Well I have decided to return my sharp elite do to pulsing and I have it down to the vt50 or st50. I have read the vt can hit up to 104 fl or so and the st50 can hit over 130 fl. Has anyone seen these sets side by side and could see the difference in real world content. I want to add I do not ever plan on getting the set professionally calibrated. I'm thinking about the brightness difference mostly because of 3d viewing. I know the blacks are slightly better on the vt but I do like pop in the picture so the st would be better in that area. Any thoughts?
