My GT performs well enough except that a bigger picture would help for 3D. There also seems to be something missing in the 3D performance when compared to a VT25 I saw.
My question is, does the VT30 have any feature that makes its 3D performance significantly better than the GT30?
If you are upgrading from a GT25, any of the VT series will blow your old TV away. With that in mind, The "only" difference between VT30 and the GT30 is the the VT30 has RS232 port and all the hardware/software. This comes in handy when or if you have it calibrated. Both VT30 and GT30 have 3DTHX mode. The VT30 has the infinat black pro panel, the GT30 does not. THat is it. Period. Those two TV's are very close in features and almost produce the same picture sitting side-by-side. I am fond of THX, so I am preaching to the masses.
I purchased the 65VT30 only for resale value plus bragging rights.
Besides, you can pick up any of the VT plasma's now for discounted prices compared to when I purchased mine. My only suggestion is this, if you can, I would pay the extra money and get the VT30. You can get a good price if you shop around. If you cannot afford it the GT30 is a good model.
