Sharp has announced the release date and price for its largest ever LCD TV, the 90-inch LC-90LE740X.

Throughout most of 2012, Sharp was the go-to company for plus-size LCD screens. The company secured the size crown when it first released the 70-inch LE735X in May, then followed with a premium 80-inch LE940X in late August.

Sony and LG had a temporary, combined victory with the announcement and eventual release of their respective Ultra HD 84-inch LED TVs in December, but Sharp retains the trophy with this latest release — at least until Samsung debuts its 110-inch F9000 Ultra HD LED TV locally.

The LC-90LE740X TV uses a Full HD 1080p, rather than Ultra HD, full-LED-backlit LCD screen, and has a native 200Hz refresh rate. 3D support is built-in and two sets of 3D glasses are bundled with the television, along with a Wi-Fi network adapter. The LCD panel for the extra-large 90-inch television is made at Sharp’s Japanese production plants, in Kameyama and Sakai.

The Sharp LC-90LE740X will be available in late January, for the surprisingly reasonable price of $20,999 — that’s $4000 more expensive than LG’s 84-inch UHD TV, but $4000 less than Sony’s.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
