Here is my observtions. I think the GT looks better. slimmer look around the box.
I think so too. But i could certainly live with the ST30's bezel - it's a huge improvement over last year's S2 and GT25 bezels.
I was told by one guy it has different glass then ST, and VT has the pro glass. Anyone heard this before?
ST and GT both have the same exact glass and AR Filter. VT has a better AR Filter.
Another guy told me ST and GT have same glass?
He is correct.
I thought the gt had a better picture, but i saw the ST at BB and GT at another store.
The GT30 should have a slightly better picture than the ST30.
Question is the VT worth the $500 diff between the GT model?
That's up to the individual, based on their wants and needs and how much value they put on them. Movie buffs would probably be willing to go with the VT30, HD TV watchers maybe not so much.
I wish the st had the extra hdmi, and slimmer frame.
You can get an inexpensive 2x1 or 3x1 HDMI switcher for less that $20 to connect your extra/non-critical HDMI devices to one of the three inputs.
What is the floating issue you guys are talking about?
It's been dubbed "Fluctuating Brightness" or "Fluctuating Gamma" and seems to be more prevalent on the GT30. There is a thread about it, and it's also discussed heavily in the Official GT30 thread if you want to read up on it.
Also, I hear Toshiba use the same tech, and there glasses are more comfy, and work on panny 3d's...might be worth buying on amazon and if they don't return them. When i was watching 3d on panny, the glasses keep flashing a bright light or bright for a second or so, the guy told me the batteries were low...True?
