Wouldn't give up my front projector, but I also wouldn't give up my plasma. Different animals for different purposes.
The FP is for when you want to watch a movie. Full experience, no distractions.
The plasma is for when you have some sitcom on while eating dinner, or doing some project. We probably use the plasma more than the projector, because lots of viewing is casual. It is also the set we have connected to the antenna and TIVO. The FP and theater doesn't even have an OTA tuner installed.
Breaking News-Panasonic To Continue Plasma TV Research and Development
(Reuters) - Japan's Panasonic Corp has decided to pull out of the plasma television panel business by the end of the current financial year in March 2014, sources familiar with the situation told Reuters on Wednesday.
Panasonic had been expected to exit the struggling business, although the move was sooner than some analysts had predicted. Several hundred employees in the plasma operation are expected to be deployed to other parts of the company, the sources said.
