1.0 out of 5 stars Amazing except for major flaw., July 21, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic VIERA TC-P50ST30 50-Inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV (2011 Model) (Electronics)
I decided to go with the ST30 after recommendations from several sources on a new TV. I spent well over 100 hours running break-in slides and then calibrated the tv using the D-Nice settings. When I first started using it, I was blown away by the picture quality and thought I had made a great decision on a new TV. Unfortunately, there is a major flaw that is pretty well documented if you want to spend some time researching it (though Panasonic still denies the problem exist). This TV suffers from floating brightness levels, which basically means when a scene changes, the brightness will go up or down in a very quick, noticeable way. I was hoping that maybe it was something that would go away as the TV broke in more, but it's still there. I'm well past my 30 day window of returning it, so I'm stuck with it. I would highly recommend looking elsewhere for a new TV until Panasonic actually acknowledges the problem and offers a fix. Until that happens, I will leave my review at 1 star. This TV could be an amazing set for the price, but there shouldn't be a lottery of whether you get a TV with floating brightness levels or not.
