Where would you put yours?

Samsung has unveiled what's possibly the world's largest plasma monitor screen - a monster 255cm (102in) high density panel codenamed 'Atlas'.

The resolution is a mere 1920 x 1080, little bigger than most larger PC monitors, but with a contrast ratio of 2000:1 and a 1000 candlepower per square metre brightness rating, the giant screen should leave viewers feeling sufficiently in among the action.

Indeed, the whole thing measures roughly 2.2 x 1.3m, so you need a gargantuan living room to put it in. An equally colossal wallet would come in handy too: Samsung didn't reveal a price, but it's likely to be substantial. Samsung did say it will be ramping production between January and June 2005.

The new screen comes almost a year after Samsung showed off its 200cm (80in) plasma display panel. ®
