' as it is known, has four times the resolution of a full HD TV. 

THX has only recently began certifying 4K HDTVs, and the Sharp TV has gone though 400 rigorous performance tests. It is the only 4K TV to get the THX nod. 

The TV has a high quality Japanese-made panel, Edge LED backlighting and AquoMotion UHD - this reduces motion blur and delivers crystal-clear images during motion scenes. 

It also has 3D and 2D surround sound, Sharp's Duo BASS technology - incorporating two subwoofers into a sleek, streamlined front bezel. 

The Internet ready TV has a Flash-enabled Web browser and a USB-REC function, and it directly records from digital broadcast plus replays content via a USB HDD. 

The 70" set measures 1578 x 950 x 114 mm without a stand and weighs 47.5kg without a stand.

But its not cheap at RRP$12,999, available through specialist channels from early December. 

A Panasonic 65" 4K TV with upscaler costs a lot less at $7,699, and 4K TV prices are continuing to drop. 

"We are proud to be a step ahead of the global market, and thrilled that Sharp's LC-70UD1X will be the first 4K model on the market to pass THX certification" says Mark Beard, National Marketing Manager for Sharp.

The Sharp LC-70UD1X comes with two sets of 3D glasses and a wireless LAN Adaptor.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
