HLdan, it doesn't matter if the ZT60 is perfect and can eventually be had for the same price as a VT50, my wife would kill me if I even thought about upgrading so soon. Like you, I don't upgrade my electronics like a lot of people here do. My other two TV's are a Sony 50" LCD RPTV from 2006 and a Sony 32" XBR from 1995!!! I knew that no matter what I bought last year that this year something would beat it. It will always be that way and I don't let it bother me. I still have an amazing TV and I will enjoy it for as long as it lasts.
