ST50 vs GT50 / Which is best for bright room viewing

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Title pretty much states my question, but since both televisions are released what are thoughts on which is the better set overall and for a bright room?

I appreciate the help greatly.

Imo it is pretty much a wash, same AR filter. Read CNET's GT50 review and I think you will have your answer smile.gif

The VT50 has a better filter (but also costs more).

IIRC, the GT has an extra setting that can be used for bright room vs the ST.

Both will perform the same in a bright room. Same filter, same brightness capability. The GT50 has the benefit of having more modes which will give you better options for having separate settings for day/night viewing. You'll have to use Cinema and Custom on the ST50 where Cinema mode has a slightly lower gamma.

It's the reason I got the VT50. It's actually pretty amazing compared to other TVs. I have a wall of floor to ceiling windows behind me & a sun room next to that. TV does great. I do shut the blinds if I really want to enjoy my viewing (geek out). However you can easily see the image during the day. The TVs ability during the day to keep the black areas look dark is amazing. You can still see good amount of depth even during the day.

I'm sure the GT50 which you ordered will be excellent as well. If it's not enough give the VT50 a try smile.gif

The VT50 would be amazing but the price jump is pretty substantial. I guess we will wait and see.

I'm pretty pumped should have it on Friday or Monday.

The VT50 is only slightly better at handling reflections and darker blacks in a bright room. However, the over all image appears slightly dimmer in all modes. I have owned both and returned the VT50 to return to the GT50.
