Panasonic TC-P58S2 58" 1080p Plasma TV TCP58S2

Amazon.com

Building on its award-winning 2009 Plasma line, Panasonic's 58-inch VIERA TC-P58S2 Plasma HDTV features a new panel with NeoPDP technologies that provide the best balance of black and white under brighter environments while also offering higher energy efficiency. The new NeoPDP Plasma panel also further reduces reflections and creates sharper pictures with higher contrast in brighter environments. This S2 series model provides 1080p resolution, full-time 1080 TV lines of moving picture resolution, and 600Hz Sub-field Drive for superb motion clarity.

This and other models in the S2 line offer Panasonic's VIERA Image Viewer feature, which enables you to play slideshows of JPEG images stored on SD memory cards, as well as the VIERA Link feature for controlling a variety of compatible components--from Blu-ray Disc players to digital cameras--through a single remote.

Adhering to Panasonic's commitment to the environment, this VIERA model--as well as all 2010 models--features improved power consumption and meets the new, more stringent Energy Star 4.0 requirements. And you'll get a long Plasma panel life of up to 100,000 hours--more than 30 years of viewing when watched 8 hours a day--before the brightness of the panel decreases to half.



Panasonic's VIERA S2 series Plasma HDTV.

Key Features

NeoPDP: By redesigning the Plasma panel's cell structure and developing an innovative new filter, Panasonic has tripled the luminous efficiency (compared to 2007 models) of its VIERA Plasma HDTVS--resulting in stunningly beautiful images while also reducing power consumption.

 

1080 Moving Picture Resolution: With 1080 lines of moving picture resolution and integrated NeoPDP technology's high-speed drive performance, the display time for each image frame is shortened to minimize afterimages, making decisive calls in football matches and delicate motions in figure skating performances appear crystal clear.

 

600Hz Sub-field Drive: 600Hz technology lets you view superb full-HD motion and still images with 1080 lines of resolution. For even greater clarity with motion images, Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology, which converts the motion in each scene into data. And each frame is practically displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous systems, to reduce aftereffects (see an illustration of 600Hz technology).

 

VIERA Image Viewer: View full-HD images with the integrated SD card slot, enabling you to view JPEG photos captured from your digital camera or camcorder on the big screen. Navigate your images via an easy-to-use thumbnail display.

 

VIERA Link: Allows the interlinked operation of various AV devices--from DVD and Blu-ray Disc players to home theater sound systems to digital cameras and camcorders--using only the VIERA remote control by simply connecting the devices to each other by an HDMI cable (see pop-up illustration).

 

Game Mode: With Game Mode, quicker image response increases the enjoyment of video games when a game console is connected to the TV. What's more, VIERA produces the dark images in video games more clearly. This mode works with the anti-image retention (wobbling) function, too.

Which Size HDTV is Right for My Room?

HDTV Size chart
With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience.

If you know the size of the room you have already, where you want to sit, and where your new HDTV should go once you get it, you can figure out the size HDTV you should get.

  • Minimum size = Viewing distance/3
  • Maximum size=Viewing distance/1.5

I've had this TV for a little over a week and am proud to say that I have no buyer remorse at all. I've calibrated this TV to the best of my ability and the picture is stunning compared to the 50" Samsung it replaced. The Samsung was only a year old, I just wanted a bigger TV and this one fit the bill perfectly.

The blacks are better and colors more accurate to me. I have the ability to watch the same source on two different displays at once thanks to my Onkyo 1007 having dual outs. The Panasonic just flat out beat the Samsung.

This is the best bang for buck for this size.

Nice, crisp 1080 picture, plenty of image adjustment settings for the everyday consumer, and what a price for a 58" plasma from a brand that does it best. I also had a great experience with the the delivery company that was setup to deliver this set considering I paid nothing for shipping. They setup a 4 hr window with me a few days in advance and arrived on time. The two people also assisted me in getting this beast into my garage :) I love Amazon's ability to come through with these large dollar purchases. Don't waste your time (or the risk associated with) shopping any other online etailer - they can't beat the price or piece of mind Amazon provides.

