TC-P55ST60 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great television This is a fantastic television I'm shocked at how great the 3d is. I didn't buy the tv for the 3d, I decided to try it out and wow! I'm impressed you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best TV I've Ever Had or Viewed This TV is amazing. The picture is gorgeous! Colours are crisp and vibrant, skin hues lifelike and black levels are deep, deep, deep. The set was easy to set up and I modified the settings according to settings on CNet. Contrary to other reviewers, I have had absolutely no problems with image retention. I''ve used the 3D function and it was fine. The smart connection works well and I watch Netflix on the set and I've used the swap function to move photos from my IPhone to the TV. Watching movies and sports events is fantastic! Feels like you are almost in the building. Overall, this plasma set has met, and surpassed my expectations. Very happy!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not support MKV I have had this TV for 6 or 7 months now. The picture is excellent. However, the DNLA media player is difficult to configure and has very limited codec options. It will NOT play .MKV files even though it says they are supported. Support was no help. I am hoping they will update their codecs but nothing so far. If I want to watch a .mkv movie, I have to convert it to MP4 format which is a huge pain. I would use this TV a lot more but have to watch all my programs on a TV that supports my media files which does not have the picture quality. Disappointed...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Really disappointed I researched this TV thoroughly before purchasing and was impressed with the claims of superior picture quality for the money, but I should have paid more attention to the reports of image retention. The first 100 hours of use were full screen slides, the next 200 hours I avoided any source with static logos. After 300 hours of use I watched a baseball game for a couple of hours and experienced severe image retention. The Fox Sports and Cardinal's logos were distractingly visible on any light color background from my viewing position 12' away and lasted for days as I alternately used the built in screen wipe and Disney's WOW pixel flipper to lessen them. Any time I watch something with a static logo for a couple hours it takes days of work to make them less noticeable. The picture is great, but hardly worth the effort to keep the screen free from image retention.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Careful...Screen burn very easily!! I bought this Tv after doing reserchfor a while. I had an older Panasonic plasma that had an A-board malfuntion. The pic on this thing is great. Only problem is if you watch normal TV your in for trouble. Since almost all TV stations have logos or steady banners your at serious risk for image burn in. I know all the things people say about image retention versus burn in. I was watching HLN for a few weeks, just during the day and watched movies the rest of the time. I broke the TV in for 200 hours using the zoom mode and only having movies play. Anyhow I noticed the HLN logo in the bottom left of the screen when a white screen was displayed. The pixel orbiter was always on from the beginiing. I used to scrooling bar...didnt work. Watched plenty of regular tv, mostly movies for days and days. Now its still there, burned into my screen. Ive always owned plasmas because they have the best picture quality. I know if I contact panasonic they will tell me "oh well sorry thats not covered." So even after all these years of technology you still have a very very very good chance of screen burn not just image retention. I would seriously consider this before purchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waited I've waited a long time to purchase a plasma. This set is awesome, could not be happier. Wireless works great. Picture is great. AWESOME!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great TV The pictures on this site do not do justice for how nice this TV looks on the wall, I was so torn between waiting for the VT60 or buying the ST60. I can't imagine needing a better TV then this. The picture / and features are unbelievable, As a former shameful LED consumer, I hope panny keeps producing plasmas.

  • 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.
