Sharp's E67U LCD line sticks to the basics

Sharp announced a new entry-level line of LCDs, the LC-E67U series, featuring four HDMI inputs.

CES may be the place to make a big splash with new technology, but it's also a place for manufacturers to announce their standard product lines. Sharp's LC-E67U line of LCDs doesn't offer up anything surprising, although it's worth noting the generous four HDMI inputs. Here are the details.

Key features of the Sharp LC-E67U series:

  • Advanced Super View antireflective screen
  • Four HDMI inputs
  • Two component video inputs
  • Energy Star 3.0 compliant
  • Vyper Drive gaming mode
  • 32- and 40-inch screen sizes

While most of these features are pretty standard, Advanced Super View (ASV) is a term specific to Sharp. ASV describes the coating used on the LCD panels, designed to reduce lighting reflections while maintaining a crisp picture. Most LCDs are using some sort of antireflective coating these days, so the technology isn't unique, and we'll need to do a hands-on test to see how it compares to the competition.

The LC-32E67U will come out in February with an MSRP of $900; the LC-40E67U comes out in March with an MSRP of $1,200. Sharp also announced a step-up line of LCDs, the LC-E77U series, which offers 120Hz processing and an additional HDMI input.
