Mine does this too on some things like the Directv guide menu, tv menu, etc. Its kinda weird but goes away as soon as I get off the menus.

I've had a 65" ST 60 for about a week now. I used D-nice break in slides and have not yet calibrated.

I immediately noticed a vertical line on the right side of the screen about an inch and a half away from the edge. It is very faint, but once you notice its hard not to see it. Most visible when there is some solid white or grey. Visible using different materials/sources (Blu ray/cable, SD/HD, etc.)
It is not IR, and I don't think its faded or gotten stronger at all over time.

Sounds like this may have been a problem in the past.
Has anyone else noticed this? Anyone hear anything back from Panasonic? Might this go away?

I have a 65" S64, and I too have this vertical line in the exact same spot as yours on the right edge. I googled it, and after scanning through tons of forum posts, it's not specific to any particular model of Panasonic plasma, and it's a result of the manufacturing process. Some sets have it more than others, and Panasonic apparently considers this within manufacturing tolerances.

I only see mine on grey slides and a just barely on a green slide. I will say that I have to REALLY look to notice it, but it is there. Never see it during normal content, so I'm not bothered by it, and I'm sure as hell not going to try to return it and try to win some sort of panel lottery. I feel like I did pretty well to get a panel with minimal buzzing and panel popping, so I'll take my chances with the one I've got.

Did everyone here wait AT LEAST 100 hours before watching black bars content?

I'm past 200 and have yet to watch any black bar content lol. I'm too overly cautious though.

I posted this in the Vizio M series thread as well. (LED)

I know this has probably been covered, but has anybody tried out the M series 65" in a fairly lit room? I heard the 65" has the glossy finish. Also, I was considering the ST60. Would the filtering of the ST60 be enough and be fine in a room such as this? I love my Samsung Plasma (5-6 yo 450 series I believe)I have now but I'm moving into this house and there is much more light in the living room.

Better safe than sorry. biggrin.gif How about on screen logos though?

Another question, when I'm on my PS3, the option for Intelligent Frame creation is disabled. Why?

No and I didn't wait that long to play games either. No IR problems from day one.

Think i'm about to go pick up a 50" ST60.

Does anyone know the black level difference between the ST60 vs the Samsung f8500 or panasonic VT?

I remember the f8500 being like .0018,vt being .0013, but i'm not sure what the ST is

On my GT50, I watched a bluray the first day I got it with black bars, gamed the first week, watched HD channels with logos and never got IR. you just have to vary your content and don't watch in vivid mode and 4:3 content. I don't see it being different for the ST60. People freak out too much. The only IR I saw , was the first week , from the menu , because I played with the settings a lot but it went away in seconds.

You just don't want to risk it after paying out so much. I'll start mixing it up soon.

There are going to be reflected images on any display in your room. The Samsung F8,500 and ZT60 will control them better than any other display that I know about.

Automated blinds (moving bottom to top) might be a good idea in the main part of the room.

You didn't ask, but the best place in the room for a 65" display is the wall to the left of your fireplace. wink.gif

No green blobs or floating blacks with these?

What is "local"? You don't show your location. A month ago Sears had the 60" listed at 1499 - but of course were out of stock in most (not all) stores.

My set measures .0016

Have a 50 inch ST60 and to do my due diligence a friend of mine let me try out his ZT60 in his controlled environment.

He had his set calibrated so when I asked about what he thought about the ST60, he stated that for then money it is the best tv.

Then it got interesting. We loaded my set up and brought it over to his mancave.

The guy has a lot of money as he owns his own cloud Internet company so he graciously paid to get my set calibrated.

When we compared the two, there was NO difference in a dark room and only a very slight difference when he turned up the lights.

He and I were shocked. Especially because I paid get this, 750 bucks for my ST60.

Denseness here.
Wife decided she wanted to use our new "smartTV" to access Facebook. We can't figure out how to do it. We get her account accepted by going online with the computer and entering the code that popped up onscreen. It does seem to ask you to then enter a PIN. It seems to want you to create one. We weren't sure we wanted to do that because we seem to have trouble getting rid of the TV program the DVR is putting out. The TV program is taking up 2/3 of the screen.

The only other App we have tried is Youtube and Netflix. They both worked perfectly. The picture we get from Netflix is outstanding.

Thanks.

Ha, I forgot to say that is where my TV will go. There will be blinds and curtains on those windows.

I have a Comcast DVR to HDMI 1 and a Sony BluRay model 370 (or 390?) to #2.. When I first hooked up the optical Toslink to a sound bar (about 2 weeks ago) - which was 2 weeks after getting the St60 - I thought I imagined the lips not synching with the sound. When I turned on the panel's speaker's at the same time, the sound between the two sources (speakers/soundbar) were slightly out of synch.
I figured I'd wait until wife got back, she was gone for the 3.5 weeks since I got the whole new set up. She hasn't said anything and either I got used to it or it really isn't there. We mainly used the Sony for streaming Netflix - cancelled the disc subscription several months ago. Now that we can access Netflix directly from the panel, the player won't get much use.
Bottom line, we just use the JBL200 soundbar and don't notice any problem.

By the way - I wear Hearing Aids. I have "moderate" hear loss. I wonder if they would create a very slite lag in sound processing. I'll need to check on that!

Is there a way to assign shortcuts to the remote on the "RGYB" colored buttons? What I'd like to do is assign 1 for my cinema setting, 1 for custom, 1 for my zoom settings, and one for like the scroll bar. Is anything like that possible?

Here is what to plug into HDMI 3!!
Announced by Google today for $35. CHROMECAST Available in the next few days from BB, Amazon, and Google Play

http://www.latimes.com/business/technology/la-fi-tn-google-chromecast-rival-apple-tv-20130724,0,993116.story

It requires either ,something called "MHL/HDMI, only newer TVs have that option". Does the ST60 have this? If not, it comes with a cord to connect to a powered USB port. I would assume one or both of the USB ports are pwoered.

Doesn't the Panasonic app already do that?

Can't be done with the TV remote. Unfortunately macros can't really be done with this TV either unless you exit the menus in the same place every time. I had quite a few macros with my old Panny.

The ST60 does not have MHL inputs.

The Chromecast HDMI dongle has a female USB connector on the back and comes with wall-wort power plug and USB cable (according to a photo on another thread about the Chromecast).
