Here's the short of it:
iTV: May or may not happen (recall how many years we've been waiting for iPhone nano or iPad non).
LED-backlit LCDs: best LCDs out there. Bright, clear, lowest power consumption of TV types. Doesn't have the deep blacks of plasma or OLED. Cost is pretty good. I like my Samsung.
Plasma: I believe burn-ins are a thing of the past. Good blacks, sharp picture. Heat is an issue, which means power consumption is, too. Good bang for buck.
"Standard" LCDs. Unless you are just looking for a budget TV, dammit don't get one.
Definitely do research on TVs. Check out sales and same-as-cash programs. Don't go with less than 120Hz unless you are on a tight budget. 720p is OK for 32" range if you're going to be a good distance away. Above that, you really need 1080p.
Research your Internet capability options. If you have an Xbox 360 and Apple TV, will paying more for those on the TV help? They're almost standard now, but consider that when making a pick. Also see whether it comes with a WiFi dongle or whether that's another $80 (ripoff!).
