I hear, "Price go down -- price go down" Wonder why Kuro disappeared? I remember looking at Panasonic years back watching a football game. Teams lined up and all I saw was pixels firing off around still players. Watching credits scroll up the screen. Stop, go, stop, go as the wonderfully motioned credits jumped. As years past and even this year. 55VT50.... home screen of a Sony bluray player. The blue stream across the TV and pans out on the right side. I am looking at it and I see blue pixels firing at random to a still image. "Guess they didn't figure that one out yet"
You never see any detail in shadowed areas. "Always trying for the black levels" shadow = black even though there is content in there to be seen in the plasma world.
Even though plasma has been dead for years because the plasma buyers don't want to pay for any adequate advancements (this goes for consumers in general). The power consumption was finally the kick out the door.
You can't pitch black the screen anymore and blast the display at full blast. Cook a egg on the TV top. They have been going back to the original gray and green screens.
Panasonic invested in making a plant to make "cupcakes (plasma)" and didn't want to rearrange to "krumpets(LCD)" while the whole time saying "no reason to go to krumpets when cupcakes are the best?" "Cheaper?" "Remember Elite? Which we were never? They had some water in their towel and literally squeezed every little drop out of it that they could. I give my hat off that it lasted this long and that alone. Finally, can we move from... what's the difference between plasma and LCD/LED?
I tried to read this, but it proved too painful. I actually have no idea what you're saying.
