I just recently admired the Plasma image quality again. Plasma is definitely not dead especially with large screen TVs. If you are looking to buy a new Plasma, Amazon has a special coupon deal until September 5th (or while supplies last) that gives you $450 rebate on the 58-inch Samsung PN58B860 Plasma HDTV.

THe Samsung 8 Series plasma HDTVs offers E-Panel technology combined with Samsung's Ultra FilterBright Plus, which provides a stunning high contrast picture even in bright rooms.
