Sharp launches 32-inch LC-32GP3U LCD at gamers


As announced in today's press conference, gamers are clearly in Sharp's sights for 2008 as an area of corporate growth. So here they are with their second generation 32-inch panel. The new 1080p set features a slimmer design and unique swivel stand. A "Game Mode" is said to optimize picture quality for game playing while the remote control allows for a quick swap of inputs. A Mountain Dew-ey "Vyper Drive" mode supposedly "eliminates perceptible lag time between game console input and the TV display." Rounding things out then is a 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 450 cd/m2 brightness, 3x HDMI 1.3 and 2x component inputs, and a custom design by renowned industrial designer, Toshiyuki Kita. Available in glossy finishes including black, red wine, and white for $1600 starting now.
