Conclusion: With the Panasonic TC-PST50 series you get accurate colors and solid black level performance in a nicely styled plasma HDTV, but the panel doesn?t get very bright, and 3D glasses are not part of the deal.
Pros: Excellent color accuracy. Good black levels. Robust audio output. Sleek design.
Cons: Not very bright. Uses lots of power. Only three HDMI ports. 3D glasses not included.
Conclusion: If we didn’t already know that the TC-P50ST50 wasn’t Panasonic’s top-of-the-line plasma, we’d swear that it was. Based on picture performance alone, this could just as well be Panasonic’s flagship model. That it isn’t comes down to a few bells and whistles and a slightly trimmer form factor. For the majority of shoppers interested in plasma, the $,1500 (roughly) TC-P50ST50 is the ticket to top-tier performance at a totally accessible price.
Pros: Outstanding black level and contrast performance, Great brightness, Nearly perfect color, Naturally smooth motion, Excellent Internet portal (Viera Connect)
Cons: Black levels suffer in bright rooms, Limited HDMI connections, no PC input, High power consumption, high heat output, Calibration takes a while
First Review: 2012 Panasonic VIERA TC-P50ST50 50-Inch 1080p Full HD 3D Plasma TV
2 March 2012
Excerpt: I've been viewing our ST50 for the past few days I have not noticed any green blobs or fluctuating brightness. I've enjoyed watching this TV with quite a bit of varied content, DIRECTV, BD, and lots of streaming. Today I invited my very good friend Ed Johnson to do the calibration and take all of the measurements.
Conclusion: Si buscas una pantalla de buen tamaño que tenga resolución Full HD y que esté lista para reproducir contenido 3D, ésta de 50 pulgadas es una muy buena opción. Además, cuenta con tecnología que mejora toda la experiencia visual.
Pros: Reproduce contenido en 3D pero se necesitan lentes y tiene conexión a Wi-Fi.
