The Panasonic TH-152UX1 is probably the next best thing to watching a 3D movie in a theater. At 152 inches, this 11 foot by 6 foot giant dwarfs just about every existing 3D TV on the market. This flat screen's 4,096x2,160 resolution also means it can deliver four times the clarity of a regular full-HD panel coupled with a superb 5 million:1 native contrast for rich inky blacks.

Shipments will start in the Japanese and American markets in autumn this year. The only problem we foresee is that this Panasonic is an industrial plasma display meant for digital signages and business presentations, hence it lacks "consumerish" HDMI inputs to pair with your 3D Blu-ray player. So this is one mammoth you can't easily purchase from a neighborhood electronics store, although there are well-heeled users who own Panasonic's 103-inch display for their homes, according to one insider.
