I bought a plasma because of all plasma pushing as being the best. After owning for over a week, I found the opposite. With LED LCD, with local dimming, clouding can be alleiviated and flash lighting is minimal to rare.
I hated plasma because of dither noise, IR that was slow going away and hurt the pq, the irritating flickering from the ABL issue (along with brightness strobing), the pq ruining reflective screens, the low brightness output, the extreme heat output that messed up my thermostat, and inferior black levels opposed to popular belief.
Some may like their plasma, I don't. The only benefit SOMETIMES is the lower price.
I feel bad that I set up my friend with a Panasonic 50ST30 but at that time, I didn't know, or had experienced plasma technology to know of the problems. Then again, to less discerning eyes, these problems can be over looked for the cheaper price.
