Sony's wafer thin 11-inch XEL-1 television stole the show at CES 2008. At just 1/8th inch thick, Sony's newest supermodel sets the trend that thin is definitely in. The XEL-1 uses a new panel technology called OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode), which offers amazing picture quality. But all this sex appeal comes at a pretty steep price. How about $2,500? That comes out to $227 per diagonal inch. That's about 10 times the price per inch that you would expect to pay for today's current Plasma's and LCD's. As with all new technology the price will eventually drop as manufacturing techniques are perfected and material costs are lowered.
Pros: Super Sexy, Wafer Thin, Amazing Color & Contrast
Cons: More Expensive Than Manhattan Real Estate
List Price: $2,500.00
