Many plasmas seemed really washed-out, except some really high-end ones (2 times above my price range). Also 240 W power consumption is a big difference to 500W + for plasma TVs.

They did not have Philips 47" LCD on stock though... So I went with Samsung LCD.
You cannot compare plasmas to lcds in bright showrooms due to the fact that bright rooms favor LCDs(makes them darker while the plasmas get washed out). Plasma is still at least two years ahead of the lcds, which are getting better, but no where near plasma quality.
