My Home Screen
My Home Screen provides instant access to your favorite Smart TV contents. The My Home Screen menu leads you to a wide variety of content in addition to TV, including smart apps, an Internet web browser, videos and photos. It provides complete access to everything as soon as you turn on the TV.
Selectable Apps
Selectable apps available from the My Home Screen menu include: Clock, Calendar, Weather, Reminder, RSS, Memo, YouTube, Skype, Facebook and more.
Voice Guidance
SMART VIERA Voice Guidance uses text to speech functions to verbalize text contents on TV. It works well for verbally reading out program information, SNS messages and web page contents.
Full HD 1920 x 1080p 3D Resolution
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 your left and right eye. By repeating this action at high speed, the brain perceives 3D images. Plus, since the TV is compatible with a 1080p 3D signal and the panel has Full HD 1920 x 1080p native resolution, you'll enjoy Full HD 3D images. Two pairs of 3D eyewear are included.
2D to 3D Conversion in Full HD 1080p Resolution
With advanced 2D to 3D conversion technology, you can turn virtually any 2D content into crisp and clear Full HD 3D images. It allows you to turn ordinary TV broadcasts and recorded programs into exciting 3D content.
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 realism to the viewing experience.
VIERA Connect Cloud-Based Internet Content Access
VIERA Connect provides cloud-based Internet content access. It brings you video-on-demand (VOD), catch-up TV, games, educational content and more - all through a wide range of apps. It affords virtually limitless content consumption from the comfort of your living room.
Built-In Wi-Fi with Easy-to-Understand Wireless LAN Settings
With built-in Wi-Fi, no additional equipment is needed to connect with an existing wireless router in your home network. Your Panasonic TV will automatically detect available networks and take you through an easy Wi-Fi setup process.
DLNA Certified
This DLNA-compatible TV makes content easy to share by linking equipment over a home network. Enjoy photos, movies, music and more in the living room, bedroom or any room in the house.
VIERA Remote 2 App
VIERA Remote 2 is a free app available for download to compatible iOS and Android mobile devices. It lets you use a smartphone or tablet as a second screen for watching private content or controlling the TV and adjusting TV settings. It provides intuitive tap and flick-based commands. Plus, it supports easy functions like Swipe & Share 2.0, which make the TV easier to use.
Swipe & Share 2.0
With Swipe & Share 2.0, you can use a one finger swipe to share and transfer video, photos, music contents and web pages between the TV and your smart devices by linking a smartphone or tablet to Panasonic's Smart VIERA TV. You can also share content with friends and family. With a two finger swipe, you can easily save video, photos, music contents and web pages.
USB Media Player & SDXC Card Reader
Thanks to the dual USB ports, you can use a USB memory stick to enjoy previously saved music, photos and video clips using the TV. You can also add frames and other effects to your photos and videos, as well as create slide shows complete with background music. A wide variety of formats are supported, so you can play PC-based music files and Web movies right on your TV. You can also use the SDXC memory card reader for playing media files.
C.A.T.S. (Contrast Automatic Tracking System)
The C.A.T.S (Contrast Automatic Tracking System) feature automatically adjusts screen brightness according to ambient light. When the room darkens, it lowers the screen brightness and adjusts the image quality, resulting in both easier viewing and power conservation.
Mercury & Lead Free Eco-Friendly Panel
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 up to 100,000 Hours
Thanks to an innovative phosphor process and rear panel process, this plasma panel will last for up to 100,000 hours before the brightness decreases by half.

          Great picture. Could use more inputs. Significant input lag so gamers beware. If using with TIVO be sure to change audio settings FROM "Dolby Digital" TO "Dolby Digital to PCM". 3D seemed fine to me, but others have complaints.

          It was easy to unpack and put together.
          It was easy to setup and connect.
          The wireless connection was a breeze.
          I was playing the first DVD in minutes.
          The picture quality literally stunned me.
          WOW!!! What more could you ask?

            Comments about Panasonic 60" VIERA ST60 Series Full HD Plasma TV:

            Fantastic TV for the value. I did a lot of research on the best TV's in the 55-65 inch range and this is the best combination of value and picture quality.

            My goal was to get a 60-inch TV for a reasonable price with the best picture quality I could afford. This was it.

            The image is stunning, especially after some semi-pro tuning of the color settings. And at this price, it's undoubtly worth a few hundered more than the discount options available and it looks so good that it's not worth getting the really expensive models.

            Very, very happy with the TV and I think anyone else would be too.

            Comments about Panasonic 60" VIERA ST60 Series Full HD Plasma TV:

            There's a reason the Panasonic TCP60ST60 plasma TV is top-rated by Consumer Reports and cnet: it delivers a magnificent picture and is a good value! I don't have much to add to the many other user reviews on B&H and other sites, just three comments:

            (1) I used Consumer Reports suggested picture settings and the results are spectacular. (You need to subscribe to Consumer Reports online edition to access this information. Locate the Panasonic TCP60ST60 page and click on the Overview tab. Scroll down about half way to the "Optimized Picture Settings" section and follow the steps. Awesome!)

            (2) The sound quality is fair, typical of most flat screen TVs. I paired the ST60 with a Vizio S4251W-B4 5.1 sound system (another product highly rated by Consumer Reports and cnet) and am very pleased by the outcome.

            (3) B&H is a great vendor! I was nervous about ordering a large, bulky item like this TV and having it shipped across the country. It arrived in perfect condition in a reasonable amount of time.

              Comments about Panasonic 60" VIERA ST60 Series Full HD Plasma TV:

              Received shipment as scheduled, brilliant packaging makes unpacking a breeze. Hook-up was self-explanitory and fairly straight forward (several sources of help and instruction made this easy). There was a minimum of programming set-up to do, again nothing complicated. And, we turned it on. From minute one I new we'd made the right purchase. Everything that professional reviewers/users had said was true, this is truly a Diamond in the Rough...mid-grade and perhaps less sophisticated than it's upgrade sisters, this TV rocks! Blacks are deep inky, with superior definition, colors and saturation are spot on. Plenty of control for the novice or expert...and the price, well--- you can find cheaper units in this size category, but not with this kind of performance. Simply Grand ! *****

                Love the picture and the home screen layout. Was not easy to input the password to my WLAN using the remote or to set up internet websites, you really need a key board for this stuff but you need a USB hard wired key board, not provided. Warning the connections on the back are over to the left so if they were in the middle onyour older unit like mine were the cables may not be long enough,
