2022: You still using plasma?
« on: Jul 06, 2022 at 08:06 AM »
By 2014, Panasonic, LG, and Samsung all stopped their plasma production.

8 years later... are you still rocking your plasma daily?

My Panasonic Plasma purchased last 2010 still working to this day! I have already replaced my other newer TVs twice but my Plasma still going strong.

I use to have Panasonic TC-P42X1 bought 2010 (I think). I replaced it last 2017 for a bigger model, I sent the unit to my parents. It broke around 2020 and the video board needs replacing (the one that controls the hdmi, component etc). Everything is all good (specially the panel) but we can't find parts. It is currently a paperweight in their place.

The reason I replaced it is for bigger size, electric bill and technology (not smart, vision, HDR etc).
The replacement is now broken just few months shy of 5 years. Currently have an OLED that I hope will last longer.

I really wish they can still make tvs as tough as plasmas, again specially the panel.

Man, I miss my plasma.  A friend of mine is still rocking his post-Kuro Panny plasma whereas my Samsung had to go through multiple warranties. :(

I still have a 42” and a 50” Pioneer Kuro from 2008 and 2011 respectively.  Still solid.

My main TV is a 65” LG Oled.  Honestly the 50” Kuro can still match it for color performance but the 42” one is showing its age.

I envy you guys. I really tried to revive my Panasonic PV70 na 42 inch but it died during the height of the pandemic (2020-2021). No parts were available (power supply) and we really needed to replace it since the kids use that TV a lot and we cant wait for it to get fixed.  Sold it to a magbabakal for Php100.00.

Happy naman kami dun sa replacement (a 55 inch UHD 4K Huawei) but iba pa din colors ng plasma.

My 2016 OLED is now 6yo. I made it a point to put a AVR so it would last at least up to 2026 & later.

Probably this is the reason my Sammy LED broke down in 5 years.  It has an AVR but not the mid-range (e.g. servo motor), I replaced the AVR a year before it broke.  But looking at the internet, the model has similar issues.

The OLED inherited the AVR so let us see how it goes.

To add, I realized only a few months ago that the power in my place sometime goes up to 245-250V.  I found this out after buying a voltage protector for the fridge.

That problem isn't isolated to your place. It's a nation-wide problem.

Govt regulators are not imposing a stricter quality standard for your home. So it is up to the home owner to put a whole-home AVR or UPS.

Wow ganda ng experiences niyo sa OLED... Usually kasi kahit LCD lang bumibigay pa rin after some time, kung 6 years or more na yan sulit na rin. I was worried about screen burn/retention pero mukhang non-issue naman pala to.

Thats why gone are the days, for me at least, of buying the best my budget permits. I try to get something a little bit cheaper where going up a line does not really prove useful. Kaya mas tuamtagal gamit dati not because of quality, but the complexity of current tech. Most times, small components cannot handle the current or heat as compared to analog components. One minute component going out and bye bye 70k for example. Wag ka na din umasa sa mga official tech people. Once your warranty is up, sr%w you na.

More like price competition causes Brands to look for cost cutting measures that reduces the durability of their components in temperature, humidity, and power environment extremes.

Like all our Samsung 720p & 1080p TVs. They all had faulty logic boards in less than 5 years. This is why I am unwilling to buy their TVs.

I then heard that Samsung imposes their own ad network's video ads on their TV on top of the apps.

Thank goodness I bought a LG OLED without that nonsense.

I suspect this was caused by plugging the TV direct to the wall and it suffered from dirty power

That's why I bought a AVR that has double the max input power of my LG OLED TV. So when there's a power spike i will not be crap out of luck with it.
