P50ST50 vs P50GT50 vs P50VT30

Hello all,

I'm stuck trying to decide which Panasonic Plasma to get! I found reviews for all 3 on here, but I still can't decide - I'd appreciate some guidance.

Here are the options:

TX-P50ST50B - £1189
TX-P50GT50B - £1270
TX-P50VT30B - £999


After reading the AVF reviews, there doesn't seem to be much difference between the ST & GT models, although the Panasonic site lists much better specs for the GT. I came across the older VT model at the bargain price of £999 at Hughes Direct, and wondered if it might stack up well against the newer models?

I'm not interested in 3D performance at all. I'd say my usage will be 50% DVD and other SD viewing - 30% HDTV (mostly sports) - 20% XBOX 360 and perhaps a Blu-Ray player in the near future. :)

Thanks for any advice!

Plenty of problems with 2011 models including the VT. Best go to a good Panasonic retailer and look at the other two and compare for yourself. I'd be seeking a 5 year warranty myself on whichever model
