Carbon TVs aim to overcome the drawbacks of Plasma and LCD – CD Freaks.com: "Plasma sets are heavier and usually require specialised installation, however costs have been coming down along with better picture improvement over older plasma sets. However they still suffer from screen burn if abused, consume quite a lot of electricity as well as offer lower resolution compared with LCD apart from the higher end expensive plasma models.
If FED or SED displays do start shipping in 2006, they will come in good time with Blu-Ray or HD-DVD hitting the markets as HD enthusiasts will start looking for a suitable TV for their new player if they have not already done so. It will be interesting to see what pricing the sets will be. If they do manage to offer significantly lower pricing compared with even plasma, it may be a major blow to plasma, LCD and rear-projection TV manufacturers."
