Remember those Quad Pixel sets from Sharp we told you about at CES? Well, Sharp says they’re ready and shipping and offered a few more details than previously available.

The new TVs cover all four of the LE830 Series AQUOS Quattron LED LCD TV models in 60-, 52-, 46- and 40-inch screen size. All of them are edge-lit LED LCDs using X-Gen LCD panels and Sharp’s Quad Pixel technology, which adds a yellow sub-pixel to the normal triumvirate of red, blue and green.

The new models all include built-in WiFi for smart TV-type features like video streaming via VUDU or Netflix and music from Pandora and others. They also include live, online customer support via Sharp’s AQUOS Advantage Live customer service.

Aside from the wide color pallet provided by the inclusion of yellow, Sharp claims its technology allows more light to pass through. The company also says its pixel structure minimizes light leakage while offering a wide aperture.

Each set includes four HDMI inputs and a new narrower bezel design. Also, they’re Energy Star 5.1 qualified.
