A lot depends on how dark your room is. If you room doesn't get that dark then you would want LED, if you can make your room darker, Plasma will give you the best and truest picture.

I bought this bad boy about 3 months ago and it is simply amazing. Great picture.
In the AV forums I go to that set is getting rav reviews so congratulations and Sony's new CEO said they were getting back to their roots and this is proof.

I know the crowd at AVS likes it as well as HiDef Forum
and the AVS crowd are Plasma fans so that says a lot .
I am a plasma fan having said that I do have a 55ST50 from Panasonic wish I had the funds for the ZT but I would take the XBR Sony one of the best pictures I have seen does the job of the Elite with more accurate color that speaks loads.

I agree I have both Plasma main set and LCD b/room both are good sets the . Plasma was the one to beat in the 50+" price bracket I was in and it won out .
That being said The Sony XBR is in a different catagory than most sets and something I woulden't mind either
I saw one and the picture was very good.

Well, Tony. Our Sony 55" SXRD is 6 1/2 yrs. old now and still delivers a beautiful, sharp picture with good, natural color reproduction and excellent gray scale. But I admit we have also been looking around. It'll be a while because of our having to purchase a new furnace, heat pump/AC. Our youngest son just purchased a 60" Samsung plasma. We were over at his home watching NCAA tournament play. It is BIG. Good color....he has it set too contrasty for my taste....and...most importantly.....I was disappointed with what I consider to be a soft picture. Not very sharp at all. Frankly, after all the raves I've read in this forum, reference to Plasma sets I expected much better. We're not ready to buy yet so I'll keep doing my research before we do. For now....the picture on our older Sony is better....or let's say more to my taste....than his plasma.

I agree with Oz, I bought a Panasonic VT50 and am very happy with it. They came out with the ZT 60 because of software and hardware upgrades. But if you can find a DT50 or 55 you will be very pleased with it.
