Plasma isn't really practical at higher resolutions and bigger sizes. By a matter of chemical properties alone, LCD lasts far far longer than anything phosphor based, which includes both CRT and plasma. LCD is vastly more energy efficient, cost efficient, and size/weight efficient than plasma.

IMO the better quality technology in LCD vs plasma is clearly LCD. I knew from years back that LCD would eventually replace plasma for this reason. Likewise, OLED will one day replace LCD for similar reasons.
