Richard, Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
An excellent picture -- Blurays look pin-sharp and the Freeview HD reception is great too. Having iPlayer built in is a boon, and the TV also integrates well with my Bluray player despite it being a Sony. Top-notch all round.

TV Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The viewing experience has never been so lifelike and compelling as it is with Panasonic’s 3D Technology. The fast switching phosphors used in the Neo Plasma panels and an original light-emitting process minimise crosstalk (double images) to deliver clear 3D images and ensure comfortable viewing. This technology also helps to improve 2D picture quality.
The 600Hz Sub-field Drive* in VIERA plasma TVs teams up with Intelligent Frame Creation Pro technology to deliver smooth, fluid, on-screen motion. By using an intelligent algorithm within the picture processing based on motion detection, the best combination of frames is created to deliver ultra crisp sports, film and game action. *When using Cinema mode
In Neo Plasma models, contrast in brightly lit locations has been improved. Enhancements to the panel and filter help reproduce images with smooth, natural gradation and deep, rich blacks – even when viewed in bright surroundings. In movies, true, deep blacks faithfully convey the intent of the filmmaker, adding power and realism to the viewing experience.
VIERA incorporates technology that analyzes picture information and creates precise supplementary frames. This suppresses the jerky effect seen in movies, so playback is smooth and natural-looking. The distinctive tonal qualities and atmosphere of the movie are preserved.
VIERA Connect allows users to enjoy video and music, sports, games, and a variety of other content in addition to the standard movies and TV programmes on a high-quality large-screen TV through the simple operation of a remote control. The cloud-based Internet service also supports interactive services using applicable equipment as well as an Internet-based shopping function that allows such equipment to be purchased straight from the TV.
The VIERA ST30 Plasma TV series includes a DVB-T2 tuner for Freeview HD providing you with a convenient, subscription free way of watching HD contents like sport, as well as your favourite soaps, dramas and documentaries in full HD glory wherever you are in the UK (Please ensure that Freeview HD coverage is available in your local area before using this TV).
