I'm looking for a new TV and already tried a Samsung LED/LCD which I do not like. Plasma is for sure the way to go for me and The ST30 looks like an awesome set for the price *but* I found out today I get 40% off direct from Panasonic at work and can get the VT model for only a few hundred more than Amazon has the ST30 for. I have an HTPC setup and basically only use the TV as a monitor. Would I get 96Hz refresh rates all the time with the VT30 or does it quadruple the frames of a 24Hz signal internally? Just trying to decide if it's even worth it since I do all processing on the HTPC anyway. Ideally I would like a stripped down version that has no speakers and only 1 HDMI input for a cheaper price but I can't seem to find anything like that.
