I hate to be that smartarse (although I do it a lot still) but... plasma is better at moving images than LCD, and has the better contrast due to producing its own light, rather than trying to filter out an always on backlight. The high-end LED TVs, that have localised dimming (i.e. an array of LEDs behind the image that it can switch on and off) are starting to approach plasma in black-levels and contrast.

And in general... Technika, bleurgh :S had a 22" in my bedroom once (briefly) and it had the most god-awful snail-paced UI I'd ever seen on a telly. I don't know if they're better now but it's really put me off... it's worth paying that bit more for at least a second-tier manufacturer such as LG, Samsung or Hitachi - much more usable.
