Personally i won't go on whatever is being sold more, as with the right marketing style u can even sell junk to people.
In india people just enter a shop and buy lcd, cause the shopkeeper recommends. There are very few users who dig deep before making buying decisions.
Technology, price , quality and picture wise Plasma is the best and beat's lcd any day. If you don't have one check out the picture at any one who owns one and you will understand what i mean. For home theater where u want screen sizes upto 50" plasma rocks.
Below 40" will recommend to go for Lcd as u don't get may plasma models at that price though u have few 37" models ....
What is the source of this info?some people might say "look the contrast levels of plasma are 15000:1 etc that is bull.
the best of the plasma produce only about 3600:1 which are expensive like the pioneer kuro and panasonic PY800H which is yet to be launched in india and no doubt be quite expensive,but plasma like panasonic PV8 make a contrast about 1800:1.

And the resolutions are not per sq inch, they are for the full screen.
