Wow: that is a remarkable price for 60" Plasma!
If you sit far enough way - say 10ft or more - the S30 should work well.
Even from slightly closer in, it will look fine with good quality blu-ray material.
Alas, the processing & overall PQ on the S30 are not up to the same level as the ST30: at 50" and below, you can largely ignore these issues, but with a 60" panel, and a Less-Than-10-Foot Viewing Distance, even my wife as able to spot the flaws in the S30's display, given less than Ideal program material - including so-called "HiDef TV" programs.
(To be fair, we had a 60" S30 set up next to a 60" ST30, which made the differences easy to spot.)
