Panasonic TX-58AX802B TV – Really good picture – why we chose this over other brands.


Bought one of these at the end of 2014 (not from amazon) and it’s really a very good tv. Played ultrahd content from netflix during our free trial over christmas. Have not managed to get ultrahd from amazon prime (yet). Ultrahd demo videos are simply stunning. Normal bluray upscales really well (automata is very good). Like some of the smart tv features, but probably use about 10% of them :-(i don’t normally post reviews online, but did here to counter the stupid 1 star review which amazon should really remove.

The tv is great, with plenty of preset options. I’m not particularly impressed with the the dual freesat tuners. To get the benefit of both you have to purchase a separate usb hard drive, which isn’t a problem (if you can source one and afford the additional cost). There are 2 tv guides; one from freesat and one from panasonic. The freesat guide does not support programme recording at all (freesat got shirty with me when i asked about it lol). The panasonic guide only supports single program advance recording. No series link or ability to manually program repeat recordings on particular days or weekly.

I bought this refurbished from panasonic for £800 in august 2015. It is a fantastic tv if you can get it for a similar price. The picture is bright and colourful, blacks are very deep as well. The apps, for the most part, are fast and responsive. It looks very smart and the remotes are high quality as well, lasting very well. The main remote is also backlit and this can be turned off. Sound is average but tv speakers aren’t the best anymore so i’d recommend a panasonic sound plate to pair it with. Makes a huge difference and it links with the set so comes in with one button and adjusted with tv remote. I’d have given 4 stars, but the one issue is that in the centre screen, sometimes you see backlighting on deep blacks. It’s hard to pin point why as it is only on some content, ie netflix for me.
