Sharp Launches First 32in Full HD LCDs

Resolution goes up, size goes down.

So you want the Full HD experience but you don’t have a room large enough to swallow one of the monstrous 37 or 40 inch panels required to display it? Step forward Sharp…

The company which sticks its nose into virtually everything has done what many cinephiles have been crying out for: shrink down Full HD. The result is a pair of 32 inchers called the LC-32GS20 and LC-32GS10 (above). Both have native 1920 x 1080 resolutions, 2000:1 contrast ratios, 460 cd/m2 brightness and 176 degree viewing angles.


Two HDMI ports also come as standard along with a single iLink port while the difference between the models is a little unusual: the 32GS20 has side speakers and the 32GS10 has a bottom mounted one. Yup, odd. As we speak no price has been fixed for either set (rumour is about $2,400) but they will hit the market just before Christmas (22 December) in Japan with a worldwide launch expected to follow early next year.


Of course many AV purists will argue that at sizes of less than 40 inches a 1920 x 1080 resolution is pointless but this ignores one of the most important elements of gadget ownership: bragging to your technologically challenged mates.
