Summary: I got this over other brands because the picture seemed more vivid and sharp and the 3d impressed in the shop and the reviews were also very good. Overall I am pleased and would easily have offered 5 stars for this. However Panasonic are among a growing number of tv makers that try to make money after selling the tv, by only allowing certain products/apps(or whatever they're called on tvs) on their tv. Which is fair enough I suppose.
Summary: I would like to inform you that my new (barely a month-and-a-bit old) 'Panasonic TX-P50ST50B 50-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p 3D Plasma TV with Freeview and Smart Viera - Dark Grey' has crashed twice in the last two days whilst watching normal built-in Freeview. I am NOT pleased. The screen becomes heavily pixelated with a multitude of random colours and freezes, it's accompanied by a loud BUZZ noise.
Summary: Absolutely fantastic Plasma TV. A few niggly bits but as a complete package well pleased. My only real criticism is the poor software support for the USB connections (hence 4 stars when I wanted to give it 5). Some file extensions (AVI, MKV) etc don't work. It seems to be dependent on the software used to create bluray and dvd rips. MP4's are a big no no for the most part.
