Default Panasonic DMP-BD10/103-Inch Plasma Combo

Okay, feel free to send me one for Christmas:

One question: if you wanted a 103-inch screen, wouldn't you just buy a front projector? I assume it would be cheaper than $70,000!

Oh it would.. but than you would have to worry about lamp life.

This news still hasn't sunk in yet. Maybe will April 1st 2007.

Don't be silly - it's Blu-ray, and therefore not actually sold on Amazon.

People often have NO clue how cheap front projection is in comparison to other technologies. Full blown 100"+ front projection at 720p HD can be done, including 7.1 surround and the screen, for about $2,000. Add an extra $1,000 for a projector that offers a bit more setup versatility (but no real added performance).

1080p front projection can be done for under $5K - and I expect that to be closer to $4K or $3K (for a complete setup) by the end of next year.

But, front projection still doesn't work really well when the lights are on and this plasma should be stunning whether the lights are on or off. I can imagine that there are a few government clients who would go ga-ga over a screen they can use under full ambient light conditions and doesn't require lamp changes in their 24x7 top secret facilities. They probably would leave the Blu-ray player on the shelf though since they couldn't spell HD if they had to.

As Michael Richards would say...."N---A PLEASE!"


























For those offended by that joke (Richards is a moron), tough. Stop living in a PC world and learn to make fun of the absurd. That's why Borat was so successful at the box office.

I actually had the privilege of seeing this TV is in action at the opening of the Millionaire Fair in Amsterdam this Thursday. No, I'm not a millionaire, I worked there. The picture quality was A-MA-ZING! It was sharp, vibrant, just jaw-dropping. It was hooked to a Blu-Ray player and had several trailers playing all night, including Ice Age, which looked absolutely stunning. The whole time I spent at the Panasonic stand I only heard positive reviews. I don't care how HD-DVD looks on it, Blu-Ray is my absolute favorite. I want that TV bad....

I would love to see one in the flesh too. I do wonder though, that when comparing the price to a 1080p projector, whether it really makes sense to actually go for a plasma screen that size!

In the UK the delivery for the 103 inch plasma is 5,000 - I could buy a Sony Pearl for the delivery price alone!
