Sharp is not a name you–or I, for that matter–hear very often in television circles, and this is actually something of a shame. But maybe you’ve seen those new commercials with George Takei checking out the new television, and having him effuse about the new pixel technology. But is the Sharp Quattron that much better than the ordinary? Today we check out the LC-40LE810UN to see for (or is it four?) ourselves.
The Sharp LC-40LE810UN is a forty inch 1080p LED television with internet connectivity for fast access to that mass of internet content, that “quad pixel” technology Takei was gushing over that adds yellow to the standard array of Red-Green-Blue (the addition of yellow ups the available color palette to just over a trillion) the UltraBrilliant LED system that gives higher brightness and color quality, two ten watt speakers and a fifteen watt subwoofer, four HDMI inputs, one PC input, one S-video input, one HD component input, one composite video two audio inputs, an Ethernet port, and a USB port.
Strange sort of non sequitur way to go, but it’s true–that yellow adds a whole new depth of color and clarity, at least as far as I could see. And the sound is just as impressive, backed up by something of a rarity in televisions, an onboard subwoofer.
Sulu’s got it right, folks–this thing is a downright beauty. And here’s the really exciting part; you can get one of these for just under eleven hundred bucks. Admittedly, that’s a bit much for a forty inch television but the picture really must be seen to be believed. If you’re in the mood to see something incredible, then take a look at a Sharp Quattron, especially the LC-40LE810UN.
