Why there are no manufactures making a 70" plasma?

Have a SAMSUNG 58" plasma and its time to upgrade to 70",but all I can find are LCD/LED.

$ and never going to see one on the mass consumer market. There have been a few large screen Panasonic models available over the past few years - niche market and very expensive. Learn to be happy with 64" or 65".

I too wanted a 70" plasma, but never has nor ever will happen. One suggestion to optimize the size of 65": make sure your seating distance is not too far. I'm sitting about 9 feet back and this does help. You could even sit 8 feet back. Sometimes people with displays of this size are sitting 11 or 12 feet or more feet back and it really hurts their field of view not too mention they are seeing less than 1080p resolution.

Zenith made a gigantic 71" consumer model Plasma around 2003-2004 (it was over $10,000 at Ken Crane's TV) so it can be done

I agree. If you are looking for a very large PDP display you need to go to the commercial market and have a really big wallet. Eighty five inches and above:

It was an LG panel.


LG also released a gold plated 71 inch 1080p plasma. IIRC it was the largest 1080p display back then (and one of the first 1080p plasmas.)


The electronics in it were ancient compared to new plasmas. It had something like dual power boards from a 50" plasma, plus 30-chip scan driver (1080 lines, each chip driving ~36 lines) compared to modern plasma using just 12 chips.


And LG made one that was gold plated for some bizarre reason.


I'd imagine that it probably had pretty good brightness given the 700W power consumption figure, but the black level probably sucked due to it being very old technology.

lol not TOO long ago people thought even like a 32 inch was pretty big. I have a tv at a small distance (sometimes even only 4 feet away) so even 50 is too big for me and I have tod eal with it, but if I had it in a larger area, I can see how people would want larger and larger tvs in those areas. I tried a projector within the past year or so and it was cool having 100 inches and I only used it on the wall, too. lol

not as hard to trying to live with clouding/flashlighting



if you want the big, theatre experience, 70" isn't gonna make any difference anyway. figure out if you're room can handle front projection, and never look back. 3grand spent on a good projector and screen will blow away the picture quality you can get for 3grand on an LED, and it'll be much, much larger too. but only if your room lighting and reflections can be controlled. for what it's worth, I find my jvc x35 to be superior in many ways to my Samsung f8500. not all, but enough that the f8500 is no longer used for critical viewing, it's only used for bright room or casual viewing/gaming
