When used in a corporate context, the versatility of the Samsung FP-T6374 -- it's ability to connect to many different external devices -- would be an advantage.
For consumers the US$7,500 price tag is not a figure to be sneezed at.
But when you consider that it's a 63-inch plasma display that includes such a broad range of features and the video quality (except when it comes from a PC) compelling, the FP-T6374 certainly worth considering if you're up for a big ticket purchase.
Another point to factor in when mulling over price is that this model incorporates power-saving technology.
Essentially, a light sensor helps you adjust to one of three brightness levels, while also being able to detect changes in the light and adjust the brightness on the fly.
Samsung claims this feature can reduce power consumption by up to 25 percent, which is pretty substantial when you consider how much power a plasma display of that size would typically suck up.
As they teach you in business school these days, you need to focus on total cost of ownership.
