Sharp's AQUOS line of LCD TVs already has a track record for being environmentally sound appliances having earned PC Mag's GreenTech Approval before. Further taking a step in that direction is the newly-launched Sharp AQUOS Line that replaces the series' conventional backlighting with energy efficient LED lights. Available in sizes ranging from 32 to 52 inches, the Full-HD 1080p LCD TV series is basically the same AQUOS TVs, remade to use Sharp's proprietary UltraBrilliant LED backlight technology. "With the introduction of the AQUOS LED series," says Sharp Electronics senior vice president Bob Scaglione, "we are bringing consumers an affordable display solution with superior picture and environmental performance that provides a true value. Sharp is able to deliver a price-competitive yet high-performance product by producing many of the key components of the TV, including the LED components and the LCD panel." The use of solid state lighting on the Sharp AQUOS LED models means mercury has been completely eliminated from the picture. More than just the presence of LED lighting though, the TVs have an ambient light sensor that automatically adjust backlighting based on the room's brightness conditions. These elements allow the series to boast the lowest consumption possible (see figures after the jump) by any LCD TV available in the market today. Sharp also claims that because solid state lighting does not give off heat, that contributes to a longer product lifespan.
