    Amazing Picture, Panasonic understands TVs!, April 15, 2013
    By

    I will keep this as brief as I can and will not get too technical. I have done a lot of the research and visited the HDTV enthusiast forums and looked high and low for the right TV in my price range. The TV I was told to buy from several sources was the Panasonic ST50. That TV was discontinued to make way for it’s replacement (2013) model the ST60, so I got it. I have been nothing but pleased with this TV and it’s features.

    If you want a superior quality pictures with all the right blacks and vivid colors, look no further. If you just want a great TV for the money, look no further. How this TV gets this quality at this price range is a mystery to me. It is a plasma TV, and there are some advantages and dis-advantages to that. Mostly advantages, but not for everyone. Disadvantages that might disqualify this TV to someone could be the weight, since plasma TVs are a bit heavier… so if you plan on hanging this somewhere that the weight might be an issue, get an LCD. Also if you view TV in the daytime in a room with a ton of windows for some reason (your likely watching soaps), you might want an LCD that handles highly lit rooms a little better. It is also a bit more fragile than an LCD and the glass is more likely to break if something hits it (kids toy, wii remote etc), you can buy a screen protector to solve that issue, but you will spend an extra $140 or so.

    Anyhow, I have compared this TV to the ST50 and the quality of the image is the same. They use identical boards and screen tech. The only noticeable changes has been updates to the Smart TV interface and options and the slight difference in appearance (ST50 had transparent plastic rim along the frame of the TV, the ST60 has a small silver rim. The remote is also slightly different, the new one is not backlit and the 4-way controller around the “ok” button is now 5 buttons and not one connected pad. The ST60 comes with two pairs of 3D glasses, the ST50 came with none. The ST60 can also use the new Panasonic Pen (does not come with the pen) that can be used to draw on the screen to alter photos, draw pictures and play games (seems like a useless feature, I would not let my kids advance on my TV screen with a pen). In every other way the same TV.

    Note: You should break in new Plasma screen TVs by allowing them roughly 100 hours of viewing before you watch too much TV with sidebars, Netflix interface and games with static HUD elements. They can potentially cause burn in if left on screen too long. Modern Plasma has mostly eliminated these issues, but it is a good idea to break in the phosphorus at the same rate if for nothing else to give your TV the best chance at a long life of use. Some people run color slides like a photo slideshow to break in their new plasma TVs… while this is not really necessary, it is common practice and I did it myself. It is just a good way to control the break-in process and it makes you feel like videophile (even if pointless).

    There you have it, my bloated review of an awesome TV.

    If you read nothing else, read this. This TV is a great buy. Amazon is a great place to buy this TV, so if you can afford it, and don’t need the bleeding edge $4k TV… get this one it’s just as good.

    An Outstanding TV for the 99%, April 17, 2013
    By 
    T. Dowdell (Seattle, WA) –
    (REAL NAME)
      

    I am definitely not a videophile but am a techie. So when searching for a TV to replace our twenty year old Sony tube (which is still great) I was able to catch on pretty quickly to new features. Our list was fairly simple: light TV viewing, medium movie viewing, light video game usage, light web and apps usage, $1500 or less and 50+ inches.

    As my daughter and I drove to Costco she poured over the March 2013 Consumer Reports and had concluded that we should get a Panasonic plasma. I like Panasonic but has reservations about plasma based on vague anecdotes about short life spans and energy use. We arrived at Costco and were lucky enough to quickly find their electronics guru. I described our criteria and he firmly recommended the Panasonic ST and VT plasma’s but said Costco did not carry them.

    We looked around Costco’s impressive selection and asked for guidance. Features aside, our eyes easily picked out the sharpest pictures and they were the Samsung Smart TVs in the $1550 – $2800 range (we didn’t bother to look at the more expensive sets). The $1550 Samsung did not have 3D, had a plain plastic bezel and was at the high end of our price range so we were at an impasse. The friendly guru reminded us that in his estimation, the Panasonic ST50 (exactly the one Consumer Reports raved about) or the 2013 version, ST60, was his first choice by far in our price range. We left empty-handed.

    That evening we researched the Panasonic and found that it really was in a class by itself for the price, underscored by CNET’s 5-star rave review. So we headed to a local video store the next night and checked out their selection and came to the same conclusion: Samsung Smart TVs and a couple others had outstanding pictures. But the Panasonic Viera 55″ ST60, at nearly half the price, stood fearlessly among the best. The decision was easy. Not surprisingly, the store was fully stocked on Friday but by Monday night had only one left in the region so we had to drive further to selfishly snag it.

    We’ve barely scratched the surface but setup was easy and the remote is fine though not universal. The picture is jaw-dropping and is plenty bright in our fairly sunny living room. The user interface is impressive and easy to navigate (Netflix, YouTube, web, etc.). On a humorous note, my daughter downloaded the Panasonic app for her iPhone and commandeered the TV, rendering my remote useless. Then, with a flick of her fingers, swiped a picture from her iPhone onto the TV screen. We will send in the rebate to order a touch pen that allows drawing on-screen and, apparently, is free.

