Summary: I never get disappointed by Panasonic and this TV is no exception - very good quality of picture, easy to set up and for the purpose of showing designs, it is ideal. The supplier couldn't have been more helpful as they had a problem with one unit and took the time to ring me and explain.
Summary: If I'd have reviewed this TV within the first couple of weeks of owning it, I'd probably have given it 3 stars. But I was warned in advance that Plasma TVs can take up to 200 viewing hours to fully settle in re colours etc. It's true. We've had the TV for 3 months now and the picture was a little milky to start with, with blacks not being as impressive as I'd been led to believe.
Summary: Have got it for a month. Arrived in a couple days and well impressed with the quality of the HD display even on SD programmes. TV guide is easy to use but no preview as with SKY or samsung tv. Netflix not available.
excellent, no problems reported by other reviewers

Summary: Just a short note to say I was very nearly put off buying the 50inch version due to some the reviews / faults mentioned here. But, having the TV three weeks, it has none of the problems reported in other reviews, it is quiet, great picture etc, etc. Price was great, high six hundreds, although strangely gone up now. I updated the software from the panasonic website and it seems fine before and after.
Summary: Panasonic have again delivered a fantastic quality product. The quality of the picture is amazing with deep blacks and vibrant colours. No LED or LCD can hope to match the picture quality of this Plasma......despite some magazines telling you otherwise..they have advertising to space to sell, so use your own eyes. 4 HDMI inputs, component, SCART (if you must), USB recording, DivX playback, digital audio out and internet connectivity with iPlayer etc.
Summary: Having lived with this television for the past month now I have to say it's well worth the money..the floating brightness mentioned in the other review is visible yes, sometimes annoying, but seems to be disappearing with age. It is something that can be fixed with a firmware update also. It's on the GT30 and VT30 and not just the ST30 model, as so is the green blobs issue. I haven't seen any green blobs on my model.
