"Product ok. Panasonic the company is substandard."
27 October 2013
Pros: Good value.
Cons: Panasonic is a poor company- Not all features work as documented- Terrible documentation, confusing Support knowledgebase - but the worst is rude and unhelpful Support staff- one line answers and not willing to try to provide fixes or workarounds.
Summary: This is a great TV - when it is working. About 7 months after purchasing, the HDMI inputs stopped working. I called it in to the Panasonic and have made no fewer than 8 calls to the service center to get this addressed, and now, 3 weeks later I'm still waiting for an estimated time that it will be fixed - still NO APPOINTMENT!
Summary: Having bought my most expensive TV set ever with raving reviews of the ST50 on every website, I was ready to be wowed. And I felt my investment was justified when I watched my first Blu-ray movie on the set and was bowled over! This was the honeymoon period... In addition to watching movies on the set, I hooked up the stereo to it so I could see info on the music that was playing.
Except for the burn-in and Panasonic, pretty great

Summary: First, I know that not everyone's going to encounter this, and it's entirely possible I got a bum screen. But hear me out. I had this for 3 months without any major issues. I started to play co-op Borderlands 2 with friends a couple hours at a time, a couple nights a week and for a little longer on weekends. And when I wasn't playing, the TV had other exciting dynamic things to display. Now I have burn-in.
Summary: This is my second return in the last three weeks. I was doing the D-Nice 100 hour panel prep running in slideshow mode, when I realized there were four stuck/dead pixels towards the center of the screen. I figured I would continue the panel prep and see if they became un-stuck. After the prep and calibration, the stuck pixels were still evident, so I tried using pixel flipper on the Disney "Wow" calibration Blu-Ray with no luck.
