Bang and Olufsen has unveiled a massive 55.5-inch LCD display with LED backlighting named the BeoVision 7-55. It's got lots of goodies and some impressive specs, but it costs a small fortune. All worth it in the name of quality home entertainment?

The BeoVision 7-55 is a home entertainment system in itself, with an integrated Blu-ray and DVD player (hidden in an aluminum drawer), and it could stand on its own or be mounted to a wall.

Some quick specs on the ginormous BeoVision 7-55:

  • 1920x1080 resolution
  • 4,000:1 static contrast ratio
  • 6ms response time
  • 500 cd/m2 brightness
  • 16.7 million color support
  • Input formats: 480p/i, 576p/i, 720p, 1080i & 1080p (50, 60 & 24p)

How much will it cost you to install one of these in your living room? $18,700. But just imagine having something like this to watch the Olympic Games. You'd probably think you're right there on the ice in Vancouver. One can dream...
