Sharp's Blu-ray recorder TVs will ship next month

Each of the 16 new models work with BD-RE 2.1 single- and dual-layer discs, in addition to BD-R 1.1 single- and dual-layer recordable discs. The recorder is wedged into a vertically slot behind the screen.

The 120Hz screens range in size from 52in to 26in, but while all of the big screens - 37in or bigger - provide a 1920 x 1080 resolution, the smaller sets have a 1366 x 768 resolution.

Models also come with two HDMI ports and will be available in a range of colours, including black, white and red.

Sharp will launch its Blu-ray Disc recorder Aquos sets into Japan next month and it’s thought the screens will be launched in the US before Christmas. A UK release date or priced hasn’t been recorded yet.
