Summary: I've had this TV for about six months now and absolutely love it. The blacks are incredible and the detail in portrait shots tops both my old Samsung LCD as well as some newer LCD models that my relatives have. Docking it a star because there's one small stuck pixel in the top right of the screen.
Summary: I'm prepared to do a five star rating but I want to get some more hours on the TV and also see how it performs after I've done a calibration. However, I like the rich colors and the ease it which it could be set up. Many others have written extensive reviews whose technical knowledge far exceeds mine so I will leave it to them to cover the details. One item of importance and that is the 3D glasses.
Summary: This picture quality of this TV is excellent! The 3D is also very good, but I honestly cannot compare it to other 3D TVs since I haven't seen any of those. The sound leaves a bit to be desired, so if you listen to Pandora thru the TV, you'll be disappointed. The speakers just don't have the capability to produce good music from them, being that the TV is so thin.
Summary: I am pleased with the new TV. My wife keeps asking why I got a plasma rather than the "other kind" our son-in-law has. I haven't told her that Panasonic has gotten out of the plasma business. After viewing it for 100 hours, I adjusted the settings according to an online advice article. Great improvement, but the wife keeps saying that the image isn't as sharp as SIL's. I think they have their 60" Samsung set to a higher contrast, higher vivid, etc.
Summary: We shopped around for the best quality 3D TV before deciding on this unit. We have not been disappointed except for the fact that the Smart part only lets us access Google Chrome. We tried to watch a back story of a TV show we had missed, the web site said we need to download Adobe. Chrome would not support this software. We had to connect our laptop to the TV and watch though the computer feed. Its hard to surf You Tube since there is not a keyboard.
Summary: I am really happy of that TV that is easy to use and to configure. I am using it with my media center and I must say that I was wondering why my screen was not displaying correctly (half a inch was missing all around) when I first plugged it in. Finally found the setting that says that input is in fact real 1080P. Not using all the wifi / softwares that come along with and have no intention to do so.
"Bandwidth Too Low" Error when streaming Amazon Prime HD Movies
2 October 2013
Summary: Purchased the Panasonic Viera P50ST60 (50" plasma) about three months ago and have enjoyed watching movies (incl. HD) via the Amazon Instant Video app with my Amazon Prime subscription. About two weeks ago, I began getting an error message "Bandwidth Too Low" whenever I tried to watch an Amazon Prime HD movie on this set. Recently Amazon has made almost all of the Prime movies available in HD only. Called Cable/Internet provider and upgraded broadband (now 5x faster).
Summary: I have owned the Panasonic Viera TC-P50ST60 50 inch TV for about a month. I purchased it through Amazon and it was shipped by an independent carrier. The delivery man could not help set up the TV, so I had to do it on my own. It is extremely heavy, so I recommend having at least two strong people to do the job. Once the TV was on the stand, it was easy to plug into my AV receiver. The wireless connected to my router right away.
