While everyone else was getting busy with their debut 3D TVs, Sharp was ploughing a lonely – though far from futile – furrow with its first Quattron TVs.

These, uniquely, added a fourth yellow sub-pixel to the standard trio of red, green and blue. The LC-60LE925E, however, is the full monty, combining Quattron technology with active shutter, full HD 3D.

It's also the Japanese firm's first TV to offer online services, in the form of the AquosNet platform. It doesn't have a Freeview HD tuner, but Sharp is set to put this right with some smaller 3D sets that are due to launch in February.

If three dimensions don't interest you but Quattron does, meanwhile, Sharp has a selection of models to tickle your fancy.

These include the 46-inch 46LE821E and 40-inch 40LE821E, with built-in Freeview HD tuners and HDD recording; the 46-inch 46LE811E and 40-inch 40LE811, which ditch the built-in HDD recording and finally the 40-inch 40LE820E, which has built-in recording, but lacks a Freeview HD tuner.

Sharp also offers some high-value LCD CCFL models for people who don't want or can't afford Quattron technology, including the 42-inch LC-42CT2E and 32-inch 32CT2E, the 32-inch LC-32FH510E, the 32-inch 32DV200E with built-in DVD player and finally three relatively small edge LED models, the 32-inch LC-32LE320E, 26-inch LC-26LE320E and 22-inch LC-22LE320E.
