Sharp introduces three of the thinnest LCD HDTVs

Sharp introduces three of the thinnest LCD HDTVs Bolstering three new LCD televisions to its Aquos X line, Sharp has announced its thin 3.44cm (at the thinnest part) architecture. Loaded with many features HDTV lovers want in their sets, these new sets come in 46-inch, 42-inch and 37-inch displays.
These televisions are being marketed for people who desire to hang their television on the wall as they would a painting and not be put off by the thickness of current television sets. The X Series also adopts a discrete component configuration that separates the display section from the tuner section. Users can connect the display section simply and easily via a single cable. Housing the tuner as a separate component also eliminates the time and effort involved in turning the back of the display section to make connections with the antenna cable or peripheral equipment.

Features include
  • Industry's thinnest Profile at 3.44cm
  • TV contrast of 15,000:1 and 12-bit BDE color value rendering
  • double-speed (120-Hz Frame rate conversion) full-HD LCD technology
  • Thin-profile 3-way 8-speaker system and 1-Bit digital amplifier
  • All models are compatible with AQUOS Familink that enables operation of a connected AQUOS Blu-ray Disc Player simply and easily

you havent seen thinner dood ...why do people make up stuff.

it says right there as ill paste it again for YOU to see

Features include
Industry's thinnest Profile at 3.44cm

go measure 3.44cm ..there is none thinner especially at 65 inches.

Also ..you havent seen better ...because they have not been released yet to the public... and will not be released until february 8th ..and these are the absolute best the industry has to offer ...so don't try and justify your preference for another branded tv on lies ..or even try to convince others with your lies. thanks

Sharp idea separate tuner and use the panel only as a display.

Ha LCD Tv's is old technology given to you in a new package. If you have a laptop what do you think the screen is?????!!!! So think back, how long has laptops been around?????? I had a flat screen tv in 1997! How?
took a pentium 2 laptop screen wired the video cables up to a reciever, and played dvds YEARS AGO!!!! everyone was amazed. The resolution is better sure, but flat screen aren't really anything new.

The comment was directed at the ability to get around the tuner that was forced on the 'T.V.' manufacturers.You can Google that sad tale.Many of us are paying for tuners we don't want.The Tuners should be an option.

I would have to agree however it will be awhile before we actually see this from happening. I would love to get one but i have a feeling this would be out of my price range.
