So I have a bit of a conundrum. Last year about this time i was looking into getting a brand new TV. I originally wanted 3D (hence my screen name) but came across a 111-FD in great condition and snatched it up from BB for $1999.
Reasoning was the praise it gets. "beautiful" "amazing" and "best TV ever made" I LOVE my TV, but even at 50" I'm still a little mad I didn't snatch the 151 for the extra $300 (I'm an idiot I know) I also figured 3D would cost more because I wanted the VT25 and no other TV. My personality is always get the best there is no matter how poor it makes you. I was also worried about 3D being gimmicky, not lasting very long and not being up to par. I never envisioned the content coming soon...
Well since than movies galore, channels galore and Sony is breaking my heart announcing every game in 3D. I never thought the PS3/360 could pump out 3D with the graphics of KZ, GT5 or the newly announced Uncharted 3.
My sister gets an employee purchase program from Panasonic, I can get a 54" VT25, Avatar, 2 glasses, blu ray player and it's $1900, normally $2500.
So here's my questions:
VT25 owners with knowledge, how's the image compare to 111-FD?
PS3 owners, have you seen PS3 games in 3D yet? (preferably GT5) and if so how is the effect?
Everyone else: Would you sell your 111-FD to get the VT25 for your primary TV?
I want to keep my Kuro, but I don't have space for 2 TV's of that size. I also don't want to spend the $2000 if I can get that for my current TV. I feel like getting rid of my TV is like selling a child you love dearly, lol. Any help, info and recommendations are welcome, thank you.
