So one thing i'd mention is matching resolution.
A 480p will look better on a 1080p display than it will on a 4k display. Even though upscaling has gotten vastly better it having to scale the imagine around 16 times where as the 1080p screen is scaling it 4 times. The bigger you stretch a low resolution source the worse off it looks. Hence dvds will probably look best on your 32 crt.
The plasma will simply use more power. They're pretty much as bad as crt in their high energy use. Emissive panels use more power.
If you turn on a low power mode you're throwing out picture quality. In all honesty power consumption from a tv should never be a realistic concern. Unless you're putting in over 5 hours a day it a moot point. In the price range of tvs you're looking at you really shouldnt be hurting in the power bill.
The later samsung plasma and pioneer plasma will have the thinnest bezel however edge to edge bezeless screen simply werent a thing when plasma where in. The ZT/VT is a over all much thinner tv than the oleds because even though the thinnest point of the oled is near paper then the base is huge with all its component in it.
