    Comparing plasma to LCD has always struck me as a little unfair as I believe you can't really make a direct comparison. It makes it a little hard to compare as the two technologies are so different. It always strikes me as odd when reviewers compare an LCD to plasma, especially for black levels, and then write off the LCD because it didn't measure up. What did they expect?
    Anyway, I am a little bias, so you might not want to listen to everything I say. I'm an LCD owner, and a generally happy one.
    One plus point for LCD is that they don't - or shouldn't - suffer from screen burn. As you know, many TV companies insist on having a logo on the screen and this can cause problems for some plasma models. This prolonged exposure to a static image can leave a permanent mark on the panel. It's a reason why gamers shy away from plasmas. Too many static images on screen. A lot of modern plasma models have features to help reduce or eliminate screen burn, but it is a worry for so many plasma owners. LCD screens do not need the extra TLC.
    LCD's can suffer from motion blur or very brief image retention. Fast moving scenes have been known to leave trails or the remnants of a previous frame on the screen for a second or so, until the pixels catch up with themselves.
    Technically, a plasma screen shouldn't suffer this as it has no pixels to control/open/close. A plasma screen is all dots of lighted gas blinking on and off to create a picture, like the old CRT sets. (not entirely accurate, but I'm in the right area, I hope).
    Some people are sensitive to phosphor trails created by some plasma sets. Some plasma sets are more prone to creating phosphor trails than others.
    Blacks will always be better on plasma over current LCD models (unless the new LED sets make a difference). This is because plasmas have that twinkling lighted gas. It's either charged or not, illuminated or not. LCD's have a backlight behind a screen of twisting pixels. The backlight is always on, so light may pass through closed pixels causing blacks to look greyer. Depending on your own eyes and viewing arrangements can determine how black is black from one panel to another, regardless of a panel's performance. To the 'experts' black is grey on an LCD. But grey still looks black on a good LCD panel.
    LCD panels are known to cost less to operate over plasma screens which seem to use a lot of energy. A lot of this energy is also burnt off as heat. Pasmas tend to get much hotter than LCD screens.
    Plasma screens are heavier than LCD due to the use of glass. It does make a plasma slightly less fragile with regards to probing fingers or sharp objects which can easily pierce an LCD panel. The extra weight of a plasma can cause problems if wall mounting.
    As a good, all round, general purpose screen, I would go with the LCD as it is less problematic with todays logo's on every channel and panel performances have improved.
    If I were to only watch movies via a dvd/blu-ray player, I would choose a plasma, if nothing more than a slight improvement in picture quality.

    I would get a refund from Pixmania if I were you. Seems a lot of our forum members are having problems. Read this thread for the reasons why. http://www.avforums.com/forums/lg-owners-forum/909170-lg-32-7000-pixmania-driving-me-nuts.html
