Panasonic upgrades its petite 103-inch plasma

It's not the 150-inch monster, but what do you expect for only $70,000?


Panasonic may have wowed CES last month with its 150-inch plasma , but that doesn't mean it's given up on its diminutive 103-inch siblings.

The company is upgrading the smaller line, if it can be called that, with a new "10 series" that includes "better wall mount configuration, improved video processing technology, anti-Reflective coating, enhanced wireless presentation capabilities, more versatile media card readability, and a dual HDMI board came as a standard feature," according to SlashGear. There don't appear to be any major changes to the screens themselves, however, which is a little surprising given that they're expected to go for around $70,000.

The TH-103PF10UK does come with a 100,000-hour service agreement, which is more than we can say for the TVs in our house. But we still thought there'd be a few more bells and whistles, copnsidering that only about 15 of the previous TH-103PF9UK "9 series" plasmas were reportedly sold last year with prices averaging around $62,500.
