Samsung to end Plasma TV production


Staff member

Looks like Samsung is no longer going to make Plasma. It is a shame, but I think OLED is the future. LG is probably not far off in discontinuing their plasma TV's. LG converted one of their PDP plants into a plant for Solar batteries and all LG PDP panels are being made at Gumi A3 plant. One of the reasons why Panasonic got out of making PDP's was 4K and that it would likely not meet future energy regulations. Originally, Samsung was going to keep making plasma TV's until 2020, but that plan was scrapped as they too want to focus on 4K, Curved displays, and OLED. I am happy with my LCD's, but just wanted to post this.
