One thing you can expect to happen in 2015 is the arrival of Android TV, a smart TV platform developed by Google that aims to make a big difference compared to what’s come out to date. I got a good look at what this platform has to offer and came away with some initial impressions.


Review: Sharp AQUOS 60" 1080p 240Hz 3D LED Smart TV

Earlier this year, I reviewed the big brother to the 60-inch Sharp AQUOS LED Smart TV, the 70-inch iteration. Aside from the 10-inch size difference, the two TVs look, feel and act aesthetically the same, right down to the subtle nuances embedded in the Smart menu. In fact, I was so impressed with the functionality of the TV I reviewed that I bought it from Sharp to hang in my living room! So when Future Shop approached me to do a follow-up review of the 60-inch version, it seemed like a no-brainer — why not take a look at other features of the TV that may have been missed the first time around?  So that’s exactly what I am going to do. This review will focus on the internals that power the TV, explain what 4K upscaling is really all about, and of course, some cool features of the user interface.

Review: Sharp 70” 1080p 240Hz 3D LED Smart TV

Growing up in a house predominantly inhabited by siblings and parents from Generation-Y, the love and appreciation for the television was instilled in me at a young age: starting with the early 80’s 11” General Electric tube television that was built-in to the red velvet wall of my father’s bar in my parents’ basement, right up to the 70” Sharp LED Smart TV that I had a chance to test and will review here. TVs are no longer the basic picture viewer that I grew up with—not even close; they’ve evolved into so much more. Whether we are talking about the functionality of the TV itself, the retail price point, or of course, the engineered design, TVs are maturing faster than the average household can keep up with, making it tough to discern between the good and the bad. So let’s take a look at one of the more popular brands in the smart TV game, Sharp, and discuss why its 70” 1080p 3D LED Smart TV option is worth considering as the next big investment for your living room.

You’re watching your favourite western, and having trouble telling a mule from a stallion, when it hits you; it's not your eyesight that's making you squint at the screen: it's the blurry image from that CRT tube TV with the 40 watt bulb you purchased back in 1997. As John Wayne once said, “Tomorrow hopes we have learned something from yesterday.” So relinquish the past and upgrade to something with “true grit!”  There are some amazing new TV products available right now.  Read on, friend.  Read on.  



CES 2013: There’s no actual way to show you how awesome this Sharp TV is.

4K is the next big thing. Sharp’s gone one further, showing off an 8K display. What does that mean? 8000 lines of horizontal resolution. It is, without a doubt, ridiculously good.


Which is why I took this picture with my iPad Mini. Because it doesn’t matter if I had an incredibly good camera, you’re still not going to be able to see how good this thing is... unless you had an 8K display.


So you’ll have to take my word for it. It was, like, awesome, man.
