That would make an amazing lobby wall showing off photography and such for a fashion firm or national geographic or something.

True--for a relative large company like that, $152K is just a line item in their lobby remodeling budget.

Is this is a repeat or are the numbers(dollars, screensize) a little bit different?

If technology trends over the last ten years are any indicator, the tv will cost about $2000 in the next 5 years or so.

A 25" plasma TV was $25,000 when they first came out.

In three years this tv will be retailing for $800. Well maybe not. But a lot closer to $800 than $100,000+.

Subby missed the better joke by messing up the facts. Amazon Prime shipping is always free.

It would have been better to ask if you could reach the new holiday minimum for Free Super Saver Shipping with a filler box of paper clips on the order.

I'm assuming it's not OLED, which would make Subby correct.

4k LED is to occupy the Kim Kardashians of the world, while OLED is perfected.

Same, well sorta same.  110" would be ridiculous but same as with the last thread about these TVs from a few days ago I'd still buy a few 27-32" 4Ks as monitors once they're built with HDMI 1.4 to handle that much bandwidth at a decent refresh rate.

That's gonna take a pretty big drone to deliver.

It's the fall in prices that gets me. I used to work in electrical retail and can remember the first LCD TVs that we stocked. A 23 inch JVC was something like $5000. A month ago I bought a 40 inch Toshiba LED 1080P set for under $500. Still amazes me. These 110 inch 4K sets will be affordable for the average Joe within a few years, ready for him to watch Ow My Balls! on.

/Think I'll stick with my two 19 inch monitors for now.

I was also impressed with how LED actually reduce the price vs LCD as a technology, we live in a wonderful time for displays.  I think back fondly to the cheering after we dumped our last CRT onto a random neighbor's lawn.  Then scurrying into our house before they saw who it was.

I had two lovely CRT monitors, Sony Trinitrons, that still worked perfectly but you literally could not give them away. Took them down the local dump.
