I guess you'll have to wait after the Superbowl before the price come back down to $1599. Use Amazon Visa for 3% CB or buy Amazon GCs at Safeway using 5% CB on certain CCs (6% for Amex Blue Preferred). Too bad tax in CA doesn't make it as slick anymore. Amazon may probably pricematch PaulsTV's free white glove delivery.

I bought the 55GT50 and had the same dilemma. LCD brightness for a Plasma PQ? In short, I havent looked back or regretted my decision one bit. I'm an avid COD player and watch my share of Blu Rays as well. You will not be disappointed. This is promise you.
Ok, any input to my dilemma would be greatly appreciated.
This is a great price for this TV! I was originally looking at the TC-P60GT50 that Amazon has for $1699 with 2% credit to be used towards a future purchase.
The first dilemma is, do I go with the VT or the GT?
The second dilemma is, this will be my first Plasma purchase, and they aren't particularly known for their brightness levels. I am a gamer, and my wife and I like to watch our fair share of movies. The TV is going into a well-lit room. But we can always draw the shades, and the light isn't at our backs. Going from a 65" LCD CCFL backlight to the VT or GT Plasma, will we be disappointed?
The picture looked amazing to me in Best Buy on both units, but naturally a lot dimmer than the other LCD LED backlit TVs they had on display in the Magnolia room. My wife can't stand the soap opera effect that a lot of the new LCD/LED TVs are known to have. That was virtually non-existent on the Panny.
So, to sum up:
1.) Any gamers own Plasmas out there, and how are your experiences vs. LCD/LED sets?
2.) Would you go with the 55VT50 or pay essentially $66 more and get the 60GT50?
I know I could have put this on an AVS forum, but I wanted to ask here first. Besides, finding your specific issue on an AVS forum is like looking for a needle in a haystack. I will try to reward any positive feedback with reps! Thanks!
