The Sharp THX 4K Certified Ultra HDTVs have passed 400 lab tests put together by Hollywood professionals. At CES, we found ourselves coming back to the Sharp booth to hypnotize ourselves in front of this gorgeous and affordable Ultra High Definition Television. The 4K TV’s feature the latest codecs to allow 4K streaming from providers like Netflix, and other 4K players that will become available in the future. The units will include four HDMI ports capable of receiving 3840 x 2160 signals at 60 frames per second, three USB ports, and the updated SmartCentral 3 platform, which makes content recommendations to the viewer along with other new features. It may not be as cheap as the competition, but we felt that you’ll get the most bang for your buck with Sharp.
