Engadget Summary

Panasonic's ST60 series is priced well below the company's flagship VT60 and ZT60 models, yet is, as TelevisionInfo.com puts it, "packed to the gills with value." The series, according to HD Guru, boasts "the best overall image of any HDTV we’ve ever reviewed," and "sets a benchmark for HDTV performance with excellent color, high quality signal processing/upconversion, deep inky blacks and detailed motion resolution." FlatPanelsHD also likes the ST60, and calls it "an amazing TV" and says that "Panasonic’s more expensive high-end TVs could very well have one of the toughest competitors in its own ranks with ST60." While some critics found the ST60's smart TV features lacking, that wasn't enough to detract from its picture quality and value. As HD Guru put it, "it's simply a steal."
