I was just thinking about this, once plasma's are made at a 1/2" thick screen, will there really be anything better. Ya maybe a better picture by a tad or paper thin but what really will be gained? and for what added cost? will it be worth it? ( probably not )

Here is a list of things they can do -

1 Make fast picture movements smoother / faster refresh or whatever term should be used
2 Make them buzz less
3 Make them MUCH MUCH bigger at a lower price
4 Make them brighter
5 Make them more energy efficient

Those are my immediate concerns

Things they can do in a couple of years if they get those fixable things I listed above resolved-

1 Make them thinner
2 Make them lighter
3 Make them have built in quad upscalers and 4 times the resolution.
4 Build in wireless HDMI 3.x

They still have a hard time competing with my rear projection CRT for picture quality so I think they have a good ways to go.

Ideally I'd like to re-live the trip I never took to CES 2007 after Canon and Toshiba cancelled the SED display due to legal difficulties with Nano-Proprietary.

Now that those problems are settled, Canon is free to display SED TV again. However, as CES starts in one month, it may be too late for Canon to do it this year.

I remember the first time I saw SED (for some reason I thought it was 2006) - can't remember what year it was but it was very impressive even though the screens were very small and 720p. I was really hoping we'd see some massive changes in that technology.

I'd also love to see things like OLED improve but so many screens are still relatively small compared to what RPTV offered us for nearly a decade ago.

OK - one week to go. I'm hoping we see some absurdly large TV's this year. No more of those panty waste 60's and 65's (like I currently have).

Absurdly large TV = absurdly high prices. Not a good recipe in this economic environment

Eggypants,

There was a time when a 50" plasma was 20,000 dollars. Production costs have come down. I'm not saying an 80" TV will cost $5K but it's time they started making larger TV's if they want those of us who already have high definition TV's to buy something to replace them. Repeating the same technology isn't going to help sales in a tough economy either.

The number of people that want 80" is insignificant

Eggypants,

Thanks for conducting the survey - mind sharing your results with the public?

OK - I posted info about larger screens in the 10G plasma post - for both Panasonic and Pioneer - no new info on Toshiba or SOny although Sharp clearly sees the market as they were showing off a concept 82" screen - no scheduled release - quad resolution- the Sharp rep says it is a size they have a lot of interest in.

Also I checked out the new Sony 240 Hz and while it some ways it was an improvement I didn't think overall the PQ was as good as the Kuro and the size was puny.
