Samsung's Truly Thin Flat Panel TV

I'm not truly an addict to TV like the average American, but after seeing this on electro^plankton, I felt compelled to tell you all. Samsung has just introduced a truly thin, 12mm thick 17" flat screen TV. (Is that some sort of contradiction?) Not only is it thin, but it packs some great specs: a 1000:1 aspect ratio; a 170ยบ viewing angle; a brightness of 400 candle power; and a screen response time of .01ms. Although its performance is quite impressive, I'm not sure how many US homes would be willing to spend the money on a 17" TV, if this ever comes here.
