Default Another Manufacturer Drops Plasma (240HZ LED LCD to replace VIZO Plasma's)

"Whether the rumors that Pioneer plans to pull out of the plasma TV business prove true or not, one other maker of flat panel TVs has left plasma behind: Vizio."

"As with the majority of its competitors, Vizio will concentrate on adding features to its line of LCD sets. Its first LED-backlit LCD TV will come to market this July, a $1,999 55-inch model that also features 240Hz technology."

As sad as this sounds, I think Plasma will be all but nearly (if not completely) pushed out of the market by the time the economy recovers... The writing is already on the wall for DLP RPTV (sad). It's pretty clear that LCD will be the dominant TV tech moving forward.

While I dont think Vizio made a good plasma set, it sucks to see vendors moving away from plasma sets. I for one will like plasma a whole lot better than LCD.

Too bad it's not technologically up to the standard of Plasma yet.

The Pioneer dropout is all but confirmed...which leaves Panasonic, LG and Samsung the remaining flag-bearers. I'd only care about Panasonic's displays in the realm of plasma, or whoever gets to utilize Kuro technology.

absurd..plasma looks better..costs less...so economy issues is more a problem for lcds...a panny 720p tv will blow away any lcd..no judder..no off angle problems..no issues whatsoever..nada..name one lcd without issues..I dare you...sounds like blu vs hd dvd again..but not this time boys..plasma is here to stay......

Vizio..we should worry about what Vizio does....now that's funny..as I previously posted..if Sony had to stop production of their 240hz xbr7's cause they were so bad..how can Vizio do it better...

I agree with gene. The only thing that the LCD's best the Plasmas on is peak brightness. Even today's plasmas are almost bright enough for many conditions as it is, though.

Too bad that companies are deciding to shy away from plasmas. It has such potential to be even better, too.

Power utilization, heat output, weight, IR/Burn in very nearly impossible as opposed to being a traditional drawback. Not trying to say plasma's suck, I like them fine and if I had the cash there's a decent chance I might be a Kuro owner. But trying to pretend like LCD has no real advantages is just plain silly.
