Overall the ST50 didn't maintain as impressive an image with 3D sources, but it was still solid.

I performed a hands-on evaluation of the 55-inch Panasonic TC-P55ST50, but this review also applies to the other screen sizes in the series.

black levels

It's important to remember than the VT30, ST30, and D7000 TVs were aged, causing them to show different black levels than when they were new.
Viera ST50 by c|net (Mar, 2012)
Its black levels are just as deep as the VT30's - and deeper than any other 2011 plasma - its color accuracy and gamma are superb, albeit not quite reference-level, and its bright-room performance is better than we've seen on any plasma TV, ever.
