of lighting that was the main reason but for me it is a huge factor as I do watch TV with the lights on.
I don't have a lot of experience with plasma so I don't know if I ever witness phosphir trails.
As for the blacks, plasma don't perform well in a light up environement. If you as me, the hx909 as the best black I have ever seen, as long as you are on axis, straight in front of the screen. better than the VT25.
Blacks are better with the VT25 and G25 when in a darker room. Keep in mind that black do rise after some times on panasonics's plasma so depending on how many hours the demo as been lighted up in store, the blacks could be worst than what you will get when you purchased it. I did owned a G25 for a week and my set didn't buzzed. If it wasn't for the flickering, I'd still own that TV. Plasma do have a softer picture VS LCDs. you have to get used to it but if you feed good source to the G25, it's a really beautifull set.
In my case, right now, my best bet remains the 46hx909. It fills all my needs, except the price tag. I have the money, it's just a pretty big investement but I am getting tired of waiting and searching, I have been for 8 months now. Waiting another 12 months seems like an eternity...
