Excerpt: Just as we thought that the Panasonic Plasma TVs will completely wane from the market, 2013 presented the consumers with a series of plasmas, the budget model ST60 being one of the generous offerings from Panasonic. The ST60 falls right in between the X60 and the much hyped ZT60. Moreover, the ST60 is the lowest priced 3D plasma series.
Summary: CNET's David Katzmaier is blown away to the point where he says that if value is any consideration at all, you should simply buy the TC-PST60 and be done with it. On the strength of its picture quality and selling price, it earns CNET's first 5-star rating for any TV set. Other critics might not be quite so over the top, but admiration for the TC-PST60's value given this set's level of performance is nearly universal.
Pros: Outstanding picture quality, Tons of features, Incredible value
Cons: Picture quality falters in well-lit rooms, Input lag a concern for serious gamers
Conclusion: Go buy this TV. If you want bragging rights, tell your friends that you just bought one of the best-rated televisions ever made. And if they ask why it was rated so well, you can tell them it’s because it was made for smart people who are keen to the laws of diminishing returns and know the best deal out there when they see it…and also read Digital Trends religiously (wink, wink).
Pros: Deep blacks, Great shadow detail, High Brightness, Excellent color, Best value in televisions this year
Cons: Poor sound quality, Remote isn’t backlit, Must disable ads
