I've narrowed my search to these two sets. The 60GT is $1899 right now on Amazon, and the 65ST is $2145, also on Amazon. These are at the very top of my budget and I can't go any higher.
The viewing distance in my living room where this TV will be going is 11 or 12 feet. At that distance, would you recommend a 60 or 65? Mainly watching HD cable, with occasional Blu Ray and PS3 gaming thrown in, hence my concern with going too large to enjoy the compressed cable signal. We're in our late 20s and have great vision.
I've read all the reviews and info and know the advantages of the GT vs the ST. The THX modes would be nice (though I plan to do a simple calibration with the Disney WOW disc either way) and I like the aesthetics of the GT a bit more, but I'm not sure if it's worth giving up 5" of screen size or if 60" would actually be more appropriate considering what we watch most often. This is also a pretty bright/open room during the day.
Thanks for any input!
