LG Might Be Ready To Give Up on Plasma TVs Altogether

Illustration for article titled LG Might Be Ready To Give Up on Plasma TVs Altogether

According to Korean outlet 47News, an LG VP has indicated that the company, barring any drastic change in sales or costs, might just stop producing plasma TVs. UPDATE:

They wouldn't be the first by any stretch—Pioneer and Vizio have both recently clenched the sphincter on plasma production, citing low profitability. If razor-thin profit margins are the concern, though, LG's next move—to produce CRT displays for the developing world, according to the article—seems an odd choice. UPDATE: For what it's worth (a lot?), LG has denied the report. [47News via Crunchgear]

LG plasmas are HORRIBLY unreliable. When people complain about the price of Kuros, I chuckle a bit.

You get what you pay for. Keep the lip-syncing issues as a free gift.
