At A Glance

The Panasonic TC-P60ST30 seems like a good deal for a 60-inch 3D HDTV, but the audio and video quality are both lacking, and the set doesn't come with 3D glasses.

Manufacturer’s Description

Crisp, Clear Moving Pictures:

Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into data, and each frame is virtually displayed in a shorter length of time than in previous 600Hz systems, to create crisp images.

VIERA Connects You to a New World:
