How much does your TV cost? Most people usually go to stores, whether physical or online, look for the best deals on affordable TVs with the latest features, buy them, and then have them delivered to their homes. Since people have different needs when it comes to what they want from their TVs, the prices of their TVs will vary, but not with a huge margin. However, the above does not apply to millionaires and billionaires because people in these two prestigious classes hardly care about the cost of things, since they know so well that they can afford whatever it is they want and more.
It is interesting just how human beings love to compare and contrast, and then go for the "better" option regardless of how futile the difference might be. When you were growing up, you probably never noticed that there was anything wrong with your TV, until you saw your neighbour's bigger or clearer one. You would be surprised to learn that most of the new features that TVs are coming with do not improve the viewer's quality of life in any way; the manufacturers just come up with solutions to problems we hardly realized we had.
What usually drives up the cost of a TV is the size of the screen, its resolution, its smarts, the available ports, its refresh rate, and display features, among other very important specs. However, even if your TV has all the above, it should not cost anything like the following TVs, right?

3 Stuart Hughes Prestige HD Supreme Edition: $1.5 million
2 The Titan Zeus: $1.6 million
1 Stuart Hughes Prestige HD Supreme Rose Edition: $2.25 million
The company 'Stuart Hughes' has made a deliberate effort to stay at the top of this list, and their way of remaining at the top is adding precious stones that are numerous times more expensive than the TV itself. The Stuart Hughes Prestige HD Supreme Rose Edition is your average high-end 55-inch HD TV with an outer frame that is unbelievably expensive. This TV's frame is made out of 28 kilograms of solid 18-carat rose gold, and it has 72 round cut 1 carat diamonds studded all over, with the remaining spaces filled Amethyst and Sunstone. In addition, the TV's inner bezel is made up of hand-stitched alligator skin, an addition that also pushes the cost of the TV even higher. This TV goes for a whopping $2.25 million, an amount that is unreasonably high for a TV.
