About Panasonic TC-P50ST50

Panasonic Smart Viera TC-P50ST50 50" Class ST50 Series Full HD Plasma HDTV uses Full HD frame sequential technology to create its 3D images. Images recorded in 1920 x 1080 pixels for both the right eye and the left eye alternately flash on the screen at high speed. When you view the screen through active-shutter glasses that open and close each lens in sync with the alternating images, you see breathtaking Full HD 3D pictures with stunning power and realism.

"Vividness," is the keyword in the TC-P50ST50's design. Besides 3D, 2,500 Focused Field Drive technology ensures action with striking clarity while gamers will appreciate the 1,080 lines of moving-picture resolution coupled with Game Mode which optimizes contrast and sharpness and accelerates image processing. And speaking of gaming, downloading games from Viera Connect Market allows you to utilize your tablet or smart phone as a game pad as well as a remote control for browsing the web. And you can do it wirelessly thanks to the TC-P50ST50's built-in WiFi.

If you're short of space, or you just prefer an uncluttered room, you'll appreciate the 3D Real Sound with 8-Train Speakers. Panasonic employs acoustic-field compensation technology to match the soundtrack's frequency to human auditory characteristics. Eight small speakers with reflectors create surround effects enhanced by a super slim subwoofer that adds rumble, thunder and realistic base notes to your programming. You can listen to music or view video and photos downloaded from an on-line source or from an SD card or USB drive thanks to the TC-P50ST50's convenient ports. Your TV's wide connectivity also includes 3 HDMI inputs as well as component, composite and optical inputs.

  • 2D-3D Conversion - Easily Convert 2D Images into 3D: Unique Panasonic technology converts 2D images into high-quality 3D images in real time. The image depth is analyzed from the compositional, color and brightness data of each scene, to convert 2D images into naturally beautiful 3D images

  • Infinite Black Pro: Enhancements to the panel and cells help reproduce images with smooth, natural gradation and deep, rich blacks - even when viewed in bright surroundings
  • Crisp, Clear Moving Pictures: 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

  • Enjoy the Ultimate 3D Experience Via Active Shutter Progressive 3D Method: 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 images to the left and right eyes
  • C.A.T.S. (Contrast Automatic Tracking System): This feature detects the brightness of the room and automatically adjusts screen brightness accordingly. When the room darkens, it lowers the screen brightness and adjusts the image quality for easier viewing while suppressing power consumption
  • Crystal Frame: By softly wrapping the screen in crystal-like transparent material, this light and attractive frame conveys the appearance of a floating image

Best bang for the buck

By

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.

Disappointed

By

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#

So Far So Good

By

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.

Despite the many reviews commenting on the brightness balance it appears that Panasonic has solved the issue. I recommend this product without reservation!
