Plasma TVs are better!

This site has moved to

It seems that Pioneer is not doing well. They have outsourced IDT, an "independent" company, to conduct test on which display technology is better - Plasma. LCD, or MicroDisplay (aka DLP). Happens to be plasma is the best. You know what - we knew that. No need to prove this. Let's better conduct a real world price comparison tests. It is the price to value ratio that makes the customer decide what to buy.
Other than price - I have no objections. They even wrote this:

With respect to image retention, all three technology types were subjected to a ‘torture’ test in which a static video game image was retained on the TV screen for 48 hours, followed by a 24-hour loop of standard video content. While the plasma TV screen displayed signs of image retention (i.e., ghosting) after the 48-hour full screen test, the 24-hour video loop essentially ‘cleaned’ the screen leaving no perceptible trace of the original static image. On a scale of 1-5, with 1 being “Not Visible” and 5 being “Readily Visible and Clearly Defined,” all plasmas tested were rated as 1 or “Not Visible.”
Very brave test for plasma.
