5.0 out of 5 stars Great TV for good price, April 17, 2011
This review is from: Panasonic VIERA TC-P50ST30 50-Inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV (2011 Model) (Electronics)
I purchased this TV March 2nd. Yes, I was one of the first to get it in my area. Anyway, I waited this long to write a review because I wanted to make sure that this thing did not crap out on me. So far it has been excellent. I reduced the brightness and contrast to around 40 just to break-in the set. the picture quality is amazing. This is my first hdtv, moved from a 22" crt to this one. Everything worked OOTB including wireless and DLNA from my iOmega NAS. Only issue I have is, it does not do audio for converted/ripped mp4 files. Regular mp4 and mpeg2 files are fine. Not tested 3d, not interested either. I did use some settings recommended by D Nice and Chad in their reviews of this set. I had the floating brightness issue, while watching skiing. I had to turn off the CATS and reduce contrast and brightness. I don't see it anymore. It was shocking at first. Now that I don't see it anymore I don't think about it either. the set has slight buzzing that you can only hear when you go behind the TV to listen to it. In other words, nothing to worry about. there is no way to record a program to the sd card in the slot. It is read only for the TV. Would have been nice if you could also record to it. Sound is, well, the same old story. For the price, I don't expect a built-in bose system !! All in all a great set so far. I hope this one lasts like my CRT.
