Go for the Plasma if you have the money. LCD just plain suck.

You got it wrong dude... Plasma is terrible and fades with time. LCD is a lot clearer and dosen't lose it's contrast and colours over time.

there are different schools of thought for choosing the Plasma or the LCD TVs. plasma technology is said to have a shorter or more limited life span as compared to the LCD due to the fact of the plasma material burning out on the screen. of course, others will disagree with this. LCD technology is really crisp, but LCD technology has not quite advanced to very large tvs at this point (although the 26" LCD is really good). another disadvantage to the LCD is that it has a higher chance of breaking (but i'm sure you will not be constantly moving this around your house, so the risk isn't so great). in the end, it's usually still a personal preference. let me know what you decide.

If it's between a Plasma or LCD I would choose LCD because I think it is better in the long scheme of things.

Samsung LCD (Not mine) - Samsung LCD (Not mine)
Plasma is only used for big TVs, I don't think you can find a 26" plasma TV. So that answers your question about LCD/ Plasma. You should buy a known brand, and don't buy too cheap. I recently got a 40" Samsung LCD, I paid around $3000 for it, and it's great. Just remember you get what you pay for.
