They are pretty safe, if they spend a lot time in a service garage so they can't be driven.
Sorry, could not resist! That was a salute to my '91 Tortoise...I know the latest Fords have turned a major corner, so to speak.

like I said before....LCD is a big light bright...one big light...each pixel pasma has... is it's own light source.

Anyone who compares the two must not know anything...just that in itself makes Plasma blow away LCD.

PS5
You said no LCD can display more than 600 line of moving resolution?
Makes a case for 768p LCD.

I waited for plasma to get 1080 moving resolution. But 600?

Some of you shouldn't bash one because you own the other. In the end it comes down to personal preference, and your opinions are not facts, thats why we are entitled to our own opinions. It's not a FACT that Plasmas are better, it's just your opinion.
Ahhh your new hear, first of all no one bashes each other in this forum! Plasma does have a better picture quality than LCD and I will provide PROOF of what I am saying, oh yeah while your here look at my signature! Current LED/LCD can not compete with plasmas black levels while maintaining shadow detail, that's a fact not an opinion!

I don't know if it is vanishing or seeking the market level. There is a place for plasmas, but there are far more applications for LCD panels so I think those manufacturers just made a business decision.

Just like there are places for Lamborghini cars, but many more for Fords.

If you have a light controlled room and watch a lot of movies, the plasma picture is generally going to be much better than any LCD. There are some people who can tell the difference with the motion response between LCD and plasma and other people don't. If you do, then plasma would be a better fit for you if you watch a lot of sports. Failing that, there may not be any difference in picture quality between the two as the black levels don't really come into play watching sports. In fact the majority of TV has brightly lit video with only a few dramas and movies being the exception.

But to say everyone is abandoning plasma technology may be premature. If they legislate them out of existence it could happen, but I don't think they will go the route of the CRTs any time soon myself.

Only if a better technology comes along. And LCD/LED ain't it IMO.

Why are so many people buying MP3s for music when they are compressed much more and sound worse? Because many people do not do research and listen to old myths. Just because more people buy something doesn't make it better than the alternative.

No surprise here....

I don't really care what other people buy, but unfortunately it determines to some degree what will be available to the rest of us.
And if we are more 'fussy', we will be paying more for what we want because of lower volume.

PFC5 you bring up an interesting point! Death to MP3s, they killed off DVD-A and SACDs! Like I really want compressed audio, can I have frys and a large rootbeer with my compressed audio!

The general public will always opt for convenience over quality, even when quality costs less. How else can you explain the success of companies like Bose?

I really think there is a completely different dynamic with mp3s than there is with HDTVs myself. I mean people have been used to listening to car radios for years and years. Even younger people have been exposed to fairly crappy audio for most of their lives growing up. Good audio in cars has been a fairly recent addition and has not been mainstream for a generation yet. So I think most people have not been exposed to quality and don't have equipment that would matter if they had quality sources.

Then there are the mp3 players, ipods etc. which way outnumber the quality audio equipment. Why would you feed those things with anything more than a mp3?

There is one area where there is a similar thing going on. Quality in both HDTV and audio is being pressed into niche markets. But I think the gap between low and high in HDTV is less than in audio.

Was checking out LCD's the other day at BB. Looking at screen dead on very nice,started viewing left and right of center trying to imagine as if I had company over what they would see viewing from these angles, simply awful. The companies that produce LCD TV should be ashamed of themselves for selling these things. Other then straight on veiwing or for use as a computer monitor they should not be marketed.
