Unless you spend your time traipsing round consumer electronics shows like we do you probably won’t have experienced the sheer delight of viewing images on a 102inch plasma screen (OK we exaggerate ever so slightly). You might not even be aware of the intense schoolboy rivalry between Samsung and LG which means that at each show one of the companies tries to outdo the other by making its screen one inch bigger than the other – the sort of 21st century equivalent of New York’s Chrysler Building v The Empire State.
Anyway, now’s the chance for all UK readers to see what all the fuss is about by heading down to Harrods to check out LG’s 102 inch plasma. Offering full HD resolution at 1920 x 1080 resolution, LG’s big beast will be displayed in the Brompton window of Harrods until May 29th. Also on display in the other windows will be LG’s recently launched chocolate phone, an eco-friendly steam washing machine and LG’s comparitively weeny 42PX5 42 inch plasma – Home Cinema Choice’s plasma TV of the year.
