Define "most of the same qualities?"

The U50 from Panasonic is a solid performer, which doesn't come with 3D and the 2013 version of that FP will be the S60, which I'm sure will also be a great option. But neither of these hold a candle to the VT50.

But if you're looking for flagship type performance from an FP, it's going to come with 3D, regardless. That's the market today.

60F8000; RX-V367; TSi300 x2; YST-SW102; Harmony 650; Apple TV; Microsoft Xbox One Console; RF-HTS120;

xRite i1 Display Pro (OEM); CalMAN 5 Basic; ColorHCFR

3D is not a feature that you're really even paying extra for unless you buy the glasses.

HTPC: I3 2100, Radeon 6950.

Well they're ramming 3D down our throats in 2013 and making us pay extra for it whether we want it or not, since they're including two pair of 3D glasses with the TVs. I don't mind if the TV is 3D capable since that makes regular 2D picture quality better, but i don't like being forced to pay more for the expensive included glasses that i'll never use. They dropped the 4th HDMI input to save money, but i'm sure the two pair of glasses cost a lot more than that 4th HDMI input.

3D (stereo) is a very nice feature to have on a display like the VT50. However to be able to really appreciate this feature you probably need a 3D LUT cube calibration to give you very good PQ/detail plus the depth that only a HQ 3D Blu Ray can offer.
But then again this type of calibration if done right for 2D will be better than any normal calibration from a pro calibrator.

Also If you ever are thinking about selling this TV you will probably have a easier time selling it, having 3D.
