Hi, I currently own a 50" v10. Since plasma are phasing out, i would like to upgrade my current plasma. The possibilities I have within my budget are a 55" st60 or a 60" gt50. (I also could get a65" gt50 for the same price as the 60", but its a floor model with at least 4000 hours, but without any burning ).
I use the television to watch tv and blu-ray. I also play once in a while (mainly rock band) but I'm not an hardcore gamer.
I just want to know if theres a noticeable difference between the st60 vs the gt 50 since they use the same panel.

Thanks for your time

Martin

The ST60 has deeper blacks and slightly better video processing.

I have a 46G10, 50GT50, and 55ST60. The only thing i don't like about my GT50 is that the image is WAY Softer than it is on my G10 and ST60 on all HD signal formats. This softness was the biggest single complaint among 2012 model owners on all models. During the first week or so i had the 55ST60 set up next to my 50GT50 with an HDMI splitter displaying the same sources and the ST60 has better processing and is much crisper and sharper than my GT50 is, and is also brighter, has deeper blacks, and better contrast. I bought the ST60 because it was my last chance to upgrade to a larger and reportedly better TV, but i didn't expect that the picture quality would be so much better than my otherwise great GT50. I'm so glad i snagged the ST60 before they discontinued them!
