Same with the fan noise "issue", but that's a whole 'nother story

I could probably find IR on my LED if I looked hard enough for it after a long session of the Discovery Channel and the damn channel logo. Remember we are a small community of AV junkies when compared to the market at large. Heat between the ZT and VT should be similar, same processor and design on the backside with only the front glass being different. The warmest part of the back is right below the top left fan when facing the backside. It is warm to the touch but not hot, etc. I would buy the display that best fits your needs (room environment) and budget (if a factor). Both are good choices. I don't own an ST but based on my visits to BB, I would say since it lacks fans it tends to put out an equal amount of heat front/back. I wouldn't let the lack of fans on the ST keep me from buying it. Some might see no fans as an advantage, no fan noise. My 5020 had fans and any time I checked over the 4 years I used it the fans where never running regardless of how long I had it on. Hope this helps.
Very well put.
