If you make ends meet
by checking out digital X-rays each day, or you just suffer from an awkward obsession with watching 16:9 material in a vertical orientation, Sharp
is offering up a duo of LCDs specifically for you. Taking its highly-regarded PN-655U
and PN-655UP and designing them for portrait mode use, the 65-inch PN-655RU / PN-655RUP displays both feature 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, cold-cathode fluorescent backlight, 170-degree viewing angle, 400 cd/m2 brightness, dual 10-watt speaker terminals, a sleek, all black frame, and weigh in at a whopping 145.5-pounds. Although both displays are designed for the "rugged" hospital wall, the PN-655RUP adds a protective acrylic overlay for an additional layer of protection. Of course, owning a high-end display that looks more like a mirror and less like a TV demands quite a premium, as the PN-655RU will set you back about
a Mercedes C230
$29,995, while the PN-655RUP demands an even more shocking $32,995.
