Product Details

Panasonic 65" Black 1080P 3D Plasma HDTV, Model TCP65ST60

With the Panasonic TCP65ST60 3D Plasma HDTV, it's clear that cutting-edge plasma picture quality doesn't have to command a premium price. The ST60 series Plasma TVs feature specifications similar to the flagship ZT60 series, in models that are priced to be more attractive to the casual viewer.

Ultimate Picture Quality, In Any Setting

It all starts with the Infinite Black Pro panel, which improves upon plasma TV's greatest strength—black level—and helps solve its one biggest weakness—viewing in bright ambient light. The TCP65ST60 displays more shades of gradation, giving images a natural tonality and richer blacks than ever before, in glorious Full HD 1080p. It also improves overall brightness and image contrast, making it suitable for viewing in rooms with lighting that may have caused other plasma TVs to look washed out. The panel features 2500 Focused Field Drive, for optimal display of fast-moving images, so your favorite sports or video games will be rendered with unprecedented clarity. And not only does the Panasonic TCP65ST60 display 3D content from your Blu-ray player, it can also convert all of your favorite 2D content into 3D.

Smart TV Features Give You Unlimited Content

Beneath the stunning screen, Panasonic filled the TCP65ST60 with a wealth of Smart TV features. Start every viewing at a personalized Home Screen, which contains shortcuts to your favorite TV content, as well as smart apps, a web browser and your multimedia library. Viera Connect gives you access to video-on-demand, streaming services like Netflix, games and other cloud-based content. If you'd like to view your own photos or videos, the ST60 series can stream media from your home network, or plug a flash drive into the USB port and use the built-in media player to showcase your favorite photos. And Swipe & Share lets you transfer content between your smartphone or tablet and the TV with simple gestures. More than just a plasma TV, the Panasonic TCP65ST60 is a total multimedia entertainment hub.

  • Enjoy the Ultimate 3D Experience
    The display alternately shows images for the left and right eyes. The left and right lenses of the eyewear open and close in sync with this display timing to show separate image to the left and right eyes. By repeating this action at high speed, the brain perceives 3D images. And because this method displays FULL HD 3D images just as they are, both eyes receive 3D images in high full HD quality
  • 2500 Focused Field Drive
    This original Panasonic technology detects image movements like the human eye, and optimizes the drive accordingly. By achieving instantaneously powerful light emission rather than finely divided emission, it reduces the afterimages that cause blurring. As a result, fast movement is reproduced with excellent clarity
  • Infinite Black Pro
    Enhancements to the panel and cells help reproduce images with smooth, national gradation and deep, rich blacks- even when viewed in bright surroundings. In movies, the true, deep blacks faithfully convey the intent of the filmmakers, adding power and realism to the viewing experience

  • Wireless LAN Built-In

  • VIERA remote 2

Tap and flick-based commands are intuitive. And functions like Swipe & Share make TV much more fun and easier to use
  • VIERA Connect
    VIERA Connect is a cloud based internet content access that brings you video-on-demand (VOD), catch-up TV, games, educational content, and lots more, through a wide range of apps. It's a great way to enjoy virtually limitless contents in your living

  • Media Player

    VIERA's large screen. You can also add frames and other effects to your photos and videos, and create slide shows complete with background music. A wide variety of formats are supported, so you can listen to PC-based music files and web movies right on your TV
  • Mercury and Lead Free
    Panasonic is committed to making our products more friendly to the environment. In line with this commitment, all
    VIERA plasma display panels are free of both lead and mercury. This reduces the impact on the environment years down the road when the TV is recycled or retired from use
  • Long Panel Life
    One important way consumers can protect the environment is by choosing high-quality products and taking care of them so they last for a long time. A high-quality VIERA HDTV can help. Thanks to a newly designed phosphor process and rear panel process, our plasma panels last for up to 100,000 hours before the brightness decreases by half. That's more than 30 years of viewing 8 hours a day

              Best picture quality on TV I've seen and owned, including 4K LCD's that cost more than double. Last of the plasmas is worth it! I don't care about the extra $30 per YEAR I'll spend on electricity.

                  Comments about Panasonic 65" Black 1080P 3D Plasma HDTV:

                  This TV rocks. It's the only TV ever to get a perfect rating from Cnet...yes...ever! I'm amazed at the image quality even up close...and it's a 65 inch TV so you'd expect to see much more pixelation up close. I watch it from as close as 4 feet away and it looks beautiful - I usually watch from about 15 feet away and it's just plain wow.

