I don't see anything in common between LG's OLED and Plasma TVs.
Today's OLED overpass today's PLASMA. The avsforum link I gave above confirms this. This said, I won't say that "One should buy OLED instead of PLASMA". The same way I can't tell that JVC projectors are better than Sony. One year ago I saw a 65" LG OLED in a store. I said "wow, if I had 3k$ to waste I would buy this jewel!". I bought a cheap projector instead. During the following weeks, I became totally fan of the projection, in the end I have spent more money for my projection setup than for this OLED TV. But I assume all flaws : less contrast, les sharpness, less... all. But all in all, the spectator's experience of a 150" (diagonal) screen seen from the sofa, in an optimized room, is way more crazy that these infinite black OLED TVs... This is my own opinion.
