Size matters! (TV)

ok, so i found the largest tv which seems to be available in CH

http://www.toppreise.ch/prod_219658.html

20K for a 72"??? no chance! I found an 80" that is more in the normal price range but would involve shipping and tax

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005LYRYNG/...SIN=B005LYRYNG

Does anyone know of a bigger one? only found larger ones that have been exhibited but only made to order so far too expensive. Also, will i have any problems in bringing a USA tv here except for having to get the electrical plug changed?

it appears the TV is not auto voltage sensing so you would need a transformer

Re: Size matters! (TV)

I did think of a beamer, you can get really good ones for cheaper than the tv's.

The old ones with the bulb had a relatively short life and bulbs were expensive to change. Not sure what the new HD ones are like for life though, do you?

Also, how are they in a sunlit room? The old ones were terrible compared to tv's. Does the projection gradually fade as the light gets old like previous versions?

Re: Size matters! (TV)

Forgot to mention you have to use the coupon code from the dealhack website. It's COUPON CODE: VHB50764

It'll take 3000 off the price

16 x 2W speakers An audiophile is going to have to explain that one to me... 2W seems very low.

i actually tried it, they do ship but their online order system is dodgy. If you called them and paid with credit card they would do it. unfortunately my card is maxed
