Plasmas have something called an ABL (Automatic Brightness limiter). Due to power consumption plasmas whites will "dim" when there's a bit of white (or bright colors) on the screen. So that's a strike against plasma in this regard.
However, like many I'm sure your viewpoint is taken from in store comparisons. However, in most circumstances I don't think people will be viewing in those dynamic models which are turned on in the stores (unless they want to burn their retinas
). However, when you get home and tone down the settings somewhat on the LCDs the difference isn't nearly as great.
LCDs still have an advantage in ambient light situations. However, in a dark room the B650/750s are no match for a Kuro. I've had both in my room and I have the B650 now (see the post above). And despite that C-Net review the B650 and B750 I had side by side in my media room there were no differences in black levels other than a little bit of black crush on the B750 over the B650 (and less blue hue in the picture but only to a certain extent).
