From a small, portable Blu-ray player...to this. Samsung's 65-inch UN65C8000, full HD 3D LED display, is ready to ship to over-sized living rooms today.

The TV behemoth is an ultra-thin display with a 240Hz refresh rate, a 8,000,000:1 contrast ratio, a built-in 3D processor, dimming technology, Wi-Fi, and support for Samsung Apps. Samsung suggests using the UN65C8000 as one big video phone if that fits your fancy. It's like the person on the other line is almost there!

Hope you have $5,999.99 lying around as this is one pricey television set.
