Step into the 3D World. The VIERA ST30 Series Full HD 3D Plasmas create an all new viewing experience by putting you inside the action and creating a new world of TV viewing realism. The revolutionary VIERA Full HD 3D technology delivers award-winning realism that pops up from the screen and immerses you in the image. Armed with Infinite Black 2 panel, the VIERA ST30 delivers deep blacks and minimized reflection for bright, crisp image, at improved luminous efficiency and lower power consumption thanks to the new phosphor and new electrode (fish bone) structure. VIERA Connect function connects you to a new world of movies, sports, and other online apps plus free Skype video calls on your VIERA HDTV.

With sleek and elegant design in an attractive package, the VIERA ST30 TV would compliment any decor and light up the home theater system plus your entire living room.

  • newegg FULL HD 3D Infuses Reality into Every Image Panasonic uses Full-HD Frame Sequential technology to create its 3D images. Images recorded in 1920 x 1080 pixels for both the right-eye and the left-eye alternately flash on the screen at the ultra-high rate of 120 frames per second. When you view the screen through active-shutter glasses that open and close each lens in sync with the alternating images, you see breathtaking FULL HD 3D pictures with stunning power and realism.
  • newegg Infinite Black 2 In the new VIERA HDTVs models, contrast in brightly lit locations has been improved. Enhancements to the panel and cells help reproduce images with smooth, natural gradation and deep, rich blacks even when viewed in bright surroundings. In movies, the true, deep blacks faithfully convey the intent of the filmmakers, adding power and realism to the viewing experience.
  • newegg Easily Convert 2D Images into 3D Unique Panasonic technology converts 2D images into high-quality 3D images in real-time. The technology generates a detailed depth effect for each type of image, so the 3D effect is natural and realistic. Use VIERA HDTVs to enjoy Blu-ray movies, DVD movies and even ordinary TV broadcasts in 3D. The Super Resolution function allows images that were converted from 2D to 3D to be displayed in sharp, clear 3D while minimizing double image. 3D images with crisp contours are also produced from 3D broadcasts using the side-by-side method. (When a 2D source is converted to 3D, the 3D effect is slightly less pronounced than with 3D sources.)
  • newegg 24p Cinema Smoother Enjoy naturally flowing 24p films with familiar TV-like quality. In plasma displays, increasing the number of frames creates smoother images. When reproducing images from a 24p film source, VIERA HDTVs 24p cinema smoother function generates smooth, natural-looking images.
  • newegg VIERA Connect & DLNA / Wi-Fi Ready The exciting world of cloud based Internet service (Internet Protocol Television, or IPTV), is available for the entire family to enjoy. Now you can use an intuitive remote control while relaxing in your living room, having a variety of internet content at your fingertips. DLNA / Wi-Fi Ready, the VIERA ST30 HDTV allows you to connect a DLNA-compatible VIERA HDTV and DLNA-compatible AV equipment to your home network, and you can watch movies, listen to music, and view photos from any room in the house. VIERA HDTV's Wi-Fi capability gives you even more layout flexibility.
  • newegg Long Panel Life, Up to 100,000 Hours One important way consumers can protect the environment is by choosing high-quality products and taking care of them so they last for a long time. A high-quality VIERA HDTV can help. Thanks to a newly designed phosphor process and new panel technology, the plasma panels last for up to 100,000 hours before the brightness decreases by half. That's more than 30 years of viewing 8 hours a day.

5 out of 5 eggsfantastic- but be aware

Pros: I got this 46" beast for $6## during new years sale. Unbelievable value. Once you turn it on, it will look dark- go to menu and set it to VIVID, that's the good stuff. This TV is everything you are hoping for in a plasma BUT READ THE CONS

Cons: Models made before August of 2011 have a defect called flucutating brightness- google ST30 fluctuating brightness or look on youtube. There are four numbers in the serial that you can check to see if your TV is affected.

Good news: there is a fix, if you have this problem you can call Panasonic and they send someone to your house to fix it.

I learned all this before purchasing, and decided it was worth the risk for the savings, I was very fortunate and got a model that is newer than august so it already had the fix built in.

Other Thoughts: Fantastic TV, perfectly fills out my large living area

2 out of 5 eggsVery hard on eyes

Pros: Screen is very sharp. Colors are comparable to other Panasonic plasma units. Blacks are very deep. No ghosting or trails when a bright object moves over a dark background. Screen coating is very good at keeping room reflections to a minimum. On-screen setup and menu is generally easy to use. Remote is sturdy and includes a backlight button for night use. Supports both Ethernet and dual-band 802.11n networking. Switching from one digital channel to another is very quick.

Cons: 1) Screen refresh rate [in 2D mode] is only 60Hz, which causes significant eye strain and headaches. 2) Motion smoother often breaks for 1-2 seconds after scene changes in some movies, even when set to "high" mode. 3) Picture brightness seems to "jump" 1-2 seconds after a scene change from very light to very dark. 4) Advanced internet content menu is clunky when using remote. 5) No analog audio out; SPDIF is optical only. 6) No S-Video input.

Other Thoughts: Compared to my older Panasonic plasma displays, this unit has a sharper picture and improved OSD. However, the horizontal refresh rate is horrible; it is like an old cheap VGA monitor. I cannot watch the screen for more than an hour without a raging headache. The frame interpolation ("motion smoother") works so inconsistently that I ended up disabling it. I'm also disappointed that the single legacy video input was composite-only; there is no S-Video input (I had to use my AV receiver to convert S-Video to YPbPr Component). I was also annoyed that the unit only has no coaxial SPDIF outputs; optical SPDIF digital connections are less common (or fewer in number) on many AV receivers. I have not tried the 3D functionality as I have no 3D content.

The refresh rate is a deal-breaker, though. Unless Panasonic has a fix for this, the television is going to be returned.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazig TV & Newegg

Pros: At this price $813.30 delivered this is absolutely the best price for this excellent HDTV that is available ANYWHERE. I had searched all of the retail outlets initially as I was a bit concerned with shipping damage but BB-FYS-VID Only etc were all not able or willing to either order it (kept repeating that 46" is not a size in demand and worst of them all BB wanted to charge me a premium price plus a penalty and delivery fees of $180.00 to ship the item to me directly (would not take into a store thereby eliminating the freight) and were so arrogant that I am done with them forever. The specs on this TV even at regular price of $859.00 make it one of best ever for the dollar. The Infinite black panel is a huge improvement over the standard panel, is DLNA ready, 3D is nice if I ever use it and the overall quality of the picture with the Infinite Black panel removed the last objection I had to plasma. Game motion at the store was hugely improved from my 8 year old Pana Plasma.

Cons: The "only" possible is to include a dedicated computer hookup but as smarter folks have told me that is no longer a necessity as long as I use HDMI from my puter to the TV.

Other Thoughts: Frankly had started to lose a bit of confidence in Newegg as theyhav grown especially due to the adoption of marketing ploys that seem similar to Tiger and other 2nd rate sites but I suppose was inevitable. Shipping costs also seem to have risen dramatically for many items. Overall I still rate Newegg as my #1 choice by far to order materials from.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent value

Pros: picture quality, adjustments, internet

Cons: first one that was received was damaged, no 3d glasses included

Other Thoughts: After contacting Newegg because the first one that was received was damaged, Newegg worked quickly to resolve the problem. When I received the replacement, the tv was easy to set up. You will have to adjust the brightness and color out of the box, as the standard settings are very dark. After the adjustments, the picture looks phenominal. It is very easy to use, the internet connectivity is a breeze, and there are plenty of hookups. I am very happy with this tv.
