Hey guys - this is my first post on this forum. I'm about to purchase this TV. My thinking is that a model like the ST50/GT50 might have suited my family better, due to day-time TV watching, but prices are prohibitive here in NZ. The 55" UT50 is NZ$2599 (US$1975) at today's exchange rate. Given the limited models for sale here, a model that includes the louver filter (GT50, as the ST50 is not available in 55" here) will cost me over NZ$3500
I can control ambient light somewhat with curtains, but during the day, the family does watch some TV. For serious movie watching - we either draw all the curtains, or watch at night with the lights out.
So I guess the question is - what can I expect with this TV? Is it going to cut it for casual watching during the day? Am I going to have issues with moderate natural light?
I have an older Panny 42", not a high-end set, but it does appear to have an AR coating. I find it hard to believe that my older, cheaper set has an AR coating, but the UT50 does not. Are we talking about a glass panel with no AR at all here? Really, in this day & age?
Any comments would be appreciated.
