Sharp Limited Edition

LCD TVs that incorporate LED backlighting with local dimming are a pretty big theme at the show, and Sharp has thrown its hat into that ring with the Limited Edition series. Even more impressive, the 52- and 65-inch sets are also ultra thin, measuring a mere 1 inch thick in the main portion of the screen (the central region is a bit thicker). They use red, green, and blue LEDs instead of white, and Sharp claims a color gamut 150% of NTSC. The colors were striking and almost too intense, especially red. They should be available in October, but pricing is TBD.
