Sharp D64U seriesSharp has announced that it is bringing the highly anticipated Sharp Aquos D64U series range of 1080p LCDs to the US market. The Sharp D64U series consists of four LCD ranging from 42-inches to 65-inches, which have all been totally re-engineered internally and externally to be 25% slimmer and 20% light than previous product lines all while consuming even less power. Apparently the size reduction is so noticeable you should be able to place a new 42-inch D64U (LC-42D64U) in the place of where a 40-inch set would normally fit.
