In Reply to: RE: I'll never forgive Panasonic for discontinuing their plasma. posted by Mr. Dick Hertz on September 10, 2017 at 21:45:38
I have the Panasonic Plasma sets (42, 50 and 65). All still work great. I hope they lost a long time.
I think the problems were 2x.
First? Energy consumption of plasma sets is pretty high compared to LED / LCD stuff and later, to the new OLED.
Second? No 4k plasma possible or costs would have been REALLY astronomical. They would have had trouble selling enough sets to justify development costs.
First Pioneer dropped out. The engineers from the KURO days went to Panasonic. Panasonic made the best sets EVER in the last generation, the '60 series) while LG was pretty good and I think there was one other. I think LG was the last to drop? My brother has a 60" LG and it is terrific.
About 1/2 of all sets sold Never have there color adjustments messed with. And sales of the REAL bargain basement stuff is good. That tells me people are MORE than willing to accept commodity television and junk it out when it breaks. Maybe every 3 to 5 years.
Too much is never enough
Yea, its amazing how many people don't even try to calibrate their sets.
Its scary to see otherwise intelligent people watching a picture with green sky.
And with the aspect ratio not set properly! As if they dont know what shape people should be.....
I changed a few settings for the cinema mode for my Samsung Plasma based on the review from rtings.com that claimed that those minor changes got the set to very close to a professional calibration. I'm not complaining though I hate the way some movies shot everything in the dark to the point that it's all shadows.
...have green sky and aren't even connected to a hi-def cable box.
