Raia, I have no regrets getting the VT30. It has over 200 hours and the PQ is on par in terms of color and sharpness after I used DNice's settings. I chose not to use the slides to break it in. I had to be patient the first 150 hours or so and used very low contrast and brightness settings while it was breaking in, so it was a nice reward to use the settings that brought out the TV's capability.
But the biggest improvement is you are going from 720 to 1080. So watching blu-rays, especially well mastered ones, look fantastic. I was very impressed with Aliens. There are close-ups of Sigourney Weaver's face that reveals lines and skin detail. The smoke from her cigarette really struck me as looking so film like. I saw this on the 1130 before and it certainly looked good there, but there is an improvement. It may be a small improvement, but i noticed there are blotches on the 1130 now that isn't there on the VT30 because of the increase in resolution.
The size change also contributes a lot. Because of the increase in resolution, going to 65 inches adds to the impressive image quality.
Watching the original Star Trek TV series on blu ray also is impressive. Again, skin detail, fabrics in the costumes, and the materials reveal themselves more on the sets. I watched Ghost Protocol this past weekend and I never saw that theatrically. To me, it looked great and the scenes where Tom Cruise is hanging off the side of the building was impressive because the added size of the screen adds to the immersive experience.
I don't have a 3D capable player yet, so I can't comment on that.
I watch broadcast material over the air and I only watch network TV and local TV. No cable. So high definition is limited to 720 and 1080 as per the station's output. As others have noted, sometimes skin tones tend to look a little orange. But I don't stress over that because I know it's not the TV's fault, it's the stuff it's being fed. I put a more critical eye to how a high def source like a blu ray will be look.
No doubt the next iteration, the VT50, if I have the number right should be as good, if not better. If you need a TV now, the VT30 will certainly satisfy!
