Loaded with features like the Quattron 4 colour system, the X-Gen panel, and Aquomotion technology, Sharp’s AQUOS line of televisions actually succeed in delivering some genuinely useful innovations. Let’s look at a diverse variety of AQUOS televisions, and see if there’s one that can match your home theatre ambitions.

An entry level model, the Sharp AQUOS 40” 1080p LED HDTV is currently available and affordable – but can a television this affordable deliver enough performance to meet your expectations? Offering an extra-wide viewing angle, this edge-lit LED television offers a fairly substantial dynamic contrast ratio of three million to one – which is reflected in the high quality of its 1080p image.


Sporting a slim and sleek design, the 40” AQUOS comes packaged with an easy-to-remove stand. Boasting USB, HDMI, and component compatibility, this television also does a reasonably good job doubling as a supersized computer monitor.

The Sharp AQUOS 60” 1080p LED Smart TV aims to deliver top-of-the-line performance for a middle-of-the-road-price. It succeeds for the most part, thanks to the presence of Sharp’s X-Gen panel – a technology which maximizes image brightness, providing the viewer with a potent and powerful picture. Offering a dynamic contrast ratio of four million to one, the 60” AQUOS is also capable of incredibly crisp on-screen motion. This Sharp television also features a 176 degree viewing angle, and does an impressive job at accommodating larger groups of viewers.


A solid all-around device for the media enthusiast, the 60” AQUOS comes equipped with a generous variety of connectivity options – including four HDMI ports, as well as PC, USB, Wi-Fi and Ethernet support.

The Sharp AQUOS 80” 1080p 3D LED Smart TV is a very, very big television. Sharp’s hyper-realistic image looks spectacular on this absolutely enormous screen. 

Under the hood, you’ll find Sharp’s Quattron 4 Colour technology – which creates an image using a palette of four colours, instead of the standard three which are offered by most televisions. Boasting an absolutely astonishing dynamic contrast ratio of ten million to one, the 80” AQUOS offers a color depth and density that's definitely worth seeing for yourself. Sharp’s UltraBrilliant LEDs are really working their magic here, and it’s quite impressive. Combined with AQUOS’ AquoMotion technology, and you get an action movie fan’s dream – an eighty inch television which delivers an unbelievably crisp and visceral experience in both 2D and 3D.

Offering USB, HDMI, and component compatability, this Wi-Fi enabled television also doubles as a very capable Internet hub – and can connect you with a wide variety of online services like YouTube, Netflix, and even Skype. If you’re on the market for a top-of-the-line home theatre system, the 80" AQUOS may very well be the solution you've been looking for.
