Sharp LC-90LE745U

Sharp has announced its first 90-inch TV, which is taller than a basketball player and a smidgeon over 10 grand.

Watch this: Sharp's huge 90-inch LE745

Sharp has announced its biggest screen ever, the 90-inch monster LC-90LE745U, which includes 3D compatibility and Smart TV features.

The 90-incher follows the company's 80-inch TV, the LC-80LE632U, which debuted six months ago.

The TV is the latest addition to the LE745U range which is also available in 60-inch and 70-inch sizes.

The TV is full-array LED with over 500 LEDs behind the panel, and Sharp says this ensures better uniformity than edge-lit LED due to the TV's large size. In terms of design, the TV has a thin, aluminum bezel and is 5 inches thick.

The 90-inch LE745U is available now for $10,999. Ty Pendebury/CNET

Due to its size, the 80-inch LE632U had some problems with parts of the screen being off-axis when viewed from any angle -- meaning lighter blacks -- so we're interested to see if the 90-incher shares this problem.

The TV's features include a 120Hz refresh rate with Sharp's AquoMotion 240 technology, built-in Wi-Fi, and the company's Smart Central suite, which includes Neflix and Hulu Plus.

The TV won't come cheap, though, with a retail price of $10,999. It's available now from appliance retailers.
