Manufacturers of large, flat panel LCD televisions, such as Sharp Electronics, try to design products with features which will appeal to consumers. A growing number of flat panel televisions of late are being marketed with more eco-friendly features which are both nice for the environment and also easier on one’s wallet via the cutting down of energy usage. One such new flat panel series from Sharp, the AQUOS LED, was recently announced for July 2009.
The Sharp AQUOS LED series acts much like your typical full HD 1080p models which are compatible with the HDMI 1.3 standard for support of Deep Color. A variety of screen sizes are available to choose from, including 52- (LC-52LE700UN), 46- (LC-46LE700UN), 40- (LC-40E700UN) and 32-inch (LC-32LE700UN), and all of the units make use of a LED backlight for higher brightness and contrast levels.
Where Sharp tries to differentiate the AQUOS LED line up from other models it produces as well as that of competitors is in the self-described eco-friendly features. The manufacturer says that the LED backlight technology allows for better light output per watt and a “system designed to lower power consumption during use by adjusting the screen brightness based on the level of brightness in the area of installation.” This all amounts to what is said to be the industry’s lowest power consumption of any LCD TV currently available on the market as well as claims that the AQUOS LED televisions exceed current Energy Star guidelines for less energy consumption in electronics.
