Panasonic pitches monster 3D plasma TV at monster price

Big living room, bigger wallet required

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

103in plasma 3D TV, anyone? Yours if you have £75,000 ($120,000) and a Japanese bank account handy, says Panasonic, which introduced the monster set this morning in the Land of the Rising Sun.

You don't get much extra for your money - no Blu-ray Disc player, or bundled content. At least Panasonic has the courtesy to chuck in a stand, a remote and a pair of 3D glasses...

Panasonic Viera 103in

The 1080p set measures a whopping 2.4 x 1.5m - and that's before you clip on the stand. Stand in place, the lot weighs 321kg and will consume 1.4kW, Panasonic said.

The contrast ratio is five million to one, and there are all the usual ports one expects at the back and sides, including four HDMIs.

Panasonic starts taking orders for the vast Viera tomorrow. ®
