Sharp has released the World's largest HDTV at 90-inches, and it also happens to be the most expensive, with a retail price of $10,000.99.

The new TV heralds full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution with 3D capabilities. It supports a whole host of Smart TV components including: Netflix, CinemaNow, Hulu Plus and Vudu. 

The large-screen 3D line of Sharp's AQUOS smart LED technology delivers sharp and vibrant picture quality without glare. It weighs 142 pounds without a table stand and uses an aluminum screen bezel similar to the ones found in the Elite TV lineup. 

Sales of the TV are limited to specialized brick-and-mortar stores including Best Buy's Magnolia, PC Richard, Abt Electronics and HH Gregg. 

Its features include:

  • (90 1/64 diagonal) almost 2x the screen area of a 65
  •  Full HD 1080p
  •  AquoMotion 240
  •  Full array LED
  •  Built-in Wi-Fi
  •  Full SmartCentral user interface with Access to Netflix, Vudu, CinemaNow, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Internet Browsing
  •  Controllable from iPhone and android Smartphones - Coming soon
  •  Full HD Active 3D 
  • 2 x 3D glasses included in the box 
  • Not Energy Star qualified

Since Sharp launched the giant LC-90LE745U consumers have had mixed reactions, with some saying it is too large and expensive for the average residential home, while others say the specs make it worth every penny. 

While this is for sale in the consumer market, it is going to be ideal for businesses in the boardrooms, so dimming the lights will not be necessary. I don't really see a lot of people getting this TV, just because there is very little space for a TV of this size, bweber86 said in a comment on CNET's website. 

Wow what a complete waste. Might as well throw 10K in the toilet. That is way too big for a residential consumer, unless you have like a gigantic mansion. Plus like instybob mentions, you are better off buying a projector and it is very portable, another wrote on CNET's site. 

Twitter user AnthonyZet does not agree. Sharp's new HDTV is worth the dough just get a spilt it by 3 or 4, he tweets.
