Sorry if this is redundant, but I have been trying to get a final answer on this combing through 100's of pages of threads.

I recently returned my 65VT50 in on a 65VT60 due to burn-in issues on the VT50 (rip best buy all you like, but they were awesome about this for me).

So I immediately loved the picture on the VT60, but also noticed like many how much louder it was than the VT50 (I don't mind some fan noise as I have had a 850 series plasma for 5 years now). But while running burn in slides it was immediately apparant how much louder the VT60 was.

I am thinking mine likely has the new kit (serial number starts in 319 and I got it mid-october). It's on the wall and I hate to pull it down to look for the MFG date (though I will here soon).

But, no question it's louder than the VT50.

Does the ST series have fans or not? I looked at one in a store, but it has a different back on it, and frankly the store is so loud it's hard to tell.

I may return this VT and step down to the ST. So, just looking for a definitive answer. The fan noise is driving me a bit nuts.

Thanks. I don't game, my room has 100% black-out capabilities, and I run it through my AV system... so for me it's just a panel.

VT and ZT are the two models this year from Panasonic that use fans for cooling. The lower end models do not beginning with the ST and moving down to the S or X if you're considering a 720p model.
