We don't really know the price of the ZT - but I would be stunned if the price was more than $1000 more than the current price of the VT by July. There are already sites selling with glasses and other stuff for about $1400 more than the VT which doesn't come with glasses (mind you I don't really care about the 3D). Motion is extremely important to me and frankly I notice motion issues even on the current VT compared to my monstrously deep old crt. It doesn't matter if it is playing OTA or from disc, I notice it.
As for not getting a KURO - I was waiting for the next Kuro which never happened. Rumor had it they had made a deal to get 70" glass production so they could offer a bigger KURO. My current screen is a 65" anything smaller would be a downgrade. And as much as newbies might think newer tech is always better, CRTs STILL have advantages over Plasma although they are ridiculously deep compared to plasmas or LCD/LED.
OLED is right around the corner if I want to pay $4000 more for a dinky 55" TV - hardly an upgrade.
In 4 years or so when I can get a 4K, 80" TV with HDMI 2.0 at a reasonable price, I'll move my ZT to the bedroom.Edited by boe - 2/8/13 at 10:47am
