I love the 65ST60 (which Amazon just dropped the price about $120, and credited me), and did not originally see the VT60 as being worth $700 more. The features that seem of value to me are the:

- NeoPlasma black 3000 screen
- Slightly higher FFD
- Infinite Black Ultra panel
- Twice the number of gradation steps
- 1080 pure direct
- Vivid/Standard/Home Theater/THX bright room/THX cinema/Custom/Cinema/Professional 1 (ISF Day)/Professional 2 (ISF Night)
- DCI 98% Color Space
- Super Clear Resolution
- Dot Noise Reduction
- THX Mode 2D/3D
- isf Mode
- Hexa-Processing Engine
- Integrated camera
- Voice interaction
- Some additional Support Formats: AVCHD 3D/Progressive, SD-VIDEO, / MKV/MP4/M4v/FLV/3GPP/VRO/VOB/TS/PS, / MP3/AAC/FLAC/Apple Lossless/WAV, JPEG/MPO
- Bluetooth compatible
- One sheet of glass design

It's funny, when I started a long email to an expert I know, my question was "Are the VT ISF features worth $700 over the ST?", but after I write out all the features, there's more here than just ISF features. So my questions are:

a) What do the VT ISF features get me above the ST?
b) Would the price difference be worth it to you, and why/not?



Thanks much. Leaning towards ordering soon.
