CES 2013: Westinghouse Wants to Sell You a $300,000 4K TV – You In?

At any given CES, you’re sure to hear the same handful of buzzwords over, and over, and over. This year, “4K” is one of those. It’s not only TV companies that are touting it either, but rather any company that could possibly fit the super-small buzzword in somewhere. Even GIGABYTE has gotten in on the action, announcing that its latest dual-Thunderbolt motherboards can support the resolution. If this CES is any hint to things, “4K” isn’t going away.
As you’d expect, many TV vendors at the event are showing off their own models, but it’s Westinghouse’s 110-inch offering that really stands out. For starters, the screen is simply massive – so big, you may not even realize someone is walking in front of it (alright, that might be a slight exaggeration).
What will one of these bad boys cost you? Only a cool $300,000. Any way you look at it, $300K is an obscene amount of money, especially from a company like Westinghouse which doesn’t exactly bleed quality like some other top-brands. But regardless, if you’re rich, already own a Ferrari and just happen to need 4K, here’s your option. Of course, it might be useful for anyone to actually hold off until 4K content is readily available, because by that time, pricing will be far more modest.
