Toshiba and Canon claim SED TVs will be here in two years, but will the price be competitive?
that the joint surface-conduction electron-emitter display venture between Canon and Toshiba will have to wait an extra year or so. At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas two months ago, the two companies announced that
SED displays are just inside a year for commercial use
With the cost of LCD and Plasma TVs in near freefall, for SED TVs to gain any market acceptance, the technology needs a dramaticly cheaper cost or dramatically apparent feature. Right now, DLP and similar technologies dominate the high fidelity market while LCD and Plasma TVs have dropped so much in cost that SED has a difficult task ahead of itself to really unseat either technology.
For example, low end 37" LCD TVs used to cost approximately $2,000 about this time of the year in 2004. Today, you can walk into any Costco or Frys and pick up a 37" Syntax LCD for $1,300. The price drop is even more dramatic for larger sized LCDs. DLP prices have experienced similar drops, but have also increased resolution dramatically in the last two years. For SED to really have a fighting chance out of the gate, Toshiba-Canon would need a 37" to 40" SED TV for under $1,500 to compete with sub-$1,000 LCD TVs of the same size.
Toshiba and Canon have promised nearly $2B USD to keeping SED technology afloat, though Intel made similar promises in 2002 with LCoS technology.

> "The typical HDTV owner doesn't even have a HD feed"
Once again, you don't have a clue what you're talking about. I know a dozen or two people with HDTV's (including myself). All of them have at least one HD programming source.
I'm sure some HDTV owners have no HD material, but this hardly makes the entire product line a scam sold to "marks". Many millions of people have been enjoying HD quality for several years now. If you're still using a 13" B&W tube set, don't expect the rest of us to do likewise.
