If you’ve been watching the Hockey Playoffs this season, you’ve no doubt seen Sharps ads for their new 70 inch LCD TV, touting it as being bigger than 4 – 46” TV sets or 62% bigger than a single 55” LCD set.
According to local electronics store retailers these new Sharp 70” LCD’s are flying off the shelves and they’re having a hard time keeping them in stock.
At a MSRP of $3,799 the Sharp 70” LCD isn’t cheap but compared to the price of a Sharp 65” LCD at $12,999 just four years ago these things are a steal today!

Massive cannot begin to describe the picture size of the new Sharp 70” LCD TV when compared to a 42” or 50” inch set. The four color Quattron technology and Full LED backlighting provides vivid, stunning color while the built in Wifi internet connectivity including apps like Netflix and DNLA support make this TV ideal for everyone except those wanting 3D capability. What? did you say No 3D! That’s right you heard it right, the New Sharp 70” LCD TV boasts a massive picture screen, Quattron Technology but No 3D TV. Connectivity on the Sharp LC-70LE732U includes
