Plasma TVs Outsell Rear-Projection Sets

In the world of television, the future belongs to plasma screens... judging from sales, at least. Shipments of plasma TVs reached a record high of 1.13 million units during 2Q 2005 -- nearly a 90% increase over the previous year. Sales of plasma sets have eclipsed sales of rear-projection models, and are even gaining on traditional CRT TVs, whose sales fell nearly 40% since 2004.
