However, they have already discontinued the PDP4280HD and PDP5080HD both 720p models as with the Elite PRO 950HD. Pioneer will concentrate on 1080p plasma's for now. They will have LCD's some time next year in 37" and larger.
Actually they officially announced it in Japan yesterday. They're dropping Plasma production. Their stock dropped significantly at the announcement.
