Panasonic TC-P55ST30

Panasonic recently released the TC-P55ST30 ($1,799 direct), a 55-inch plasma 3D HDTV sporting a 1,920 by 1,080 video resolution and a 600Hz sub-field drive. This model also comes with several web-enabled Viera features and can display 3D-compatible photos in three dimensions.

Panasonic TC-P55ST30 Design and Features

Again, this model’s design doesn’t differ too much from its smaller counterparts. The plasma screen is encased in a thin, glossy black bezel, all of which sits on a stand that can swivel 15 degrees. A speaker bar lines the bottom of this HDTV, though it’s seemingly invisible. Three HDMI inputs, one composite, component and digital audio input each can be found behind the screen. You’ll also find wo USB 2.0 ports, an ethernet port and an integrated ATSC TV tuner.

The Panasonic TC-P55ST30 features other performance enhancements than a 600Hz sub-field drive. For instance, this model comes with an Infinite Black 2 contrast ratio for sharper images and a 3D 24p cinema smoother to reduce motion blur in 3D content.
