    I'm not trying to either. It just seems like I am seeing more of them in stores right now. You pretty much have it. Most people don't care about specs except for the size.

    My parents have a 50" Panasonic Plasma from like 2011 and I can't see a difference from LCD.

    I just want a tv with good uniform black levels, and that doesn't weigh 300+ lbs when getting into the 50+ inch category...OLED offers the closest to that right now from what I've seen.

    I'm simply listing many standards and marketing gimmicks, and also implying that it didn't last against LCD in spite of being superior technology in many respects. Even Panasonic called it quits on their large-screen professional plasma displays a year ago, and they were adamant for years that they were the superior choice. They simply could not compete in terms of cost in spite of reasonable sales for pro application. Now, plasma is largely only still used in video walls where very small bezels are necessary.

    And you looked at them side-by side, with the same content?

    Better yet, look at both screens from somewhat of an angle to the left or right.

    No not side by side. Just from regular viewing and then the LCDs I have at my place.

    I have a cheap 32" 720p HDTV LCD from Black Friday 2 years ago that still works great. Got it for $60. lol

    My living room has a 40" 1080p HDTV LED that I paid a little under $200 last Christmas. It's really light, which gives it a cheap feel, but it's still working strong.

    Well, rest assured that there is a notable difference between plasma screens and even the best "LED LCD" screens, especially on the black levels.

    The thing is, some people actually prefer the unnatural brightness of most LCDs. And they could care less about low refresh rates or 'ghosting' or whatever. As has been said above by others, in the end people will decide what they end up with based on cost price and size of the TV.

    Since we have a Vita thread on here now: "Mobile Gaming Didn't Kill The Vita -- Sony Did"

    (Partial list of) Reasons according to the article (more of a rant, really) why Sony is to blame for its failure:

    - Sony decided to gouge customers by forcing them to use proprietary memory cards, then jacking up the prices to obscene levels. (A 32GB Vita memory card retails for $100; standard 32GB SDHC memory cards cost $18.)
    - Sony marketed the Vita as a portable system with “console-quality gaming,” then went on to pack it with shoddy spinoffs like Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Call of Duty: Declassified, and Resistance: Burning Skies.
    - Despite all this, a subset of hardcore gamers quickly realized that the Vita was a fantastic machine for indies and niche Japanese games. So what did Sony do? They decided to pivot it as a portable accessory to the PS4—as if anyone would dish out an extra $250 to play Destiny on the toilet.
    - Vita owners also realized that the machine is fantastic for playing old PS1 and PSP games. Sony saw how much money they could make there, and they immediately filled out the PlayStation Store, pleasing fans with truckloads of classic new games every week. Just kidding. They ignored it. Even today you need to use a silly shortcut just to get some old games working on your Vita.
    - Remember the PS2? One of the most successful video game consoles in history? Chock full of great games that could be ported to the Vita in various ways? Someone should remind Sony.
    - Remember BioShock Vita? lmao
    - Sony has pretty much spent the past two years pretending the Vita doesn’t exist, ignoring it at every major trade show and convention. It’s embarrassing.
    - Sony has publicly admitted that they are no longer making Vita games.

    Especially the memory card was a total moronic decision on Sony's part (no news there), but clearly them hardly making any games for the system anymore is equally bad if not worse indeed. As the writer points out correctly, the 3DS is doing fine in this supposedly "toxic climate for handheld systems", but only because Nintendo made it work by releasing a ton of quality games for the system.

    Uncharted Golden Abyss I felt was really good and showed the graphical power of the Vita. Didn't really care that it was only a spinoff, because I enjoyed it. Wish it got a few more Uncharted games (card game notwithstanding)
