Glad to see that the thread has been moved to this forum, where all the LCDemons and Plasmaniacs can duke it out at a neutral venue.
Now folks, the next gen of plasmas, from Pioneer, Panasonic, and others are going to make it very interesting, and will start to reclaim market share with vastly improved product lines. Can you say ten lumen, boys and girls?. By this time in 2008 you will be able to purchase a 42inch 1080P Plasma, with blacks as deep as this year's Kuro line, that will have all the brightness levels you will need, and they will also be super energy efficient, and very low priced. You will be able to purchase one for less than $1,000.00. That is just the start. Large 4000P resolution panels are in the works, as are 20inch 1080P panels that will use less than 70W.http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...2#post11592012
Off course you will be able to watch them, in bright or dark rooms, have the advantage of superior off axis viewing, and they will cost far less.
I sure hope that the LCD producers have counter moves up their sleeves, because competition is a win win for us consumers. The more agressive the competition, the faster we get better products at reasonable prices.
PS. More 10 lumen discussion and information.http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...8#post11303508
