"It's being hailed by its developers as the next revolution in visual technology - a laser television that will make plasma screens obsolete.

Soon-to-be-listed Australian company Arasor International and its US partner Novalux yesterday unveiled what they claimed to be the world's first laser television in Sydney, with a pitch that it will be half the price, twice as good, and use a quarter of the electricity of conventional plasma and LCD TVs."

Sorry dave!! Camaro, feel happy you are missing plasma, money saved!! I bet that laser will be quite resonable. It will have to be if it is going to drive plasma out of business.

Yeah, me too. I don't even have an HD TV. They are tooooo far outside my range of affordablity and logic considering I watch about 2 hours of TV a week (so why do I pay $55.00 USD a month for cable??? :lol: )...talker. :smoke:

I would not mind getting a 50in laser tv/main monitor that i can say "Saves power" and is "A fraction of the price of a plasma" I can't afford it...but imagine games on a 50 screen. :lol:

I've read some place (must see if I can find it again) that the laser tech will only replace the plasma from 30inches up. Does this mean laser will not be as good on lower size screens?

Here is a quote from the article that says that David but it does not say why this will be...talker. :smoke:

"Mr Pelaprat predicted LCD TVs would come to dominate the market below 40 inches, and laser television the market above that screen size, displacing plasma."
