If you have decided to go with Plasma Technology, Then go with Samsung. As far as my Knowledge regarding Plasma, It is obviously outdated, It better to go With LED Technology.

I have a 50" Panasonic 1080P Plasma that looks and works great. I chose Panasonic because they acquired Pioneer's original plasma technology. Be careful with LED TV's since there are different configurations of the LED panel which can effect black levels.

I own panasonic vt50 series plasma 55" all i can say is stunning
It depends on budget, room size and lighting. For an lcd/led tv then a optimal distance eqation applies for the best seating distance from the display. With plasma this is not an issue.
Scan rates eg screen refresh times on plasma are faster and tend to be true whereas on some, even high end, lcd's they adavertise 600hz when in reality it is only 300hz times two eg even number lines 300 followed ny odd at 300.

one note of caution. your tv will need to be run in to prevent screen burn if you use plasma try to avoid prolonged static images for the first few weeks. You will get a bit of burn/ghosting but that will disappear.

The higher the scan rate the better onscreen quality movement and 3d result

In the flagship VT50 series the technology is incorporated along with panasonics own firmware. The results are stunning in both 2D and 3D The feild drive istelf is based on pioneer technologies andat 2500hz refresh its awsome my pride and joy.
