People are being fleeced by the LED-LCD tuff. In reality LED LCD is nothing more than a regular LCD which instead of being lit from the back by a CFL is now being lit by use of LEDs. though they have come far from what they were some time back, any LED LCD still can not match the picture quality and the natural colour representation of a Plasma. esp. Black levels which is no competition to Plasma. Also high speed action scenes or fast paced games are where plasma really shine. Sure there's a bit of a problem of more power consumption and glare/ reflection of the plasma surface since it's pure glass, but I then for greater picture quality these are small compromises.
