Sharp AQUOS SE94 Series
by Mark R
Considering that we are less than one year away from the big HDTV switch, it is not surprising that Sharp/AQUOS is prepared with the SE94 Series.
The SE94 series is designed with a “Cornerstone design” with detachable bottom speakers and a slimmer and lighter design. The SE94 also has terrific picture quality with 1080p resolution, as well as a Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 27,000:1. As for colors, the 10-bit ASV panel and 5-wavelength backlight system provides vibrant red and truer greens. In short, it is simply a better picture.
One of the most unique features of this HDTV is the AQUOS Net, which can provide “customized Web-based content as well as real-time customer support directly from the AQUOS television”. For example, the user has the option of watching “widgets” to get updates on their weather, stock quotes, or even comic strips.
What is most interesting about the internet connectivity is the customer assistance. An interactive tool known as AQUOS Advantage Live allows Sharp/AQUOS employees to access the television directly, so that they can fully make adjustments online such as TV settings and picture quality.
The SE94 is available now in three styles. The 46-inch LC-46SE94U for about $3,199.99 MSRP, the 52-inch LC-52SE94U for about $4,199.99, and the 65-inch LC-65SE94U for about $10,999.99.
