90″ Sharp Aquos LED TV is a Blu-ray Lovers Fantasy Come True

There’s nothing that can quite compare to the feeling you get from going to the theater to watch a movie. Checking out Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol on IMAX put me right in the midst of the Dubai action, especially when Tom Cruise hung from Dubai’s landmark skyscraper facing a near 800m drop.

While people may have grown accustomed to watching films on their Android and iOS phones or iPads in recent years, Blu-ray releases will always be the domain of the TV. The most thrilling action movies just don’t capture the same intensity when shown on a smaller computer screen or a handheld device.

Sharp has continued to push the envelope on the home viewing experience. And when it comes to TV technology, size does matter.

Sharp’s latest TV holds the crown as the world’s largest TV. The 90″ Aquos LED TV is toted to be the “largest on the planet.” While the typical consumer may not have a living room big enough to truly appreciate a TV of that size, one can always dream.

The 1080p TV stands at 4 feet tall and is 6 feet by 8 inches wide. For Blu-ray lovers, this is a dream come true. Consider it the IMAX version of TV viewing. Now, you just need to make sure you have a sound system to match. LED TVs are not known for having the best sound from their stereo speakers. Then again, if you’re willing to pony up the $10,999.99 SRP to buy the 90″ Aquos TV, I’m sure you’ll also get yourself a nice Bose audio system to match.

Sports fans will also enjoy the in-your-face viewing experience from this godzilla-sized TV, which will surely become a Super Bowl party cornerstone.

Gamers, however, may want to wait before investing thousands into this TV as a gaming screen. Large screen TVs, and especially LEDs tend to suffer from mild ghosting images. Also, multiplayer gamers may miss out on that sneaky sniper lurking four feet away in their periphery vision.

That’s a good point about how Blu-ray is for the best possible TV, which is what I aspire to, only my wallet isn’t up to the challenge.  I would LOVE this TV, but when I replaced my DLP I went with a projector.  I like it pretty well, and my Dish co-worker tried to encourage me by saying he didn’t notice a difference.  I think it looks good because I have 1080p channels with my Dish HD.  That makes the difference because I need the best quality picture to take advantage of the quality of the projector, and I get that with Dish.  I just watch in HD now since I have over 200 HD channels to choose from.
