I think the best way to put it is that its all about the TV, not so much what is behind the display. The past few years running Panasonic has been making the best televisions in many market price points, those happen to be plasma. 2009 belonged to Samsung, they made some great LCDs. 2010/2011 were undoubtedly Panasonic, the ST/VT lines were an incredible value/performance proposition. 2012 will be interesting too, Panny made serious strides with brightness and improving glare filters for windowed rooms. That's not surprising though, they bought Pioneers patent portfolio who made legendary quality televisions that still sell for thousands of dollars today. They finally got their act on the the Q/A problems that had been dogging them. Samsung and LG making cheap plasmas at the bottom rung of the market certainly hasn't helped old consumer perceptions though.

OLED isn't a save all either, as someone else mentioned there are color accuracy problems and manufacturing costs are awful. Companies finally got to the point where its cheap to manufacturer LCD/Plasma and their margins there are suffering, I don't think they will be rushing to consumer sized OLEDs.
