Plasma TV sales rebound: Is it a long-term trend

Although it may seem a bit "inside baseball" to talk about flat-panel TV shipments, the latest report from Austin-based market research firm DisplaySearch shows that plasma TV shipments were up dramatically during the first and second quarters of this year.

That's interesting, as many in the industry have been predicting the slow demise of plasma as a TV technology for nearly two years, especially since many major brands, including Sony, Toshiba and Vizio, now only sell LCD TVs. And we always get letters of complaints from readers whenever we say that many LCD TV technologies are really efforts to help improve inherent weaknesses in the technology so they can deliver plasma-like performance.
