So my 52" Sammy LCD thats only 3.5 years old, and on its second panel is dieing.
I am going plasma as pq is priority 1 for me.
I've narrowed it down to a 55" either a VT50, or GT50.
As of today the GT50 is nearly $1,000.00 LESS than the VT50. It seems the GT50 is being marked down right now by major retailers, VT is not.
I do not necessarily want to start a price discussion, but rather a discussion regarding relative values of these two great sets.
I am fully aware of the spec differences between the two. (Is the VT50the only one of the two that supports 24p Cinematic Playback 96 Hz/48 Hz?)
So here are my questions;
1.) Right now, is the VT50 really worth $900.00+ more than the GT50?
2.) Is there a chance the VT50 could be marked down like the GT50?
3.) If I wait till the Super Bowl sale season instead, do I run a chance of either of these sets not being in stock?
Thanks for your input.
