Plasma TV Is Officially Dead

Samsung announced that it will end production of the last plasma TV’s that it produces later this year, and with it Plasma will disappear from the market. Like 3D TV before it, the technology failed to catch on with consumers, as LCD TV’s ultimately usurped Plasma. And now, with the rise of 4K and curved TV’s (okay, maybe not the latter), it was only a matter of time before this technology made its way to the exit. It’s yet another example of a technology with seemingly bold promise tarnished by the test of time.