I bought this TV for my Husband 3 weeks ago and it has an absolutely beautiful picture. The colors are amazing and it looks good in game mode while playing the PS3, a regular DVD and exceptional with a Blue Ray.

It was easy to set up and the size 58" is perfect for our bonus room. Panasonic has done it again.....

Highly recommend it.

I have had three panasonic plasmas in my life. Two 50's and now this 58. I had been so happy with the 50" panasonics. Great color, smooth motion, and excellent clarity. I then wanted to move up to a 58". I should have listened to my instincts and stick with panasonic, but instead I bought a Samsung 58" on a killer sale thinking I would be happy with it. WRONG! It emitted the most annoying buzzing noise ever and the color (even after calibration) was just average. After going through the return process and getting rid of the dreaded Samsung, I resorted back to the old favorite....Panasonic. I bought this Plasma and have not regretted it. The color is wonderful (after calibration and break in) and I have enjoyed movies and tv so much more with the bigger screen. Truly a great tv and a steal at the price Amazon offers it for. Shipping is free too!!!! If you are in the market for a 58" plasma, this is it!

This is a great TV! the pic is beautiful and the speakers aren't to bad if your just watching regular TV. The low res watching kind of sucks because the screen is so big, I dont think that's the TV's fault though, I think it's the size? I've had this since sep 23 and I honestly think the colors have gotten better, is that possible????? one thing to consider though is this baby does put out the heat! It doesn't get hot, it just heats up my apartment pretty fast. There again what do you expect from such a big screen? Really great buy,,,,just consider the heat factor and if your going to be watching a lot of basic cable, I would definitely get a smaller screen. (Panasonic of course) This one replaced a six month old 32" LCD that made my eyes sore! I dont like LCD TV's at all,,,,, plasma baby only way to go!

I originally intended to buy the 50 inch G25. The G25 had a better picture. I then saw the 58S2 for about the same price. I figured i could sacrifice a little picture quality for a bigger screen. The S2 would look better i thought once i got it home and it wasn't being compared. I'm glad I changed my mind. This TV is excellent. The blacks are great and it makes the other colors stand out. The standard settings are poor. I have a calibration DVD from Monster I bought 4 years ago that calibrates great. This is my first plasma and I'm used to a bright picture from my LCD sets. This set is nearly as bright. The best mode for movies and dvd's is cinema. Cable looks good on HD channels and better than average on regular. Sound is very good on the set. Keep in mind this set will look much bigger once you get it home. I recommended a distance of at least 15 ft.

First off, like many of you I have scoured the internet to find reviews, pricing and real-world performance of this panel. From AV Science Forum to Amazon and Google.

Ultimately Price won, and I bought this Set on Sears' BF sale, for a little under $1,100.00. All I can tell you is, if you're in the $1k+ change, price range, you CANNOT go wrong with this Set.

-PRO-
Remarkable Image Quality
Noise Free HD display
Several tweakable picture presets
Viera-Tools image Slide-Show
"Game" mode. (excellent with X360 and PS3)
Flicker-free 1080p, period

-CON-
none at this point, for the price, there is ZERO flaw with this set.

The set is easily 75lbs without the stand, so if you are going to wall hang it, get a friend to help. However, I was able to lift it onto the wall mount, by myself. (5-10, 180lbs.)

I run only HDMI input, out to my receiver. My receiver and DTV box detected the set over HDMI, and set resolution to 1080p. (note: some SD and other low-res HD sources can be displayed natively, and then stretched, squashed, or letterboxed to your liking with one of several display settings on the set.)
For instance,
Full
Justified
Zoom
Horizontal-Fill (H-stretch)

That way, you don't have to deal with the annoying bars on the side for 4:3 content. It may appear grainier the closer you sit, because it's an SD image "stretched" to fill. But from 10' away, it looks good to me for SD.

That's my last point, I have a small living room, and previously had a 42" Plasma Toshiba in my room. Now that I have the 58" I realize how undersized a 42" is for a 10' - 12' viewing distance.
