Yeah, Panasonic bet very big on plasma TVs. Plasma TVs are not the technology of choice.
But it offers superior image. Plenty of editorials out there moaning about plasma slowly fading, in part because it doesn't look as good in Best Buy even though it likely looks better in a living room. Depends on situation, though, both plasma and LCD have their strengths and are different enough that both should survive. I suppose that LCD is just more versatile.
