In the market for a large (55"+) tv and had pretty much been dead set on a Panasonic VT25 series and then saw this tv pop up on cnet and then started reading this forum. My local costco finally got theirs in today and set up the display (none for sale yet) and of course it looks bad with their source material - it is not feeding off a standalone player. I currently have the 58" vt25 on order from BB at a crazy price ($500 more than this model) but have one big issue - 3d pretty much is only good within a 10' range and the rec/media room in our new house is huge, so the 3d feature will probably hardly ever be used.
So my big question is this - has anyone compared the picture quality between this unit and the vt25's? I know they are completely different techs but am more worried about a awesome picture with "inky" blacks. Thanks in advance for your input.
