Nah, not contradicting myself - the primary reason why i wouldn't buy a 55VT50 is simply because it's too big, and the extra features and design aren't enough to sway me to get a TV that's over two inches taller that would block even more of my great view then my 46G10 is now. And it would be so much wider that it will stick out past the sides of my 47" wide credenza which looks awkward.
A 50" VT50 however would be not quite as tall as my 46G10 is, so if it did come in a 50 incher i would consider it since i like the all-glass design a little more than the GT50's bezel design. I don't care for the ST50's crystal fencing. And the VT50's better black filter would be the icing on the cake, even though i don't need it
If i could rotate my 12' x 16' man room's layout 90 degrees to the right (the long way), i'd probably get a 65" TV since i have a 12 wide solid wall that keeps begging for a big screen. But that layout won't work for me for various reasons.
