October 22, 2008 Sharp's new 16-model AQUOS line-up is the first series of LCD TV's in the world to be equipped with built-in Blu-ray Disc recorders. Ranging in size from 26-inch to 52-inch, the all-in-one DX Series design means there's no cords cluttering the back of your TV stand and viewing, disc-playing and recording can be simply controlled using one remote.

The 16 models include three color variations (black, white and red) and the TV itself is made from a high-quality Kameyama LCD panel. The larger units feature full HD resolution (1,920 H x 1,080 V pixels) with the 32 and 26-inch versions have a 1,366 H x 768 V dot count. Audio output is 30W on the larger 52 and 46-inch models with the remainder specced at 20W and all-models include Sharp’s 1-Bit digital amp and side-port Bass Reflex Speaker.

A Digital W Tuner lets you record programs while watching TV, and the H.264/AVC (Advanced Video Coding) standard of the MPEG-4 suite enables 5X extended HD video recording while retaining the same exact full-HD quality as the original high-definition broadcast. The DX Series also features 2X Mode and 3X Mode with Full-Capture Extended HD Recording, which allows recording of audio surround-sound data and extended HD recording while keeping intact the program data links embedded in the original video.

The AQUOS DX series was introduced at a Press Conference in Tokyo earlier this month and they will be available in Japan from November. Prices range from approximately USD$4,700 for the 52-inch to around $1500 for the 26-inch model.

I don\'t like your format!!
You give these headlines and when I click on it I want SPECIFIC pictures and comment from your website editors., and writers.

But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. You link to some other item mentioned in the headline instead, probably things that interest YOU, not your viewer.

For example I\'m still hunting for details on the new SHARP AQUOS DX series with 3-D sets. I still don\'t know when they will be coming out. You then take me to an IMAGE GALLERY, where I further confused. You need to reexamine what you\'re doing.

I suggest that you start by examining the way CNET does it webpages and HEADLINES, etc.

just some suggestions and constructive positive criticism.

Can\'t take criticism.. Prepare to fall apart.
