Pioneer refuses to give up on PDP

And I think that’s a good thing. Plasma screens look a hell of a lot better than LCDs, in my opinion.

I read an article a few weeks back that claimed that Japan as a whole had essentially dismissed plasma screens in favor of LCD. I remember finding that extremely odd; it’s a wonder I didn’t blog about it.


PDP TVs are facing increasing competition from liquid crystal display TVs, which are being made larger, and the emergence of other types of flat-screen technologies.

But a senior Pioneer official said: “Plasma is more appropriate than LCDs for TVs that are 40 inches or larger. We believe PDPs will continue to share the flat-screen TV market with LCDs.”

I know I’d rather have a huge plasma TV than a huge LCD TV.
