yeah...keep reading that the PQ is virtually the same in VT and ZT, yet ZT is $1100 more. Doesn't make sense. Looks like a 65" VT is the right choice for me.

Craig, besides Katzmaier's reviews, check the reviews for the ST60, VT60 and ZT60 here in Sound & Vision(now combined with Home Theater Magazine and showing improvements).

Also, in the November issue of Consumer Reports all three are recommended. The VT60 and ZT60 got the same test score of 73, and the ST60 got 72.

My view is that the VT60 and ZT60 don't appear to justify their added cost over the ST60, which is the best buy at about half the price.

Looks like the VT50 has the best 3d performance, according to that article.

Still think I'm going with the VT50. Thanks for the links and tips.

Your a lucky duck grin I would like to add one of those to my arsenal. Hopefully the week will pass quickly for you.

If it's being shipped to you, be sure to check its condition carefully. The first 60ST50 which was delivered to me ended up having the glass cracked all the way across.

The cracks were not visible until the TV had been completely set up and I probably wouldn't have seen them until I turned the TV on if I didn't accidentally happen to swing a flashlight across the glass which made them visible.

Turns out the TV had been dropped, really hard, on it's corner during shipment. The bottom edge of the corner of the TV was driven clear through the foam packaging all the way to the ground.

Fortunately, the company from which I purchased the TV (abt.com) came through like champs and delivered me a new TV as quickly as possible. The cracked one went back on the truck that delivered the replacement TV.

Ironically, the replacement TV's box was in much worse condition than the damaged TV's box and I accepted and opened it with some trepidation. Luckily it was pristine.

You're welcome. I was having trouble uploading photos to photobucket, still am. Had to upload these from my spare computer. Haven't figured out the problem yet. Frustrating.





Purchase of this new TV was made possible by the selling of the 2800 record albums I had accumulated as a radio disc jockey in the early 1970s.
