I think I would have been happy with any of these TV's but in the end I decided to go with the Panasonic VT60 60 inch.
The 60 inch GT50 is a great TV but I could not justify spending that when the ST60 65 inch was the same price so that canceled out the GT50.
Next was basically will the ST60 keep me happy or do I need to spend a little more.
This decision came down to the input lag, I’m a big fan of FPS games and having friends over to play a lot so that made me nervous. This also eliminated the F8500 for me as that TV lags even more than the ST60
The TV will also be in a room with large windows and get some light during the day. The VT seems to handle reflections better with the additional filter so that helped my decision.
I had a very hard time deciding between a 65inch VT50 and the 60 inch VT60 at the same price. I finally decided to go with the new technology as they dropped the TV below their cost if I got warranty. I figured it was worth it so I dropped 3200 all in with taxes and warranty.
I figure this will be the last expensive TV I will buy before I’m married so better make it a good one!
I will be picking it up on the weekend!
Congrats on the VT60 , you made a good choice. I bought my GT50 last year and I'm still wowed with the performance and picture quality. Panasonic Plasma is a great choice.
