Sharp launches line of LED-backlit HDTVs Sharp has announced the launch of a line of LED-backlit LCD HDTVs this week.
The AQUOS branded TVs will range in size from 32" to 52" and will be very similar to the popular 1080p LCD TVs already offered by the company but instead using Sharp's UltraBrilliant LED-backlight technology.

"With the introduction of the AQUOS LED series," adds Sharp Electronics senior vice president Bob Scaglione, via PCMag. "We are bringing consumers an affordable display solution with superior picture and environmental performance that provides a true value. Sharp is able to deliver a price-competitive yet high-performance product by producing many of the key components of the TV, including the LED components and the LCD panel."

LED-backlit TVs are said to have longer lifespans, have lower power consumption, brighter screens and more vibrant colors.

The list of new TVs, via the source:

* The 52-inch LC-52LE700UN (52-inches) consumes 105W, exceeding ENERGY STAR guidelines by 68 percent. It will be available in July for an MSRP of $2,799.99 USD.

* The LC-46LE700UN (46 inches) consumes 90W, exceeding ENERGY STAR guidelines by 63 percent. It will be available in July for an MSRP of $2,199.99 USD.

* The LC-40LE700UN (40 inches) consumes 75W, exceeding ENERGY STAR guidelines by 60 percent. It will be available in July for an MSRP of $1,699.99 USD.

* The LC-32LE700UN (32 inches) consumes 55W, exceeding ENERGY STAR guidelines by 52 percent. It will be available in July for an MSRP of $1,099.99 USD.

$1099 is a bit pricey For an 32 inch doncha think.

personally I think they all a bit pricey considering there is better technology than back-lit screens that would be worth paying out for. There really shouldn't be a that huge of a difference in price from a standard HDTV.

I wonder how these compare to the Samsung LED series. I might just pick up one of these Sharp LED's for my bedroom this boxing day.
