LG 'may cease plasma TV production'Japanese rumours of LG following Pioneer's exit
28 February 2009
Rumours from Japan suggest that LG will follow Pioneer by ceasing production of plasma TV panels.
It comes in the same month that Which? reported that Pioneer has decided to pull out of the plasma TV market. In contrast, LCD panels are becoming cheaper to manufacture and more widely available in larger screen sizes.
In response to the latest news, Which? TV expert Mike Briggs said: 'Which? has never been particularly impressed by the LG plasma TV range, so this would be no big loss to the TV-buying public.
'On the flipside, LG has made great strides forward in the quality of its LCD TV range in 2008, and boasts some models, such as the 32LG5000, that have impressed in Which? expert lab tests, and are worth a second look.'
Which? has reviews of over 190 LCD and plasma TVs from manufacturers including LG, Pioneer, Panasonic, Samsung and Sony. If you're undecided on the plasma vs. LCD debate, then our advice guide will give you the answers you need.
