From the manufacturer
Vivid 4K HDR images meet Elegance & Flexibility
The EX700 series can deliver amazing 4K HDR pictures from video on-demand services and Ultra HD Blu-ray*. A slim design, with metal frame & stand complements the great picture. Thanks to “Switch Design” you can adjust the stand to work with your furniture or AV accessories.
*Subscription to VOD may be required , Blu-ray player sold separately.
Wide Colour Spectrum
For Colour Accuracy Over a Wide Range.
By using a special Wide Colour Phosphor technology we produce a broader colour range than some. It covers more than 90% of DCI standards. Wide Colour Spectrum TVs give a more subtle, natural toned colour palette which, unlike many LCD TVs, looks authentic in a variety of scenes.
Multi HDR Support
Be ready for High Dynamic Range Movies & TV.
Our 4K TVs support multiple HDR formats, such as HDR10 found on UHD Blu-ray discs and, with the 2017 models, now Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG), the HDR format developed by the BBC and Japan's NHK.
Adjustable Stand - designed to suit any environment.
Wide or narrow, subtle or bold — with four distinct styles in one adjustable stand design, you can change the look of your TV as often as you decorate. Also a great way to fit AV accessories, like a soundbar, under your new TV.
Video On Demand is Already in 4K
Compatible with 4K Ultra HD Netflix*, Amazon Video* & YouTube.
Because 4K internet video streaming is now supported by YouTube, NETFLIX and Amazon Video a wide variety of high-quality content is easily at fingertips. The UHD video signals are processed by our own 4K High-Precision Chroma Processor to achieve crisp, beautiful images.
*Subscription required. Not all content is in 4K & HDR.

All in all, for the money this is an excellent TV and by far the best I've ever owned.
still overall very happy with telly
Build quality is excellent. The feet and frame are metal and the whole set feels solid. Make sure your TV stand is wide enough to take the feet though as they are not moveable (measure 34" from outside of one foot to the other). The feet can be moved to the centre of the 50 inch version of this set. I like the design but wish they would bring back the centre pedestal so the screen can be swivelled without having to move the whole TV.
Picture is not as bright and punchy as the Sony I returned but colours are superb with lovely contrast and the default settings can be adjusted to get a brighter picture. Just turning off the ambient sensor for example made an immediate difference to the brightness. Sound is very good and voices are clear. I found the 'music' setting best.
Can't comment on the 4K image as I have yet to purchase a 4K player but standard Blu-ray images are excellent, smooth motion and good depth to the image. Didn't notice any vertical banding another reviewer has mentioned.
A nice looking TV. Early days yet but no problems so far.
Technology has changed substantially over the past 12 years, SCART is being phased out in favor of HDMI and I wanted to take advantage of catch-up freeview and Amazon Prime other than through a PC. I would however have liked the Panasonic to be a 43" rather than 40", although the screen size is larger than the plasma it is replacing the overall chassis size is smaller.
The tv arrived in a very slim box but well protected. The box contains the tv, stand, remote, batteries operating instructions and warranty registration.
The stand was easy to set up, two configurations are available, curved stand to the front of the screen or curved to the back, I have opted to curved at the back.
The stand is solid and the tv is reassuringly stable, at 12.5kg it feels like the weight is low down.
The tv has a very thin brushed metal bezel, it looks nice, solid and expensive plus it fits it with my vintage hi-fi. It is a shame that Panasonic has not seen fit to make their DVD players/recorders with the same finish.
My set-up is the following:
Now TV Smart Box
Portable USB 3.0 hard drive for pause and rewind of Freeview via the tv tuner.
In order to get to the ports you need to pop off the rear cover, I like that there is plenty of room to funnel the cables from the rear panel which keeps them tidy but I would have preferred that the cover was on hinges rather than it being detachable but is seems sturdy.
The TV setup was somewhat simple, the main stumbling block was setting up wifi, it would not accept my passcode or access via WPS. After a little research online I switched off auto switching between the 2.4 and 5Ghz bands in the router. The tv would still not connect via the passcode but did connect via WPS.
I don’t leave the tv on standby, I switch it off via the power button to the side. Power on is quick enough for me. On start up the tv overlays options over the channel to access the weather, notifications, recommended and DVB, which then fades out and overlays options for quick look, chatchup, search or recommended down the left side. Again this is on screen for seconds before fading away. I have not found a use for these options as yet, they don’t bother me but they may become annoying over time.
I am using an aerial in the loft that is 30 years old. The TV tuner appears to have found all available freeview channels and receives those in HD too (more on that below). I have found no break up, freeze or lose of standard digital free to air non HD channels.
I am using a portable hard drive for the purpose of pausing and rewinding live freeview via the tv's inbuilt tuner. The hard drive needs to be formatted in the tv and enabled to record, the set-up is straight forward with pop-up options to prompt you to enable the drive for this purpose. The Rewind Live TV feature does not store the program permanently, rather it creates a temporary file, however you can also record and store the programme you are watching to the hard drive to be viewed later. You cannot record TV to the hard drive when viewing via a HDMI input such as Sky or Now TV for example. If you change channel you lose the temporary recording of what you were watching and it starts recording your choosen channel. If you lose tv signal you will also lose the temporary recording, it will start again when the signal restarts, I find this a little annoying.
The user interface is simple, intuitive and responsive. Press 'Home' on the remote and you are given three options, Live TV, Apps, and Devices.
Press Live TV and you are taken to your last watched channel, a pop up appears "HDD Rewind Live TV" to confirm recording however, if you happen to lose signal the ability to rewind live tv restarts from the moment that happens.
I have come from a plasma, so to say the picture quality is an improvement would be to understate it however a better screen also seems to show up poor standard definition shows, watching The Big Bang Theory of channel 4 vs Channel 4 HD highlights this. The HD channels are vibrant and detailed.
With action (movies) and sports (Moto GP) I saw no indication of the software/hardware trying to compensate even though it is running at 50Hz @ 1080P, no juddering, pixelation or shadowing is evident. I don't like the sales jargon that any of the manufacturers publish on Hz, they all seem to have their own definitions and it is meaningless, really the only way of knowing is to view the TV with the types of programs you expect to view.
On the subject of high definition, I was watching Countryfile on BBC One HD and on several occasions it would lose signal, this could be the aerial, it could be a poor signal being broadcast or interference however when I later watched Captain America on Channel 4 HD it didn't lose signal once so the jury is out at present however I could imagine this being an issue as I settle in with the TV.
There are plenty of apps available, catch-up services such as iPlayer and Freeview play plus Netflix and Amazon Prime, also access to any recorded TV on your own hard drive and internet browser.
I have used iPlayer, Freeview Play and Amazon Prime. The apps have been responsive with no lag.
I like the ability to change the picture and sound settings, both with presets and custom settings. I find some progammes/films lend themselves to certain setting that do not work well with others, this could be to do with the source rather than the TV. For example the 'Ambient' sound setting on Lord of the Rings via Now TV made the speech volume very low and the action sequences very loud, I found having this set to 'Music' gave a more normalised and consistent sound, however Ocean's 11 works well on the 'Standard' sound setting.
I am finding the same with setting the picture.
There are plenty of setting to customise the tv to my liking with access to control the picture, sound, network and timer as well as setup and help.
Overall sound quality is good, plenty loud enough with the inbuilt speakers. I do have the TV set in a bay which acts to bounce the sound.
It has only been a few days with the tv but so far I am very happy.
