Now, since I've maintained that this isn't a scientific survey from the very start, I never maintained we can extract hard numbers.
Still, we CAN deduce some reasonable conclusions, and NONE of them are that PDP voters are voting for PDPs for any other reason other than they offer better performance.
Still though, some insist on trying to prove something that there exists no evidence for.
As for the Hyundai vs BMW analogy, it served it's purpose well, two just missed it. It has nothing to do with cost vs cost...it simply was comparing sales vs performance...that's an imperative distinction to note.
The front wheel drive vs rear wheel was the "methodology/tecnology" analogy, and it ALSO is valid.
The reasons why nearly all critics recognize PDP as the superior tech are simple: they offer more benefits over LCD than vice versa, including superior black levels, no clouding, no flashlighting, superior motion resolution, and better off axis viewing.
LCDs can get brighter, and SOME models are better in extremely bright rooms.
About as straightforward as one can imagine.
But, some will continue to make invalid contentions that hav nothing to do with image superiority and always somehow lean on meaningless (to this poll anyways) points revolving around what the general public purchases, who makes more of what tech, and other non-essential jibberish.
I still laugh at the thought of conducting this identical poll within any "enthusiast" avenue anyone here would like, including installers, print and online media.
I once again would guarantee you the results would mirro/nearly mirror these.
Again prolly a compete coincidence or MORE bias unrepresentative of what enthusiats think offers the superior image.
You simply cannot make this stuff up, LOL.
