Thanks, you are right. I don't generally rely on specs as a form of how good anything is. I guess what i am looking for is confirmation of GT50 Specs in the ST60. while it's no guarantee that the picture quality will be as good, (or better or worse) but if the GT line has been removed, and if the VT is not Downgraded, it leads me to believe the ST60 should be big step up from the ST50, and possible as good as the GT50 with regard to picture quality.

The real extra credit is for having multiple outputs, so you can switch your AVR from day-TV to night-TV and have the HDMI inputs on your GT50 setup accordingly.
I'll have to check out Pricing again on the GT50, seeing as the ST60 may—or may not—be replacing it, i presume the price will be dropping. that said. if the picture between the two is similar. I'll need to look in to a couple things.
The GT50 has extra ports which is nice. but the ST60 has updated software. (possibly read more formates?) if the GT50 can be upgraded with the software benefits, then i might as well get the GT50... no?
