[tgdaily] Sharp’s 108” LCD TV on sale for $185,000

Chicago (IL) – Sharp recently announced that it will begin selling its 108†LCD TV in the U.S. in September and if you are planning on buying Sharp’s 108†TV you may want to hold off on that next Ferrari.




Big TVs always have been expensive. If you are looking beyond mainstream you are quickly in the five figures, which can be hit with 63â€-65†plasma and LCD TVs. High-end premium TVs such as Sony’s 70†Bravia XBR currently sell for about $30,000, while Panasonic’s 103†plasma TV has held the top spot with about $70,000 for more than a year. Adding inches on top of that will cost you quite some cash, at the tune of $23,000 per inch.

Retailers have begun selling (link to German website) Sharp’s LB-1085 108†LCD TV in Europe with prices starting at about 120,000 Euro – about $185,000 at the current exchange rate. Expect this TV to be a very special order, as you cannot simply pick it up (which will be quite difficult considering the TV’s weight of 209 pounds), but will have to wait 16 weeks until the device will be delivered.

Besides its large size, the TV does not provide unexpected technical features (sorry, no quad HDTV). The resolution is 1920x1080p, the brightness 400 cd, the contrast ratio 1200:1 and the response time 6 ms.

Sharp maintains that the LB-1085 will hit these shores this September and we are quite certain that the TV won’t cost $185,000 here. But plan on spending about $150,000, our sources indicated.

How about no. What the hell are they thinking. If anyone spends 150k on a T.V. i'll personally smack them in the head and be like *** are you stoopid?

Are you going to smack people who own their own jets or palaces while you are at it?


If you're uber-rich.... lucky bastards!

If a 40" high end screen costs about $2000, then why does a 108" screen cost $185000.

Put one of those on the wall in my room and use them to play Crysis maxed with 2x 4870X2.

THAT would be something.

If I was so rich I could have my own personal ball washer (<3 lewis Black) and afford this TV at the same time I wouldn't buy it just because it's a Sharp. From what I have seen at my job they always have the worst picture quality and just feel cheap.
