Sharp presents the AQUOS LC-32GS, which is the industry's first 32-inch TV that offers the 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. Engadget says this is a waste of pixel density, as you need a larger screen size to take full advantage of full HD.
No doubt, this set does bring the specs: that "world's highest" 2000:1 contrast ratio we've seen on other ASV panels, 450cd/m2 brightness, 176-degree visibility, 6-ms response, integrated digital/analog terrestrial tuners, and a sweet bevy of jacks including 2x HDMI with Familink support, 2x Japanese D4, 2x S-Video, 4x composite, and a much appreciated DVI-I input for digitally tethering your computer and making use of those extra pixels.
The TV will be available later this month for approx. $2,395 in Japan.

Re: Sharp Aquos LC-32GS - the first full HD 32-inch TV by Anonymous on Thursday, January 25 2007 @ 21:37:36 CET
I've saved 3500 over the last year to buy a media center pc. It's going to function as my bedroom tv and computer. I really, really want the monitor to be a 32" HDTV LCD, and i've been looking at them for about a month now. Unfortunately, they don't make 1080p in tv's that small yet and 720 just wouldn't be enough resolution, and when I read about the Sharp 32" LC-32GS with its DVI input, I about flipped. That would be perfect. The research I found said they would be releasing them in Japan in Nov/Dec. and it didn't say when it would be released in the USA. I can't find any other information on the TV and I was wondering if anyone has any current information/updates on the LC-32GS and knows if and when they are going to release it here in the States. Any input is much appreciated. Thanks!

I've been searching for one for a month. There is nothing on the internet and I have called all of the large LCD retailers in LA - no dice. You can buy one in Japan for from 1500 to 2800 dollars. Let me know when you are going - or if you find them available.
