It features VR-Audio Pro Surround 2.1 for simulated surround sound, dual speakers and a subwoofer as well.

This model also features VIERA Connect cloud-based Internet content access and a convenient My Home Screen menu that provides instant access to your favorite Smart TV content. Plus, with the free downloadable Panasonic VIERA Remote 2 app, you can use your iOS or Android mobile device as a second screen for privately viewing content. The app also lets you control the TV and adjust TV settings. 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.

For connectivity, the ST60 has three HDMI inputs, one of which supports Audio Return Channel (ARC). It also features dual USB 2.0 ports and an SDXC memory card slot, 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, a composite video/audio input and an Ethernet jack for making a wired network connection if you don't have a Wi-Fi home network.

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.

    Panasonic TC-P50ST60 reviews

    50" VIERA ST60 Series Full HD Plasma TV is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture on TV with some issues I just got this TV yesterday, and first thing we noticed was the picture is outstanding. It took a bit of color calibration, but once we found the right settings it looks amazing. Also, the ability to user our phones as remote control is pretty cool. On the negative side, we've noticed issues already with losing wifi connection during Netflix stream. This could be our own networking issue, but we haven't noticed any problems on our laptops. Also, the Viera software is a bit clunky and slow, but that's a minor gripe considering the beautiful picture that this TV puts out.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb Picture The set up was very easy and the stand asembly went smooth. The sound from the television is not very good but we are muting it and runing through the AV receiver and external speakers. The picture Quality is great. Action is very smooth. It has a much more lifelike Hi-Def not like most LCD units I have viewed. Overall we are very happy with the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performance & Value Very pleased with the ST60. When I started out looking at TVs I just assumed I'd get a Samsung LED/LCD but did a bit of research and discovered the Panasonic on CNet. Then I watched the Panasonic next to Samsungs top of the line LED which was more than double the price. Hands down the color on the Panasonic was better than the Samsung...blacks were actually black versus dark grey. After a long weekend of watching college football I also love the fact that there is no motion blur that you get on LED/LCD tvs. Love the SD card slot...I also own a Panasonic x920 camcorder and popped the SD card in from a recent backpacking trip. The image was spectactular...detailed and incredible color. So one advantage to LED/LCD over plasma TVs is the light output. We have the TV in our living room right next to a couple of french doors and the TV on its standard setting (darkest setting) put out plenty of light for day time watching. Would HIGHLY recommend this tv.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from amazing TV for the price Very deep black levels, very high contrast and vey bright images (for plasma standards). I have a 2009 50 9G Pioneer Kuro and let me tell you this TV is really good. It only needs proper calibration (CNET parameters will work) and a good HD source to shine. Otherwise it won't impress you out of the box. The only downsides are below average 3D quality and average plastic construction. But for the money, the picture quality is very good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I've been looking for. I watch tons of sports and this TV is outstanding for the fast motion of football, hockey etc etc.This set replaced an LCD and I wish I had done it sooner. The picture is outstanding with bright colors and black blacks. I like the Smart features but not crazy about the 3D. I have no comment on the 3D feature as I do not care for 3D. I will say that this TV is awesome right out of the box period. I've done a few tweaks but nothing out of the ordinary.You will not disappointed with this set, especially for the price !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great plasma from Panasonic Before buying this plasma, I had been a happy owner of a 42 Panasonic plasma display, bought circa 2003. That unit has been performing flawlessly, and when I heard that Panasonic was discontinuing their plasma TVs I jumped on this one. The picture quality is amazing, especially when calibrated with the info obtained from the web. 3D is good to have and the quality of OTA HD image is wonderful. I envision this unit being part of my home theater for another 10-15 years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy! The best TV $$ can buy in the world!
    Date published: 2013-07-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All of what is said in reviews is true! Used in living room with a surround sound system. My first plasma TV. I read reviews and shopped for months before deciding myself on this Panasonic Series. The high quality picture is what I was looking for and I'm more than satisfied. It's simply the best for the price. It even performs good in medium light room! I strongly recommend it
