    How many LCD manufacturing plants are out there ?

    There are so many previously unknown brands coming out of the Far East in addition to the standard stuff from Sony etc that each company can't have its own plant can it ?

    So who builds panels for whom, are they all the same ?

    Basically, and anyone can correct me on this, all Japanese manufacturers except for Sony use Sharp panals. The rest of the manufacturers use LG, Samsung or Hyundai panels, and yes, I think the manufacturers cross. I.E, Some LG units have Sharp panels and vice versa.

    Circuitry however is a different kettle of fish and this would normally be down to the factory making it.
    I think you will find, the cheaper branded goods may be using last year or previous technology.

    Ah, thanks for that link. I remember who makes the larger panels for NEC now, it's Mitsubushi.
    I didn't realise until the other day how many pies they have their fingers in. For instance, did you know they own Princes's who make the food and drink?
    NEC and Panasonic shut down their large screen panel manufacturing in 2003 I think.
