HDTVs this big were once the province of rear-projection sets, or cost $25,000 and up, but Sharp has just released a 70-inch LED-backlit LCD set that isn't cheap, but can fit bigger budgets -- and living rooms.
The Aquos LC-70LE732U is the largest LCD available today, with a viewing area that's 62-percent greater than one on a 55-inch TV. It also features Sharp's Quattron Quad Pixel Technology, which the company says improves color accuracy by adding a yellow pixel to the usual lineup of red, green and blue pixels, and built-in Wi-Fi to access streaming apps from the likes of Netflix and Vudu.
You'll still pay a pretty penny for a screen this massive -- $3,799.99 -- though some buyers do spend that much on an HDTV. Then again, if you want to save some money, but still get a huge screen -- and 3D to boot -- the Samsung 63-inch PN64D550 plasma is running around $2,500 and Panasonic is rolling out the 65-inch TC-P65ST30 3D plasma for $3,299.
