    Previously we had our older TV accesing Netflix with a ROKU box. With this new ST30 Panasonic W/ Viera connect we have "No" Search Feature within the Netflix Channel. This is dissapointing because now we have to Write the Title down and go to our Computer to add the desired "Special" title (if available). We also have lost the Channel Selection that the ROKU Box was capable of providing. The Panasonic installed version is "Their" selections that are totaly apart from the Special Channels available right at ROKU. This is all very dissapointing because there are alot of movies, documentaries and How To channels that we used often. Now it seems that almost everything involving Other Channels costs more money.

    This TV has excellent picture quality but is completely ruined by a known major issue of Fluctuation brightness during scenes which almost makes certain broadcasts unwatchable. Panasonic USA fails to address this whilee Panasonic Europe has released a firmware patch. There are negative reviews in the 100's on the web on this unit due to this issue. It is too bad, as this tv is exceptional..but the flucuating brightness issue, which seems to get worse over time..is unbearable

        I bought a 2011 P50ST30 at the end of December and I am very happy wih it 3 months later. There are times when the 2D picture has a 3D quality about that is awesome. The Audio for watching cable TV is great.

          Comments about Panasonic 50" VIERA Plasma 3D Flat Panel HDTV:

          Easily the best bang for your buck. Picture quality is amazing. (E.G.: Avatar in 3D is hands down best picture quality I have ever seen hands down.) Once you calibrate this tv, it is second to none. This is my first panny and if they all have picture quality this good, I will never go to another company as features aren't above and beyond but that would only increase the price. Only negative comment would be that I have had several problems with my Viera Cast. It can never connect to my Wifi and when it does, it runs extremely slow. I don't know if it's my tv or viera cast in general. This isn't a big problem seeing that I would never use it anyway, but all other features work perfect. Overall I wanted the best picture quality offered within a reasonable price and this panny does just that.

              This is a great tv. The picture quality is fantastic. I recommend this television to anyone that will listen because you have not met true 3D tv until you have this set. This is the 3rd tv that I have from Panasonic and I have not been disappointed at all.

                Comments about Panasonic 50" VIERA Plasma 3D Flat Panel HDTV:

                I purchased this TV mostly to play games on but I do watch cable and movies on it and so far the picture quality of the new plasma screens with the infinite 2 panel are just plain unreal. there is almost no glare like on plasmas of old. and the picture quality of this tv blows all others out of the water, the smooth images of the 600hz refresh rate just plain destroys any LCD or LED backlit screen on the market. If you are on the fence about LCD or Plasma, look no further this is by far the best quality TV I have ever seen. As for the reports of 'flickering' that is due to panasonic's C.A.T.S. system in all of their plasma TVs. All you need to do Is turn it off from the settings menu and manually change the brightness of your tv.

                                  Picture is great. TV is pretty great. Not much not to like . . . EXCEPT FOR THE HUM!

                                  There is a clearly heard hum that corresponds to the picture on the screen. Very faint to almost gone, when the image is blank, but it can get rather noise on bright images.

                                  I didn't notice it at first, at all, but just about right when the 30-day guarantee was going to expire, THAT is when it became really evident.

                                  Most times, a medium volume will drown it out, but once you know it is there . . . it can be frustrating to ignore.
