Sharp Aquos LC-37P70E / LC-32P70E / LC-26P70E LCD TV for Europe

This site has moved to

Sharp Europe announces three new models in their famous Aquos line that follow ever successful P50 series: P70. The P in my understanding stands for power - meaning less power. And indeed, this new breeds power consumption ranges from 110W for the smalles model to 168 Watt for the 32-incher. Obviously, being inferior to plasma in picture quality - there are 2 features that LCDs beat the plasma - power consumption and no retention on the screen ( a.k.a burn-in ).
All LCD models feature DVB-T tuner for receiving Freeview and HDMI for your digital sources. Resolution is 960x540 - exactly twice less then 1080p ( 1920x1080 ) meaning you will get your 1080i and 720p shrinked, and 1080p rejected for no support. Contrast ratio of panels is 800:1 with brightness of 450cd/m2 - a little above average for a modern LCD. P70 series is specifically designed for Europe with power supply of 220Volts and PAL decoder.
All thre models - LC-37P70E, LC-32P70E, and LC-26P70E will be available in April with
