You may get mixed responses on this...
Primarily the dual core processor would be for quicker "snappier" opening of "apps" and other parts of the viera connect suite. It HAS been suggested that it may do more than that though, helping with video processing, especially when it comes to the input lag "problem" with the ST60... This has yet to be proven/confirmed though...

It was in their system in- store even though its not on the website. Earliest delivery available was tomorrow, but we choose Saturday due to our schedule. I'm in Tampa, Fl. If that makes a difference.?

Price? And did you buy warranty? If so that price as well?

Wish i could give my little non professional review but im only at 52hrs with the prep slides. Only 48 more hours to go and i then i can give my little review. So far the TV looks pretty AWESOME on my tv stand so i give that a 10/10 lol

My guess is everything. Unless they have a separate video chip...

Seems like the big price differentiator between this model and the others is the chipset.

Hmm under 3d settings, 3d refresh rate is only available in 120hz, 100, and 96hz. Where is this 48hz some are claiming?

According to the owners manual the only 3 choices are the ones you listed there is no 48hz mode. I think people were saying they should compare it in 48hz mode but were unsure if the tv had it. You have confirmed that it does not then.

So I have a question. I'm running D-nice's slides right now and wanted to know would it be best to use them for my Xbox 360 as well? I want accurate color there too. Is it proper to use it on consoles too?

Thanks

Sorry, I went to bed last night during these questions. It was the Brandon store. The employee said their warehouse (that the stock was coming from) was only 45 minutes away so I think it's in Lakeland or somewhere close so maybe your store will pull from the same warehouse?

It was $1699 (same as Sears so I bit - if it goes down or amazon has lower price in the next 14 days I'll get a price adjustment) and yes 4 year warranty for $345 (I think - I am out of town for work now so receipt is at home). I remember the total was around $2174 with everything because they gave me $2200 for credit on the 24 month payment and it came close. Hope this helps.

The number computation for video processing has to be handled somewhere.

I'm seriously thinking about getting the 60" model. I have a 10 year old Samsung DLP which I love, but it's only 43", so the 60" would be a nice upgrade. Plus, it's still on it's original bulb, which I expect can go at any time - although I certainly never expected to get 10 years out of it. Now it's making some buzzing noise (probably the color wheel). Maybe the time is right for an upgrade.....

Ok so it looks like it doesn't have 48hz. That must be why the performance isn't matching the 50's with 3D. Maybe 96hz. Just isn't as smooth.

I would still like to hear some more impressions of 3D performance with bluray content.

I saw sears had it listed for one day (the day you bought it) at 1699. I believe it's $1499 now at sears so I would def check back. It's def $1499 as of now.

It's always been $1499 at checkout, but after taxes it brings it back up to around $1699.

Never heard anyone else mention it. I stand corrected. I thought they were panel prep slides. What purpose would they serve for an external source?

They don't serve any function on external devices. People here are clearly confused. Running these on your Xbox won't do anything. I think El Matador meant to say the slides TV's picture for the 360.

Not trying to be rude, but why wouldn't you buy from one of the numerous online retailers who have this for $1499 "out the door" (NO tax, free shipping)? Seems like you'd save a couple hundred dollars...

Could somebody please confirm if the ST60's have a 48hz option for regular 2D viewing? I know some folks don't like the flicker in this mode, but I love the "film" feel it simulates... Thanks!

Yes. I am clearly confused. The original question was could the slides be used to improve the color accuracy of an XBox. El Matadurr seems to think they can.

The 48hz mode is there for 2d...Dave from cnet mentioned it in his review.

Its 60hz,48hz and 96hz for 2d.

60hz,48,hz,96,100hz,120hz for 3d

Thank you! Much appreciated, and a big relief. I do 99% of my BD watching in that mode.

I thought you just got a vt50 after your V10 wet the bed.Or you just getting the ST60 for another room since it is really a great deal with alot of value.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!! Its time for an upgrade... I had a samaung dlp and it did the same thing. It's probably not the color wheel but the actual bracket itself.. I think its like a couple hundred bucks to replace and the bulp can be anywhere from 80-160... I would just upgrade if you can,,

Just bought a 60st60 at my local BB priced matched sears. $1499 plus tax= $1604 out the door. Rather spend a hundred to be able to have 0% for 24 months and a store to drive it to if it fails. IM PSYCHED!
