I dissagree with the article saying that although yes there seems to be a growing number of 1080p plasma out there but they are definetly not cheaper then a LCD, ei. Futureshop, Panasonice 42" Plasma 1080p, $1800
LG 42" 1080p $1400, Sony 40" 1080p $1500 or Sharp 42" 1080p $1600
Dont forget the power bill thats attached with a plasma vs lcd, and the possiblity of burn in, the glare of the window in the tv screen during the day.

Which models are you comparing the prices of? It's not fair to compare pricing for different technologies from different vendors simply on the basis of all the sets being 1080p. It's barely fair to compare different technologies form the same vendor.

Please don't keep repeating the same old lies about plasma. A properly calibrated plasma won't consume anywhere near the maximum wattage that is listed in the spec sheets (check out cnet's findings on the power consumption of the Samsung T5084 once it was calibrated for an example of how dramatic the difference can be), and burn-in has been pretty much eliminated unless you're running a static image 24/7. As for the other so called faults you mentioned, well I'll take those over the motion blur, lousy blacks, and clouding of LCD TVs.

Okay, the thread is not about the benefits or negatives of plasma but about sales numbers so please lets stay on topic!

I'm a little surprised that Pioneer's share of the pie was so low.

You need to compare 120Hz 1080p LCD to a 1080P Plasma if you want a more fair comparison of price/performance. The article words it "comparable LCD pricing". A 60Hz 1080P LCD is not comparable to a 1080P plasma for performance.
