At this point I've been persuaded that the basic picture quality of Panasonic's better Plasma units makes this the way to go. I was originally going to get the TC-P60GT50 as representing the best "bang for the buck" but when at a local store this evening, I pushed them for the best price on the TC-P65VT50, and they discounted it pretty deeply. But it's still $1,000 more than a very aggressively priced 60" GT50.
I know this is ultimately an unanswerable question, and different people will have different opinions, but I would be interested in how others would approach it:
Is the 65" VT50 worth an additional $1k over the 60" GT50?
I realize the 65" GT50 would be an inbetween option, but I figure if I'm going to go half the way, I might as well go all the way to the VT50.
All perspectives appreciated.
You will not see much difference in picture quality other than that it will be 5" bigger. HD and Bluray will look Incredible in 65" but SD will look worse in 65" compared to the 60". Unless you are planning on getting the VT professionally calibrated I wouldn't pay an extra 1k on it. The GT is incredible close to the VT, picture wise. I would rather spend the extra grand on the Oppo 93 or panasonic 500 bluray player. Or take a nice Vacation.
But that's just my opinion.
