Summary: This was a great purchase. I love it, the shipping was great. It was difficult to get by bose sound system hooked up but eventually easy to figure out. The colors are great, deep blacks indeed.
If you are thinking of a new TV with amazing Picture Quality under $1000, the 50ST60 is it

Summary: I am a big fan of plasma TVs. I own a P42G10 from 2009. I love it, I didn't realize how much better the newer plasmas were until I set up my 50ST60. The picture is amazing. I am currently running some slides for break ( for calibration). So far I have not seen any image retention. I mostly game ( fighters) and use it with XBMC. I used D'Nice calibration settings, and wow picture is bright and amazing. Colors are great. It is as bright as any LCD.
Summary: This is simply a fantastic TV; colors are beautiful; easy setup based on setting I found on the internet. Our family room is generally bright in the afternoons, but we found this TV to shine through, unlike other plasmas. Definitely 5 stars.
Summary: First and most important: The quality of the picture is excellent. Blacks are black, not grey. Colors are pretty accurate on the Warm2 color temperature setting. The color and greyscale calibration system is excellent: Primary colors can be adjusted individually to match the HD standard, and the white balance and brightness (gamma) curve can be adjusted at 10 points from black to white.
Pros: great picture, extensive calibration options
Cons: lacks basic broadcast tv features, digital audio output issues
Summary: Quality product, well made, works perfectly. The only 5 star rated TV in History, lives uo to it's ratings. Fantastic White Glove Delivery for free, was brought in to the Play-room, removed out of the box, Then they plugged it in to ensure that it works. To top it all, they took the box away to dispose of it. If you can satisfy a customer as fussy as I am, you have it made in the shade. I recommended it highly.
Summary: Easy to setup and beautiful picture. I have a Samsung and now this. They have a slightly different look for their pictures. The Samsung is sharper but the Panasonic is smooth and realistic. They are both great TVs. Glad to have this one -- I use an antenna and this TV seems to draw in more stations. Excellent product and the delivery was well done and set the TV up with no effort by me!
Summary: As soon as I read that Panasonic was discontinuing production of its plasma line of televisions, I folded and clicked the order button. The ST60 lives up to its reputation, delivering far superior picture quality of tvs double the price from Samsung, LG, Sony, and Vizio. Plasma tvs no longer suffer from burn in issues, and have thin bezels and slender profiles just like LED tvs.
