My 50 is now over 7yrs old & people still compliment me on this set's picture - and several of them have the latest LCD/LED sets.
Now that Panasonic is out of plasma and Samsung will be done next year I think LG is the only one left. There are two reasons - first, plasmas are more costly to manufacture and (supposedly) don't lend themselves to the new 4k technology coming out.
Too bad since these sets (and the Pioneer Kuros/Elites before them) pretty much became the standard against which all modern TV's are measured.
Should've bought that last Panasonic they made - absolutely incredible picture quality.