                  I have the TV in a pretty bright living room (unobstructed eastern exposure with windows in the ceiling as well) and the image is still fine during the day, no problems seeing it and I don't even have the brightness turned all the way up. There's an anti-glare coating, but there is glare when viewed at an angle in a bright room, but this isn't so bad that it can't be watched and I think matte screens are ugly and have less sharp image qualtiy so I'll always live with some glare. At night, this thing looks like a $5,000 TV! I've been watching it for well over a month now and I'm still amazed at how beautiful the image is. Auto-dimming/brightening allows me to not need to adjust the brightness between day and night - I just picked a good baseline brighness and it adjusts around that.

                  Sound on this TV is decent, but most people will buy a sound bar or sound system so who cares about built in sound - better to have a thin TV with incredible picture quality.

                  I bought this 65 inch because the 60 inch was sold out everywhere in Chicago and I really wanted this one. Abt was the only store in Chicago that had this TV in stock in any size. I'm delighted that I did not get the 60 inch as 65 seems barely large enough though visitors always comment on the hugeness of our TV.

                  I'm no 3D buff, but I've tried it and it's impressive on this TV. The glasses feel very light and cheap, but they're wide enough that you can forget you're wearing them and the active 3D works well. I'm just not used to watching things in 3D and it bothers me a bit.

                  The only qualm I have with this TV is the internet browsing interface does not provide for easy typing on a keyboard. You can install the app on your phone or tablet (I use ipad and iphone) - you type your address bar info and then push it up with a button, but once there's already text in there that you want to edit, you need to delete it all out and retype...not easy or quick to use. But how often do I really need to search the internet on my TV - it will allow for streaming of online content, but it's more finnicky than apple tv or simply hooking up the ipad to an input.

                  At the end of the day, we buy a TV to watch it. This TV delivers the ulimate viewing experience short of a TV costing twice the price - and even then, it probably beats out a lot of $4K tvs as well. Audio on this tv is normal, but the optical digital audio output allows for ultimate audio as well if you're into that.

                  Simply put, there is no better TV for this price anywhere. There is no more expensive TV with an image quality worth the premium over this TV. And there is no cheaper TV with an image quality worth the price reduction under this TV.

                  I love my new 65VT60

                  By 

                  from New York, NY

                    Cons

                    • Expensive

                    Best Uses

                      I purchased the Panasonic 65VT60, 8 weeks ago. I have been able to use it consistently since purchasing and this is by far the best TV I have ever seen or owned. I am so glad I made this purchase. • Picture Quality â€" o Action Movies: I recently watched The Amazing Spiderman on blue ray, with this tv. The picture was outstanding. Crisp, clear and bright. I tried out the “vividâ€� setting on this movie and was blown away by the contrast and black levels. It felt like I was in the tv o Sports: I’ve been patiently waiting for football season to come back before writing this review. One of the main reasons for buying this tv was to watch football every Sunday. The 65VT60 did not disappoint. There was no motion blur whatsoever, while watching live football action. I watched the Superbowl last year on a 70inch LED and my 65VT60 blew that TV out of the water. o Various cable programs: I’m still playing around with the various picture settings to figure out what works best for each program at different times of the day. This tv is placed in a bright room and the THX bright room option is perfect for day time watching. • VIERA® Remote 2 â€" I downloaded the Panasonic remote app for my Iphone 4S. I love that I can access all features of the tv, including advanced picture adjustments, through my smartphone. The app is extremely user friendly, even my wife was able to use it. • My Home Screen is the initial screen you see when turning on the television. This TV is so big that you’re able to watch tv in one corner of the screen while surfing the web, etc., in another. My home screen makes this TV the centerpiece of the home. You can access apps, surf the web and even make voice memos for other members of your family. • Built-In Camera â€" I LOVE having a built in camera on my television. Skype is amazing on a 65 inch tv. My kids get to skype with their grandparents and see them on a HUGE screen instead of a small computer monitor or tablet. The pictures is clear and the app works seamlessly. • Swipe & Share 2.0 â€" I tried using Swipe and Share from the Iphone app but unfortunately, my pictures and video would not transfer to the television. I kept receiving an error message. I’m not sure if it’s an iphone issue or the type of media I was sharing but I really hope this works better in the future. The idea is great but the usability is currently limited. • Audio Performance â€" Built-In Speakers The VT60 produces the best sound of any TV I’ve had. That being said, I recommend a better sound system. If you are spending this much on a TV, I suggest using a sound bar or receiver/spearker combo. •Voice Interaction â€" using the touchpad remote, I was able easily search for restaurants and sports scores with the press of one button. The voice search accurately picked up what I was saying 90% of the time. • Electronic Pen â€" The electronic pen is a large stylus like writing tool that allows you to safely draw on your VT60 plasma. I bought the Electronic pen so my daughter can use the drawing/painting app. She is obsessed and addicted to this app. I have to keep an eye on her to make sure she’s being gentle with the television but I’m really glad I bought the pen. I hope more apps become available that allow use of this pen, but if not, its still worth using on the paint app.

