I think that's pretty damn good.
Richer colors, deeper blacks, far less banding, no screen bleeding, faster response time, smoother, and 0 input lag.
Hmm 0 input lag? Care to prove against a CRT?
maybe you meant much faster response time at least.. input lag? doubt it has zero..
I have a 2011 42 incher LG plasma and has 70-110ms delay.. that's huge.
Plasma isn't better than LCD in some cases:
User is sensitive to flickering
User is sensitive to "rainbow shimmer"
User is sensitive to ABL
(brightness fluctuation in layman [can cause dirty whites for some viewers]), Image Retention
User is sensitive to Horizontal Line Bleed
(I happened to be one of the unluckiest plasma buyers since I was sensitive to all of those!)
There's hardly a consensus even on AVS if those are really inherent to all plasmas.
I'd gladly take an LCD right now if at least that specific model.
If you DON'T
know any of those I suggest you don't go looking for them
