In the 50-55" plasma range, the Pioneer PRO-110FD is the best you're going to get. Second best is the PRO-1150HD (if you don't mind 720P). I list this as number two because the Elite Kuro will give you a better picture (WHEN CALIBRATED) than the non-elite models. Three and four are the PDP-5010FD and PDP-5080HD respectively.
If you want the best there is, either wait until the Pioneer 9Gs are available or start researching the PRO-110FD.
Also, if you want something at 60", you won't be disappointed with the PDP-6010FD or the PRO-150FD.
