Surely it cannot be that long until a 100 or 120" drops in the $5K range? Yes, I realize it's a big jump, but still. Surely they can make a 120" screen, sell it for $5-$6K, and make a sizable profit.
I mean even a 120" is "only" 5' H X 8 1/2' W, so most would have no issue getting one inside their home.
Damn.... I like your optimism and what not but there is NO WAY in HELL that 100 much less 120 inch TVs will be sold for $5-$6k price range I'd say for at least another 10-15 years.
Here's how I see things shaking out - once 8k becomes popular I think that 65 inch screens will become the new 55 inch price wise akin to what 4k TVs did for that size with the 65 being the "popular size for many."
With 8K I think that 75 and 85 will be the popular sizes with the price of 75 inches being around what most 65s sell for today and the 85s selling closer to what 75s are going for today.
I also believe we'll see some rare 90 inchers but those will still be priced very high and out of range for most except for lottery winners.
The thing with Tvs is that price tends to hike up drastically once you get past 65 inches.
For example here are prices currently as of right now on amazon for the Sony 900f
55 inch - 1298
65 - 1798
75 - 3289
85 - 5298
now I'm not doing any kind of advanced math equation here but the eye test tells me that the price differential going from 55 to 65 (gain of ten inches) is less than going from 65 to 75 (same gain of 10 inches) and then from 75 to 85 (same gain of 10)
If going from 65 to 75 was just a $500 increase as it is going from 55 to 65 and then another $500 to go from 75 to 85 I think most people here would jump for joy to be able to grab the 85 sony 900f at $2,798 ;-)
Now I know the z9d has a lot of cool features and what not but the price for that 100 inch version is just ridiculous. And then I think vizio had a 120 inch TV a couple years ago that was like $130,000
soooo I went on that looooong rant to say yea...... not happening any time soon.
