Sharp ships HD recorder with 1TB of storage

Sharp has announced five new models of their AQUOS HD recorders that will be available in Japan later this month. The top of the line model, the DV-ACW60, has the most hard drive space to date (1TB) while the lowest capacity of all the five models is 250GB. Three of the new models (DV-ACW60, ACW55 and ACW52) include a high-speed infrared system that allows the fast transfer of photographs from mobile phones and digital cameras, all of which can be saved as an album. The high-definition recorders also allow users to simultaneously record two programs in full-spec HD from an AQUOS LCD TV.

All models also have a quick activation function that allows users to activate a recorder from the standby mode in only .08 seconds, which Sharp claims is an industry first. The DV-ACW60 will retail for $1,650, the 500GB DV-ACW55 will retail for $1,155 (dual tuner) and $908 (single tuner) while the 250GB DV-ACW52 will retail for $908 (dual tuner) and the DV-AC52 will go for $743 (single tuner).
