Summary: Image retention is still an issue with plasma TVs, and this TV suffers significantly from it. Even with low contrast, I had issues with image retention, which now makes it difficult to fully enjoy the product. The picture quality is great for movies, but I am nervous about watching sport or news channels now as they frequently have static images such as scoreboards or scrolling tickers which I know will burn in to the screen
Summary: The Panasonic TC-P60ST50 is call a Smart TV. I would question that statement as it is not smart enought to use a mouse or track ball. Of course this only hinders going on-line a navagating links. If you want the smart fucntion of on-line capabilities, shop around, mybe the copetition has a smarter TV. I had to use my laptop to write this as on line the the Viera is to slow.
Cons: Expensive, Did not meet expectations, Poor documentation
