With the Panasonic ST50 out with great picture, what do we think the ST100 equivelency will be?

Do you think it will start to peak? The next years plasma coming in with very little improvements?

In five years, OLED may be the big thing taking over...

We'll probably be seeing the last high-end plasmas ever in about 5 years. They will be marginally better than this year's TVs. Of course, LCDs aren't much improving either. The LCD of 2017 will be (a) not much better than 2012's model and (b) not much different from 2022's.

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working. (Oh, and plasma didn't die because of logistics problems, nor does OLED ship in big boxes because it comes from Korea.)

I would definitely expect 4K sets which should equate to a 4 MP camera, as opposed to the 2MP camera resolution of today's 1080p sets. I can only hope that plasmas will still be around and not killed off to energy saving national legislation.

Absolute blacks and 4k is a minimum requirement for me. Oled will probably speed the compitition up. At least that is what I want to happen.
