TV manufacturers are virtually contesting every inch of screen size and when most gadgets are shrinking – in keeping with the dominant small-is-beautiful spirit of our times, TV manufacturers are spending millions on adding extra inches to LCDs and Plasmas. Now Sharp has unveiled the largest LCD TV in the world, a 108” behemoth.
The Sharp LB-1085 108” LCD is now on sale across Europe, and an outrageous sum of $185,000 and a ridiculous 16 weeks of delivery time is all that separates European consumers from it.
It is certainly not the TV you can move around your house at will as it weighs a staggering 430 pounds. It features Full HD, 400 CD brightness, 1200:1 contrast ratio and 6 ms response time. Its U.S launch is slated for September.
