I think Plasma TVs are much better than the LCDs. Samsung has recently rolled out PS50A556, a 50-inch Plasma HDTV. It offers amazing image quality at 30,000:1 contrast ratio, 1920?1080 resolution and 1300cd/m2 brightness. Samsung PS50A556 Plasma HDTV comes equipped with digital tuner and three HDMI 1.3 inputs. It is available in high glossy black panel. No information on the price yet.
