Re: LCD vs Plasma
That's strange, because at CES 2010 Samsung was promoting plasma heavily, with demos demonstrating the energy efficiency benefit of their new plasmas and their reps were saying that plasma was the way to go for the best possible image quality except for brightly lit areas.
Panasonic now has Kuro technololy and recommend plasm over LCD for best image quality as well.
Are you sure they intend to discontinue this superior technology?
OLED was hardly an issue at CES, at least I didn't see any. I think it it years away from reality in any significant size and may never make it to market, similar to SED from Canon/Toshiba, which has totally left the scene.
