Actually I dont think its a fair example,, reason being,, plasma's over the years have been losing popularity in favor of LCD.
Most consumers buy LCD's these days and for the last few years they have been the favorite of the mass'es.
The 65" Panny S2 plasma I own sold for as little as $1700.00 at times, and it has sold very well in spite of the fact that its a plasma.
If there was, or when there is,, a $1700.00 price tag for a 65" LCD they will fly off the shelfs taking into consideration that LCD is far more popular than plasma.
Even using myself as an example,, I did not buy my 65" plasma for a very long time because I prefure LCD over plasma,,, but I just got tired of waiting for a large screen LCD to come down in price.. so in the end I said screw it, and bought a 65" plasma in spite of the fact it was plasma,,, I just wanted a bigger screen size.
With that being said, I must give props to my 65" Panny plasma,,, its got a killer picture and I am not un-happy with it in any way,,,, do I wish I would have been able to get a full backlit LED for the same price I paid for my 65" plasma,,, yes I do, but until the price of large full backlit LED's comes down I will remain very happy with my current 65 incher,,,,,, and of course my 55" LED in the other room still gets my love.
