Panasonic's Newest "Bargain" 103-inch Plasma

Okay, not really a bargain. The behemoth retails for about $50,000. However, consider that the price has dropped by $20,000. Maybe rich people look for bargains too. Wouldn't know.

This isn't just about a price cut. The Viera TH-103PZ800 has updated features. This big-screen beauty has a contrast ratio of 10,000:1, a built-in SD port and four HDMI ports. It features Deep Color and x.v.Color support.

Want one?

Before you whip out the plastic, you might need to whip out your passport first. (Can you actually charge $50,000 on a credit card? Really?) Orders can be placed, but it's only available in Japan.

I guess you can spend the money you've saved with the price cut to pay to have someone ship it over from Japan. -Leslie Shapiro
