Imagine watching Monday Night Football on a 105-inch television. Not into football? Then go ahead and substitute your favorite sport, TV show, or movie. Now wipe the drool from your chin before it drips onto your keyboard -- it's unsightly and a bit unsanitary. It's also still a pipe dream for all the but wealthiest, though if you've positioned yourself to afford a $120,000 television, then behold Samsung's 105-inch Curved UHD TV (model UN105S9W).

That's about $50,000 more than what we heard LG will charge for its own version. With a monstrous sized curved 105-inch display that replicates a movie theater experience at home, this is the type of TV we dream about putting in our man- or woman-cave before settling on a more fiscally responsible 65-inch LCD or projector. For the few who can afford such a luxury, however, they'll be treated to a 5120x2160 native resolution with 11 million pixels.

Samsung Curved UHD TV

"We continue to set the bar as the UHD market leader by delivering the best picture quality, design and most immersive viewing experiences in home entertainment," said Joe Stinziano, Executive Vice President, Samsung Electronics America. "The introduction and availability of our new 105-inch Curved UHD TV represents our unremitting efforts to reshape TV, driven by consumers’ passion for entertainment. Made for the premium entertainment lover, the 105-inch Curved UHD TV features the most advanced technology and design, a massive movie-theater style UHD screen and a curve that creates the ultimate cinematic experience."

That's a lot of screen real estate, and if you prefer, you can using Samsung's Quad Screen Multi-Link feature to split the display into four screens to access live TV, streaming video, the web, and more all at once. And don't worry about figuring out how to use the feature -- part of the $120,000 price tag covers "Samsung Elite Service," which entails an in-home vision by Samsung Field Engineers who will explain the features and optimize the display for your environment.

Are you ready to charge this sucker on your no-limit credit card? Hit up Samsung, which is now accepting pre-orders.

Can't wait to get this into my house in the next 10 years after it drops price significantly. Curvature TV is very interesting and I hope it sells enough for other brands to make them. If there's reviews out there, please let me know HotHardware. Would like to know if it's that much of a difference to shell out that money. Hopefully, they'll come out with a smaller version, say 55' because then I'll get really excited for this curved tech that'll be launching for both TV and mobile.

$120,000... Talk about a narrow market.

This is an awesome product, but is it worth it? It would be pretty cool if we could actually buy an affordable 4K tv... Hmm I can already imagine what gaming on that tv would look like :)

4K is a little too much for a television. But the way they described it. Curvaceous

My problem with curved TVs is using it in a living room with multple people. I feel like viewing it at angle would not be an enjoyable experience. Sort of like when 3D first released. 3D was an amazing experience if you were the only one looking at it and were dead center. Moving to an angle reduced the experience greatly.
