Sharp's New HDTV Lets Viewers Choose Between 2D and 3D

There'll be no fighting over which version to watch – simply switch the glasses for a 2D picture.

The latest sets from Sharp don't exactly solve the 3D issue, but they go a long way towards helping out. If you get a headache from 3D or simply don't enjoy it, you can switch your glasses to 2D mode. You'll still have to wear them of course, but you won't have to deal with things popping out at you at least.

That's not the only thing Sharp's new set does. The Quattron 3D LE925 series uses that good old Quad Pixel technology and LED backlighting to give you the brightest picture on the market today – something that's absolutely essential when you're wearing 3D glasses.

"Quattron, which combines quad pixel technology and the X-Gen LCD panel, provides a foundation for 3D that other manufacturers simply cannot match," says Sharp VP Bob Scaglione. " Quattron 3D overcomes the dark and blurry images associated with traditional 3D televisions so the consumer can realize the full potential of this compelling new format."

You can pick up Sharp's new TV now in a 52 inch size for $4,200 and at 60 inches for $5,299.
