Sorry. Premature key punch event. Anyway, the 50G25 is a STEAL @ $1050, but $500 more for the "3D experience" might be too much. Besides, only the "GT" is 3D ( the "T" denoting 3D ). I have a VT20 and absolutely LOVE the picture quality. The G and GT 25 are not quite as good, but certainly better than many others out there. As for the 3D, well maybe someday, but for now, just a gimmick to me ( IMO ). I bought my 89yo mother-in-law a 50GT25 to replace a 32". She was about 12' away from the screen and had to squint to see the postage stamp-sized screen. SHE LOVES IT!!! Especially now with the basketball tournaments on. She has only cable....no Blu-ray, or any other accesories besides a soundbar to help her hear what is being said. She LOVES it!!! In short, the 50G25 is a very good set, but not a VT20, or VT25. But then it doesn't cost $1800 either. For $1000 you just can't go wrong, but I wouldn't stretch for the 3D at this point. Also, with the Panasonic DMP-BDT100, you will need a "pass-thru" receiver to make it all work right. Newer receivers will do that, but I had to replace my Onkyo TX-SR605, with a 608 to get it right. Hope this helps...
