Sharp AQUOS Quattron plus

Sharp has finally launched and announced pricing for its Quattron+ – better known as Q+ – line of television announced earlier this year at CES.

If you aren’t quite ready to spend the money needed to get a 4K television, you may want to check out the Q+ line of televisions from Sharp. Announced at CES, this new addition to the AQUOS  line of sets are HD televisions that are able to upscale content to near 4K quality, but it also has another nifty trick up its sleeve. While the majority of 1080p televisions are not able to play 4K content, the Q+ models are able to accept those higher quality signals and play them, albeit at a somewhat lower quality. While 4K content isn’t exactly that prevalent yet,  these new televisions will at least offer you some future proofing for what is coming down the road.

The Q+ line starts with a suggested retail price of $2,499.99 for a 60-inch model and ranges all the way up to $5,999.99 for the 80-inch model. Of course, as with all prices listed by manufacturers, these are merely suggested prices, and we already see them for significantly less online.

We had a chance to check out the Q+ line while at CES in January, and while we didn’t get to put a set through its full paces, we walked away very impressed with them. The Q+ line may not be full 4K, but if you’re in the market for a new TV right now, it never hurts to future proof yourself.
