Well, Panny is replacing their plasma line with 4k, to the tune of 5"K" for the 65". I don't know what the 58" is going for.
Here are two links that don't sound promising. It is still led, after all.
Amazon is sold out of the ST series. [ Plasma]
Like any new product, one should wait for the bugs to be worked out.
I see Netflix will have 4k streaming, but you better have great bandwidth. [ More $ ]
If Satellite ever carries 4k, rest assured it will be limited and certainly not cheap [ the demand will be slow in comming, unless prices hit rock bottom]
I don't know why plasma was touted as being inferior, most people I know admit it is a superior picture. I think Panasonic could have continued to produce a limited line for the people who wanted it. I certainly think there are enough plasma fans to support it. If 4k doesn't take off for them, then what? Nothing like putting all your eggs into one basket.
Just my thoughts.......
