So if you want a 60", this is easy to me.
First of all, regular humans are unlikely to perceive the GT as having a better picture. In this case, I count myself as a regular human.
Second of all, the ST design is simple and neutral. While some people like the GT design, I find it hideous. YMMV of course.
Third of all, since you are after a 60", there is no reason to wait for the VT, which is coming in 55" and 65".
