We can see not much breakthrough till 1995 for Plasma TV and PDP huge panel Display TV system. Now we all know it is time for the LCD TV with much faster response than some 6 years ago. And The latest technology is LED back Lit... with an end product of sleek slim design and thin profile of 5 mm in Thickness. that can be hung on wall.
