Summary: I had bought this TV on November 11 2011 and until today still at night whenever I watch something in high def I appreciate its colors. In this one year I have seen hundreds of shows, movies and have played games in 2D and 3D. Every thing was awesome. I am using my customized video setting because the other 4 options, I didn't like those. But still if anyone still interested to buy this one model from Panasonic he/she would love it.
Summary: OK, so the panel isn't perfect. At less than $1,500, it's not supposed to be. But it is a great value. Reference material shines on this thing. DVD's and Blu-Rays look phenomenol. Xfinity HD cable also looks great. I've had this panel for over 4 months now and it has performed flawlessly. I had some really loud buzzing but it was just a loose screw in the A-board, and I popped the back panel off and tighened it.
Summary: I bought this TV about 7 months ago when my previous one "died". My decision was based on a combination of reviews on here and the reviews on CNET. I have been nothing but pleased with it since! I should add that I did get a home theater system to go with it - the speakers on the TV are not great.
Awesome Price for an even better picture and features

Summary: I read review after review for months before deciding on the st30. Did my research, bought it, did the 100 hours of break-in images, which was torture, and put in the suggested settings found on the other reviews on here. To tell you the truth not too crazy about the settings. Best to adjust to what you think looks good. Thats really all that matters. but do the break-in just to reduce the chance of image retention and burn-in.
Summary: I took delivery of the first TV at the scheduled date and time and didn't have time to inspect it until a couple of days later. When I did open the box I found the plastic bags containing the remote, base parts etc to be already opened and the packaging in general disarray - not "factory packed".
Summary: After researching far too much, I determined this was the best TV for me. CNET.com rated it the best TV of 2011 for the money. It has amazing color clarity, and the blacks, even in a well lit room are striking. I have not watched a Blu-ray with this TV yet, but I have watched HD content on Uverse like NBA Playoffs and Planet Earth. They were both noticably better than my previous 55" LCD. Consider me a satisfied customer.
Summary: EXCELLENT PICTURE, EXCELLENT COLOR, LOOKS GREAT, SOUND IS GREAT. TV IS EASY TO SET UP AND EASY TO USE. ONLY 1 PROBLEM WITH THIS TV. IT WAS SHUTING OFF AND BACK ON. AMAZON WAS GREAT TO DEAL WITH. GOT A NEW TV, A BIGGER ONE(55 INCH PANASONIC) AND SO FAR IT HAS NO ISSUES. VERY HAPPY WITH AMAZON AND PANASONIC TV.
Summary: Set sent by Vann's thru Amazon with free shipping. No evidence of bad handling. Arrived early. Had the almost identical set in 50 inch and loved it for 1 year. Wanted larger set and 60 inch was only about $300 more than smaller set. Put smaller set in another room. Bigger set has a stunning picture and no evidence of lightness fluctuation described in the 1 star reviews. It was manufactured July 2011. Have always has good luck with Pansonic products.
Summary: Just a quick review to confirm what the majority of reviews are saying: First of all, I bought the tv for 2D viewing (3D does nothing for me). After researching them for more than six months, I am SOOOO happy that I went with the Panasomic TC-P46ST. It took me a couple of weeks of minor tweaking to get the picture to my satisfaction, but it was worth it. I was finally pleased with what I was seeing, so I was now ready for the upgrade to HD programming. WOW, WOW, WOW...
Summary: WE waited and waited. Love it and the price was great $809. dlvd! Had it up and running in no time. Took a little bit to configure to our wi fi, mostly because we had never done that sort of thing before. Already watched a couple of movies. Great pic in HD. Love it, Love it!
