While many analysts agree that the high-definition technologies of cathode-ray tube monitors are better than other formats, the thinner versions always get plenty of buzz.
Many attendees found themselves mesmerized by the 102-inch plasma behemoth in the Samsung booth, which the company claimed to be "the biggest TV" in the world.
On a practical level, it's a long way off. It's not in production yet, and company reps wouldn't disclose a price. Samsung's 80-inch model will reportedly sell for about $45,000 or more.
LG Electronics had a dueling sign, touting its 71-inch plasma with full high-definition resolution as the world's largest screen that could actually be purchased today for $75,000.
Overall, analysts say it's going to take increased volume and a lower cost of manufacturing these plasmas to force prices to drop at a faster rate.
day is coming when they're more affordable, but as one editor put it:
Don't expect to buy a medium-sized plasma screen for under $1,000 for
quite a while.
