LG’s 163-inch MicroLED TV that was unveiled, Sharp’s display is designed for enterprise use such as convention centers, hotel lobbies, and exhibitions halls. But if you have enough money and room in your home, this could be the best companion for a PS5/Xbox Series X/RTX 3090.
The Sharp 8M-B120C’s list of features is extensive: it uses a 120-inch UV2A II LCD panel with a 7,680 x 4,320 resolution, a 120 Hz refresh rate (4K only), a 3,500:1 contrast ratio, a 6ms GtG response time, and 600 nits typical brightness which is higher in HDR mode. It also has direct LED backlighting with 2,048 local dimming zones, can display 1.07 billion colors, a response time of 6ms, and support for HDR technologies such as HLG.
The 8M-B120C comes with an HMDI 2.1 input, which allows [email protected] and [email protected] refresh rates over a single cable. Both the Xbox Series X and PS5 have HDMI 2.1 ports, and the GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs are the first available to feature HDMI 2.1 support.
Sharp says that the 8M-B120C monitor can reproduce 1.07 billion colors and is designed to cover a significant portion of the ITU-R BT.2020 color gamut. Meanwhile, to make the colors look more vivid, the 8M-B120C has a little better representation of red than defined by the BT.2020, according to the company. The display supports HDR technologies, such as HLG.
Being the first company to release its 8K display over five years ago, Sharp has been gradually improving its panels featuring a 7680×4320 resolution as well as displays and televisions. When compared to predecessors, the Sharp 8M-B120C supports a higher typical brightness (600 nits vs. 400 nits), a faster response time (6 ms vs. 8 ms), and an HDMI 2.1 input that will make the unit compatible with upcoming consoles, players, and other equipment.
