A 103-Inch Plasma TV?! Oh, My!

What do you think about this article? Rate it using the stars above and let us know what you think in the comments below.
There are certain weekends when curling up in front of the TV is the only thing you want to do. You don't need to go out or get dressed up; you just want to stay at home. The experience isn't only about leisure; it's about comfort and spending time with those who are closest to you. From now on, though, whether you're watching The Godfather for the 42nd time with your brother, making your boyfriend watch Titanic (or being forced to watch it with your girlfriend), or watching the big game with a group of friends, the television experience will never be the same. Panasonic has just given it a total makeover.

For many, big-screen TVs have been objects of desire since they were first introduced. Then, plasma screens came out, which once again reinvented the way television was watched—with clarity and precision never seen before—and everyone began to covet those as well. And when the two eventually came together, it resulted in the best thing a TV-phile could dream of: magnificence on a massive scale.

However, there's massive, and then there's massive. Panasonic's $70,000, 103-inch beauty debuted at the 2006 Consumer Electronics Show and currently ranks as the world's largest plasma television. Interestingly, the field is so competitive that at the 2005 CES, LG and Samsung both introduced 102-inch televisions only to be (literally) one-upped by Panasonic the following year.

So here are the specs for your newest gadget: the television is seven-and-a-half feet long and four feet wide (you're going to need a true great room with a great wall for this) and offers 30 square feet of viewing space, a 4,000:1 contrast ratio, a full HD pixel resolution of 1,920 horizontal by 1,080 vertical, and 16-bit processing producing 4,096 steps of gradation.

A word of warning: because the television weighs 485 pounds and requires professional installation, you should save yourself (and your back) the aches and pains of trying to get it to the house yourself. We'll assume that you were prepared enough and took this into consideration when purchasing it and that now you are merely waiting, like a child on Christmas Eve, for it to be delivered. And when it is, don't be surprised when it makes you the envy of all your friends and family and, quite possibly, everyone on the block.

(*Okay, full disclosure here: according to several electronics/gadget blogs and websites, it is predicted that Samsung or LG will develop and present a 104-inch plasma TV at the next CES. So while you may have the biggest and baddest television around right now, that title is fleeting. But hey, think about it this way: when the new television is introduced, you can just upgrade.)
