The demise of EDTV

Matt Burns

EDTV: we hardly knew you and truthfully, we won't miss ya. Enhanced definition plasmas was a great alternative to what was then a high priced item. There was a time not long ago when high definition flat panels were more of a Luxist item but there was enhanced definition that offered most of what high-def had to offer at a fraction of the cost. But alas, you are leaving us soon.

The average price of plasmas has nearly been cut in half each of the past years. Enhanced definition has always been there a cool thousand under the price of its big brother, but with HD plasmas easily reaching 2K, EDTVs are no longer needed.
