After getting home last night from work and watching more high quality HD movies, I still couldn't believe the PQ on the VT60. I picture to me is so amazing that it just draws me in with all thoughts fading away regarding whether some aspect of the PQ could be better or if the ZT60 or some other display would have been a better choice. I can control all outside light so to me, the VT60 provides plenty bright enough of a picture.
It will be interesting what other professionals say about the VT60 in the upcoming weeks and months along with the detailed results of the shootout. This will be more to read out of curiosity because all I know is that I finally have the level of PQ that I always wanted. Being an owner of a Pioneer Elite, I'm considering the VT60 PQ being reference quality IMHO.
I have paid to have every display professionally calibrated but honestly I really don't know how much more could be improved. The PQ of my VT60 is leagues past the PQ of the VT30 that died and it was calibrated by one of the best, waited until he did his tour of my state to have it done even. It seems some have posted agreeing how much they are also blown away by the PQ. It is all there; inky blacks, spot on colors, great shadow detail, plenty of sharpness to the picture, bright enough picture (except for those that prefer LCD typ of brightness then better to look elsewhere), almost a 3D look to the 2D HD PQ since depth of picture is amazing, clean picture, etc.
Honestly for those sitting on the fence, this seems to be the year not to wait any longer whether the VT60 or one of the other top displays.
