If you’re filthy rich — filthy, stinkin’, Scrooge McDuck rich — and you really like very big TVs, this one’s for you.
Say hello to a TV called C Seed 262, quite possibly the largest (and therefore best) home television ever produced.
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, that 262 in the name refers to its size. At a mind-blowing 262 inches, this bad boy will make your 55-incher look like a child’s toy by comparison.
Wondering how much a 262-inch TV weighs?
Try 1,763 pounds. Nearly a ton.
Picture isn’t everything when it comes to TVs. You also need it to sound good. But don’t worry, they’ve got it covered with a whopping amount of ten integrated speakers, giving you the kind of surround sound you’d usually only find in the cinema.
An investment like this needs adequate protection. Again, they’ve got it covered. The TV is protected by a fabric cover, which can be raised and lowered with a remote. Think of it as the world’s coolest garage door opener.
So, how much will the C Seed 262 set you back? We’ll tell you, but make sure you’re sitting down first.
The 262-inch work of technological art will cost you . . . about $539,000.
Yes, you read that correctly. Over half-a-million dollars.
That’s just for the TV. You need it to be installed? Time to fork out another $35,000-$40,000.
Add it up, and we’re looking at nearly $600,000.
Sure, you could get a nice home for that price, but a nice home won’t let you watch every episode of Game of Thrones from your own persona cinema, will it? Didn’t think so.
Like any good business, C Seed knows their target market. Their press release specifically mentions prospective buyer’s mansions:
“enjoy a viewing experience that up to now was simply unavailable outside a private movie theatre in a remote corner of your mansion” — the price isn’t that surprising.
You can purchase the C Seed 262 right now. Maybe give it a look. That is, if you’re not too busy swimming in your vault of gold coins.
