It is thinner but broader around the screen, with nice and stable stand that will be easy to fit into an existing setup.

Panasonic TC-P65ZT60 Plasma HDTV
The TC-P65ZT60 represents plasma technology at its best, which HD Guru gave five out of five hearts in its review from 2013. The ZT60's 3000 sub-field drive does an even better job of keeping fast-motion sports looking solid than Panasonic's stunning ST60, and its anti-glare filter is an upgraded version of the one found on that model. Brightness is about the same as the ST60, however.
Without going overboard with the very highest end features you get the ones you will appreciate most. These include UHD Picture Dimming, a 120Hz panel and 240 Motion Rate to help with fast motion sports, a quad core processor, contrast enhancer technology, precision black and peak illuminator picture quality adjustments – all for a great price. Although you get a great viewing angle and low motion blur, it has a fair uniformity. Great color accuracy at an angle, Low input lag and motion blur, Wider color gamut.
