Yes. But I must stress that you have to have really good light control or not be neurotic about reflections. In my case, I could not control the light because I have an open doorway to another room at 8:00 from the TV (imagine that in watching the TV, you are at 6:00).
If the light is on in that other room, I would get a very strong mirror like reflection on the S60.
I was sitting about 8 feet from the television and with the pot lights on above me, I could see a mirror quality reflection of myself during dark scenes, or in a news announcers clothes if were wearing a dark outfit.
I don't want to have to watch TV in complete darkness, so I swapped the S60 for an ST60.
The ST60 is less reflective such that overhead lights are not an issue. And the reflection from the other room (when that room's lights are on) is very muted, no longer mirror quality.
There is still some reflection that pops up in the ST60, but it is very muted and dark outlines at best. And this is only present when the room is fully lit.
In other words, I am very pleased with the AR qualities of the ST60 (and hopefully for others, the S64 shares this quality).
Sorry for the overly detailed ambient light detail, but I want to be clear that I don't think the S60 is good for just any situation where you can close a light or close a blind. You've got to have pretty good control of the environment (basement would be perfect, I think, or a room with lights to the side that has a door that can close).
However, the image is good, so if you can manage to make lighting work for you, I would very much endorse an S60.
