Optoma HDBV3100 Bigvizion: 100 Inches, In-Wall

Now here's a really big screen. Projector maker Optoma introduced its HDBV3100 Bigvizion, a 100-inch 1080p DLP rear-projection HDTV that the company suggests you mount inside the wall. That better be a fairly thick wall because it requires 30 inches of depth. It's got all the usual suspects for connectivity including HDMI, it uses the latest DarkChip 3 DLP, and Optoma claims it has a contrast ratio of 10,000:1. Get together some of your strongest friends to install it, though—this sucker's shipping weight is 750 pounds.

The Bigvizion's $20,000 price tag is not cheap, but it'll cost you a lot less than that 103-inch Panasonic plasma display, and even though the Panasonic behemoth is three inches larger, it only has a 3000:1 contrast ratio and takes 45 minutes just to warm up.
