Plasma TVís arenít going away anytime soon, theyíre still manufacturing rear projection TVís for goodness sake. Each displays do have their proís & conís. IMO OLED will be the future.

We just sold our Toshiba 32HL67U and purchased a new Panasonic TH-42PX80U plasma. Its still going through the burn in process but even at the default viewing profiles it looks awesome, especially when watching HD media. The blacks are almost too black at times, its very smooth and Panny is using new anti glare filters on their 2008 models that seem to work really well. All in all weíre happy with our purchase.
There is no such thing as too black, what you are seeing is black crush.
