So got to pull the trigger today, either a P60VT60 /w 2 yr service plan $2300 or P60ST60 $1500?

Is the picture quality of the VT60 worth the extra $800?

That's subjective are you planning on getting the VT60 pro calibrated ? Are you a gamer ? The Vt60 has lower input lag, the apps are snappier..

Not being pro calibrated, will be using one of the disk based calibrations. I am a gamer, but not really FPS, more RPG and Adventure so not to worried about the imput lag. And dont care much for the apps as I will be running majority of the stuff off a mac mini. Strictly concerned about the picture quality.

I have been thinking about both sets as well. From all reports, PQ is about even, however I'm hearing about about severe IR on the ST60.

I would go with the ST60 then if you arent concernted about the input lag be careful with the gaming tho anything static has an IR potential.

Image Retention. And to be clear, it is not a problem with the ST60 or at least no more so than any other plasma TV.
