It looked like plasma was going to win out 2 years ago, as LCD has problems with contrast and poor response times. Looks like they've fixed that though, as I've got a new Samsung HD LCD with 15000:1 contrast ratio, and 8ms response time. It's excellent!
Another big reason why you're starting to see more LCDs than plasmas in the shops now is the power consumption. Plasmas suck more power than both CRTs and LCDs (and as said above, are heavier). The coarser pixel size on a plasma also means that you can't get HD on a plasma for screen sizes <42"
