From a technical side the Plasma's should be brighter. A plasma display pixel generates it's own light, and LCD is purely transmissive and they have a back-light panel which shines through the actual display panel.

I suspect at the end of the day 'what is better' is going to be purely subjective, go to the stores, ignore the sales reps and try to get a feel for screens. (Also remembering the stores lighting will be nothing like your home).

plasma is good but pretty warm and high power consumption.
today saw the cheapest 42 inches plasma is $2Kplus at Courts.

Something to take note of Plasma TV, they tend to have burn-in effect if the image left unchanged for abt 10 to 20 mins. I'm into the LCD TV development, we did some testing with Plasma. After just 30 mins of displaying a high contrast still image it left a permanent burn-in effect. Life span, power consumption and heat are also factors to consider.

Something that LCD TV really standout is resolution especially when you view high res pictures.

Not quite for new generation of plasma tv like the Panasonic Viera series which are less prone to screen burn-in as long as you stick to its recommended burn-in procedure.
Another thing is that the logo usually goes off during commercial breaks giving that part of the screen a chance to "relax itself", and also judging from the amount of commercials we had on free-to-air tv programmes, I dun think it's really a problem at all.
