Actually I can't think of anywhere I told someone not to buy a VT50 or plasma for that matter. If I did, can you point that out to me? I still own a Kuro, use it in my bedroom and still enjoy it immensely. The Elite won't change that even though I think it's a better display.
I agree that each display has its advantages and disadvantages. No display is perfect and no display ever will be perfect. I don't know how many times I need to say that. None of us are in denial that the Elite is not a perfect display. Sometimes I think that unless we say the Elite is utter garbage, some won't be happy (not saying that about you jbrady).
