Samsung has a new 110-inch 4K television that’s priced at around $152,000, and you can only buy it if you’re in South Korea, China or the Middle East. This exists on a plane of such excess that is difficult to comprehend. The Korean company paraded a number of awfully expensive TVs around CES earlier this year, but it saved the best (worst) for last. This is well over what most humans make after years of work. This exists because it can.
While there’s a severe lack of content for 4K sets, the ultra-HD market will supposedly take off in 2014, according to industry watchers. As if cable providers will be cool with consumers suddenly streaming content with four times the resolution of 1080p.
Can’t afford something so incredibly decedent? Many Amazon “buyers” have come up with some very creative ways of acquiring such cutting edge technology—and that was for the 85-inch model. But why settle for an 85-inch set when you can get one that’s 110 inches? Exactly. I can’t wait until someone records a YouTube drop test video.
