Samsung introduces its new line of plasma televisions with the F8500 series.
The 55-inch LG 55EC9300 OLED and Samsung PN64F8500 plasma have been declared dual winners of the 10th annual TV Shootout by Value Electronics, beating out other LCD and OLED displays after a recount.

Panasonic will sell its last plasma TV March 2014, making the company's current 2013 line its last. Great picture quality just became less attainable.
