Right now I have a 54G20 TV and it has a good picture and I don't hear buzzing or experience any of the things I've read about Panasonic TV's here.
But, I'm wanting a larger TV. Of course it seems the 65VT30 would be great (haven't read up on "problems" yet), but then saw a 65ST30 for a good price on Costco's website. Also saw one at BB yesterday. Then they told me the 65GT30 was better than the ST30. OK ...
I'm confused about all the stuff I've been reading here. The VT30 is "very" expensive so my thinking was the GT30 maybe ...
1) Since I already have a G20 would the GT30 be about the same picture quality, or better than what I have, and,
2) if I go bigger (like 65") would the picture degrade on HD programming (and what about, God forbide, SD?)
3) and my last thought is about power consumption. Would the 65VT30 use more power than my 54G20? I ask because about 10 days ago I was "forced" into one of PG&E's Smartmeters and already my electric bill has jumped by $50. They told me it could double and triple.
Any thoughts on any of these three issues would help. TIA.
