During CES, we talked a bit about LG’s new Laser TV, a new short-throw projector combined with a 100-inch screen. Despite the fact that it’s a projection system, it was still incredibly cool that it can project such a large and bright image from only 22-inches away from the scren. There were a couple things about the Laser TV that we didn’t know when it was announced during CES. Those two important tidbits of information including how much it would cost and when you could buy it.

LG has finally announced those two bits of info, and while the release date is almost upon us, sadly the price is bad news. I guess we should’ve expected anything with lasers to be expensive. The LG Laser TV will ship this April for $8,999 (USD). For that kind of money, it sure would be nice if it supported 4K resolution, but it’s “only” 1080p.

For that much money you get a 100-inch screen, the ultra short throw projector, and the projector laser illumination system with a lifespan of 25,000 hours. At least that means you won’t be replacing bulbs for a few hundred dollars a pop every few thousand hours of use as you would with a traditional projector. The projector also has integrated 20-watt speakers, Intel Wireless Display and Wi-Fi Direct capabilities. The projector also has a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and three HDMI inputs.
