Not happy with the size of your 32in LCD TV? If money's no object, get on phone to Sharp, which is now taking orders for a monster 108in screen ready for connection to your HD kit.

Sharp's not saying how much the beast will set you back because it's offering the display entirely on a built-to-order basis. It's really aimed at businesses who want enormo-screens for conference rooms, shopping centres and the like.

If you can afford the LB-1085, what you get is an Advanced Super View-branded display that's the largest screen that can be cut from an eighth-generation, 2160 x 2460mm panel.

That means the screen is approximately 3.2m² - so you'd better make sure your living room can take it.

Sharp promised the LB-1085 will ship with a "rich assortment of inputs", including HDMI and DVI.

It also said the screen sports a "low-noise, fanless design" designed "to handle round-the-clock continuous operation" - perfect for those all-night back-to-back Lord of the Rings sessions, in other words.
