We still have a non-Elite Pioneer (5020) in the breakroom at work and I have to say it still looks better to me than any TV on the floor, and it isn't even calibrated. I did get to watch the PN64E8000 in the dark today and it was pretty damn impressive as far as blacks go, so hopes are high for the VT50.
