Video Question: Plazma or LCD???

Hi, I know we mainly enjoy talking about audio, but I may have to buy a TV soon. I am confused. I feel I am very knowledgeable on audio (thanks to many helpful people on this site), but I don't know squat about video.

I thought I had made up my mind to get a Sony LCD. But I recently saw a Pioneer Plazma and the color looked better than anything I had looked at in LCD's.

Which is better? I have been told that Pioneer is making the best HD TV's on the market today. Any opinions will be appreciated. Has anyone compared the Pioneer Plazma to the Sony LCD?
I have not purchased yet either. But in comparison between plasma and LCD using a movie (HD), the LCD slowed down human movement in the background (office scene) to avoid blurs which seemed unnatural. The plasma did not. Anyone else see the same thing or is it my imagination.
If LCD is way too bright, you may need to adjust the settings. There are usually 3 or 4 options (with various names) without even getting into the actual sub-menus.
I saw the Kuro 50'' ELITE KURO Plasma with a resolution of 1365 x 768 next to Sony's top of the line LCD at 1080p (1920 x 1080) and the 720p Pioneer was so much better than the Sony that I couldn't believe my eyes. In fact, I went into my audio dealer to look at audio equipment, and the Pioneer caught my eye right away. I knew right away I was looking at one of the best flat panels ever made and after I did a little research I found out that the Kuro Elite models ARE pretty much considered the best there is and as close to CRT performance as it gets.

I would take the 720p Pioneer over any 1080p on the market. I have not seen the 1080p Pioneer yet but I hear the resolution doesn't make that big of a difference unless you are very close to the screen--closer than most people would be.

From what I've seen, there is Pioneer Elite and then there is all the rest.
If you do the research over on avs forum they all point to the pioneer kuro series for best for the $$$. You can get a 50" for 1900$ or so at BB.

That's what i would buy except i have a lot of windows and lamps behind me. Anyone use a plasma in this circumstance and still happy?
