Disappointed to hear this. I have a Pioneer Kuro, best TV I have ever owned, but it is getting a bit long in the tooth. I was hoping to replace it with the Panasonic ZT60, but now they are getting out of plasma, too.

Yes, you're about a year late on that one. A year ago, you might have taken advantage of some Amazon sales on this and other Panasonic plasma models, but now they're gone, gone, gone (Amazon still lists a new ZT60 for $10k).

The ZT line was surely one of the best plasma (and maybe non-plasma) HD performers ever, although some of the lower rung Panasonic (VT and UT models) had comparatively excellent performance. Now, the best you can do is some very expensive OLED sets or LED/LCD sets which advertise "plasma-like quality", but don't live up to that claim.

It's really too bad when there's one of these "end of a generation" situations (i.e., Kodachrome film), when something cheaper (to manufacture), but not necessarily better takes over the sales picture, but that's life, I guess????
