Check and see if the VT50 has a PC input. My ST60 does not -- and I have to live with that. Otherwise, a great panel.

i guess if you have an old computer that doesn't have hdmi output, it makes more sense to avoid a high quality display than to spend 60bux on a new video card...

having said that, i yanked the video card out of my desktop to use in a budget HTPC, and now run a vga cable into my bedroom tv because that's all the 9yr old mobo has to offer. so, while i certainly wouldn't make that my deciding factor, i do understand the benefit of a display with some legacy inputs.

Make sure it has an S-Video input

On a more serious note, it's impossible to make any sort of recommendation without knowing the OP's sources/content/requirements/needs/wants etc etc.

That said, i think the ST60 has an overall better picture in most categories, especially detail and sharpness. My 55ST60 outperforms my 50GT50.
