The Akai Plasma may be either a Samsung or and Akai. Differences are suttle,
such as coding within the serial numbers and slightly different colours of
the cabinet. The Samsung based sets are the same colour as their projection
DLP sets. The Akai are darker grey, approaching black. Makea a major
difference when ordering specific replacment parts when servicing.

The original Akai went bankrupt many years ago,,somebody has just
bought the rights to use the brand name,,,
and yes I remember the Akai R to R tape decks,,,they used to come with
a demo tape,,-

After doing some online research, I bought a 42" AKAI, widescreen,
HDTV Monitor at
BJ's for $1498.00 in March .
Is there anything I should be aware of at this point? Are prices
this fast across industry or am I in for it. I will say that one phone
call to their tech support folks was disastrous on my end, figured they
are overwhelmed at moment.
Can't say about plasma, but I bought an Akai HD set almost 2 years ago,
and have been very pleased with it. (It's actually a Samsung, rebadged).
bought it at Sam's Club for about $1200. Some people say they've never
heard of Akai, but I'm sure I remember the name in audio components from
long time ago. I'm not sure that means anything. :-)
I can vividly remember the AKAI brand from my USAF days in 1960's, they
high end tape decks! and bought them on bases.
