Panasonic TC-P50ST50

 

With the Panasonic TC-PST50 series you get accurate colors and solid black level performance in a nicely styled plasma HDTV, but the panel doesn?t get very bright, and 3D glasses are not part of the deal.

Excellent color accuracy. Good black levels. Robust audio output. Sleek design

Not very bright. Uses lots of power. Only three HDMI ports. 3D glasses not included

The Panasonic P55ST50 is a tastefully designed 55-inch plasma HDTV that delivers very accurate colors, deep dark blacks, and wide off-angle viewing. Its $1,700 price tag is not unreasonable considering its performance, but you'll end up spending around...

Editors' note, April 17, 2013: The replacement for this TV, the Panasonic TC-PST60 series , earned an even higher rating as well as our latest Editors' Choice award. This review has not been otherwise modified or updated beyond this note.

The affordable Panasonic TC-PST50 series exhibited outstanding overall picture quality, characterized by exceedingly deep black levels with great shadow detail, accurate colors, and solid bright-room performance. Unlike LCDs, as a plasma it has superb...

The ST50 uses more power than competing LCD TVs, and doesn't perform as well in bright rooms as those with matte screens. It doesn't come with 3D glasses, and it showed more crosstalk in 3D than some competing TVs. The ST50 is only available in 50-inch...

With flagship-level picture quality for a midlevel price, the Panasonic ST50 series sets the value standard among videophile-grade TVs.

Panasonic TC-P50ST50 Review – 50-inch Plasma HDTV

 

The increase in the volume of digital content being made with the 3D technology support has made it essential for a modern family to possess a 3D HD TV set. Panasonic has launched the TC-P50ST50 to complement the entertainment requirements of a modern...

The model also comes with a lesser number of HDMI and USB ports in comparison to the plasma TV sets launched by the manufacturer under the PGT50 series. But a user can use these input options to access his offline collection of digital content stored...

Panasonic's mid-range P50ST50 delivers outstanding pictures, a tidy design and great features to keep plasma firmly on the map.

Superb 2D pictures ; Good 3D pictures ; Excellent price ; Viera Connect is impressive

Less bright than LCD ; Not very energy efficient ; More online video please ; Occasional 3D crosstalk

LCD TVs might be getting better and better every year, but the Panasonic P50ST50 shows that plasma isn't resting on its laurels either. In fact, if you're remotely into movies, its wonderfully contrast-rich, finely detailed and gorgeously nuanced...

Panasonic TX-P50ST50 review

 

Panasonic may have been forced this year into embracing both Passive 3D and big-screen LCD technologies, but it certainly hasn't given up on its beloved Active 3D plasma screens. In fact, the 50in TX-P50ST50 plasma here isn't at all old-fashioned.

Stellar 2D and 3D picture quality; appealing design; decent online service

No 3D glasses included; 3D pictures in particular can look dark

Recommended!

A fantastic Plasma TV to keep LED telly boxes at bay.

Outstanding cinematic picture quality ; Stable and attractive online system ; Fair value

Requires more power than LED equivalents ; Not ideal for bright rooms ; Could do with a few more online video services

Consumer review by:

"Product ok. Panasonic the company is substandard."

 

I won't buy from Panasonic again.

Good value.

Panasonic is a poor company- Not all features work as documented- Terrible documentation, confusing Support knowledgebase - but the worst is rude and unhelpful Support staff- one line answers and not willing to try to provide fixes or workarounds.

"Excellent Picture"

 

Can't imagine a better picture and the hobbit in 3d was awesome that butterfly hovered in the middle of the room in clear detail.

TV speakers kind of blow but don't they all

"Beware of burn-in problem not covered by warranty"

 

If you need a further reason not to buy a Panasonic plasma television besides the fact that the company has announced it is getting out of the plasma business, please read the following:

Hard to find any.

Product displayed burn-in after only six weeks of use. Panasonic denies warranty coverage.

refresh has been bumped up to 2,500 (according to the sticker) and I now see a shimmer or maybe you would call it a flicker as the screen refreshes, it was the same as the old 60hz CRT computer monitors. I liked last years plasma tvs when they were at...

Good color

refresh is to high and now there is a shimmer in the screen.
