Hi all, I am thinking of buying a Panasonic TC-P65GT50, but I am having a hard time finding out about glare. How does this handle glare compared with other models, and does the screen have an anti-glare finish or is it "glossy" for lack of a better tern?
Thanks!

All plasmas are "glossy". I would recommend the VT50 if glare is a major concern. It has a much better filter than the GT50.

Indecision may or may not be my problem.

It has an Anti-Glare/Anti-Reflective Louver Filter but is still somewhat reflective if you have a window or light fixture behind you that gets reflected in the screen. It has the exact same AR Filter as the ST50 and VT50. The U50 and UT50 have no AR Filter at all and are a lot more reflective. The Samsung PNE6500/7000/8000 have very similar AR Filters.

Just go to some stores and compare the reflectivity of the ST50/GT50/VT50 to that of the U50/UT50/Most LED LCD models. The only TVs that are less reflective than the ST50/GT50/VT50/PNE6500/7000/8000 are the few remaining Matte-Screen LCDs and LED LCD TVs.
