I purchased the VT50 today from BB for 3299. Cheaper than Amazon at the moment but hard to find in stores so you will have to get it shipped.

I actually got BB to price match the 55vt50 to Abe's of Maine. Got it for $1895 down from $2499. Still breaking it in, but DAMN that picture is nice. Couldn't be happier.

Xmas is over and getting ready to pull the trigger on a VT50.
Was wondering if the VT50 has a setting for overscan?

I have a pc hooked to my present Panasonic plasma and have an issue with overscan. I have to go into the Nvidia control panel and squeeze the sides/top/bottom in a bit so the desktop isn't cut off. This TV has no setting to turn overscan on or off. I actually can't run the tiles on Windows 8 because of it. 8 doesn't like the resolution and won't open the apps. I run start8 so it isn't an issue but I want to run the new TV in full HD.

For clarification I am passing the signal from pc to tv via a dvi to hdmi cable over an 8800GTS card.
I am building a new pc that will have a GTX 660Ti with hdmi to hdmi.

You most likely have an older 720p which had an issue with that. You should be good with the new VT50.
