Have you ever seen a decent properly adjusted 720p plasma set ? I doubt it if you have you would know a good 720p plasma can beat most 1080p LCD/LED sets for picture quality any day. whether playing 720p,1080p or Blue Ray
Plasma's are emissive phosphorus displays they actually make the light and color rather than filter white light it's a whole different thing altogether.
If you know you know if you don't you don't and if you prefer LCD/LED that's fine also. Don't get me wrong the more expensive LCD/LED are quite good
but bang for the buck this $499.00 panny is hard to beat.
I have 2 - 2012 TVs a Plasma and LCD both name brand sets while both have good pictures the Plasma is much better especially on blue ray . Plasma/Blue ray makes a very good picture . The 720p/1080p thing isn't that much of an issue with plasma .
As far as 4K it's not prime time yet and content will be scarce and expensive for a good while most of what will be affordably available will be
720p 1080i OTA broadcasts, Sat and Cable and 1080p Blue rays up scaled in the set . For those that can and choose to afford 4K that's fine.
You find any 50" Panny 720p Plasmas NIB for $250.00 let us know there will be plenty of takers right here on AVS including me!
The Soviet people feared the KGB was watching them through their TV's ........or listening to them through their radios, so they kept them turned off often when they wanted privacy .
Now the NSA/ DHS are in fact watching us with our computers cell phones surveillance cameras drones,satellites etc !
