Man, I can't see myself ever going for LCD over Plasma for my primary TV.
Agreed. The colors, lack of motion blur, and viewing angles are just too much to give up.

As for OLED tv's, I hope not. From what I understand, OLED's can lose like half their brightness in 5 years. Due this this, OLED's are great for smartphones and tablets that have an expected lifespan of 2-4 years tops so you won't notice it, but if your going to have a device that will be around longer, like a TV, it's not as good.
That's a very good point. OLED has some definite benefits, but it's still not at all clear that it can economically scale up to TV sizes. Or for that matter can the color issues can be resolved - both the initial color accuracy and the fact that uneven subpixel wear causes color accuracy to shift over time - which would be important for a larger device. It's worth keeping an eye on for sure, but don't start saving up for that OLED TV set or ignoring LCD/plasma quite yet.
