after hearing family complain about not having a blueray or 1080p in our livingroom i went to a local store yesterday and compared the 65vt30 against the samsung 64 inch 8000 series. my wife and i didnt like the red/pink tint to whites we saw on the samsung, we also noticed that moving objects on the samsung had a jitter effect that we dont have on our old 55 inch hitachi 55hdt79 and wasnt on the pannys


on the other side of the samsung was a 65st30... im telling you we are having a hard time deciding between these 2 sets. the internet widget stuff isnt that important for us , we will be connecting to an xbox and ps3 and a marantz ud7006. the vt is $800 more {including blue ray player and a pair of 3d glasses} than the ST. we have a bright room with large patio doors and windows on 2 sides.


is it worth 800 more to get the vt? im still ok watching dtv and playing xbox games on my 720p hitachi... but i do have to say these are both amazing looking tv's... for the price difference i could pick up a 50 inch st for my bedroom to replace a older 42inch 720p hitachi but was going to replace that with the 55 from the livingroom

Based on reports of the AR filter, the VT30 should be better for a bright room. That would be important to me if it was my decision.

thanks for the reply, going to purchase the VT tomorrow.....

My guess is that you will be using this TV for many years to come. As such, I wouldn't hesitate at a $800 difference. The VT is a terrific TV and I prefer its styling over the ST. I plan to purchase one in the fall...

I would hesitate to spend another $800...that $800 will cover a new TV or almost 50% of a new 65"+ screen in the future. But I've never been a top of the line person, which explains why I own the 65ST30. So I am definitely biased.
