Panasonic's Sold 3000 103-Inch Plasmas...But Not To Home Theater Fanatics
A couple of years back when Panasonic first announced their 103-inch plasma we had dreams of a world of super-immersive home theaters. While that hasn't quite happened yet, the displays did well enough in their first year of sales to justify an upgraded "10 Series", and now we know why. According to a Panasonic press release, the 103-inch monster plasma display has been installed over 3000 times, pretty well all in commercial settings. Popular spots include casinos and nightclubs; Sam's Town Hotel & Gambling Hall in Vegas has installed 15 of them, and Jay-Z's 40/40 club also in Vegas has installed a couple as well. Other popular uses include sports playback, educational, and board room use. It's lack of popularity in the home theater sector is understandable though. After all, the giant plasma does cost upwards of $70, 000.
