Having a diagonal screen length of 100 inches (250 centimeters), the ability to render 1.07 billion different hues at a 3000:1 contrast ratio at full 1080p HDTV, a 180° viewing angle and a 5ms response time, the television certainly deserved the world record it got for being the largest LCD television. LG has officially decided to mass produce the behemoth. LG has found that the manufacturing cost of one giant HDTV is 150,000 dollars, and has not commented on how much each set will retail for.

Seriously, LCD provides the absolute worst picture quality out of all the competing HD technologies. Why the hell are people still investing so much money into these things.

I like DLP's the best over LCD's and Plasmas. But for now, CRT's still produce the best black pictures and images.

Well, you have to be a certain amount of feet away from the TV. On my 50" Samsung DLP 1920x1080P, it's recommended to be at least 8 feet or farther.

Because they are also the cheapest to produce in large size, and cheapest for the consumer in large sizes. Most people can't tell the difference unless you are sitting 2 feet away from the TV, which doesn't happen to much when you have a TV 50inches+.

I'll take an LCD over a projection or plasma any day.
