Panasonic halting production for Plasma TVs

We all know that Panasonic is one of the best in making Plasma TVs but in today’s age Plasma TVs are clearly on their way out the door, according to Panasonic, they are officially discontinuing its plasma flat panels  in an effort to “accelerate the growth strategy of the company.” We all know the LED TVs and OLED TVs are the most popular TV’s today, even 4k TVs are making its way to consumers soon. Panasonic will end its production in December, and completely fold its plasma manufacturing operation in March of next year. The Panasonic Viera ST60 is arguably one of the best HDTVs on the market, despite its plasma panel in an era of LCD and LED dominance. So it’s really sad that Plasma TVs will “end” soon.

Plasma TV’s may go but they will always be remembered as one of the most popular HDTVs. Sony and Samsung have been leading the mainstream of HDTVs but Panasonic isn’t far behind. 4ks and OLED TVs are on its way too and it’s going to be something new for consumers to sink their teeth into. Truly, technology has its way of “improving” itself as time goes by. In the end, whether it’s LED, OLDED or even 4k it all boils down to personal preference. It’s sad that we have to say goodbye for Panasonic’s Plasma TVs, but at least we will see something new from them in the future.
