Matsushita Readies 103-inch Plasma TV for Sale

Jul 10, 2006

Just in case you feel that your current TV is simply not large enough for your tastes, Matsushita is ready to begin selling their monster-sized 103-inch plasma TV, otherwise known as "that big-ass TV that requires a second mortgage on your home to buy." It features such state-of-the-art features as 1080p HDTV capabilities and a 3000:1 contrast ratio, and weighs in at an astounding 215 kg (or roughly 474 lbs.).

Matsushita's new baby also beats out Samsung's 102-inch TV as the biggest available (even though Samsung has yet to begin selling their mega-set). While a price has yet to be announced, this thing won't be cheap by any definition; Matsushita's 65-inch plasma sets retail for $7,500 in Japan. Don't be surprised if this new set clocks in at over $10,000, and also don't be surprised if you're forced to sell possessions to acquire one.
