The VT50 actually has the same Anti-Reflective Louver Filter as the ST50 and GT50, but the VT50 has a slightly darker Black Filter on the panel that might make it a teensy bit less reflective, but they're all virtually the same.
The Samsung PNE6500/PNE7000/PNE8000 also have a pretty good AR Filter, but they aren't as bright as the Pannys and won't punch through the ambient light as well as the Pannys do.
Go to some stores and compare the reflectivity among all these models - it's easy to compare their reflectivity there what with all the overhead lights and other stuff reflecting in their screens. If you're near El Segundo, i was just at the Best Buy last night to buy a printer and of course had to duck into their Magnolia section and they currently have a GT50, VT50, and PNE8000 on display in their semi-darkened showroom area and and i was comparing them all (for the millionth time LOL). Actual reflectivity was pretty much the same among them.
The upcoming 2013 ST60 and VT60 will have a slightly improved filter according to AVJ on HDJ. The new S60 will not have a filter.
