Higher refresh rate (600Hz for plasma vs 120 or 240 Hz for LCD/LED) apparently doesn't make it through the filter in most peoples' mind, even though it's one of the most important specs.
I heard rumors that that might happen. We just picked up a nice little 50" Panasonic ST60 Plasma for the living room (lots of off-angle). Nice display once the break in time was behind us. That said, I have no complaints with our 55" Samsung LN55a950. I know many of them had problems. But ours still looks great in the media room nearly five years and counting.
