Here's the problem.
I view my VT50 in daylight conditions all the time. Unless the sun is directly incident
on the screen, it presents no problem. And specifically, you have to be at the angle of incidence
for it to matter. If the sun comes in at 45 degrees from the left and you are directly perpendicular to the screen, the filter makes the sun a non factor. If you are 45 degrees off the other way, however, you see the "sun spots".
But I watch the VT50 for football, the occasional golf, baseball, etc. And it's plenty bright
for daytime viewing.
And this nonsense about the temperature? Just stop.
The thing barely runs warm. I can hold my hand on the back after my TV has been on several hours. Every time I read one of your absurd posts, I actually do this (assuming the TV has been on). And just now, after 3 hours on, I could have held my hand their indefinitely.I wish the plasma could warm my room even a little, but it just doesn't do a darned thing.

I'll never understand why people can't accept that each tech has its strength and weaknesses and its the value you put in those strengths as well as the weight you give to the weaknesses that determine what YOU think is the best.
Hey, I bet a number of people prefer the Elite to the VT50. That's pretty reasonable (although others will prefer the VT50 to the Elite). What's not reasonable is to have an entirely bogus preference based on entire bogus non-facts about the VT50. That's all.
