Sharp LC70LE741E 70in Smart 3D LED TV on sale for £2160

The average price of very big televisions is falling fast as you can now acquire the Aquos LC70LE714E from Japanese manufacturer Sharp for as little as £2158.98 from DirectTVs. The company has included a refurbished but free Wireless AV/TV sender from Philips and offers the opportunity to get free delivery via a Which? magazine offer.

The television offers almost twice the viewing size of a 50in display but sticks to a full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution, although one might argue that 50in displays tend to cost around a third of the price.

Other features include a 100Hz refresh rate with dejudder technology, 3D compatibility (with glasses optional), a Freeview HD tuner, a USB Wi-Fi dongle, DiVX HD, USB playback, Aquos Net + internet access, four HDMI, one USB, one VGA, one Aquos Link and one LAN ports as well as a number of legacy ports.

The USB port can be used in conjunction with an external storage system (a 64GB USB drive for example) to record HD content over the air. Note that the screen weighs 41Kg and has a width of 161cm which means that you will probably need two people to handle it.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
