RE: I'll never forgive Panasonic for discontinuing their plasma.

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
