For a sub £400 TV this is a good buy, the picture could be sharper and the sound better but overall good value for money. Lots of apps and other features to keep you happy, the Netflix button on the remote is a nice touch. I would have given it more stars if the picture was a little better when watching live sport.
I really like this TV. This is our (partner and I) first UHD television and we love it. The sound quality is good (obviously not external speaker system quality, but we don't miss the external speakers when we are watching anything but loud, action films); the picture quality is great and noticeably handles UHD television content really well, I think; and the unit itself looks very good, nice and sleek. In shopping for this television, I just did online research, rather than going into stores and looking at actual TV units, so I can't comment on how this TV compares in the 'real world' to other televisions. However, we have not been disappointed. For the price, simplicity of set-up, functionality (e.g. in-built Netflix app which is really good to use!), the built-in WiFi which we've never experienced a drop-out/signal loss yet, the sound output...I could go on. Very happy with the television.
An excellent piece of kit, which seeks to emulate a touch-screen facility with cursor select - that makes it a bit tedious to communicate with in dialogue, though it makes guesses on the user's objective to quicken the dialogue.
The odd supports quite far apart make it hard to position over a DVD or sound box. That said, the screen resolution is excellent and it's the usual Panasonic quality. Not sure I like the latest Freeview guide though. Good value at the price. I bought this to replace an 8 year old defunct Panasonic, which, following the arrival of the replacement, promptly revived!
Panasonic TX-40EX600B 40-Inch 800 Hz Widescreen (4K) Had this a few months. Main positives : HDR gives a very good quality picture Can record directly to an external hard disk (but not USB stick) - which will be reformatted to meet the DRM requirements
Only niggle is that the TV guide used for selecting programs to record has no +/- 24 hours or series record feature (so far as I know)
Really good quality picture and excellent value for money. Only disadvantage was the ‘feet’ which were at the very outside corners and then curved outwards, thus needing a very wide base. It did not fit on any table I have, so I had to buy a universal stand to fit the centre of television. Unnecessary additional expense - bad design. That apart, now I have the stand, very pleased with TV.
