When it comes to HDTVs, Plasma and LCD pretty much takeover the market, but by this time next year, we should see a new technology entering the arena, Laser TVs (which we pre-viewed in April 2006). Laser TVs are a similar to the technology in DLPs, but these TVs have double the color range and costs manufacturers a lot less to produce. Less to produce should equal lower costs for us consumers.
From a performance standpoint, Laser TV makes plasma and LCD look like child’s play, but the two oldies still have something going for them: size. Since Laser TVs are a projection technology, they are a little big, and not exactly wall-mountable. It will be interesting to see where this goes in the future, because all I’m looking for is 1080p that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
