5.0 out of 5 stars Great set, great features, great price., April 12, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic VIERA TC-P50ST30 50-Inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV (2011 Model) (Electronics)
I just received this set and set it up. I've owned HDTV's since 2002 and this is my first plasma replacing a 2002 Toshiba 50HX81 rear projection CRT, which I love and still has a great picture. This was also my first set bought sight unseen although I had "laid hands" on last years Panasonic 50G20 a friend bought. So far I'm very satisfied with the pq (picture quality). NB: I have a colorimeter and software for calibrating sets and have done this for years on my own and friends HDTV. Here are my highlights:

* very good anti-glare coatings. The bedroom the set is in gets lots of light and the coatings work well.
* no issues with green globs as some have reported.
* you can hear buzzing, but only with the volume off and your ear to the set. At normal viewing distance you hear nothing.
* no issues with dim images as some have reported.

I've not put a meter on the set yet, but anticipate that is can be dialed in very nicely using the cuts and drives exposed to the user.

Configuring the network (wifi adapter include in the box) took more than one try, but that might have been my problem with case-sensitivity of the passphrase key. I'm currently running it with DHCP with no issues.

One side comment about Home Direct, the shipper for my set. When the set got to my area, they used a local contractor to complete the delivery. They called one day before the expected delivery date and wanted to deliver the set 6 days later than the expected date. Amazon was amazing at helping "knudge" for a delivery date one day before the expected delivery date. THANK YOU AMAZON!
