Bang & Olufsen, purveyors of interesting-looking and extremely overpriced electronics, have unveiled an 85-inch 3DTV. The price? A whopping $85,000. That's $1,000 per inch.
By that pricing, a 30-inch TV would set you back $30,000. Of course, the price goes up exponentially as the size gets bigger, but still, this is absurd. What do you get for that price? A pretty standard-looking 3D plasma that's tricked out with a triangular BeoLab 10 center channel speaker and "a motorized stand that lowers it when you're not watching." Cool?
Look, if you wanna spend that much on a TV, far be it from me to tell you not to. But for that kind of scratch you could probably snag a Panasonic 2D plasma in the 100- to 150-inch range, and really, isn't size more important than hopping on the 3D bandwagon?
