I'll start by saying that my LG experience has been very different than yours, I have a 55" LCD that I use in my office as a PC monitior and for casual TV viewing. Great picture, razor sharp resolution and no troubles so far so take my opinion with a grain of salt.
I decided early on that I wanted a Plasma for 3D, just liked the picture better than similar sized LCD sets. I looked seriously at 60-63" offerings from Panansonic, Samsung and LG. Were all the top-of-the-line sets the same price, I'd buy the Panasonic VT series. But since they're not and given the advancements in the 2011 LG sets that deliver 90% of the performance (IMHO, especially in black levels) at a bargain price (< $1400 for 60" 3D), the PZ60550 was the best combination for me of performance, features and value.
Maybe not the "best" but damn good in my opinion...
