An Outstanding TV
Pros: Extremely deep blacks, near perfect color accuracy, very thin design, no image retention or burn-in issues
Cons: Typical flat panel TV speakers; adequate output but not much low end extension, You will have to endure the envy of friends and family
Other Thoughts: So far so good. I've used the TV heavily for the past several days and it has been amazing. Unlike the previous reviewer, I have had zero issues with image retention. After dialing in the picture settings from cnet and calibrating with a Disney WOW disc, it produces a great, cinematic picture with very inky black levels. After seeing this thing in action, I have a lot of difficulty believing the VT50 is worth the extra $1000. If you're looking for a new plasma, you can't go wrong with the GT50.

Stunning picture, with a large caveat
Pros: Wonderful picture, plenty of options
Cons: Image retention
Other Thoughts: Last month my wife finally agreed to let me purchase a new HDTV. After doing an obsessive amount of research I settled on this model. Being that this is a plasma TV, and knowing of the "burn-in" issues in the past, I made sure to read quite a bit about how to avoid it. Most of what I came across simply stated that it isn't really a problem these days as long as you have a "break-in" period of about 100 hours.
