If the Samsung F8500 proves to be on the same level all-around (or better- brightness...) as the ST60, then that's a big win for them. The decision between the VT60 or ZT60 and the F8500 is easy for anyone not viewing blu-ray in near broad daylight. The ST60 is looking like the clear bargain of the year.
