                This is my first flat panel television and after much reading of reviews for both LCD and plasma I decided on the Panasonic Viera TC-P55ST50. I am glad I did!

The color accuracy of the TV is astounding (I've never seen purp...

                    I bought my ST50 about 7 months ago and have been extremely pleased with the TV, especially for the price. Coming from an older 2007 model Panasonic plasma, the first thing that caught my eye was the drastic improvement in black level. The black are DEEP, and in a completely dark room, just about blend in with the bezel around the TV in pillarboxed movies. This while still maintaining a bright enough picture for use in rooms with a good amount of ambient light as in my room during the day. Ther...
