Having had both (ZT & 151FD) side by side I could take either display, although I still think the Kuro is still a slightly better all around (PQ wise) display. It's a just more versatile in different lighting environments.

Now the funny thing is the Panasonic insider also believes the Kuro's are still superior. He still has his Kuros and said recently in comparison to 4K OLED: "Well I'd say the kuro is the pinnacle of current hd technology."

The only thing I like better about the current Pannys is the extra 5 inches. I will keep my 141, especially after D Nice lowered the blacks. The image is still superb. The reddish blacks have been eliminated as well. The good news is that should the 141 go on the fritz, I would be more than happy with either the VT or ZT which are both superb sets and more than able to tide me over to the days of an affordable 70 inch OLED. In fact, they come up just a hair short of the 141, they are THAT good.

Louder is NOT better!

^I couldn't imagine updowngrading grading with a black level that deep (0.0004 or lower fTL, I imagine). smile.gif Next stop for you (and me!): OLED

Mixdoc's comments about more versatility in bright room conditions are also sound and would be another reason to not let go of a 141FD/151FD/6020FD. 90% of my viewing is in a theater-like setting (lights low or off) and I am enjoying a 69% increase in screen size, so the upgrade to a ZT has not made me want for what I gave up.

As I gawk and cringe at those OLED prices over the next several years, I can only hope similar black level enhancement tricks are discovered for Panasonic's panels in the meantime.
