Just wanted to check in with the pros, the ST50 series is a much better TV that this one right?
Yes. The "U" series is the entry-level set. The "ST" series is the entry of their higher-end sets with the better panels. For 2012, the series go VT>GT>ST>UT>XT>U.
You'll note that this set is a "U54", which is all but identical to the more common "U50"... both "U" series, but the 50 and 54 are only there for purposes of the resellers wanting different model numbers to prevent price-matching.
Now whether it is "much" better is a matter of debate. It may be noticeably better, but is it $1000 better? That's a different question entirely.

The ST has quite a number of features over the "U". I was just making a generalization about it having a higher-end panel, one feature of which is, yes, the anti-glare screen. Another very obvious difference is that the "U" is not a 3D set, unlike the whole rest of the lineup.
Plasma TVs suck twice the juice of a LCD or LED....just sayin ! ! !
If you run up the brightness on a large plasma set and have it on over 5 hours per day, every day, then it could cost you as much as $4 per month over an equivalently-sized LED/LCD set (as per CNET's numbers). The question you then should ask yourself is if the better picture is worth skipping a latte every month.
