Panasonic Re-introduces a better 103-inch 1080p Plasma

Panasonic Re-introduces a better 103-inch 1080p Plasma

We thought the big Plasma outfit from Panasonic was for show, no go. Apparently, they’ve proved us wrong by publishing the number of 103-inch Plasma unit sold in a Japanese commercial and kept pushing the sizes up to 150-inch at CES 2008. The Big-Plasma-Biz must be good for Panasonic. They have reintroduced the same 103-inch with few upgrades for commercial line and wealthy individual looks to impress their clients or neighbors.

Panasonic delivers a TV that is designed to be Wii-proof

Panasonic delivers a TV that is designed to be Wii-proof

Do you remember back when the Wii came out? It seems like ages ago, but it was only a little over a year ago. People were really excited to get one. So excited in fact, that they would forget to keep a firm grip on their Wiimote and send it crashing through their very expensive flat panel TVs. While Nintendo has taken several precautions to ensure flying Wiimotes are a thing of the past, Panasonic is doing their part to keep your TV in one (working) piece.

Fifteen Panasonic’s 103-inch Plasma Sold So Far

Fifteen Panasonic’s 103-inch Plasma Sold So Far

Remember the Panasonic’s 103-inch plasma TV? It was once the world’s largest Plasma TV but it has been replaced by the 150-inch model this year announced at CES 2008. Anyway, if you wonder anyone would spend that sort of money to get a $50,000-$80,000 plasma instead of a projector, think again. The news from Far East reveals there have been 15 of them sold worldwide from US, Europe to Japan, and 5 of them were sold to a man from Middle East. But they are still far from reaching the 5000 units target, the 150-inch replacement seems to be a better and more logical choices over projector. Time will tell.

CES 2008: APC AV’s C2 power filter discretely protects your flatscreen

CES 2008: APC AV’s C2 power filter discretely protects your flatscreen

It's ironic that people are willing to spend so much money on high-end LCD and plasma TVs but then blanch at buying power regulating equipment that could save their screen in the event of a lightning storm or power surge.  APC AV are certainly taking the "but it looks ugly" argument out of the equation with their C2 Power Filter; while it might resemble little more than a black shoe-box, the fact that it's merely two-inches deep means it can be sited behind a wall-mounted display.

CES 2008: LG unleash tidal wave of new TVs

It's turning into a day of TVs at CES, but then I suppose for many people Sunday is the ideal time to slump in front of the box.  LG seem to be suggesting that you shouldn't even leave the bed: their rather attractive LG40 "Bedroom TV" is 32-inches of HDTV goodness, with a side-loading DVD player and 12,000:1 contrast ratio.

Is a TV too thin when you can cut yourself on it?  We're not quite at that stage yet, but Pioneer are getting there with their Project KURO plasma TV: at just 9mm deep it's the thinnest yet.  They've also managed to achieve 'extreme contrast' - i.e. black sections of the screen emit no light whatsoever - and all in something a whopping 50-inches across.

CES 2008: Vizio unveil 50-inch 1080p Plasma TV with Silicon Optix HQV Processing

If you're in the market for a new high-def TV then don't be surprised if you're magnetically drawn to CES over the next week or so - the place is simply heaving with high-definition sets.  Vizio is responsible for a lot of them, too; the company has launched seven new plasma TVs to join their flagship 50-inch VP504F complete with Silicon Optix HQV processing, including the 60-inch VP605F.  Both are 1080p capable.

 

LG 71-inch 24 Carat Gold TV Takes Decadence To New Heights

LG 71-inch 24 Carat Gold TV Takes Decadence To New Heights

With LG’s 71-inch regular plasma going for around 28 grand, you can only imagine what a 24 Carat Gold version would go for. The best/worst part, that’s not the only thing LG has gone and coated in pure gold.

I guess this mammoth monitor is merely part of a set of subs, speakers, and DVD players that are all coated in gold. That single fact makes me wonder whether the chick standing next to it all is just a model or if she’s packing heat since a single item could probably net you a new car.
