      The only reason that I would consider having a TV this big is if I were to own a Sports Bar with a 500 person capacity. A TV this large placed in a private residence isn't feasible.

      jeffwood@attnet, that's like saying "only a person who lives on the moon would want a lunar lander." Yes, and, yawn. I live in a studio apt, and I want a 150-inch plasma. I don't have the juice to turn in on, but I want one.

      This giant has got to cost some where between $10,000-$20,000

      Hot763, at least $20,000.00

      I have to agree w/ jeffwood up there, unless you own a sports bar w/ a LARGE capacity & a wide open area for viewing it would be pointless to have. You would actually have to sit atleast 50 ft away to keep from having to move your head around to see everything on the screen. $20k might be an slight understatement. Your electric bill would be bigger than the t.v. itself. You would have to get a huge theater sound system to match it. They won't sell as many as they hope to "IF" they even go into production.

      How do u get it through the doors?

      I have a 20'x20' media room that would accomodate it nicely. BTW, I saw a 100" at a show in Vegas and it was going for $75k. This thing HAS to be in the $150k-$200k range...IF it were in production!

      Also, BTW: I DO own a sports bar in Dallas and I wouldn't put one in there in a bet. All the drunks would destroy it in no time. This is WAY too expensive for a commercial application within reach of the public's throwing arm!

      Push the little button and the power meter goes boom.

      To let you know i have a 60" Plasma and it is almost too much.
      But to think of another 90" is unthinkable. And my 60" Incher uses 545 watts. And to add to that it puts off so much heat I almost did'nt need to run the heat here in florida. Let's see 30 degrees out the 150" tv is on and running the a/c just to keep from burning up.

      Wouldn't a TV like that put Sports Stadiums out of business? Why go to a stadium if you have one of these, It would be like having the stadium in you're living room! That would be totally awesome! Like some of the comments made by others, I too would like to know the price!

    17. dane_774 76 months ago | reply

      The price might make Bill Gates shiver.
      Something like this would be more of a status symble more than anything.

      the 103' last year was $60,000
      so this must be quite a bit more

      Season tickets to your favorite team = maybe $600-$700 a year.
      150" TV = maybe $150K -$200k

      I'll take the season tickets.
