While I have a Samsung LN55C630, and would recommend another Samsung LCD TV to another, I'd say to go with the Sony. Just because of how much better it can possibly "connect" with future purchases. Get a PS3 or PS4 (when it comes out) and it could have special functions alongside the TV. Same with your receiver and other devices that will all be connected to each other.
Both are great though. Picture quality is amazing on both of those displays, and which ever way you go, you will be happy and it will be a great upgrade. But choose either Sony or Samsung.

I think 50" is the average here (at least with friends and family I know). I have a 46" in our bedroom (never used), a 42" in my daughters playroom (finally getting used to watch Elmo and other kids shows) and the 52 Samsung which will be donated to my dad once I get my new TV.
Thanks for the info on backlight bleeding, I was hoping that was a thing of the past as it seemed to be the biggest issue (even on the high end models). Does plasma suffer from any sort of bleeding or halo issues (I am assuming no due to the tech used)?
Backlight bleeding for the most part should be a thing of the past. If you do get one with some, return it. But most sets now are very very minimal if existant.
Plasma suffers from nothing at the moment, except higher electric bills
