Panasonic TH50PZ77U (plasma)
Samsung LN-T5271F (lcd)
Sony KDL-52XBR4 (lcd)
Sharp LC-52D92U (lcd)
Reading tons of reviews suggested that the Pioneer Kuro PDP-5010FD was the best.
Going to many many stores/installers and personally looking lead me to agree that the Pioneer Kuro PDP-5010FD is the best.
Admittedly, the difference was very small and hard to discern once the TVs were all setup correctly.
2 things most affecting my choice:
No Motion Blur or Artifacts (why I chose Plasma over all the LCDs)
Blacker than black black levels (why I chose Pioneer Kuro over Panasonic)
With the Pioneer Kuro PDP-5010FD... I won't have to upgrade until Corneal/Retina nanotech 3D projection is available (or I win the lottery and get a 2160p display)
I think you should at least look at a Mitsubishi LCD. I really think they have the best PQ of LCD. I think Pioneer has always been best in Plasma, after dropping RPTV, that's what they are all about for display.
