It's been mentioned, but maybe I missed the exact height measurement. Just how high up is your plasma? I will probably have my TV up quite high also.
Thanks. The stand is right around 3 feet tall. I want to say 37". There is a little molding on the back so the back of the TV stand is up further than the front so that angles it down toward the seating. If it was any higher I would probably put it on the wall so I could angle it more. I only sit about 7 feet away from it so it had to be angled down some.
Luckily I didn't have to worry about which model to get. The VT was too expensive and from the reviews the GT was not worth the extra money to me. If I was going to spend more I would have gotten the 60ST30. I think the ST is amazing, especially for the price. Luckily mine didn't have the fluctuating brightness issue so I don't have to call Panasonic and have them come out and fix it. I'm not a videophile so I really don't need anything better than the ST. The VT is nice but it would be a waste for me because I probably wouldn't notice much of a difference. I'm more into audio but I had to replace my little Samsung 40. I'm hoping to have a dedicated theater room at some point so I can get a nice projector but until the ST is everything I need. Good luck with your decision.
