    Hi,
    Before we get review on here I've just found Polish forum which has 50ST60 for a review. Reviewer posted first photos side by side with 50VT50. Difference seems to be huge :eek:

    Full review on hdtv.com.pl is expected to be on line soon. In 2 weeks time they'll get for a review 50ZT60 and 50VT60 in just couple of days!

    Just have a look:
    http://www.hdtv.com.pl/forum/newsy/...onica-50st60-prosze-o-pytania-do-testu-3.html

    P.S I'd suggest to link here reviews if you find any before we start official thread.

    I hope reviews are more accurate this time and tell us the truth. A lot of reviews missed key issues as listed below. I also hope Panasonic have addressed these issues and not just put a pretty new frame over 2012 tech as they said the 60 seriese essentially will be this year...


    Line bleed
    Buzzing
    50hz bugs
    Dynamic false contouring
    colour banding
    Vertical banding
    Motion judder seen on some broadcast material other TVs don't display. (50 hz bugs)
    Elevated Black levels on Professional modes
    Capped Contrast (light output) on professional and cinema modes
    Poor black levels on 3D modes
    Low resistance to Image retention
    Better white balance.. 50s all had a green push / look

    The VT50 on the left and ST60 on the right apparently, and there is no way in a million years there's that much difference in black level (and the VT50 black level is as bad as that photo makes out), pictures like that wind me up I mean seriously what a load of cobblers :(

    Wow no way is the VT that bad. Load of BS.

    Black level just isn't important as the other issues they still need to address.

    What's the point of black level if the screen is dull or the pictures you watch are full of errors etc.

    Yes it's ********. Look at the blue ring beneath the tv. Not the same brightness on both pics.

    I cannot believe that there is so much difference in black level but reviewer keeps saying that he checked every single mode from THX to PROF. and black is deeper in VT60. Personaly I think that in VT50 brightness is set much higher than it is in VT60. Anyway, by the end of March we get full review on here.

    Can't believe they is no reviews in yet from the big boys. The tv is available to buy. I'm wearing out my refresh key.
