Panasonic TX-49EX600B 49-Inch 800 Hz Widescreen 4K Ultra HD HDR Smart LED TV : fantastic tv hdr for ps4 pro


Looks great except for the banding in the dark colours. Why oh why do all modern tvs have such dreadful banding?. My three year old 1080p laptop screen doesn’t do it so why do all new tvs do it?. Its very frustrating to watch.

I was warned not to buy a tv off amazon as many arrive damaged apparently. This one arrived with packaging and tv fully in tact. Love the tv with deep colours, lot’s of online connectivity. Only a few months old at the moment but so far no problems.

When i first got it there was a fault with the screen but amazon sent me a replacement soon afterwards. It’s a good television no problems so far.

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. I bought this to replace an 8 year old defunct panasonic, which, following the arrival of the replacement, promptly revived.

This is a really nice tv , the only problem i have is its contains less apps and no android other than that its amazing.

Great telly and wonderful picture quality as ever from panasonic. Smart features work very well. If i had to add a balancing statement i would say that the programme guide hangs sometimes but it can be worked around. All in all for the money, it’s excellent.

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.

Allays buy panosonic never have anytrouble with the television great.

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.

Bought this to replace an 8 year old sony 32″ tv in our lounge. The picture is absolutely stunning. A massive improvement on our old sony. We are using freeview hd and apple tv mk2 hd as our source. Nice simple remote control with easy to find and use smart tv features. Tried a bit of uhd via the bbc iplayer sample and it is absolutely amazing. Sound is via an optical output to a yamaha srt-1000 sound base which sits below and behind the tv as the feet are too far apart to sit on top of the sound base. To get a beautifu picture, on a uhd capable, smart tv for under £600 is incredible. Only down side is that feet are too far apart: the tv won’t sit on the soundbase.

But, from time to time the picture on bbc iplayer is dim and is hard to recover to normal brightness. I have corresponded with both bbc iplayer and with panasonic, and neither have been able to provide a solution, which i find very disappointing. If i plug in an amazon firestick there is no problem, nor does the problem exist with any othet catch-up station. It may be worth thinking about other makes.

Very good tv very easy to set up and am very pleased with it so far.

Image is excellent and the ui for using apps etc is also easy to fathom. My only small beef, was the challenge of turning off motion smoothing, which tends to make your favourite film, look like a soap opera. However, by doing a spot of research and turning the tv to real cinematic in the picture setting, it worked fine.

Fantastic television with actually good speakers behind it. Picture quality is stunning and app functionality is brilliant.

Great tv, all i expected, pity my area do not transmit in hd.

It’s performance is quite good so far and the functions i have tested have been great, nice piece.

Superb menu system, great design, speakers and headphones independent so that’s good. I am a photographer and am finding it hard to get the picture look and feel on most of the channels after 10 years with a superb panasonic plasma. (maybe some advice from other users) i have the same problem shooting video myself and getting the look i want from all scenes. Great for connecting a hard drive to the usb and seeing the quality of my down sampled 4k videos. Wi fi easy to set up and amazon prime works a treat with superb image quality. So all in all a typical top class panasonic product and hopefully in time with maybe a bit of advice from others i will get to grips with picture adjustments. Like getting comfortable in a new car maybe?further on. Having now had the tv for some time, and fiddling with the picture controls i have to say that i am finding the image quality and sound superb. The menu system is superb and the quality of hd is great.

The stand for table top is either end of the tv not centre.

We had thought about going for the top-of-the-range 50′ one with dual tuners, but to be honest the difference isn’t worth £300. What we’ve found with this tv is the colour is natural and lifelike – unlike some of the sansung and lg which appear way too vivid, bright and overblown. You want grass to look like grass, not like a snooker table. Setup was a cinch, and it it connects perfectly to the internet. Setting up the 4od, demand 5, iplayer and so-on is a bit of a trial, haveing to find passwords and so-on, but you only have to do it once. All in all an excellent set and the 4k (with a good uhd movie from amazon or netflix) is absolutely stunning.

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.

Bought this to replace a 5 year old lg ‘smart’ tv and the difference is striking. While it may just be the advancement in technology the load speed and connectivity to lan or wifi is almost instant with the panasonic. Set-up was easy with clear on screen instructions as well as a helpful introduction to the features available. Being able to pin anything to the home screen is really useful whether its your favorite tv channel, app or web page. The tv guide is easy to use and clear to read and has the channel you’re watching still running in the corner which is always good when your partner decides they don’t like what you’re watching but take 20 minutes deciding what they do want to watchpicture quality is excellent especially when watching in 4k and i’ve not witness any screen lag as yet. Colour looks to be very natural with good contrast but not overly vibrant or exaggerated colours. The only issue and the reason for 4 stars not 5 is the sound from the standard speakers. We have chosen to wall mount the tv and the sound on standard settings seemed as though it was coming out of a bucket. We tried all the default setting but had to spend time adjusting the equalisers before getting a sound we were happy with. We will probably look at getting separate speakers or a sound bar to further improve this.

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. 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. Very happy with the television.

      1. 1.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing
        This was my first 4k tv, and i tried hard to love it. The setup was easy, the picture quality was pretty good at first impression. Unfortunately, the screen suffered with terrible clouding and light bleeding. Dark scenes were an absolute pain to watch, and i felt less immersed in my media and games as the clouding was very distracting. The lcd also had terrible grey uniformity and so sports and games had the distracting dirty screen effect. The tv was hooked up to a av reciever with 4k passthrough and to a computer, there was no hdr. I also found the ui of the tv very slow. I found this all very disappointing but ignored it until. At first, the tv would randomly and sporadically not turn on completely, leaving me with an unresponsive tv.

    1. 4.0 out of 5 stars What to look for and why?
      There is so much jargon and misinformation written about tvs that i thought i should write a review to help people make an informed choice when purchasing a tv. Here is what to look for and why. I will centre my review around picture quality. Debating the sound quality of inbuilt tv speakers which are about one inch thick is like discussing whether you would rather be punched by mike tyson or george foreman. Both are going to be unpleasant so what is the point?if you are interested in sound quality, connect your tv to your hifi system via the tv’s optical output. If your hifi does not accept digital inputs then purchase a fiio d03k dac from amazon for £22. You won’t get a better dac for less than £100. If you can’t connect your hifi to your tv, then purchase a sound bar from a decent hifi brand such as q acoustics or better still active speakers such as the q acoustics bt3’s or ruark mr1s. Also, i won’t waste time describing the smart features of a tv when you can buy an amazon fire stick with alexa voice control for £25 in the sales. It is comfortably the fastest, most intuitive, most comprehensive smart interface widely available and it comes with voice activation and alexa.

    The first impression from my family members are wow. The picture quality is so sharp and the screen is huge as compared to our old samsung 32″ hd smart led tv. It’s so crystal clear, bright and colours are deep and rich, as if it’s real. Stylish looking, easy to set up and is lighter than it looks, lighter than those old led hd tvs. Delivery was fast, received 3 days after purchase, and arrived in good condition.
