The Panasonic TC-PST30 has excellent overall picture quality, with deep black levels, accurate color, and solid video processing. It can handle 1080p/24 sources well and exhibits the nearly perfect screen uniformity of plasma, as well as solid 3D picture quality. Its Internet suite is simple to use yet content-rich, and it includes a Wi-Fi dongle.
The chunky ST30 seems dated by today's flat-panel TV design standards. Picture quality flaws include limited brightness--a liability especially in bright rooms--and less-saturated color in its most accurate picture mode. The ST30 has fewer picture controls than the competition, doesn't include 3D glasses, and uses significantly more power than LCD TVs.
If you can live with its homely design, the excellent picture quality and feature set of the Panasonic TC-PST30 series combine to make it one of the best plasma TV values available.

Step into the 3D World. The VIERA ST30 Series Full HD 3D Plasmas create an all new viewing experience by putting you inside the action and creating a new world of TV viewing realism.
Infinite Black 2
In new VIERA models, contrast in brightly lit locations has been significantly improved. Enhancements to the panel and cells help reproduce images with smooth, natural 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 power and realism to the viewing experience.
Full-time 1080 Moving Picture Resolution
VIERA plasma TVs have 1,080 lines of moving-picture resolution. Newly developed phosphors with minimal afterimages and a new motion compensating technology have made it possible to render faster-moving images with greater sharpness. This far surpasses the APDC moving-picture resolution measurement standard of 5 seconds by providing a moving-picture resolution of 1,080 lines at the 1.5-second level. And it shows the inherently clear motion of VIERA TVs in both 2D and 3D images.
3D 24p Cinema Smoother
VIERA incorporates technology that analyzes picture information in both the preceding and succeeding frames, and creates a precise supplementary frame between them. This suppresses the jerky effect seen in movies, so playback is smooth and natural-looking. The distinctive tonal qualities and atmosphere of the movie are preserved, and you enjoy extremely lifelike 3D images.
Frame Sequential Technology
Panasonic uses Full-HD Frame Sequential technology to create its 3D images. Images recorded in 1920 x 1080 pixels for both the right-eye and the left-eye alternately flash on the screen at the ultra-high rate of 120 frames per second. When you view the screen through active-shutter glasses that open and close each lens in sync with the alternating images, you see breathtaking FULL HD 3D pictures with stunning power and realism.
Brilliant Luminance and Superb Blacks
By combining the highly light-transmissive IPS Alpha Panel and high-brightness backlight, Panasonic have attained both high contrast and low power consumption. Also, by detecting the contrasting parts of the scene, the backlight is adjusted to maintain a brightness that is optimal for each area. Deep blacks are reproduced with no fading. The contrast between the brilliance of diamond-like stars and the deep black of the night sky produces a sharp, crisp image.
600Hz Sub-field Drive
600Hz technology lets you view superb full-HD motion and still images. For even greater clarity with motion images, Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into dots. And each frame is practically displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous systems, to reduce aftereffects.
3D Image Viewer
It’s easy to view 3D photos and movies you shot yourself on the big VIERA screen. After shooting with your 3D-compatible camera or camcorder, simply insert the SD card into the slot on a 3D-compatible VIERA TV. The viewing is incredible, with images so realistic it feels as though you’re right back in the moment. You’ll find that life’s special moments are even more memorable when you preserve them in 3D.
I've had this unit for about 6 months now. It has given me No problems and has No issues! I have it in a rather small bedroom and as such I am viewing it from only about six feet away. I really don't know how even the "pro's" can rate any type of video product. What I think is a fantastic picture... which I do... you may think that I've lost my mind and prefer the picture looking the exact opposite, and the "pro's" will say that we're both crazy. The truth is that everyone is different and have their own idea as to what they like and dislike! Based on that observance, MY PERSONAL viewing experience is positive! The blacks are very black, the colors appear clear, clean, and vibrant. I continually remark on how pleased I am with the overall picture. HD shows are noticeably... well... bam, better than in a theater! The 3D is cool, although only one station (ESPN) is available to me at this time through Verizon FiOS. Even though you need special glasses to view 3D, they're not like the red and blue [or green] cheapo cardboard and plastic glasses that most of us are used to seeing. They're more like regular glasses and are comfortable to wear. The remote control's keys are well laid out and can be back lighted at night (a pleasing red color) if you so desire.
Well... that's about it. Obviously I'm pleased with my purchase and would have no problem recommending this fairly large-screen plasma TV to anyone who is looking for a quality unit!
Everything that they described. Great picture quality. A lot features that I was looking for and at a very reasonable price. Remote features are easy to operate and very simple to function. I have not watched any 3d on this unit yet because I have no 3d glasses, I can not wait to see these features. I would deffenately recommend this tv.
