well looked at the P65VT50 , I was going to go to day after work and see if I could get the price down more.
i had read a lot about the input lag on the ST60, but i don't do any gaming so i'm ok there.
i really didn't want to spend more than $500, out of my own pocket but i don't want to pass up a great deal.
here's the thing, my house is a bit small. 2 bed, 2 bath, 1 home theater. it use to be 3 bed 2 bath, but i have always been a home theater fanatic. my last tv was a Samsung HL-R5688W, may it forever rest in peace. i miss the PQ on that tv. anyways, i have two small boys (4yr, and 1yr) and need more space, so in the nest 5 yr i will be a) building a family room/home theater or b) buying a larger house. that's the only reason i was thinking to go with the F5300, because when i get the larger room a or b, i will be getting a real home theater display, and a screen come down in front of it.
i was at BB last night showing my wife the F5300, and she said ok, then i showed her the ST and she was like WOW, so i guess the F5300 is off the table.
