This is all more the case now, with the ST30 being trumped entirely by the ST50.
I wouldn't recommend buying this at all.

Agreed this was the only reason I grabbed the 42ST30 my room wall doesn't allow for more than 51 inches. I didn't want to grab the 50 and have to get a new wall mount as well. If they did make the ST50 in 42 I'd grab that saw both the ST50 and UT50 at frys earlier that day and the ST50 DEFINITELY impressed while the UT50 still impressed but next to the ST30 you could see the diff with the filter.

I had no clue, just walked in expecting to see it for 699 but they just had it priced at 626. The guy told me it was the last NIB he knew around this area.
