Used to. I'm now in Riverview which is east of Tampa.

The biggest winner on picture quality I have seen so far on this beauty is the opening scenes of The Avengers- specifically the details in Sam Jackson's leather jacket and the darkness in those areas (and the amazing amounts of detail I had never seen before!)

Anyone else have a recommendation to check out right away?

I'm watching Pan's Labyrinth right now which is a perfect movie to burn the TV in (16:9). It's beautiful and very, very dark too...

I received my ZT60 on saturday... while I began to run slides I noticed that one inch from the top to bottom on the right edge has a dark tint compared to the rest of the TV. I find it quite concerning as only slides and blue ray have run on the TV. I cant imagine this is a IR issue. Any thoughts? Help would very appreciated

Already watched it last night. Looked fantastic! Can't see it in 3d so may buy an Oppo bdp103 and run 2 HDMI cables from it in the near future. (Amp is HDMI 1.3a only...)

Has anyone mounted theirs up yet? If so, what size screws did it take for the mount - M8x40? (I'm too impatient, want to get everything set up and waiting for it).

Everyone seemed to be saying they'd get a ZT, if they had the cash and had to pick from this year's offerings at the UK shootout last weekend:

http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/zt65-kuro-201305283044.htm

Also seemed like the Kuro they had was even better than the one at the US shootout!

VT60 & VT25. It's brighter than both in my opinion. It also takes on less glare.

Still just sitting here watching slides but I am astonished on the panels ability to block light and prevent reflections

So I went ahead and set up an exchange of my 65 VT60 for a 65 ZT60 since I have a lot of ambient light. June 8th can not come soon enough!

That's awfully nice of Best Buy to accommodate. What are they up-charging for the ZT?

Seems mostly southerners getting this - is this cause they're being ground-shipped from Mexico?

Any North-Easterners get their sets yet??

Im just waiting to see the first New York/Massachusetts sets delivered so I can infer us canucks won't be far behind!

I am in Canada, and my 65ZT60 is going to be here in the next couple of hours!! I am upgrading from a 65VT50. I will post some impressions about it later. I will let you know how much of a difference the ZT is over the VT50.

Yes, please do. That would be a great help to me at least as I'm upgrading from a 65VT50 to a 65ZT60 as well.

PS - Besides I like your alias as I have two Velodyne in my system and have used only Velodyne since 2000.

Is the fan noise noticeable on your VT60?

What's the MSRP of the ZT60? I checked both panasonic.ca and futureshop.ca and neither web site has the ZT60 listed yet.
