In life, somethings are better off small — think artificial hearts and improvised explosive devices. TV is not one of those things; hence, the Sharp LC-90LE745U 90-inch Aquos LED Smart TV, a.k.a. the biggest LED TV currently in production. We introduced you to its little (80-inch) brother last September, and the big bro obviously has the same genes. Outside of the added screen size and an extra inch of girth, Sharp’s latest retains filial traits like built-in Wi-Fi, NetFlix, Vudu, and Hulu, and adds 3D, all at 1080p resolution.

Still more Nimitz-class than Ford, some will lament the lack of 4K capability, particularly at double the suggested price of its predecessor ($10,999). However, at the recommended viewing distances, the resolution will meet even the above-average viewers’ requirements. LED also means you won’t need a nuclear reactor next to the couch to power it, since it draws about the same juice as two 75-watt lightbulbs. Sharp throws in two pair of 3D glasses with the purchase, which is a nice gesture considering you’ll spend $11,000 to bring it home. The good news is once it’s unpacked, you can probably move your mother-in-law into the box.
