LG dishes out the love too.

Amid predictions that 4K will lag in the TV industry, the next 5 years; LG has decided to review its lagging PDP business. Sales of PDPs are uncertain at the moment, but seemed to have increased because they are bargains.

Well, there goes the neighborhood. The last semi-decent plasmas are going buh-bye.

What other PDP manufacturers are there left?

There is a Korean manufacturer called Orion PDP, they make information/advertisement displays. 42" only, 852x480 resolution. But I don't see how plasma can compete against very bright LED-LCD for public info/advertisement, so I don't see them being around much longer.

Let's hope they don't start thinking the same about OLED.

I personally love plasma much better accuracy and saturated color no problem with viewing angles I have two plasmas and one led the LED is bright but not very good off angle. It will be a sad day when plasma is no more

no doubt. that's the last place I'd expect plasmas to still be used for.
if plasma can't make it in home theaters and living rooms, it can't make it anywhere.

hopefully this means they're all in on oled. I think it's proven itself a viable plasma replacement, it's already kicked lcd's butt. so in all honesty, I am a lot more interested in LG oled's, than I've ever been in LG plasma's. they offer a great value, but I'm more in it for the absolute performance. as long as the TV's will last me several years, I can justify paying the money. for me, buying one top end tv for 3-4grand every 5-10yrs is a better plan than buying midrange TV's for 800-1000 every other year.
