Sony Stopped Making Plasmas About A Year Ago...

...And too bad too.

I have one of their last efforts, the KDE-42XS955.

What an awesome set.

Say what you want about Sony, but whatever they put their name on seems to rock!

In a few years, all will be replaced
by Dan Filice / April 21, 2006 8:12 AM PDT

There are TV display technologies being worked on right now that will replace LCD, Plasmas and everything else we know about today. One of the engineers where I work (TV broadcast company) told me about it. I can't explain it...way over my head, but it's coming. But what do we do? Nothing. Accept the fact that every 3 to 5 years all electronics will be outdated.'s all fun!

sony fell behind trying to be the best at everything
by masterying01 / April 21, 2006 3:53 PM PDT

the 42xs955 is a great plasma. its just that they fell behind in the technology and couldnt keep up with the pioneers for picture quality...nor could they keep up with panasonics for the value. they still make low end EDTV plasma's. those can be found at or (the last time i checked). it seems like (in my opinion), there were other similar options out there for much less money.

about 2 months ago, sony's new XBR LCD tv's were one of the most popular lcd's out there. but ever since the newer lcd's from other companies came out....its been a lot harder to sell the xbr's. sony will win a lot of people back though with the blueray ps3.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
