Sharp GP1U Gaming LCD TVs: 4TW

While sure to be overshadowed by the 108-inch behemoth they unveiled today (literally), Sharp also introduced a new line of gaming-optimized 1080p Aquos LCD sets, which come in 37-inch and 32-inch flavors. Sporting 8500:1 and 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratios respectively, they both boast "QuickShoot" circuitry for a less than 6 ms response time. The feature that's supposed to sell the GP1U sets, though, is the "Vyper Drive," which reduces lag time between gaming consoles and the TV to "imperceptible levels." Conveniently, there are side-mounted, component and HDMI inputs, which have their own access button on the remote. Speaking of inputs, there are plenty to go around with three HDMI and two 1080p component ports along with a DVI-I terminal. Both drop in March, for $1700 (32-inch) and $2000 (37-inch), giving them two months to rename the poorly branded Vyper Drive.
