If size does matter, being too big can get you laughed at, too.
Such is the case with Samsung’s 105-inch curved UHD TV. With a price tag approaching $120,000 — the cost of a few cars or a small house in most ZIP codes — the reviews on Amazon are pure comedy gold.
A visit to Amazon’s listing for the gigantic TV, which includes FREE Prime shipping, by the way — might leave you disappointed at first because the item is not in stock. But scroll through the reviews and you will find the many hilarious ways shoppers express sticker shock.

The picture is so realistic that I was able to step inside the TV and now I live in there like the Kardashians.

I mean, you’re talking at least $10 a ticket just to get in. And you go to the movies… what… 12,000 times a year? After one year, that is money in your pocket!”

Samsung did not immediately return an email with a request for comment.
