All TVs currently on the market can produce billions of colors using their red-green-blue color combination output. You'd think billions would be impressive enough, but Sharp felt there was a hue that was being ignored in the primary color scheme -- yellow.

The consumer electronics company announced at CES last week that it will begin selling LCDs with an added yellow component. What they're calling the QuadPixel can produce a trillion colors!

Sharp says that this will allow their 1.6-inch deep flat screens to produce, "more sparkling golds, Caribbean blues and sunflower yellows."

The new Aquos Series will be available later this year, though prices have yet to be released.

So what's more important to you, a truer color scheme or 3-D capabilities?
