Earlier this year Sharp released their 70-inch LCD-TVs. Now Sharp has announced a massive 80-inch LCD-TV called 80LE632U. It comes with backlit LED, 120 Hz, built-in WiFi and Smart TV Apps such as Netflix and Vudu. Price: 5,999 USD.

Sharp is pumping out larger and larger TVs from their new LCD plants, dwarfing competitors 60-65-inch TVs. Sharpâ€™s newest addition to their TV line-up is a 80-inch LCDTV in the LE632 range.

The TV comes with backlit LED to ensure light homogeneity. Local dimming is not activated, however. The TV also boasts 120 Hz, built-in Wifi, and the NET TV+ internet platform with access to Netflix, CinemaNow, Vudu and more.
- "Our 80-inch AQUOS TV delivers more than double the screen area of a 55-inch TV, for an amazing viewing experience," said John Herrington from Sharp.
And an 80-inch TV is not discrete, true. It is four times as large as a typical 40-inch TV found in the majority of living rooms. You can use FlatpanelsHDâ€™s Display Comparison Tool to compare screen sizes. Below you see a 80-inch panel compared to a 65-inch.
