    Probably the equivalent of a decent house ($400K +).

    Samsung's 80-inch plasmas retail for about $150,000. :icon_eek:

    REgarding the picture size and quality, it depends on the pixel-size.

    If that thing is set at 1920 pixels across. Take 2.4 meters -> 240 cm and divide by 1920. Each pixel is thus 1.25 mm.

    Compare that to a PC CRT monitor where the dot pitch (pixel size) is about 0.25 mm.

    However, you are much closer to a PC monitor than this behometh. You are typically 2 feet away from a PC monitor.

    With this, you would be about 16 feet away, thus making the pixels the same size and quality "visually".

    Not if they're truly delivering 1920x1080.

    You better have a BIG room to put this beast in lol....:icon_eek: Since their 65 inch is a bargain $7500 maybe this one will only be 40 or 50K...:icon_eek: It would be fun to have a huge home theatre with great surround sound to go with your 103 in plasma!

    It would take watching 24 and HBO to a whole new level...

    Nope this one will cost as much as a house.

    Samsung's 80 inch plasma retails for $150,000.

    There isn't a linear cost increase when the size increases. It's a compounded factor.

    Not for 10 years at least! :lol:

    I figure a 50 inch plasma for $2500 - $3000 will suffice for many people.

    I apologize for the guys L. They forgot how the thought of being with a lady makes you puke. We all know how you only think that way towards other men. :icon_banana:

    Not that there's anything wrong with that! :icon_tease:
