Panasonic VT50 55" vs. Panasonic GT50 60"

by Slyder333 / January 15, 2013 3:39 AM PST

I'm looking to purchase a new TV and have pretty much narrowed it down to two. Either a Panasonic VT50 55" for $1600 or a Panasonic GT50 60" for $1850. My room size is 10'6" wide by 13'6" long. Primary viewing seat is about 12' from TV, secondary seat about 10' from TV. I can't decide if I should go with the VT50 55" for better picture quality, or go with the GT50 60" for a bigger screen size. The money is not a big issue because I wait a long time to buy, so want to make sure I get what I really want. What would you recomend?

I currently own the 55gte50 and love it but after a week I'm trading it in for the 55v50. I would definitely sacrifice th size for the v50. Single pain of glass strait across. A little better dark level and bright level. I'm 10' away and it's perfect. Maybe a tad too big but keeping. For you 55 should be perfect. Also if you're more for size then pic quality then you mind as well just get the st series. If you want pic quality get the VT. I work home theater/Mongolia for best buy.

Just make sure you keep the room as dark as possible to really get the most of this beast Wink
