Sharp AQUOS LC-65GX5: 65

Sharp‘s AQUOS LC-65GX5 is a 65″ LCD TV sporting an ASV TFT LCD panel. ASV is an enhanced VA type LCD technology that improves viewing angles and reduces color shifts at off-axis viewing. The viewing angle is 176/176: these numbers might sound slightly less than some others that you’ve seen, but that does not mean the ASV technology is any less capable, it just means that Sharp is a bit more conservative in measuring contrast ratio. For viewing angles to be registered as ‘viewable’ the contrast ratio has to be equal to or greater than 10:1.

All other features look fairly standard except for the interesting bulge on the bottom of the LC-65GX5: I don’t like it. I like simple and clean designs and the bulge is distracting. The overall look reminds me of TVs from a few years ago. The huge 65″ LCD TV will be in limited production of just 3000 units per month. I am sure Sharp will ramp that up if the demand is there.
