It really depends on what you will be using it for. The newer LCDs are excellent and offer better versatility for someone who is going to use it heavily with with the PC and video games. You won't have to worry about latency. Nevertheless, if you are primarily a HD TV and movie viewer, high end plasma continues to offer the best picture quality.
I don't think you'll be disappointed with a high end LCD or plasma. Check out the Sony XBR2/3 and the new Sharps for LCD, and check out the Pioneers and Panasonics for plasma. The LCDs are much more affordable.
