The Panasonic 50" SMART VIERA S60 Series Full HD Plasma TV offers Full HD 1080p resolution. It can be wall mounted or used with an included stand for flexible placement in your entertainment center. The S60 is equipped with built-in Wi-Fi as well. The TV's advanced 600 Hz Sub-Field Drive technology provides optimum picture detail with virtually no blur - even when watching fast moving sports or action movies.

The built-in Wi-Fi feature allows extensive access to various kinds of media through the Internet. You can instantly stream a wide variety of movies, TV episodes, videos and music from a large selection of entertainment apps including Netflix, YouTube and more. It also supports an Online Movies feature. The S60 also features the free downloadable Panasonic VIERA Remote 2 app, which you can use with your iOS or Android mobile device. It allows you to use your mobile device as a second screen for viewing content or as a remote control for the TV and TV settings.

The S60 supports HDMI with ARC connectivity. It also provides dual USB 2.0 ports, which enable you to share your home videos and photos on the big screen. Plus, you can listen to your favorite music files as well. All you have to do is connect your digital camera, USB-enabled MP3 player or USB storage device through the USB port. Other connectivity options include an optical audio output for surround sound through your AV receiver, composite video/audio inputs and an Ethernet jack for making a wired network connection if you don't have a Wi-Fi home network.

600 Hz Sub-Field Drive
The 600 Hz Sub-Field Drive uses unique image-analysis technology to convert the motion in each scene into data, and each frame is virtually displayed in a shorter length of time, to create crisp images.
USB Media Player
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.
Power Save & Eco Modes
The Power Save Mode adjusts screen brightness to reduce power consumption, while the Eco Mode automatically turns the power off and adjusts the brightness depending on VIERA TV's operating status.
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.
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.
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.

        I was hoping the picture and crispness was all it was bragged about in the reviews I read. While it was/is "good," it was very difficult to find this set and if I had to do it over, I would not have gone on such a hunt.

        Got one while I still could...

        By Frank

        Comments about Panasonic 50" SMART VIERA S60 Series Full HD Plasma TV:

        Waited until the last minute to find myself a Panasonic plasma as they are no longer making them for us average Joe consumers. Did not really need a tv and have always had LG products (which I love). But I'm happy with the purchase especially for the price. Never had a plasma before either and it is a different picture than an LED. Looks smoother, less bright, warmer colors, and perfect for sports and ps4. Low lag for gaming as well. The smart function I don't much care for (very slow and Netflix movies seem to be lower quality) but never use with Roku and the ps4 apps. All in all very happy I took the plunge at the last minute with my first (and last) Panasonic plasma.

            Perfect Price. Works wonderfully for watching cable HDTV, as well as movies that are on my Mac Pro desktop via HDMI (FYI: You have to adjust the resolution in the display menu on your computer to get the image to fit correctly). My only gripe is that the stand does not swivel, so you have to actually move the entire TV at an angle to connect any cables.

            Comments about Panasonic 50" SMART VIERA S60 Series Full HD Plasma TV:

            May be missing a lot of features of the more expensive models but the picture/quality is superb. If you don't care how many inputs the tv has or about all the different wifi apps and features then this tv is great. I'm still tweaking the settings a bit to optimize it but it still looks amazing. once it is dialed in I'm sure it will be hard to beat. it looks 10x better than any LCD in the same price range, you would have to spend at least twice as much to get a similar quality picture. This is my 4th panasonic and each one has been great. I still have my original 42" viera that I bought in 2005 and it still looks very good for a 720p. We didn't realize what we were missing til we bought this 50s60.
