A lot of different people contributed to it. A German guy first patented the idea but it wasn't developed until many years later by a few different companies.

The first commercially available televisions actually came from British companies I believe. Not sure exactly which one sold the first ever commercially available set though.

It also boils down to what you regard as a TV, i.e. is it just a physical device or is it the process of watching content sent over radio waves.

they are actually amazing! they're still around. Actually Plasmas are way better than LCD-LEDs, many would argue. The only advantage LCD-LEDs get is that its brighter and has less power consumption. Plasmas have deeper blacks, and can produce faster images then Leds. Only technology that would beat Plasmas is OLED, which i think some are being released, but then they're very expensive.

Ain't this the truth. Love my 46" Aquos Quattron too.

Why isn't the Aquos getting more love here?

My preference, in order, is:

1) Sharp Aquos
2) Samsung
3) Sony

Wouldn't buy anything else.

I like Samsung. Reason: I have the same 2 since 2007. A 61" LED backlit DLP, and a 40" LCD. Both have given me absolutely no problems and the picture quality is still excellent on both. When it comes time to replace them, Samsung it will be
