Default Pioneer confirms that it's leaving the TV business

It leaves only Panasonic, LG and Samsung for plasma TVs.

I read similar news about Philips that they are quitting the consumer electronics market in favor of medical equipments.

Read this link. DisplaySearch is considered one of the best electronics consultancy. Of course, this was before the recent Pioneer decision. You can also get some very `close to reality' insights on this site:

DisplaySearch Revises Worldwide TV Forecasts; LCD TV Revenue Expected to Fall Y/Y for the First Time in LCD TV History - DisplaySearch

It is also reported that Pioneer now plans to focus resources on its car navigation systems and other auto electronics products. No mention of flat TVs.
As for me, I am quite happy with my Pioneer. However, for the future, I may have to buy Panasonic (quite good). Sad that a `pioneer' and great plasma TV is exiting. Perhaps there knowledge (manpower) will be acquiredby the last company standing. That may be good for us.

i envy you so much mura. i have a full HD W series Sony 40 incher, and I dont regret buying it, but the Kuro will kick its behind in picture quality.

Being in the AV business i have seen almost all the Flatscreen TVs in the market and by far the best built and best performing TV you have to Pick the Pioneer Kuro's.

And i got it for a Killer Price
