Okay, so I've gotten the green light from the boss to go ahead with a new TV purchase (woo hoo!). Here are my questions:
1. The local store here (Video Only) has the 65" VT60 in stock and is willing to sell it for less than I've seen other places selling it for. It's a heck of a price, but other than bells and whistles, is is giving me a lot more than the ST60? I'm most concerned about image quality - is the quality on the VT60 better than the already amazing ST60? I'm willing to pay a premium for it, but only if it's worth the cost.
2. We sit ~10 ft. away from our current 58" plasma. I was thinking about going with a 65" because it takes up about the same real estate on the wall, but I got to thinking that maybe 65" was too big? I read someone's comment here that said they wouldn't go bigger than 60" on a plasma unless they were sitting really far away. Should I save myself a grip of money and just got with a 60" ST60? I've read over and over that it's a big-time bargain for the quality.
3. If I go with the VT60, do the speakers come pre-attached? I know it sounds funny, but I didn't like the way they stuck out from the TV. If I'm getting a TV of that quality, I'm not going to be using the built in speakers :-) Not a show stopper if the consensus is "go with the VT60" but something I wanted to check in about.
Thanks in advance.
