This is indeed sad news. The Kuro is supposed to be one of the best quality plasmas, specially now that Marantz also seems to have stopped making plasmas.

Or just wait for OLED or TMOS TVs to be a reality.

I agree Ivid! But, fear not, as something better than both plasma and LCD is coming. Laser TV by Mitsubishi is hopefully going to be available in October! It is a great PQ and even lower energy cost than a LCD I guess…

Confuse the people? Sony is suppose to be coming out with a 3-D TV very soon?

This is really too bad. The best HD display I have ever seen was a Pioneer. I wonder if another company might purchase their manufacturing equipment and system.

If you want a plasma, Panasonic and Samsung make the next best to a Elite Kuro. Just got a Samsung PN50A650T and I am a happy customer.

It is really sad that Pioneer is pulling out but I can respect their position. Maybe, if times improve in the future, they will reconsider their decision again.
