Sharp just introduced its A Series of LCD TVs that include three sizes: 52″, 46″ and 40″. The largest of the three is the LC-52AE6 that sports a 52″ ASV (Advanced Super View) TFT LCD panel sporting a 1920 x 1080 pixel format. All A Series models feature 120Hz frequencies that reduce motion blur. Brightness of the 52″ LCD TV is a decent 450 cd/m2 and viewing angles are very good at 176/176. The LC-52AE6 has an ambient light sensor that is integrated into the unit that checks how bright the environment is and adjusts the backlight appropriately. Although this is a power saving as well as a picture enhancing technology, I like to have absolutely control over the brightness of my TV. The LC-52AE6 consumes power at annual rate of 175kWh or 180W.
