    This is my first Panasonic TV (or 3D TV for that matter) and I've been very impressed with it. Having done a fair amount of research on 3D Tv's this seemed like an affordable option. This is the 2nd generation 3D Tv that Panasonic have come out with as far as I know and there are improvements - the first generation are VT20's or GL20's. The main difference as far as I am aware to the older versions are that Panasonic have developed technology to reduce crosstalk which occurs when you are viewing material in 3D and it's not looking quite like it should (each active pair of glasses basically show separate images to each eye making it seem as though something is in 3D but fails to happen properly during crosstalk).
    This ST30 model is missing DNLA (which allows for easier and better networking with your other multimedia items in your household, and better looks from it's more expensive brothers GT30 and VT30. It also has faster-switching phosphors, reduced power consumption and a new screen filter.

    When you get your brand new shiny 3d TV, the first thing you will need to do is attach the base stand to the actual TV. You can do this on your own but is a little tricky. There is a forked prong that fits into the base and you screw this in but make sure that you look for the black plastic cover before you attach it to the TV which was found separately at the bottom of the box with mine. The TV then slots onto the forks and you screw this on. The TV can then swivel on it's stand to about 35 degrees either way from straight ahead .Unlike the Panasonic flagship the ST does not come with any 3D glasses so you'll have to buy your own.

    The Panasonic P50ST30B Plasma Television is at face value a very nice piece of equipment. It had full 1080P high definition capability, displays full HD 3D, produces deep blacks, deep colour and very nice picture quality.

    Unfortunately it also has two glaring problems that are so obviously unacceptable in a TV costing as much as this model does that I wonder how Panasonic have the nerve to even consider marketing the set.

    The first of these is a sudden and highly distracting shift in brightness in certain scenes. Panasonics customer services department call it a feature, I call it a very obvious and totally unacceptable design flaw that makes the set virtually unwatchable. Imagine if you will an audio device that randomly alters the volume and how annoying that would be and you will have some understanding of how frustrating an apparent brightness shift would be on a video display.

    The second issue which my ST30 has is random patches of green on some areas of the screen which are particularly visible on greyscale images. This is also visible in colour images, depending upon the colour of the image being displayed.

    I am deeply disappointed with this TV set and would not recommend it to anybody until Panasonic UK have the decency to recognise the flaw in their product and takes steps to address the issue. Panasonic in the US are doing just that and are hoping to issue a firmware update. The same update is needed in the uk but I cannot see that happening when the company refuses to recognise the issue.

    Stay well clear!

    UPDATE: Panasonic UK are are now achnowledging that FBr is an issue are are collecting data from customers as well as investigating the issue at their factory.

    First off i have to say how utterly pleased i am with this 3D Plasma TV, it really is astonishing what you can get for £500 these days! It took a lot of research, bouncing between different makes models and screen tech before landing on this the Panasonic TX-P42ST30B. In the eternal battle between LCD and Plasma...Plasma wins hands down. Frame rate, colour reproduction, black levels and viewing angles are all superior on Plasma at this price range and IMO in general.

    Ok, down to the TV itself. The picture quality is astounding, once you have calibrated it yourself away from the factory settings. This is a pretty simple task, with a minimum of parameters to choose from. You have six basic picture presets, each with a different set of values. For example; "dynamic" mode is very vibrant, over saturated and uses a high amount of contrast. "Normal" mode is very dark with low contrast and colour, this incidentally is the setting that the TV comes shipped with and really doesn't do the set justice, but as i mentioned earlier in the review, once you choose your own settings and have calibrated it yourself, this Plasma really shines. The next two presets are the ones worth concentrating on, these are "Cinema" and "True Cinema" take the time to make adjustments to these, using the brightness, contrast, colour and sharpness settings and you won't be sorry you have bought this TV. Personally i use the "cinema" setting as i find it gives the best balance between brightness, contrast and realistic colour reproduction. The other two setting are "Game" and "photo", which are pretty self explanatory in what they are best used for.
    A word of advise though.
