TC-P50ST30 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great TV owned this for about 6 years and love it. I went with this TV for the black levels and have not been disappointed. I cant remark on the 3d because I don't use it but the 2d quality is great. Only knock I have is the wireless thing that came with it was not impressive so I have a Roku for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2011 P50ST30 I bought a 2011 P50ST30 at the end of December and I am very happy wih it 3 months later. There are times when the 2D picture has a 3D quality about that is awesome. The Audio for watching cable TV is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't ask for more. Easily the best bang for your buck. Picture quality is amazing. (E.G.: Avatar in 3D is hands down best picture quality I have ever seen hands down.) Once you calibrate this tv, it is second to none. This is my first panny and if they all have picture quality this good, I will never go to another company as features aren't above and beyond but that would only increase the price. Only negative comment would be that I have had several problems with my Viera Cast. It can never connect to my Wifi and when it does, it runs extremely slow. I don't know if it's my tv or viera cast in general. This isn't a big problem seeing that I would never use it anyway, but all other features work perfect. Overall I wanted the best picture quality offered within a reasonable price and this panny does just that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from TV This is a great tv. The picture quality is fantastic. I recommend this television to anyone that will listen because you have not met true 3D tv until you have this set. This is the 3rd tv that I have from Panasonic and I have not been disappointed at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best just got better I purchased this TV mostly to play games on but I do watch cable and movies on it and so far the picture quality of the new plasma screens with the infinite 2 panel are just plain unreal. there is almost no glare like on plasmas of old. and the picture quality of this tv blows all others out of the water, the smooth images of the 600hz refresh rate just plain destroys any LCD or LED backlit screen on the market. If you are on the fence about LCD or Plasma, look no further this is by far the best quality TV I have ever seen. As for the reports of 'flickering' that is due to panasonic's C.A.T.S. system in all of their plasma TVs. All you need to do Is turn it off from the settings menu and manually change the brightness of your tv.

  • I can access other Apps on my TV, but cannot access Netflix. How can I fix this?
    Symptoms:
    • When the Netflix app is selected, the Netflix splash screen appears, then Netflix closes and returns to the VIERA Cast home screen, Network Services screen, or HOME screen.
    • When the Netflix app is selected, "Unable to Connect to Netflix. Please Try Again Later" is displayed
    • Netflix can be accessed, but when a title is selected, "Unable to Play This Title Right Now. Please Try Again Later" is displayed.
    • Netflix can be accessed, a title can be selected, but during playback the picture blanks out, buffers, or freezes frequently.

    Additional Information:
    • Network applications on Panasonic products are only accessible on networks with high speed internet access.

    Suggested Solution:
    • Power the Netflix ready device on and allow at least 90 seconds for it to connect to the network before performing a Connection Test.
    • Once the Connection Test has passed, attempt to open the Netflix application. If the Netflix application fails to open, manually change the Primary DNS settings to 8.8.8.8 and the Secondary DNS to 8.8.4.4. If there is only one DNS setting available, change it to 8.8.8.8 (click here for a TV network troubleshooting tutorial.)
    • Once the DNS has been changed, perform another Connection Test.
    • Once the Connection Test has passed, attempt to open the Netflix application.
    • If none of your applications can be accessed, unplug the power cord of your modem or router for at least 10 seconds.This will reboot your modem or router.
    • If the Netflix application still fails to open, try another network application. If other applications function properly but Netflix does not click here for Netflix Help Center or call Netflix customer support at 1-866-716-0414.

  • The power light on the TV is on steady, but I do not have a picture, sound or both?
    This could be caused by a few factors:

    First check to ensure your TV is selected to the correct input (Source). If you are watching cable or satellite, following the cable from that device to the back of your TV.
    If it is connected to antenna, HDMI 1/2/3, component or video you must also have the TV input select to match that connection. On the remote push the input button to check what source is selected on your TV.
    Very important, you must ensure your cable box or satellite unit is turned on.
    On some cable and satellite boxes, you may get audio with no picture if the box is turned off. If this does not resolve your issue, you may require service.
