Looking at LCD up to £700 region

My top choice at the moment seems to be the Samsung LE40B650 (in one guise or another). However I'm still torn between LCD and Plasma with the Panasonic TX-P42S10B.

General seating position will be around 3.5m away (11 or 12 feet). We do have a sky dish so could go down the freesat route (and hence a NeoPDP screen from Panasonic), but I'm not sure if it's worth it or not. I guess I also don't really need 1080p due to the distance away that we'll be sitting, however it's seems a bit strange not to futureproof somewhat. Connections to the TV are an old XBox, Wii and (most importantly) the HTPC which has an HDMI out.

Any insights on whether the LCD is the one to go for, or whether the plasma is suitable?
 
I'm looking at getting a
LG 47LF7700

Looks great for 600 quid! freesat built in, full HD, 100hz usb etc... i know it aint 50 inch, i would prefer that, but it's only 3 inches smaller, can't complain for the price and stuff it's got.

£600? Cheapest I can see that for is around £840. The 37" version is around £525 and the 42" version around £650. So is the LG worth it? I guess the quality isn't quite going to be up to that of the Samsung or Panny.
