Hello,I bought the Panny GT 50, to me it looked just as nice as the VT, with a few less bells and whistles.
Yes, I think there are definitely pros and cons with each type of set.I still see occasional pro and con on Plasma sets. Overall best for off-axis viewing but they still seem to run awfully hot, creating an additional air conditioning load. I also see some mention in the plasma discussion threads about image retention. Is that the politically correct way of describing what used to be known as burn-in? We just purchased one of the new Sammy ES8000's (LCD) and once calibrated it's pretty spectacular and seems to not have the heat issue.
