I want the Panasonic P60ST50 but don't need 3D or SMART features- I only need a screen. I am conisdering either the P60UT50 or the P60U50. Can anyone tell me the difference between the two and is their screen the same as the ST50? thanks.

The panels\screens are not the same....U50 is jsut a basic 50" 1080p monitor with no frills or add ons...with the UT50 you get a better screen, 3D Smart TV and dejudderer optioms....if all you want is a screen and dont care much about anything else then the U50 is what will fit your needs, jsut dont expect the same performance as an ST50.....

Thanks for your reply, When I say all I want is a screen, I mean a really good screen - ST50 or close to it. If the U50 and UT50 do not compare visually, I am inclined to get the ST- in a few months they should drop in price when the '60 series comes out. Yes?

They are dropping now and becoming harder to find, if you want too long you will be SOL.....But yes the ST trumps both the UT and U series TVs.......

Yes, i believe that I would not be happy with U or UT series since I am getting a 60". Yes, if I wait too long, I may not find an ST50, then I would have to settle on a ST60. That would be terrible.

Afaik ST50 is the lower model with the higher end Black Filter, missing wifi, and some calibration controls.

Some ppl might think its worth the $300 for that - esp if you want to get it professionally calibrated or intend to put it in a bright room

Well, we don't ever watch in a pitch black room, although we dim the overheads. The calibation is important to me, so i will look for an ST50, would like to see the price dip to around 1200 but I am not sure they will get that low before they are sold out.
