What the press is saying:

ST50 CNET

"The affordable Panasonic TC-PST50 series exhibited outstanding overall picture quality, characterized by exceedingly deep black levels with great shadow detail, accurate colors, and solid bright-room performance.

The styling is attractive and the feature set well-chosen, including excellent onscreen help options"...."The bottom line: With flagship-level picture quality for a midlevel price, the Panasonic ST50 series sets the value standard among videophile-grade TVs." ~CNET.com, (March 28, 2012)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The ST50 series features 1080p Full HD resolution, an Infinite Black Pro Panel, and VIERA Connect with web browser and built-in Wi-Fi. Other unique features include 2D to 3D conversion and 2500 focused field drive.

The Perfect Smart TV Experience: A Suite of Technologies

Fast-Switching Phosphor

3D 24p Cinema Smoother
VIERA gives you naturally flowing 24p images with the look and tonal characteristics of film, and familiar TV-like quality. Panasonic's advanced source analysis and frame generation deliver smooth, natural, and lifelike images.

DLNA/Built-in Wi-Fi

VIERA HDTV's Wi-Fi capability gives you even more layout flexibility. The ST50 series has built-in Wi-Fi so a wireless LAN adaptor is not required.

600 Hz Sub-field Drive and 2500 Focused Field Drive

The ST50 features 600Hz technology which allows for superb full-HD motion and still images. Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology which allows for greater clarity with motion images. Each frame is displayed for a shorter length of time to reduce aftereffects. The ST50 also employs Neo Plasma Black 2500 FDD (Focused Field Drive) to provide a crisp image even when the content shows very fast motion.

Operate Multiple Systems with Just One Remote Control through VIERA Link VIERA Link

The ST50 features VIERA Link, a technology that allows a consumer to operate all VIERA Link compatible AV components using only the TV’S remote control. Just point the VIERA remote at your TV, and the signal will travel over the HDMI wires to the right piece of equipment, whether it be your Panasonic Blu-ray or DVD player or Panasonic Home Cinema Surround System.

Deep, Rich Blacks with the Infinite Black Pro Panel

The ST50 series feature self-illuminating panels with ultimate black levels. Enhancements to the panel and cells help reproduce images with smooth, natural gradation and deep, rich blacks - even when viewed in bright surroundings. In movies, the true, deep blacks faithfully convey the intent of the filmmakers, adding power and realism to the viewing experience.

Environmentally Friendly

Panasonic’s commitment to sustainability and producing products that are ecologically sound is evidenced in the 100,000 hour life span of the Plasma Display panel and the lack of lead or mercury in the panels. Thanks to a newly designed phosphor process and rear panel process, Panasonic's plasma panels last for up to 100,000 hours before the brightness decreases by half. That's more than 30 years of viewing 8 hours a day. Plus with Eco Mode, Panasonic TV's turn off and adjust brightness depending on the VIERA's operating status. Settings can be configured by selecting Eco mode from VIERA Tools. The Power Save setting also adjusts screen brightness to reduce power consumption.

Size Name: 60-Inch
Bottom line: Beautiful picture (black is really black!), nice internet functionality, and little impact from the issues that have been noted here and elsewhere.

Prior to making this purchase I did many hours of online reading that consisted of: CNET, AV/high def message boards and reviews, and Amazon reviews and comments. I asked myself the same questions most TV purchasers ask themselves: plasma vs. LED/LCD, Samsung vs. Panasonic, etc. I purchased the 60ST50 from Amazon and it was delivered in the middle of June 2012. By way of background, I own three other LCD's (one of them an LED/LCD) and this was my first foray into plasma. I felt like plasma was a low risk choice for this TV as it is going in a basement with no windows.

The general consensus online is that the ST50 is the best value available for an excellent picture. Always wanting to get the biggest bang for my buck, this consensus opinion was the number one factor in my decision.

As I said, I read a lot of reviews and, despite the consensus above, had a number of reservations because of issues that others encountered with the ST50. Here is a summary of my concerns and my findings. I should note that I ran the screen prep slides that you can find out there on the message boards and then played around with two different suggested calibration settings. I have no idea whether the screen prep slides are necessary and can't say whether they prepared my screen for calibration. What HAS been proven is that I am a serious nerd.

Screen buzzing: Some reviews have noted screen buzz. I was very concerned out of the gate as the screen prep slides have a white slide. When this slide was shown and all of the phosphors were glowing at 100%, there was a clear buzz emanating from the TV.

Size Name: 60-Inch Verified Purchase
(EDIT: review of the 60" if that matters)
Where I'm coming from: I don't use 3D. I hate motion blur but I also hate "smoothing" technology. I haven't upgraded my sound yet so I'm using the stock speakers. I tried 3 plasmas from 2011 and each one had some sort of flicker or brightness pop that was just unacceptable. Here's my review.

IQ: Head and shoulders above what I've seen in the same price point of last years plasmas and this years LED. The colors are capable of natural skin tones and vibrant digital images. My wife and I randomly say "wow" while watching blu-rays. It's really impressive. Part of this success I attribute to...

Black levels: I was never out for the best black levels since it appeared to be expensive to have "the best". Now that I have a TV with amazing black levels I understand the draw and I must say it is worth it to seek that out when shopping. Dark scenes keep you immersed in what's going on and still delivers amazing detail in blacks and grays that most likely were lost on other TVs. One thing stood out to me, the bezel and the letterboxes are the same color black. I never got the feeling I was watching a movie with letterboxes at all. Neat.

Glare: Glare is hard to rate since everyone has different setups. I have a slider behind me while watching TV and during the day it's not bad with a little down tilt thanks to my wall mount. I don't do much daytime viewing so it's not become a problem.

Stand: The TV stand is sturdy but quite deep. It takes up my entire entertainment center top (~15"). There are zero adjustments to make like tilt or swivel so I could see that base creating issues if you intend on it being anything other than straight on viewing without deeper furniture.

Bezel: The ST30 was really ugly.

Size Name: 60-Inch Verified Purchase
I'll keep this review short and sweet, unlike some of my other reviews. I have only had this TV for a few weeks now and I must say the picture quality (PQ) blows away every other display I have ever seen. I have read other reviews mentioning the old Pioneer Plasmas and some brought up the Samsung line but I never really got caught up in the plasma world when those manufacturers reigned supreme. As far as modern-day HD is concerned, I believe the best technology is plasma and Panasonic has the best models available-period. I'm not saying plasma displays are without quirks and issues. There is always a concern about image retention (IR) and screen burn-in if you are not careful. And I recommend following the advice of experts when it comes to breaking in a new plasma display. Yes, that means setting up your brand-spanking new TV and watching a seemingly never ending slide show of colors for 100 hours. Yes, that's 4 days of semi-torture that you must endure if you want the best PQ and the most consistently beautiful display for years to come. Plus, during the prep you can observe the display for defects.

Check out Hi-Def Junkies, D-Nice is a great, albeit persnickety video calibration expert over there: [...]
As for the ST50s menus and such, you might find navigating through everything a bit daunting at first. The quick start guide was infinitely more help than the "manual" supplied. The on screen help is readily available from a single button on the remote. The network setup is very straightforward and the Viera connect works well with windows computers for media sharing. It will connect to your wireless network on the 5MHz (N) band, so this will ease your traffic on the crowded 2.4 GHz band.
