If you buy this $30,000 85-inch plasma, I will come to your house and watch it

I know plasma is on the way out — or rather, I hear, since I’m not a big TV guy. But man, it’s got solid picture and they can make ’em nice and big. For some people that’s all that matters. And by some people I mean rich people.

Who else but the fabulously rich would buy this fabulously large TV? I mean, you can get a serious projector for a few grand that’ll put up an image that big — but a plasma will have a better picture… especially one that costs thirty grand.

It’s 74″x42″x4″ (nice and thin!) and weighs a gossamer 260 pounds. The TH-85PF12U should be coming out next month.
