Samsung Releases 70" HDTV for Consumers

So there are pretty damn big TVs out there, 60-inch, 70-inch, and hell, even a 103 incher. Nobody in their right mind is going to own one of these except celebrities. Samsung has announced today the addition of three 70-inch TVs designed for the "consumer market." These LCD TVs will support full 1080p high definition.

Okay Samsung, take a hint. If you really wanted to develop a 70-inch LCD TV for the consumer market, then drop all of the goodies that will skyrocket the price of the machine. The inclusion of 1080p, a 180 degree viewing angle, 8ms response time and 2,000:1 contrast ratio will likely make this LCD well over the price range of the majority of average consumers. At least it is an LCD rather than plasma.
