My general opinion is i prefer Backlit LED screens to Plamas. I prefer the sharpness of LCD's over the smoothness of Plasmas, my electicity bill also prefers LCD's (particulary LED lit ones) Edge lit LED LCD's dont really give the same blacks or contrast as a proper Backlit one, but are thinner & cheaper. Guess it depends on budget, but generally at the lower price range Plasma would be better as budget LED LCD's are generally the poorer Edgelit variety. Higher end LED LCD's with backlit LED can give very very good quality now with awesome blacks / contrast. This would get my vote.
