Your not the only one with a shiny screen TV, and the VT60 has much higher native contrast then your LCD.
A good projector blows any TV into the weeds, its not even close. I actively avoid viewing movies on the TV, save them up for the projector because the experience is so much better.
Having said that, for best performance you do need to control room reflections, which does involve some effort and money. Its not for everyone.
For me its performance first, styling-aesthetics are not even a consideration.
