Customer Reviews

The colors are life like, the motion is smooth and the blacks are deep.
Jeremy Weise
Researched a variety of 50" LCD & Plasma TV's through CNET and this Panasonic was rated the best I picture, quality and cost.
Patrick Blandford
The 3D is pretty good and some of the smart TV features like Pandora, YouTube and Netflix are really useful.

I will keep this as brief as I can and will not get too technical. I have done a lot of the research and visited the HDTV enthusiast forums and looked high and low for the right TV in my price range. The TV I was told to buy from several sources was the Panasonic ST50. That TV was discontinued to make way for it's replacement (2013) model the ST60, so I got it. I have been nothing but pleased with this TV and it's features.

If you want a superior quality pictures with all the right blacks and vivid colors, look no further. If you just want a great TV for the money, look no further. How this TV gets this quality at this price range is a mystery to me. It is a plasma TV, and there are some advantages and dis-advantages to that. Mostly advantages, but not for everyone. Disadvantages that might disqualify this TV to someone could be the weight, since plasma TVs are a bit heavier... so if you plan on hanging this somewhere that the weight might be an issue, get an LCD. Also if you view TV in the daytime in a room with a ton of windows for some reason (your likely watching soaps), you might want an LCD that handles highly lit rooms a little better. It is also a bit more fragile than an LCD and the glass is more likely to break if something hits it (kids toy, wii remote etc), you can buy a screen protector to solve that issue, but you will spend an extra $140 or so.

Anyhow, I have compared this TV to the ST50 and the quality of the image is the same. They use identical boards and screen tech. The only noticeable changes has been updates to the Smart TV interface and options and the slight difference in appearance (ST50 had transparent plastic rim along the frame of the TV, the ST60 has a small silver rim.

I am definitely not a videophile but am a techie. So when searching for a TV to replace our twenty year old Sony tube (which is still great) I was able to catch on pretty quickly to new features. Our list was fairly simple: light TV viewing, medium movie viewing, light video game usage, light web and apps usage, $1500 or less and 50+ inches.

As my daughter and I drove to Costco she poured over the March 2013 Consumer Reports and had concluded that we should get a Panasonic plasma. I like Panasonic but has reservations about plasma based on vague anecdotes about short life spans and energy use. We arrived at Costco and were lucky enough to quickly find their electronics guru. I described our criteria and he firmly recommended the Panasonic ST and VT plasma's but said Costco did not carry them.

We looked around Costco's impressive selection and asked for guidance. Features aside, our eyes easily picked out the sharpest pictures and they were the Samsung Smart TVs in the $1550 - $2800 range (we didn't bother to look at the more expensive sets). The $1550 Samsung did not have 3D, had a plain plastic bezel and was at the high end of our price range so we were at an impasse. The friendly guru reminded us that in his estimation, the Panasonic ST50 (exactly the one Consumer Reports raved about) or the 2013 version, ST60, was his first choice by far in our price range. We left empty-handed.

That evening we researched the Panasonic and found that it really was in a class by itself for the price, underscored by CNET's 5-star rave review. So we headed to a local video store the next night and checked out their selection and came to the same conclusion: Samsung Smart TVs and a couple others had outstanding pictures.

Size Name: 65-Inch Verified Purchase
This was my second Panasonic Viera TC-P65Sst series TV. The first is a 50" and I love the TV, the picture quality is just amazing. I have had no issues with that TV.

That lead me to purchase this larger TC-P65ST60-65" TV, I knew I already liked the picture quality and knew it was a great TV. Unfortunately about 3 weeks after I plugged the TV in a line developed across the middle of the screen. This horizontal line was there whenever the TV was on. The TV obviously is still under warranty so we called Panasonic. There response was it is your cable box. After testing various cable boxes and other devices it was clear the problem was the TV and not the cable box. Panasonic asked that we send a picture we did and asked that they send a technician out to fix our brand new TV or replace it.

Unbeknownst to me when I purchased this TV Panasonic's idea of customer service is blame others (Cable companies) and offer no real remedy. A week after the problem presented itself Panasonic still hadn't even acknowledged that the problem was something to do with the television.

Luckily we purchased the TV through Amazon and the customer service folks at Amazon stepped up to the plate and went above and beyond what I believe a retailer should have to do. They offered to exchange the TV and have shipped us a new TV. I haven't had a chance to set that one up yet, but I hope it works well because I know how Panasonic will offer to help. Panasonic still never accepted there was a problem. I still have the one TV that looks good and works well (50") and have friends that have Panasonic TV's they haven't had trouble with so if you like playing the lottery the TV's look great. But if the TV stops working expect headaches from Panasonic.
