On the other hand, besides black level performance claims, these sets do offer a lot of high-end features that make them worth consideration. Both sets in the new line-up utilize full array LED backlighting with local dimming and 240Hz effect scanning backlight. Also included, Sharp's Quattron 4-color technology, THX certification for both 2D and 3D performance, and ISF calibration setting provisions. In addition, the built-in WiFi capability on both sets provides easy connection to home network for access to a host of internet streaming content (such as Netflix, CinemaNow, Blockbuster-on-demand, Napster, and Pandora) as well as content stored on network connected PCs and media servers. Another exciting feature is Elite Advantage Live which allows users to connect to Sharp Elite tech support directly through the TV's network connection. A technical staff member can actually take control of your TV to assist in troubleshooting any connection problems or tweak settings.
The PRO-60X5FD has a suggested price of 5,999.99, while the PRO-70X5FD has a suggested price of $8,499.99.
