Panasonic TX-55DX600B 55-Inch 800 Hz 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV : Good tv, excellent menu system and very fast accessing


After a struggle, i managed to get the supplier to replace it. This one goes black regularly and then recovers after a few seconds. Have changed the leads to hdmi, but makes no difference. Also, i have never seen a sharp hd screen, but that may be because the content has never been high definition.

Good tv, excellent menu system and very fast accessing smart tv options. Picture quality is good although 4k in not as breathtaking as i was expecting.

Excellent providing poor quality sound is assisted with a soundbar.

Absolute clarity, and the apps are easily found and to use, great quality tv. And a bargain at the offer price.

  • Good tv, excellent menu system and very fast accessing
  • First one had a fault. After a struggle,
  • A good quality TV

Panasonic TX-55DX600B 55-Inch 800 Hz 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV with Freeview (2016 Model)

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 4K Ultra HD – Delivers Four Times the Picture Resolution of a Normal HD TV
  • my Home Screen 2.0 – Customisable Home Screen for Easier Content Access
  • Quad Core Pro – Comfortable Operation of Smart Functions with High-Speed Processing
  • Delivers Both Deep Blacks in Dark Scenes and Plenty of Punch in Bright Scenes with Adaptive Backlight Dimming
  • Freetime with Roll Back TV including BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD, Demand 5

Excellent picture/sound – pity about the user manual.

An excellent tv – well worth the money and even cheaper now than when i bought it. Sound is excellent but you have to go into the menu and choose the best for your room / ears. Everything works as it should.

Fabulous picture quality and easy to set up. We got a sound bar to go with it – panasonic again – very pleased with the results.

Amazing to, great picture and quality unit. Hd and 4k content looks totally amazing :).

Ok so its only day 2, but omg. Ok so i moved up form a 720p tv, so im guessing i should be impressed. And tbh the sound quality is very good for a tv this thin. Ok its never b&o quality but it surprised me i must say. I’ve added a panasonic 4k blu ray player and a panasonic sound bar too it to to enhance the whole experience. Im not disappointed one bit.

Good tvs for the price good sound.

Easy to use and easy to set up mounted on the wall with no issues, excellent picture and sound grate value for money.

Liked that the feet were closer together than some so it fits on my stand. Great picture, looked more natural than a curved samsung that i compared it to which would have been my other choice. Can’t comment on the sound as hooked it to an existing sound bar that i had.

It fulfills all i expected from a tv set of that size and price.

Good picture if looking straight at it. Not so good from angle and no scary connections or s.

  1. 1.0 out of 5 stars The Screen is only covered for 18 months by Panasonic
    I bought this tv in october 2016 and it just failed to last two years by a few days. Not the same quality as past panasonic televisions i have owned. Luckily i have a d&g policy on it and it’s going to be replaced free of charge but the whole process of it breaking down being collected, taken away for diagnosis and a new one delivered is 21 days also i had to argue with d&g as they wanted to send me a sony?.

    This review is from : Panasonic TX-55DX600B 55-Inch 800 Hz 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV with Freeview (2016 Model)

    It has it installed as an app but only works after a full factory reset, and then only for a short amount of time then another reset is required.

    1. 3.0 out of 5 stars Good TV but unstable apps
      Relatively easy to use although the freeview programme menu is a bit inflexible (e. Reordering channels, which are chaotically numbered). The real problem has been stability of the apps. The tv often needs resetting (thus resulting in all the passwords having to be re-entered) and iplayer and the red button service stopped working altogether for six months. It took panasonic all this time to issue a firmware update. In the meantime, panasonic’s customer support were no use at all and the shop sent out an engineer to replace the mainboard, an avoidable cost had the true cause been identified. The bbc were also scratching their heads all this time.

  6. 1.0 out of 5 stars An expensive mistake - avoid
    Great picture and good sound. But the tv apps just don’t work – iplayer has only worked once or twice, despite working fine on other devices. All4 rarely works and asks for a password every time, unlike other devices. Amazon app always works so it is not the connection. The only way to attempt to rectify the situation is to do a factory reset, which means retuning and signing in to all the apps again. Panasonic support is non-existent – a loop of avoiding answering the question. I notice that panasonic has ditched firefox os. I also notice that forums are alive with disappointed customers, many of whom previously believed in panasonic quality. I have admitted defeat, bought a £40 amazon tv stick which of course works fine.

  8. 2.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic - not so SMART

    This review is from : Panasonic TX-55DX600B 55-Inch 800 Hz 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV with Freeview (2016 Model)

    This tv is ok but it has one serious fault that cannot be worked around. When the tv cannot connect to the panasonic servers on the internet then the tv will not work. Yes, the tv calls back to panasonic servers, and if there is no response (because the panasonic servers are down) the tv will not work. The servers are intermittently and often down or not responding. When this happens most of the tv functionality will not work – so bbc iplayer, netflix, amazon prime and all other apps/internet services will not work, leaving just over the air tv.

    1. 1.0 out of 5 stars No programme reminder on TV guide awful!!!
      Unable to schedule a programme reminder on tv guide for upcoming programs is such a let down for this tv. Spent £600 on the 49 inch model you would expect it to have this basic function as every other and budget tvs have this option. I emailed the panasonic can team and this was there response. “in response to your enquiry, we want to inform you that the unit was designed without a schedule reminder feature. I appreciate that this response will be disappointing and i apologise that panasonic cannot be of assistance to you on this occasion. Of course, if you should have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact me and i will endeavour to assist” i hope this review helps.

    I feel that the instructions could be a lot better. Had to get a computer expert in to get the tv to connect to my router – the automatic installation did not work – had to manually install address. There are a number of useful answers to installation problems on google.

    The tv is an excellent product with clear sound and picture. I did not receive a hard copy operating manual and the online product is difficult to get your way around. I have a slight issue with the epg facility – i can only scroll one programme at a time which takes for ever to get through the entire list. Does anyone know if there is a facility on the handset to scroll a page at a time?.(i have samsung and sony tvs which have this function and will be surprised and disappointed if panasonic does not.

    1. 5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning picture. You must invest in sound bar and Blu ray player
      Great tv, we replaced our 42 inch lg which was good in its day. Looked up so many 49 inch 4k tv’s and alway has a soft spot for panasonic. It did not disappoint, easy to set up, we run the picture through hdmi with sky box, the quality of the tv itself is great, i understand things are getting cheaper, however i was not disappointed, we also purchased a sound bar, checked many reviews and blu ray player as well. Sound bar was 70tebk and player was dmp700. The feet could have been designed slightly better if i had to give s slight negotive.

    Good picture and features, but the sound quality is terrible, the volume of any music or sound effects means it has to be so turned so low thus making it impossible to hear any dialogue.

      1. 1.0 out of 5 stars Poor image and sound quality. Giant let down.
        Ok, so a lot of reviews are seemingly positive, so i may have had a dud. But here’s my honest review anywayoverview:basically, this “tv” is good at everything, except being a tv. Poor colour, poor image quality, extremely poor viewing angles. Had i not owned, a rather good panasonic before, this experience would put me off ever having one again. Will be returning this under achiver of a tv, and will likely try out and lg or samsung. The good:it has a netflix button on the remote. It’s thinvery easy to set upthe the firefox os is quite good. It has plenty of ports to hook everything up. It can sometimes pull off very nice deep blacks. The colours are rather terrible, and don’t mix well, and wash out to easy off angle. Too much green on the screen will tint any blacks to blue. That’s right, a black man running through a forest is now a blue man. •the viewing angles are, well, it doesn’t really have one.
