Just bought the 60GT50. Couldn't be happier.. I believe you can never get too big a TV, especially when it's plasma. I have a my 60" mounted over a fireplace, andgled down. I wish I could go 65" but the mantel is in the way. I even went "phantom center" so I didn't have to sacrifice any tv space for the center channel. I sit about 16' from the tv.
I'm using the THX setting, and it's phenominal for movies, but not sure about sports..
