Earlier this year, Samsung unveiled a behemoth at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas: a 105-inch TV with a curved, 4K display. On Tuesday, it unveiled the equally jaw-dropping price tag: $120,000. What do you get for your money? A curved display that promises four times the resolution of a standard HDTV and a better field of view. Plus, it's a smart TV, so you can enter "What else could I have purchased for $120,000?" into your Web browser. For those looking for a relative bargain, LG sells its own 105-inch, curved 4K TV for only $70,000. While they certainly look nice, today's 4K (also referred to as Ultra HD) TVs don't have a lot of 4K content to display, meaning early adopters will have to wait awhile to watch their favorite TV shows and movies in their full glory.
