Actually, you have virtually no experience with them, because none of them were calibrated.
They may not say exactly 97%, but I bet they'll agree for the most part.
When calibrating TVs you aim to get DeltaE uv (grayscale) and DeltaE 94 (Color) under 3, which is the error % where they say it's no longer perceivable to the human eye. All 3 TVs achieve this for the most part, but the VT50 with the Color Management System (which is partly broken) and the 10pt white balance vs the 2pt on the ST/GT allows the VT50 to get nearly perfect. However, because the ST/GT are already so good, the VT50 is only a little better and not even noticeable to most people. Just look at the calibration reports of all 3 sets, which can be found at High Def Junkies dot com in Chad B's review section or D-Nice's settings thread / Value Electronics website and look at the DeltaE uv charts as well as the Color charts.
I'm not saying you made the wrong decision, I'm just disagreeing with your 75% claim.Edited by rahzel - 7/15/12 at 7:46pm
