Osaka (Japan) - Over the last 12 months, a whopping 15 of the world's largest commercially available TV were sold, five of which went to one customer in the Middle East.

Panasonic's ground breaking 103-inch plasma hit the market in 2006 for around $80,000. Near the end of the year, it dropped down to under $50,000. A total of 15 of the sets made their way to individual consumers last year.

The TH-103PF9UK ships to the US, Europe, and Japan, although five of the 15 units were sold to a man in the Middle East, according to a report in Commercial Times.
