Just found some more bits on the ZT60
Main AV Setup: Panasonic 50VT65 TV, Pioneer Bdp-lx71, Pioneer Vsx-lx70, B&W FPM Series, B&W PV1, Optimum AV300 AV Stand, QED Silver Anniversary XT Speaker Cable & Chord Silver Plus HDMI Cables. Gadgets: iPad Air & iPhone 4S.
Here is the other one
This one is quite good too
Are you trying to talk yourself into buying one?
I'd be tempted at three grand, if the ZT60 is clearly a Kuro killer and free from obvious problems.
That means perfect screen uniformity with all content; no 50Hz bug; no obvious dynamic false contouring or other motion issues; no brightness pops or issues with black level over time (how would we know at the point of sale); no IR problems; reference level greyscale tracking and colour accuracy; and an understanding retailer that would look after me throughout the full five year warranty period (I wouldn't want to rely on Panasonic, even after spending that kind of money on a TV).
Hardware: Panasonic TX-P50VT65B (calibrated); Cambridge Audio Azur 651BD; Yamaha RX-A810; Teac PD-H600; PS3; B&W 601 & 600LCR (series 3); Q Acoustics QAV (rear)
Furniture and Accessories: BLOK Classix 3000 Oak AV Cabinet; Atacama Nexus 6 (atabite metal filled); 3D3 A1112
I think gel will be making a purchase sometime soon.
Second hand GT50 anyone?
LOUNGE: Panasonic TX-P50GT50 (is poorly) / Panasonic DMP-BDT120 / Yamaha RX-A2020 / Q Acoustics 2020i (front) / Q Acoustics 2020 (rear) / Q Acoustics 2000Ci / Q Acoustics1000Si / Roksan Radius 5.2 (is poorly, so Pro-ject Debut III) / Sky HD / WD My Book Live / Tacima CS-929

I think if the RRP is £4000, the price will come down to £3000 or thereabouts, although the "limited edition" tag may keep the prices up.

At the moment I am rather proud of my GT50 because when I see the ZT60 to me it does not look much better than the VT50, and that would go along with what me and you read, that this years will not be much better. I was going to go and have a serious demo of the Panasonic 55 vt50 but did not get round to it, probably Monday, that will be interesting for me set up right.
GT50 is staying whatever for sure - I love it! Can't you tell? Might just get moved into another room - will see. Might see if there are any announcements from Panasonic like we are quitting plasmas then I probably will.
I forget where I read this (I'll try to track down the source), but I think the RRP will be £3,750, though prices would still need to come down a fair whack for me to be interested. I'd also need to put the £1,000 spent on the GT50 toward the purchase, which leaves me with a big interim problem (I'd have to get a refund on the GT50 and live with no TV for an indeterminate period). Perhaps a GT60, if free of last year's uniformity problems, would be good enough.
I wouldn't be contemplating any of this if Panasonic had got screen uniformity right on last year's plasmas. I know I keep going on about it, which probably makes tedious reading for other forumites, but it really spoils an otherwise fantastic TV.
If you want to sell me your GT50, subject to suitable audition for screen uniformity problems, and put the money toward a ZT, you'd have my attention!
I was going to suggest that!
You need an avatar, strapped! I've been looking for a suitable picture, befitting your forum name.
How about this?
I think an "anonymous" avatar is more befitting of my sensibilities. I could go with this:
For the record, I've never hacked a website of any description.
I've seen that one somewhere. Some on here? A film? " />
Watching Sky Atlantic HD at the moment, Attenborough. Picture looks amazing.
