Just got news that all Samsung Plasma tv's are to be cleared. Reminiscent of the old Toshiba HD DVD players when news broke about them pulling out. Is this the final nail in the coffin for plasma? If so, it's a sad, sad day.

As bigboss says, could you provide the link, please? I've also just checked on google and the only result points to this very thread.

This could be the perfect

This could be the perfect opportunity to get hold of the 64F8500 for a great price.

Wow, people really don't care about verifying their sources round here do they?

I've just done a quick google and found this from cnet, as far as the op is concerned i would like to see a link to back up his story, unless he has heard it from someone in the business.

Yuh, that's Panasonic, it's 6 months old and it says they're NOT stopping plasma production. Other than that...

Agreed...there seems to be no

Agreed...there seems to be no substance to this story and the OP has provided no information other than to declare Samsung ceasing production of plasma TVs, where is the article? Where has this info come from? Much more info is required until I buy into that so called news.

Looking at Tarxman's

Looking at Tarxman's signature, his TVs are not UK spec. Maybe he's heard the news in his country, wherever that is...

Yeah, I saw that too, good point, Pindi. But Tarxman has disappeared, not the first time on these forums that someone has started a contentious thread and then vanished. So he may never provide the link that was the genesis of his first post, and until he does, I'll just let this subject pass me by.

Just didn't see the point in posting links to months old opinion pieces that had no relevance.
