Maybe LG will continue on but it will be more of the same budget sets. I don't see why Panasonic would come back unless that bat eyed CEO gets the boot, that guy grimaced any time someone mentions television and its well known he does not like plasma.

If its cheaper, they will make it.

It might be called LED 1080p but don't be fooled underneath its rocking a pentile plasma tongue.gif

Pentile is a disaster.

LG, maybe. Samsung, a lot less optimistic. Reading through news, at least LG is saying they will have far more difficult time next year while Samsung is more pessimistic and saying there is no clear future for plasmas next year.

I do not think many people here are willing to buy an OLED yet, especially the ones who own top of the line plasma's already. No reason to drop all that money down on a tech that hasn't proven itself yet. Thank you though for taking part in their testing team though. Although, they should be paying you instead of you paying them. biggrin.gif

The article posted in this thread also doesn't tell me why I would want to run out today and replace my plasma with an OLED TV. Actually, it confirms many of us are perfect righ where we are.

I think videophiles are willing, it's the tech that isn't ready.

That's all well and good, but I assure you that the LG's infinite contrast ratio has me itching to replace my ZT60 with a 77" OLED as soon as I win the lottery or inherit a fortune. biggrin.gif The motion blur afflicted by GEN 1 of OLED TV is so natural as to not be a downer when I take the pros with the cons. It's amazing to me how so many expect perfection from the first venture of a technology right out the gate. The new sets will have even better motion handling, so let's be careful with the brash write-offs.

That is why I said, 'yet'....Of course when the kinks get worked out videophiles will look towards OLED. But remember, videophiles are not enough to keep a product going as proven by the death of plasma's. LG or anyone else will need to make OLED successful with the average consumer and the average consumer won't just buy a TV because it has good black levels. They are not going to spend $4,000 on a 1080p 55" TV. The average consumer doesn't see anything wrong with edge lit LED's. They think it is the greatest TV tech since sliced bread.

When you're as used to CRT as I am, LED looks might pretty by comparison wink.gif. I think that I saw an OLED at my local Best Buy a while ago, though maybe I'm misremembering. I was wondering if they still had any plasma, but I didn't see one.

Depends on CRTs and LCDs. For example, I would never put any IPS LCDs above my Sony BVM and FW900. The IPS is still better than the Sony Wega FS120 I'm using though.

Samsung is still manufacturing the 2013 models for 2014. Mainly the F4500 and F5300, with perhaps a few F8500s. Only one new model, the H5000. So it does not sound that promising for 2015 unless something changes. But the budget Samsungs are real good deals right now. But perhaps LG may hang in there a bit longer.

I just received my H5000 today and so far I'm impressed. Awesome bang for the buck. Most likely this is the last plasma I'll buy but not because I don't want another. Sad, really.

I blame it all on the uneducated sales person and marketing team for this trend to happen. I was not a videophile but one look at a Plasma, side by side with an LED and I was sold on the Plasma, no matter what the salesman was telling me. 

 

It's really sad that they are killing Plasma's everywhere. I hope Samsung and LG produce a few more stunning Plasma's and educate their sales team on the advantages of Plasma.

I have a 60F5300 with the same screen door effect close up. I almost makes me cry that I didn't get the 64 inch [H5000] even though it would be too big. But at least my current one, replaces my crappy overhot Panasonic TC-P50UT50. Having no 3D is not a step down for Plasma TVs, I think.

let's put things in perspective. 1G oled kicks the 'poop' out of 1G plasma and 1G LCD(heck even 1G LED/LCD)... I just hope oled makes it over the hump of being too expensive, too new, and too small. my concern is it doesn't look like most manufacturers actually want this to happen. when plasma came out, they did everything they could to drop CRT it seemed. when LED's came out, they turned their backs on plasma and now we are seeing the end of that as well. but now that oled is finally here, they seem to be pushing harder than ever for LED again. trying to revamp it with curved screens, UHD, even bringing back FALD. those are not signs of manufacturers that want OLED to be successful. and unfortunately, I think what the manufacturers want plays a much larger role than what consumers want.

Displays: Samsung PN64F8500/JVC X35

No one but LG has a chance in hell in the near-term to being profitable when it comes to OLED TV, so of course their competition has no interest in seeing it succeed.

They just lowered the price of their 55" OLED to $3999, so I guess they are starting to realize the efficiencies they spoke of.
