The LG is a good plamsa,
though we sold a load of them panasonic ones at a trade fair.

Panasonic, Sony (as always) are the best for the normal person until you start talking silly money for plasmas.

Forget Plasma screens as their poop they'll live about 3-5 years, IMO a LCD screen is far superior & picture quality is far better than a plasma, also if the plasmas are left on for too long they'll suffer from screen burn this is where the image is burnt onto the screen.

Plasma don't have a very good refresh rate - hence you get a blurred picture for the first couple of seconds when there is a drastic change in the colour etc

Two years ago yes not anymore, 60,000hr at 12 hours watching a day is 13 years.
Plus Plamsa do not have tubes, could go into detail on how they work but its a bit sad.
Though i am a tube fan and have a decent tube telly at home instead of a plasma.

lol @ tube in a plasma...

as for lcd vs plasma.....

have you seen them side by side... i work in a sony centre and we have two top models next to each other, LCD's tend to be really harsh and sharp, whereas plasma' have a nicer softness... plus you'll pay 7000+ for a 42" LCD (sony anyways) where a 42" plasma start from 1700 (again sony)

plasma models id recommend are kep42m1 which is 1700ish
or if you spend a bit more get the kdep37xs1 which is on offer for 2999.99 for the set, glass floating stand, dvd recorder & 3yr warranty...

oh and unlike the "cheaper" brands both sets are scart on the back, intergrated tuner (freeview on the 37") and the picture is supurb on both....

not that im biased though......

To answer a few questions

new panasonic viera range is excellent... we sell loads at work with few complaints.

Sony are miles away in my opinion.... although there new lcds are very good.

Plasma should last up to 8 years of normal use and can not be regassed. The new plasmas will not suffer from screen burn.

Nearly all lcds and plasmas from good manufacturers have scarts in the back

I have had my Panasonic 42" for nearly 2 years now. There is no blurr, I even connect my laptop to it the picture is that good!

LCD screens are poor because they emphasize the primary colours so make for a very unnatural picture colour, they also blurr. I have a 20" LCD upstairs and I much prefer the plasma picture.

Plasmas have an expected life expectancy of 10 years, but thats what they say about CRT tv's too.

I also have had a LCD projector with 1100 lumens brightness and though that was very good when the lights are low, the plasma works in any light condition and even adjusts the levels automatically via a sensor on the front.

LCDs are very difficult to manufacture above 40" so are expensive, this is where plasma excels, size.

I wish mine was so cheap, but then Ive had it a while now.

Get a plasma.
