"LED > LCD > Plasma" just remember that LED is actually a lcd panel, just a different backlight, most of the led screens you can purchase are edge lit lcds, which actually produce poor image quality, and back backlight bleeding. essentially 4 leaks of light from the corners much like some computer lcds have. Its more noticable on dark scenes though, bright scenes not so much. only real plus to the led vs lcd is the size of the screen, much thinner and uses much less power. You end up paying a real premium for going 'green', plasma uses atleast twice as much power as a regular lcd and far more then led panel. Other things to consider are the leds have very high contrast ratio's and some people consider the image quality somewhat fake looking, in comparison to plasma, where is tends to look more like real film. leds almost always looks better under retail store lighting, where plasma looks amazing in a dark/dim room. one negative point for plasma's which can be very real is the 'humming' sound of the tv, which some models have. i know after reading on forums that samsung makes Very loud plasma's. many people have returned the units after hearing the sound in their home, almost like a humming fridge. panasonic models are very quiet.
