You Probably Can't Afford Panasonic's 152-inch Quad-HD 3D Television

Look, we're not here to judge how much money you earn or the size of your bank account. That's not the point. For one or two of you reading this, our headline is all wrong, because you're a 1 percenter and can, in fact, afford to drop £600,000 on a television, which works out to more than $957,000 in U.S. currency. But for the rest of us, Panasonic's 152-inch 4K2K 3D television is out of our league.

That doesn't mean we can't appreciate an ultra-expensive and insanely huge screen. Panasonic actually showed off a prototype at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year, and apparently it's now ready for prime time. According to the U.K.'s Telegraph , Panasonic's display is going on sale at Harrods , which is also launching a technology deparment with exclusive buys from BlackBerry, Fujifilm, and Lowe.

In case you go looking for it, the model number is TH-152UX1W . It's a professional display, though it will sit alongside pricey cameras, loudspeakers, and other high priced electronics at Harrods starting this Thursday. If you plan to pick one up, you might also be interested in a £300,000 ($478,000) Jean Michel Jarre iPad. Just saying.

As for Panasonic's TV, it sports a 4096x2160 resolution and 17:9 aspect ratio. It supports 3D, has multiple inputs, and a 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Oh, and did we mention it's one hundred and fifty two freaking inches?
