RIP Panny Plasmas

Just saw a report on CNBC that Panasonic is planning on exiting the plasma business by March 2014. Can't say I'm overly surprised but still a bummer. Hope the others aren't following suit soon.

So buy two or three plasmas and save 'em!
What's the problem?

Look on the bright side: Maybe they're gearing up for Oled production.
Supposed to be better than plasma -no?

BTW: Costco has a Samsung 55 inch 240 hz LED for under $800.
Is not a "smart" TV however.
Audiowoman: Sounds like you're on the right track with the HDMI 1.4 VS 1.3.
Make sure your receiver has the new standard as well.
