LG Makes a Case for Uber Expensive Ultra HD TVs
Still, it's 84 inches of screen real estate, it has built-in Internet functionality making it "Smart," and it supports 3D, so the 4K resolution (3840x2160) isn't the only thing going for it. Not only that, LG can counter my argument with over 6 million reasons why this TV belongs on the market.
In the past five months of availability, LG has sold 300 of those 84-inch Ultra HD TV sets, which works out to 60 early adopters per month, a Korean newspaper reports. More importantly, at the $22,000 asking price, that translates into $6.6 million in sales. That's a lot of cash, and it's not like LG's 4K set is the only game in town, though clearly it's emerging as the most popular. For how long depends on when competing TV makers get the memo that there's a market for these things.
