Improved over what brand/model?

Anybody know if the VT has a louvre filter like the Samsung F8500, or is that only on the ZT?
The VT60 does have the Louver Filter. Panasonic invented it a year or two before that. The VT60 and ZT60 also use the same Louver Filter. The ZT60 however has a slightly darker black filter which is why the ZT has slightly better black levels, and isn't quite as bright.

Samsung actually copied Panasonic's Louver Filter and used it on the F8500 and it's almost exactly the same.

Just a little FYI, The VT60 and ZT60 have the exact same AR Louver Filter as the ST60 and even the S64 Costco model. They only have one AR Filter that year, and used it on all four of those models.

So just the neutral density filter changed from model to model? The VT being the darkest and the ST being the lightest, which affected not only the black levels but the peak luminosity.

Thanks for the info.

I have a 50" ST60 and a 51" F8500 and the F8500 AR is much better at muting reflections. How would you rank the filters of the ZT, VT, ST & F8500?
