I also would be swapping for a GT50 60" not 65". My wife would kill me if I came home with a set that big. So not sure if it's worth swapping for a lesser model that is slightly bigger, I mean, the VT50 is amazing, maybe I should just stick with it. Thebishman, where did you purchase your VT50 and why did you decide to go with the 55"?
I purchased the set from my local AV dealer whom I've bought multiple items from over the years, including the two Kuros. Best price I've seen anywhere and a handshake deal to replace the panel if there were any issues out of the box. As I've mentioned so far the panel seems perfect and I'm glad it has the 10/12 date of manufacture.
I only purchased the 55" since this panel is going over a fireplace in our new house and is an additional tv. Our main tv in the HT room is still my trusty 60" Pioneer Kuro, (first generation), which still blows people away when they come over. The only reason to replace it is when there is a product that looks as good in the 80"-90" range or if it breaks.