                      Pros

                      • Easy to use
                      • Exceeded expectations
                      • Excellent picture quality

                      Cons

                        Best Uses

                          Overall, this is an excellent performing TV; the best on the market. Some of the less important features need a bit of work (smartphone remote, voice interaction), but doesn’t take away from the awesome picture quality. When watching a blueray on this TV, everything else doesn’t matter. Its that awesome! Picture Quality: Excellent!! Picture presets in my opinion are perfect without having to do too many tweaks. For most programming, I use the THX Cinema mode without the motion smoother (a feature I’m still trying to get use to…I feel it makes image movement unnatural). I haven’t had the time to calibrate the picture using the professional and custom modes, but appreciate having the option in case I do get around to using them. Watching action movies is a treat. Dark levels and shades were awesome, coloring is perfect….so much detail with bluray movies and HD content. Sports programming from motorcycle/auto racing to boxing, baseball and basketball look great. This is where the motion smoother works well with fast moving objects. Smartphone Remote: Using the smartphone as a remote was not ideal. To get to the various buttons required having to scroll to the left or the right to get to the desired buttons. Response is good and all works, but took considerable more time to get what I needed. Maybe this is something that I can become more efficient with over time. Home Screen: Setup is a breeze, easy and intuitive, but probably something I would not use on a regular basis. With my busy schedule, getting access to things like my calendar, weather status, and other apps is something I prefer to do from my smartphone, on the go. The Home Screen Features are plenty. There is a decent number of relevant apps. I also do like the DLNA feature to pull pictures/videos from my NAS drive. However, there are some videos that would not play so adding support for all video and audio formats would be good. Built in Camera: Resolution is only OK. However, for things such as Skype, the camera works fine. Swipe & Share: This feature is great! It worked perfectly. I was able to share picture and videos directly from my phone to the TV wirelessly. Sometimes playback was a little choppy, but only once in a while. Audio Performance: The built-in speakers play considerably loud without distortion, but lack very deep bass. But this is a given for built-in speakers. Overall good sound, especially for built-ins. Voice Interaction: Needs some more work. No matter how clear I tried to speak into the remote, more often than not letters like “m� would come out “n�.

                          Best Uses

                            I own the 60VT60 and it has the best picture I've ever seen. I went from a old 50V10, which I thought had awesome black levels. The black levels on this are the best I've seen. I used to be a salesman for a high end A/V store so I've seen them all. But this TV takes the cake. I watched the Stanley Cup and WOW. The motion control was outstanding compared to my old V10. My girlfriend could actually follow the puck! Although she didn't care for the motion smoother when watching Avatar in 3D. I mainly watch the TV in the home theater mode which has pretty accurate color out of the box. I'm going to let the set break in for about 100 hours and then have it professionally calibrated. This TV has so many features I really don't know where to begin, so I'll focus on a few. First the home screen. You can customize it like your smart phone. Choose between two layouts or create your own. Makes it easy to keep up with Facebook and the weather with out checking your phone all the time. You can also upload your own back ground photo. Second is internet connection/apps. It took about 1 min to set up the wireless internet connection so I could Skype my sister. The built in camera works great! There are so many apps I have yet to use them all. I do like to check the weather a lot though. Third is the swipe and share. I downloaded the Viera TV app for my android phone so I could show pics to my girlfriend and not have her saying, "I can't see, gimme your phone". The best feature on the Viera app is the calibration controls. I fool with them daily. There is a slight delay using your phone because it goes through your wireless router. I wish it would be a direct Bluetooth connection. The fourth feature is Voice Interaction. Not a big deal to me but everyone else seems to love it. It works ok, a few times it didn't under stand what I was saying. But I guess all companies are doing it. You can also do the voice commands on the phone app. Another cool gizmo is the 2nd remote. I love the track pad and ease of use. I just wish it had the 3D button like the big remote for ease of 3D viewing. 3D viewing of 3D Blu rays is out of this world. The 2D to 3D conversion is not the best, but no company right now makes it look good. The glasses that come with the TV are the battery type, I kind of wish they were rechargeable, but no big deal. They fit over my eyeglasses and are comfortable. As far as the audio of the TV, the sound is good for a thin TV. I didn't expect them to be as good as they are since I'm an audiophile, but I was impressed with the thin drivers. For the money this TV is outstanding. If you want the best picture and black levels stay away from those LEDs and buy this TV!
