Panasonic TC-P50ST30

 

While it has its share of flaws, the 50-inch Panasonic TC-P50ST30 3D-ready plasma HDTV is a good choice if you want a big screen at a reasonable price, aren't hung up on low power consumption, and can live with limited HDMI ports.

Good colors and black levels. Solid selection of Web apps.

Only three HDMI inputs. Power-hungry when compared with LCD HDTVs. Active shutter 3D glasses are expensive and not included.

Panasonic TC-PST30 review: Panasonic TC-PST30

 

The Panasonic TC-PST30 has excellent overall picture quality, with deep black levels, accurate color, and solid video processing. It can handle 1080p/24 sources well and exhibits the nearly perfect screen uniformity of plasma, as well as solid 3D...

The chunky ST30 seems dated by today's flat-panel TV design standards. Picture quality flaws include limited brightness--a liability especially in bright rooms--and less-saturated color in its most accurate picture mode. The ST30 has fewer picture...

If you can live with its homely design, the excellent picture quality and feature set of the Panasonic TC-PST30 series combine to make it one of the best plasma TV values available.

Panasonic TC-P42UT50 Review – 42-inch Plasma HDTV

 

It is one of the rare models that comes with a 42-inch plasma screen, but supports the active 3D technology. However, the model lacks some of the features offered by other high-end plasma TV sets available in the market. Along with reduced contrast...

In addition to the online digital content, the model also allows you to access your offline collection of digital content. But the number of HDMI and USB ports attached with the TV set is much lower than the input options offered by similar models...

Panasonic Viera TC-P50S30 Plasma HDTV

 

This 1080p flat panel is not 3D capable, but like most of Panasonic Viera plasmas, it does use fast-switching phosphors and 600Hz subfield drive for sharp motion detail. (Don't compare a plasma's 600Hz subfield drive with an LCD's 120 or 240Hz refresh...

Panasonic TC-P50ST30 3D Plasma HDTV

 

As Panasonic's entry-level 3D plasma, the ST30 is not THX-certified like the mid-level GT30 and flagship VT30. It has five Picture modes: Vivid, Standard, Cinema, Game, and Custom. Apart from the Custom mode, the settings for each mode are global and...

Panasonic has entered this year in style by introducing some of the most innovative models which the consumers are sure to fall in love with. The preview that is available now shows that the manufacturer has introduced 3D in many of the models and you...

What might put you off about this TV is the lack of Internet connectivity. With everyone depending on the Internet in every aspect of their lives, people may not like to buy this model because of lack of this feature. But for those who are interested...
