BERLIN (Reuters) - Panasonic said on Thursday it would start selling the world's largest television set, featuring a 103-inch (262-centimetre) screen, for $80,000.

"That's before installation cost," said a Panasonic spokesman at the IFA consumer electronics fair here.

Panasonic is the main brand name for products of Japanese electronics giant Matsushita.

The set is five inches thick.

Well at the rate video displays devalue (by about 50% a year) your $80,000.00 TV will be worth $40,000.00 next year, and about $20,000.00 year after that. Personally I would rather have an $80,000.00 sports car then a $80,000.00 TV.

I'm presently running a 120 inch setup, using a Panasonic front projector. The new cost of the projector and screen was under $2500...just a wee bit better price/size ratio...:)

The first hi-def TV monitors in Japan 20 years ago cost that much, in 1980's dollars. They were used in top corporate board rooms for tele-conferences. Ananlog, not digital at the time.
