No more value and budget size Plasma, It’s Kuro or we’ll get it from someone else. While many of us are still struggling to get the first value medium size flat screen, manufacturer like Pioneer is ceasing the production of a 42-inch plasma TV by end of March next year. They will continue to market and sell displays of that size for now, but Pioneer will focus solely on pushing displays with 50-inches or larger.
It’s an interpretation of LCD continues to grab an increasing amount of market share by pushing plasma out of budget range. Same reason OLED doesn’t stand a chance if they can’t lower the production cost. If you need plasma from a genuine Pioneer, it will soon be a big Kuro or nothing.
