I have both the 65" ST50 and the 65" VT50. The reflectivity in the VT is still pretty high. It is not great in bright rooms. If you have a significantly bright room, I think you should seriously consider getting a top of the line LED TV with a matte screen.
Here's the VT50 in the living room of my old house:
I have my 65" ST50 in this room, and I wish I would've bought an LED with a matte screen. I don't yet have blinds or anything on those top windows:
