Summary: I bought this thing to use a Chromecast with, but was pleasantly surprised by all the Smart TV features. I didn't think I would care, but since I do have Prime, Amazon Instant Video is a nice feature with the VIERA's. Also, I am a huge baseball fan, so having MLB.TV app built in already is very clutch. Now I just need the NHL Center Ice app. I used CNET's recommendations for color settings and it turned out great.
Summary: I wanted to add some details around the Apps and DLNA feature of the ST60 series TVs since most other reviews seem to gloss over them. I have a home NAS (Synology DS211j) which holds all my media (videos, music, photos) and didn't know what to expect in regards to playback ability from the ST60. I'm happy to report that it can handle a good variety of files and formats.
Summary: Wonderful picture, excellent clarity, great black levels and that plasma "pop" in color that is a joy to behold. I have to give props to the Ceva shippers out of Richmond VA. Two men very quickly and quietly set up the TV in my living room, confirmed the display was working and then they were nearly out the door before I could tip them for their excellent, efficient service.
Incredible plasma for everything but video games...

Summary: If you're buying a tv solely for watching tv shows and movies, you won't be disappointed by this one. It's got some of the deepest blacks you'll find, accurate colors, and impressive video processing. It has a good smart-tv package if you need itBut if you have any interest in playing video games on it, unless your tolerance for such things is extremely high, you'll be bothered by the well-documented input lag.
Summary: While the delivery company (Ceva) left a lot to be desired regarding timely delivery, the 60" Viera is a dream. We can see why it was voted 5 stars out of 5 by C-Net when we did extensive research before buying. We were a little worried about going plasma, but Consumer Reports rates the majority of top 10 tv's in the 60" range as plasmas, and after looking at ratings, we decided to take a chance. We definitely are NOT sorry we went plasma.
Summary: I purchase this TV to replace my 6-year old plasma TV. All I can say is "wow". The improvement over the previous plasma TV is significant. The picture quality is the best I have seen. Set-up is easy. Will buy another one for my bedroom.
Summary: No Looking back, Wifi performs well with an access point about 15 feet away. the 3d conversion wroks well depending on the quality of recording or signal of streaming content. Speakers are pretty good i only wish the remote had the ability to control other devices. the custom home screens are a nice feature and it supports amazon prime. The built in DLNA service is also pretty good but only plays divx certified, certain mp4's and mkv.
Not Sure of the 3D but Certainly Love the Rest of It.

Summary: The only reason I am giving 4 stars is because the 3D isn't what I thought it would be. I was warned of that by my A/V buddies but I just had to try it out. I'm not finished "messing around" with it yet though. Other than that, I chose plasma because I had an older Hitachi 42" that I loved. This TV was easy to set up, connected it to my wireless router with no problem. I've only had it for a month and though I work a lot, I'm still finding cool things to do with it.
Summary: Best service every again.Delivery guys came in unboxed it completely checked it over and made sure it was not damage and it was working correctly.Picture is the best i have every seen.Just a outstanding tv.
