RE: Samsung ending plasma production

Samsung had initially announced that the F8500 plasma will continue onto 2014, but quietly decided to end it.

`I guess that people who are more discerning will be bothered with "their" lack of choice for something better.

So if my plasma fails your solution is I stump up £2500 extra to replace it?  Thanks LG.

Indeed, happily sitting in their ignorance thinking that they have actual LED TVs rather than LCD backlit by LEDS...

Im fine with it because I own a VT65b so I'll be ok for 5 or so years. Hopefully panasonic or Samsung will get their act together with OLED and bring down the price for OLED because I'm not a fan of LG..

RE: Samsung ending plasma production by the end of this ylow

Personally I don't see what all the fuss is about as this has been on the cards for some time now, we all knew it was coming and the only question was when.

The figures speak for themselves and the fact is plasma TVs don't sell in the numbers they used to and technology moves at a pace so with the advent of 4K and OLED it's days were always numbered.

This can only be good news for those newer techs as less resources are used in producing PDP, you have to accept that technology moves forward very quickly and no matter how sad it is plasma has had it's day.

Bring on the new technology is what I say and I'm looking forward to seeing what the future brings and I believe 4K OLED is a glimpse of that future...bye bye plasma I won't miss you  :wave:

Samsung UE55F8000 TV (THX professional calibrated), Dali Zensor 5 7.1 (front presence configuration), Sony BDPS790, Yamaha RX-A2020, Marantz PM6004, Marantz CD6003, Virgin TiVo 1TB, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, WD TV Live, WD My Book World 1TB.
