I just bought a new house and I'm trying to decide between the 60VT60 and 60ZT60. According to CNET, the VT60 and ZT60 "deliver basically the same picture, including the same black levels, contrast, color and video processing, in dark home theater environments. The only difference arises when the lights come up. In a bright room the ZT60 maintains black levels and reduces reflections better than the VT60." Below are pics of the area where to plasma will be located and the plasma would not receive direct sun but there's two large windows that face 122 degrees SE. The living area is at the back of the house and I'm able to control the light coming from the windows via blinds and my wife plans to add curtains but there will still be some minor reflections.

Do you guys feel that the VT60 would be fine in this space? I apologize for my terrible iPad photos.







Here's a pic of the room prior to buying the house.
