Panasonic as far as I am concerned is the best producer of television sets in the world right now. Nothing compares to the picture clarity and quality of a Panasonic Plasma TV and this model is no different. I replaced a 42" Plasma from 5 or 6 years ago with this model and a week later I'm not even slightly regretting the choice.

Update: Recently found out Panasonic has discontinued their Plasma models. If you're on the fence, make sure you decide before they are completely gone (I would NEVER recommend buying used Plasmas). Here is a great article from CNET with a summary of some very well spoken words regarding Panasonic and their Plasma line of TVs.


Presuming you do buy a Plasma this year from Panasonic, it should last you until the next generation of OLED TVs become reasonably cost affordable.

Plasma technology has come a long way, you'll find that not only do you get the high refresh rate, deep blacks and crisp picture but you also get a longer lifetime now (~30 years of 8 hours a day viewing before the TV will begin to fade), much lower power consumption (CNET rates this model around $44 a year, Panasonic states $28, so figure it somewhere between $35-40 without using Eco-mode settings) and better picture control than in the past (multiple ratios, you can choose to cool/warm the picture in minute quantities and set different profiles for each input).

Still, if you're sitting here trying to decide between a Plasma and an LED, you need to really only consider a few scenarios.

Size Name: 65-inch Verified Purchase
After exhaustive research and subsequent comparison shopping, I decided on this TV in its 65" form factor. I am extremely pleased with the purchase (and subsequent Amazon delivery), and can recommend it heartily, especially considering its price point.

Another reviewer echoed an important sentiment in these reviews to note if you're upgrading from an older TV: the performance of this set will almost undoubtedly trounce your older TV for a fraction of its original cost. In my case, a 2006 Panasonic 42" plasma that cost about $2,300 at the time; its picture quality and black levels don't hold a candle to this one.

Also, going from 42" to 65" is like having a hallelujah chorus sing every time you turn it on. It's pretty glorious.

Since picture quality is highly subjective, I will leave you to the professionals for their specific opinions and testing results (CNet has an informative review up). As for my personal opinion, the picture is stunning with Blu-ray and HD streaming content (Netflix, Amazon, and Vudu via the PS3). Gaming, specifically related to input lag and fluid motion, is an absolute joy to behold. The ST60 series was on my short list, but after the definitive input lag tests on those sets, I passed them up in favor of what I found to be a better deal in the S60 series.

In terms of the visual aesthetic, this TV looks like a much more expensive model, with a particularly slim black bezel (it's about an inch) and understated stand. To quote one of my more eloquent friends, her first reaction to seeing the set when turned off was, "Whoa...fancy.

Size Name: 65-inch Verified Purchase
After remodeling our basement and media room , we needed to find a nice TV. We found that most of the LED offerings on the market were unacceptable. Horrible clouding and flashlighting, very poor black levels, etc... Plus, to get an LED TV that can compare to the picture quality of this S60, we would have needed to spend $3000+. At first we were hesitant to go plasma because of "burn-in", thickness, and some other issues on older models. I can assure you those issues no longer exist on modern plasmas.

I was originally drawn to the ST60 instead of the "base model" that is the S60. However, the input lag is bad on the ST60. It is very annoying for any sort of video gaming. I found that with the S60, the difference in picture quality is negligible and the lack of input lag is a HUGE advantage. I realized that I will never use 3D and that my Mac mini and Xbox have all the apps I could ever want/need- so I picked up the S60.

The picture quality is fantastic. Turn off Eco-mode and you're set. There are some great settings on AVSForum if you want to dial it in and make it even better. But even the stock settings will look fantastic to 95% of people. Blacks are extremely deep and colors are vibrant. After watching the S60, it is amazing how washed out picture looks on our other LED TVs. It's almost unbearable to watch after getting used to the S60. Not sure what else to say regarding PQ- you won't be disappointed.

Design- I think it looks nice on the wall. Not the most beautiful TV ever made, but still very nice and the frame is very small. It has a nice profile.

Glare- I was originally going to get the 65S64, which is the S60 with the anti-glare filter from the ST60, but they sold out everywhere.
