I always wanted to love them thanks to their thinking outside the box, but unfortunately that thinking outside the box never ended up producing must-have picture quality (see: Quattron).

The uniformity of their panels was usually quite poor also.

So, what happened to them? Bluntly, I don't feel they had much to offer in an already crowded LCD marketplace.

The reason is the weak management and marketing. Not paying due attention to the sector of home appliances ..
Pioneer had their property due to poor implementation and poor investments, the company closed its production of televisions.
