Summary: I did a lot of research before buying this HDTV and one of the reasons I ended up with this model is because CNET highly recommended it. I was initially inclined to purchase a LCD HDTV because I read in more than one place that plasma HDTVs were significantly more expensive. But when I read CNET's review of plasma HDTVs in general and why they're overall superior, I more seriously looked at plasma.
Summary: I did a ton of research and finally decided Plasma was the way to go and I couldn't be happier with my choice. Have had it for a couple months now and the TV is fantastic in every way. I have nothing negative to report. I can't believe Panasonic has discontinued making Plasma TV's.
Summary: Item was delivered to home via truck. Delivery was easy to arrange. TV is easy to install due to it not being as heavy as I was lead to believe. Best TV to watch hockey using the HD. Kids say the 3D is "pretty cool" for use with gaming. I recommend this product after using it for going on 5 months.
Summary: As many of us do now a days...we research everything on the Internet to find the best product at the best price. Many reviews said the Panasonic Plasma was the best TV for the money. We bought the 55" Viera from Amazon. Setting it up was simple...screw in the base and it's ready. We have ATT Unverse. Forget about connecting the coax cable from the Uverse box...use the $100 HDMI instead...it's night and day way better.
Summary: I'd advise to get this TV now if you're looking at a plasma. The ST60 fit my budget and needs and it's sad to see such a good product come to end of life. There's still time to find a good deal and price match at the big box stores. Do not wait before it's too late!! If supplies run out, then it might be the best excuse ever to go for a VT or ZT series.
Summary: We are enjoying this tremendously in our small media room, viewing distance about 7-1/2 ft. This is a great TV at a great price. We read the reviews carefully before selecting this make and model. Terrific picture. You will want to add a sound system, but the built-in sound is pretty decent [if you have to use it]. This is a great TV at a great price. We haven't used the 3-D yet.
Summary: We did a ton of research before deciding to purchase the Panasonic ST60. We read through every review on Amazon's website as well as the reviews on CNETs site. We were confident that, for the money, we would be purchasing a HDTV with excellent picture quality. We are your average family with 4 children. As of right now (I'm sure this will change) our gaming is limited to Wii games. As such, we cannot make any comment about the input lag.
Originally went with LED, but so glad I returned it for this plasma!

Summary: I originally went with a high end, brand name LED TV -- guess I just got caught up in the hype. The LED TV looked nice and the picture was good, not great. When it came to dark images, it was simply awful -- and really only gave the best viewing when you sat directly in the center of the TV, so not ideal for a living room setting with sitting areas at an angle. I sent the LED TV back and decided on this Panasonic Plasma.
Summary: Amazing picture quality, USEFUL Smart TV Apps (Especially YouTube - with this you dont even need Chromecast), and good performance under bright lighting (If you stare directly at it, during the day). Of course, if there is a lot of light and you are at a very skewed angle relative to the TV, you do see reflections, but this isnt a deal breaker.
