If you do fall into the above mentioned category, the prospects of this list will excite you.

1. Panasonic TH152UX1W: $500,000
This mammoth of a TV has a host of special features. First, we have to address the elephant in the room(quite literally), the size. It has a 152 inch TV screen which in layman’s terms means that it can make any other TV look tiny. Secondly, it boasts of 4k resolution and is 3D enabled and is powered by Panasonic’s ‘professional quality engine’.

3. Acapella Sphaeron Excalibur: Approx. $4,50,000
