I know the new models of Panasonic Plasma TVs are going to be coming out soon but is there a consensus about which model was better? And what features did the GT model have that the ST model didn't have?

So how does the picture quality of the GT compare to the ST? I got the 50-inch ST and its the best picture i've ever seen.

Nearly identical, extremely slight edge to the GT50.

In Custom, Cinema, Standard, and Vivid picture modes the two are virtually identical, since internally they are the same TV. The GT50 adds the THX picture modes that the ST50 obviously doesn't have and they look great, but otherwise the two look exactly the same.

The one thing that made no sense to me with last years Panasonic Plasma TVs was including wi-fi and a browser yet the browser doesn't support Flash. Why make a TV that can surf the internet yet can't access half of the web because it doesn't support Flash and therefore you can't watch video's? Just idiotic.

I watched the newest Iron Man 3 trailer through PC Mag the other day and it is flash- surprised the hell out of me.

According to a Panasonic insider, the GT will benefit from the dual core processor in the form of an update this year.
