Thanks. Usage will be casual viewing of streaming movies and programs streamed from AppleTV, mac mini, live comcast cable. Hockey and baseball are popular around the house.
We'll probably add a blue ray player once we buy this 65" plasma but the fact we don't own one now and watch most of our content on a 34" Vizio LCD probably tells you something about our standards for image quality...
Local video store is running a deal on Panny 65" VT30 ($2,399). Which is a better deal, the VT30 or a ST50 at $2,100? They are also running an ST30 at $1,799 but the PQ just doesn't seem as crisp.
My first big plasma. Thanks in advance.
I would go ST50
Time Warner Cable/Panasonic UB900/ Roku Premiere +/Sony S780 Soundbar/Harmony 650
Calman Enthusiast/Chromapure Standard with Auto Cal
I have the VT30 and coming from 42 inch G10, it is leaps and bounds. if you have the space to accomdate the 65, i would definitly go for the 65.
when i got my Vt30 55 inch early this year, the ST as compared is close but the VT offer more adjustments. IF the cost of the 65 VT30 was withing my spending range, i would have jump it , but not
so i decided to go for the 55 as my place is limited in size. BUT from a 42 to 55 , it was really really nice.
so as i said earlier, if you have the space, go for the largest screen you can fit on your place.
