I spent a lot of time researching this purchase. I chose this model based on reviews, store display and needs...I watch mostly sports and movies. I wanted to test various modes...hockey on looked great the white of the ice and uniforms were not washed out and blacks in the uniforms looked deep and rich. A movie from a DVR looked great in Standard mode. The mini series Band of Brothers DVD, which I've seen many on SDTV looked so much better. I streamed Netflix over Wi-Fi. Initially, I had problems with 4.5 mbps connection but at 16 mbps the picture just popped. I was truly impressed. I am looking for forward to watch a Blue Ray disc on this set.

I recently wanted to purchase a new television, so I started searching the review/opinion sections on the web, so I could find a quality TV at a reasonable price. One site that I review often is Cnet. They had a fantastic review of the Panasonics TC-P50ST50. In fact, they gave it the Editor's Choice award for all TV's they reviewed for the month of March 2012. I decided to go into a few stores and talk to the sales people about this particular TV. They had very good things to say about Panasonic plasma TV's in general. While in the stores, I looked at the various TV's and I noticed that the ST50 and U50 models had a "grainy" pixel look on their screens compared to other TV's of a similar, or less expensive price range. I also noticed that anytime small words/numbers would appear on the screen, they looked blurred, or "fuzzy" compared to other TV's. I just attributed this clarity issue to the contrast and sharpness not being properly set up by the sales people. Overall, as stated in several reviews, the dark colors on these TV's really are vivid and in a dark room this would look outstanding. I opted to buy the TV and when I turned it on and started to set it up at home, I noticed the same "grainy" pixel look on the screen that I initially noticed in the store #Even while playing Blu Ray movies at home nothing changes#. I tried every adjustment possible and it has not improved. Additionally, the TV sits on a stand near a wall and it emits a buzzing noise from the rear. This noise reflects off the wall and when the volume is low, the noise is very annoying. #I'm glad that I opted not to mount it onto the wall# I have owned this TV for a couple of months now and I'm disappointed with my purchase. I know I made the decision to buy this TV, so I accept responsibility for my choice knowing that there might be a picture quality issue compared to other TV's of equal, or lesser expense. I would not recommend this TV to other consumers not only based on the issues motioned above, but also on the lack of HDMI inputs #3instead of the customary 4#and the blurred picture during fast movement, which is supposed to be corrected by the motion smoother option #fr some reason it does not work as it was intended on my TV#

TV looks great, and I exchanged it for a bigger size with no hassles at all, they dropped my new TV and picked up the other TV.
Exceeded my expectations in every way

This TV offers excellent network apps. The Youtube app is especially well designed. The full featured html 5 browser gives me maximum flexibility. The Android/iPhone Viera remote app is killer! Could not be happier with this purchase
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was great for free shipping and arrived in perfect condition. Panasonic customer service was excellent. I had an issue utilizing HDMI ARC capability between the TV and my Onkyo Receiver. it turned out to be the older HDMI cable I was using which was diagnosed by Panasonic support.
Nice set per all professional reviews

For some reason the wired (Ethernet) connection could not get established. Wireless was flawless, go figure! Trying to use the web is futile without a wireless keyboard & mouse, these things should be included. This would greatly simplify the remote too.
I picked this up at the store and got a free bungie cord to secure my trunk lid from the loader dude!

Best bang for the buck
from Atlanta GA
Purchased our ST30 December 2011. Now one year old and no problems to date. Very happy with the picture quality. Speakers are adequate, I wasn't expecting theater quality sound from built in speakers. We don't use 3-D or the Viera Connect so I can't comment but Blue Ray videos played on a Panasonic player look great to me. 3D glasses are not included and be forewarned, the active shutter type required for this set are very expensive.
No one beats Panasonic on plasma TV.True
