Well , I`m looking at LED and not even thinking about Plasma.
However , Panny does make a very good plasma tv , my sisters has one a few years old and it does have a very nice picture.
I know they ( plasma`s as a whole ) have improved since I had the old Sony XS , but I still don`t trust them as far as burn in.
Some will say it is not an issue anymore , but for me , it`s still there and why take a chance.
With LCD you don`t have that issue.
If you just want a great picture with really good blacks , then plasma may be the way to go.
But if you plan on using a computer with it or any static images , I would have to say the WT would be the best way to go.
I have a Mac-Mini hooked up to my XBR-2 and I can tell you unless they have found a way to change the font`s , web surfing is better on a notebook or table top computer.
As far as internet apps , I`m sure they are good , but you still need processing power for any real internet stuff.
Just something else to think about !!
