Of course, that means it also comes with one of the world's largest TV price tags -- $10,999.99. (Believe it or not, there are projectors and other specialty big-screen sets priced even more.)
But you certainly get a lot for your $11,000. The Sharp 90-inch LED TV is 4 feet tall, 6'8" wide, five inches deep and 141 pounds. It comes with 1080p video as well as 3D (two pairs of 3D glasses); Sharp's Smart TV service which includes Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus; web browsing; Skype capability; built-in Wi-Fi and something called AquoMotion 240, which purports to enhance fast-motion on screen.
While it's unclear how many $11,000 sets Sharp will sell, the company is continuing its quest to become known as the big-screen TV maker. It also sells several models in the 70-inch plus and 80-inch plus categories. The publicity Sharp should gain from launching the 90-inch LED should help generate more interest in its entire big-screen catalog.
Sharp says the 90-inch set is now available at select retailers. For more information, go to SharpUSA.com.
