Plasma is limited to around 60Hz anyway - the panels may be driven up to 3000Hz FFD for the high end Panasonic plasmas but that's mostly marketing nonsense - there are only 60 different images per second.
With new plasmas, you've got aggressive ABL which always annoys me when I'm watching. My older 2008 Panasonic hardly has any ABL -- but this comes at the expense of more energy consumption (up to 600W for a 46"!)
Black levels don't show well in shops, nor do reflective screens.
LCD has a place imo. For 42 inch and below, for people who do not mind about having average picture quality because they just want a TV.
