I am going to bring this thread back to life.
I currently own a 60" LG 3D plasma display. It was their top-of-the-line
model 3 years ago. At the time, I wanted a Panasonic, but I just happened
to have won the LG display in a raffle.
I want a Panasonic plasma before they are completely gone...forever.
Do I need to upgrade now? No. But, I want that famous near-kuro blacks
that the new Panny plasmas (VT60 and ZT60 offer).
I also feel that we are still years away from OLED being affordable, so if
I can get 3 years of pleasure from this Panny purchase before I feel the need
to upgrade again -- then all the better.
I have the chance to get a really good deal on either of these two models,
but there is at least a $500 difference in price between the 65" VT60 and ZT60.
I know that the ZT60 performs better in brighter rooms as far as black levels
are concerned -- but my home theater is always completely dark. So, most likely,
I am going to opt for the VT60.
