Lottery winners now have one more reason to celebrate: Now you can add one more conspicuous piece of expensiveness to your already tasteless and cluttered duplex: After years of showing the thing off at trade-shows, Panasonic will finally take your money in return for a 103-inch plasma TV. The price? A mere $102,000 (¥8.5 million).
This huge television, probably bigger than any of your windows, has also been given the 3D treatment (it ships with a single pair of specs), offers a contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1 and -despite the huge screen, a resolution of 1920 × 1080.
Once you have come up with the money, you’re problems are just beginning. First, you need to get the thing into the house. If you remove it from its box, the set measures 241.2 × 141.9 × 14.1 cm. That’s almost eight-feet long, and then you have to deal with the stand, which takes the depth up from just over a foot to almost three-feet (87.1cm).
Want to hang it on the wall instead? Best call in some friends to help. The bare, stand-free set tips the scales at 200-kilos, or 440-pounds. Add in the stand and the fat thing balloons to 321-kilos, or 707-pounds.
Astonishing, but once everything is installed, you’re done, right? You can sit back and relax, enjoying the immersive 3D landscape before you. Or can you? Maybe you should start thinking about the next electricity bill. The television uses around 1350-watts of juice. Oh, and you’ll need to spring for some speakers, too.
Available now to lottery winners and other taste-free consumers.
