Kuro was the best of plasma and for many reasons I've never been keen on plasma for it's weaknesses. The inferior performance of LCD was never enough to offset my ambivalence about the flat panel form factor. I love RPTV and still think a properly functioning SXRD is without peer for thousands of dollars less. SED is nothing more than vaporware.
Hard to believe there's NO company who can maintain production in small enough volumes to make it worth their while to fill in the gap left by all the big boys leaving RPTV. I'll cross my fingers and hope for a 73" LaserVue while I still dream of the 70XBR5 SXRD.
