As my Toshiba 72 inches 72MX195 DLP TV went broke, I am looking for a replacement in the flat LCD screen (not Plasma) of more or less the same size. The biggest I have found is 65 inch.
Is there a chance to find in Canada a 70 inch TV ? When this product would be on the market?

NEC, Samsung, and I believe Sharp may make 70" displays.

But, they are about $10,000. A VERY significant jump over the 60"/65" models.

Why not plasma? The room not suitable to the best image possible? Except for reflections, most people don't have the best reasons for not getting a plasma, and the 65" Panasonic plasma (VT25) is the best display currently on the market.

Plasma has not a good reputation in quality so I would not envisage using Plasma. Furthermore I understand that this technology has no future.

Ah, then you have been misinformed by idiots.

Period.

Plasma has long held the position of the BEST quality display on the market, and the Panasonic VT25 series of displays are the best displays ever produced since the, now discontinued, Pioneer Kuro plasmas.

Read the reviews of the Panasonic VT25 series, and you will start to understand just how good they look.

Not that LCD looks bad, but for less money you can get higher quality with a plasma.

Of course, a cheap plasma is like a cheap lcd - it is cheap and won't look great. But, the Panasonic models typically last 10+ years without issues.

The lifespan on the glass of a plasma is upwards of 60,000 hours. With 8 hours of use a day, that works out to about 20 years of life from the glass. Far more likely the electronics will fail first.

Really, please do some more research on websites that actually know what electronics are. Store employees tend to be clueless and try to sell more expensive displays instead of informing you properly.

AVSForum and Audioholics will both give similar information to this and these forums are DEEP with people who know better.

If you want a bit of more generic reading:

it's the best 2D TV we've ever tested

The only two real downsides are the potential glare and energy consumption. If you had a DLP in the space, then glare won't be an issue and this will definitely be better. Energy consumption is about the only thing left.

Really, if you have questions, I'm happy to answer them, but when I hear things like "DLP is the best" or "plasmas have issues" it makes me upset because most people don't actually know what the truth is regarding these items. They also don't know the issues and strengths of the other technologies.

Want one of the best front projection technologies? Get LCoS.

Want the best looking flat panel on the market, with unrivaled reliability and performance? Get a plasma - specifically a Panasonic VT25 series plasma.

Well my own eyes did not like the quality of plasma screen when compared with LCD next to it, and thus ths corroborated what I heard. But I dont want to say that you are wrong. May be the setting of the plasma screen was not made correctly. Nevertheless, after having seen an Optoma video projector on a large screen, I migh explore this possibility instead of a 65 inch LCD or Plasma screen.
