Thought process help needed:

On a certain website, the 65" GT50 and VT50 are at list price. So the GT is quite expensive, but once one thinks the GT is what one wants, then the VT is acceptably...

Is there any reason to believe that the VT50 would be any more technologically risky than the GT50 or ST50? It has a few additional techs as often discussed, but what do people think of the merits...

Any more people want to chime in on this? If they are so popular, should there not be more posts, or are there multiple "official" posts. Would love to hear more reviews!