    Worth noting: because the TV’s processing power is so robust, it is prone to something called the “Soap Opera Effect” (Google it). This is not unique to Panasonic. The TV interpolates frames to make the picture as smooth as possible. In most contexts this is probably desirable. But watching a movie I immediately sensed something bothersome. The movie lost a certain richness and didn’t look like film, but more a nicely produced PBS British serial. Fortunately, a quick Googling provided guidance: simply turn down / off motion smoothing. In the ST60’s case, it’s a menu option called “Motion Smooth.” Upon turning it off, we were instantly dropped into the front row of a grand cinema.

    [update May 25, 2013]
    So far, the TV has worked flawlessly. We still have not used the 3D feature. No trouble viewing, regardless of room’s light conditions or viewing angle. The user interface is good and responsive.

    The apps are very cool but there is one major shortcoming: typing. Unlike a computer, tablet or smartphone, each app handles typing differently. So YouTube, Pandora, Web Browser, et al, each have a unique approach (i.e. non-platform standard) to accepting user input. I could be wrong about this, but even though the remote has letters printed on the main number keys, they do not seem to work from app to app. Instead, I invariably use the 4-point directional keys to “hunt and peck” each letter. I do not (yet) know if this is user-ignorance, a shortcoming of the Panasonic’s or smart TVs in general.

    On the Big-Thing-Little-Thing scale this is little. All said, I would buy the TV again in a heartbeat.

    55ST60 – Excellent PQ! TV had to be returned but I don’t think it is Panasonic’s fault, April 20, 2013
    By 

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    Upon arrival, the shipper said he really expected the screen to be shattered as the bottom of the box was VERY beat up and the tape barely holding. Also, the shipper said he was concerned about holes in the sides of the box maybe from a forklift pushing it around or something.

    After about 14 days, the TV developed an intermittent fault where the power LED would come on but the screen would not come on. It does this about once every 30 or so power cycles. Turn it back off for a few and it would then come back on normally. So that is why I’m returning this TV. I am not knocking my rating of this panel down because I think the fault is likely because of rough handling by the shipper and is NOT Panasonic’s fault nor is it Amazon’s fault.

    Cedric L at Amazon has been very kind so far in starting the return process. Also, Cedric L at Amazon is the guy who got the shipment “unstuck” immediately when it was seemingly not moving from Denver. More good about Amazon: When this TV was first listed, I purchased at 1699.99. A few days later, Amazon was super friendly about price matching to Sears first at 1499 and then again at 1350 when I saw the price dropped further going from Sears cart to checkout.

    Amazon: Very friendly, super professional. The best, IMHO.

    Regarding the TV: I’m not a videophile, so here are my limited observations: I was absolutely astounded at the picture quality. I participate in the AVS Forum, so I found forum participant D-Nice’s custom calibration for the ST60 and this took it to a whole ‘nother level of awesome. I was amazed this calibrator lists his setting free gratus for AVS Forum members. The pro menus for custom calibration apparently allow good calibrators like D-Nice to really dial things in. D-Nice says he will have custom 3D settings listed soon…

    The sound is not very good, but I didn’t rate the TV down for this as I’ve read that most panel TV’s have kinda’ limited sound as the manufacturer expects everyone to use an outside stereo system and I personally believe that most people probably do.

    The AR (anti reflective) filter works well and I can watch daytime TV with fairly significant amounts of light coming through supposed black out curtains. The curtains are pretty weak for allegedly being “black out”. It is also acceptable with room lighting on. There is glare in these situations, however, I believe if they made the screen totally anti reflective like old matte finish monitor LCD screens, too much picture quality would be lost just to get rid of the last of the glare. So my take on this AR coating is: It is the right amount to attenuate glare somewhat without taking away from this set’s awesome PQ.

    The black subfilter strikes me as very effective. Knowledgeable persons in the AVS Forum have tested the black levels and they are pretty extremely good. Maybe not the best out there, but probably the best in a fairly budget oriented Smart TV.

    One negative: The ST60 apparently has more background processes running than earlier generations of similar models. Since the processor isn’t significantly faster than previous models, there is quite a bit of added input lag. I saw photo proof of actual tests by AVS Forum members with the knowledge and equipment to test the panel compared to the ST50 (last year’s model) etc. Unfortunately for gamers, the ST60 is considerably slower than the previous model returning gaming input lag between 80 and 107ms. I am an amateur gamer on a PS3 so while I probably noticed a little difference, I didn’t find it to be a deal breaker. However, competitive gamers in AVS are reporting that it is just too much lag.

    My recommendation: If you are an amateur gamer like me and use the TV less than 10% of your TV time for games, I believe this really is an amazing BEST BUY and I highly recommend it. If you are a competitive gamer or use the TV 50% or more of your TV time for gaming, it may not be the best panel for you.

    How to know? If you aren’t certain on the lag issue: Some of the AVS members say that their local Best Buy let them bring their game console in and try it out. As for me, I knew within 10 minutes I wanted to keep the set regardless or input lag measurements. I would rather the input lag had not degraded a lot from last year’s model, but the price/PQ (picture quality) is amazing. I think if you try it out as just mentioned in a showroom, you will quickly know if it is ok for you or not.

    However, even if you go to a showroom to check for lag with your game console, I still strongly recommend making the final purchase with Amazon. Amazon has been extremely good to me over the years and NEVER MORE SO than now when this somewhat expensive item developed an intermittent fault.

    A+ for Amazon. Panny needs to do better with the lag issue or other makers may leave them behind. However, I still…
