I'm sure this question has been asked before in some variation but I was all set to buy the Panasonic Viera GT50 60" from best Buy for 1999 then I noticed I could get the Panasonic Viera ST50 65" for like 2099. So that's 5 extra inches for another hundred bucks.
A little background:
My current TV is an old Toshiba 50" rear projection that only displays video up to 1080i, so I wanted to get a TV for 1080P, cable and blu-rays, then I noticed that Verizon offers 3D programing and a lot of blu-rays and even some video games are being offered in 3D. So my wife & I were in a Sony store and looked at the 3D in their Bravia TV's. While it looks fantastic they cost like 5500 for the new 65" and I think 3500 for last years model (both way out of my price range which is about 2000).
So I went to Best Buy and the guy explained that Plasma is the way to go for 3D and that the Panasonic Plasmas are really good. So I decided to do a little research before buying.
Since the difference in cost is negligible - $100. Is the picture quality of the GT worth losing 5" of screen size of the ST?
Thanks for any help you can offer.
