Samsung to stop making plasma TVs

Samsung says it will stop making plasma TVs on November 30th. While disappointing, this isn’t unexpected news. (Panasonic did the same earlier this year).

The marketing, hyperbole and higher margins behind LCD’s popularity nailing the final nail in the coffin. Sad news for plasma fans. My first flatscreen was a Panasonic plasma and it’s still serving me well, and I had my eyes set on a Samsung make when an upgrade was deemed worthwhile/necessary.
