Panasonic might give up on Plasma TVs
Reports are circulating that TV maker Panasonic has halted the development of plasma TVs and is considering exiting the market altogether. Panasonic wouldn't be the first major TV manufacturer to exit the sagging plasma TV market, as
threw in the towel on the segment back in 2009.
The move is part of Panasonic's plan to turn around its ailing TV business. For its part, a Panasonic representative was more nebulous about the company’s intentions, stating, "We are considering a number of options regarding our TV business. But nothing has been decided yet.”
in November of 2012 that it has plans to shed 10,000 workers by the end of March 2013. And last summer, Panasonic
that it was teaming up with Sony to share costs and to collaborate on the production of next-generation OLED panels for TVs and other large displays. Many see OLED as the next big sreen technology in the TV industry.

Bought my LG PQ2000 Plasma for 500USD. Gives better quality than most LCD's in its price range.
Friend of mine has a Philips 45" LCD and with its Natural Motion it is more like "Motion Sickness" Disgusting.
That aside we have a Panasonic P65 downstairs. And it's been going flawlessly for over 4 years already.
I once got into an argument with my local hi-fi audio and video enthousiast. Told him he has been bribed by Samsung for their D8000 series. Since he found them better at image quality than a VT50.
I told him he was blind and never spoke to him again.
All the guys their that came to that shop we're also plasma fans. Too bad he has to close his shop down now.
Won't get a penny from me anymore...
Hope to scoop up the ZT60 in a year or two.
I don't watch a lot of TV, cause, commercials.
But I do watch a lot of movies and premium channels.
For use with XBMC and great quality rips there is just no other...
Hope they will continue, I wish Panasonic the best.
I will never switch out to washed out LCD, try cleaning smudges on that! Haha good luck.
Also they might be heavier but they are quite sturdy and build quality is splendid.
Panasonic Plasma > any LCD ever created.
