Panasonic has revealed one of their most interesting and clever technology-based TV set TH-55CX700D which is a 55-inch TV. Well, quite surprisingly the TV is quite well features. Thus, today we are all set to put forward our opinion about this Panasonic TH-55CX700D and decide whether the TV is worth the investment or not.
- 55-inch 4k Ultra HD
- Voice Interaction System
- Quad Core Processor
- Dimensions (W x H x D) (with stand) 9 x 76.8 x 23.5 cm
Panasonic TH-55CX700D is a very sleek, elegant and chic looking TV that is sure to add an edge to your drawing room. It has gun-metal dark grey bodywork which definitely looks quite luxurious and smooth for the amount that you pay. However, the design is nothing different from TVs of other brands. It has a rectangular arch-shaped kind of a stand which you can use to keep the TV on a stand if not hanging it on the wall. The brand name is written at the bottom right in the middle. The dimension with stand is 123.9 x 76.8 x 23.5 cm along with the 55-inch screen. When viewed from the front, the screen almost looks like its floating in the air when hanged on the hall. Overall, the design of the TV is quite classy but not something that most of us has not seen before.
Well, we will start our review by focussing on the picture and the video quality of the TV as a picture is the first that should be attracting an individual to get his/her hands on the TV. We cannot deny the fact that the picture quality of the TV is stunning owing to some of the great features with which the set is infused. It is 4K Ultra HD TV with a resolution of 3840×2160 which does the work of presenting a crystal clear picture quality when compared to other normal HD TVs. We literally felt like the picture was coming to life rather than simply watching a TV. When we adjusted the brightness and the colour intensity of the TV, we did not see much change in the picture quality which we quite liked as well. With Quad Core Pro Engine being infused in this set, one can easily spot every small detail in a particular scene.
When watched the TV from an angle, like from the sides we were quite impressed as the picture did not appear greyish or distorted which we had earlier observed in Samsung TV. Well, thanks to IPS LED Super Bright Plus, a technology which simply makes the picture as well as the video quality way more crisp and vibrant, even when we watched from an angle. It has been done by putting high efficiency LED lights behind which an exceptionally transmissive panel.
Now, comes the most unique feature of the Panasonic TV which is called the HexaCroma Drive which uses 6 Colour Reproduction and advanced processing to allow the viewers to experience a picture quality with rich colour naturally. It makes the picture quality automatically flawless and worth gazing at. No wonder our team was quite mesmerised by the jaw-dropping picture quality that Panasonic TH-55CX700D has to offer to their users. Thus, as far as the picture quality is concerned our team was completely impressed by it. Even when we played a video, be it in slow motion, normal motion or fast motion, we did not notice any disturbance or glitch and the video played quite smoothly.
Next, we, of course, turned our ears to check the sound quality of this set. A TV set with a good sound quality is yet another important feature of a good quality TV. Well, firstly there are two full range speakers that come well fitted with the TV. The quality of the speaker is pretty good with rich bass which offers clear frequency sound. The speaker output is 20W in total (10Wx2). There are four types of sound mode namely Standard, Music, Ambience and User with a VR- Audio True Surround mode. Our Team was actually quite impressed with the sound quality as well which had evenly spread in a medium size room. As we were watching a movie, we could actually hear each and every dialogue clearly. However, if you have a really big room then you can consider installing a better audio system for a better result.
- 4K Ultra HD which works at delivering the picture resolution which is four times more better than that of normal HD TV.
- IPS LED Superior Bright Plus for a brighter picture quality which can also be viewed from different angles.
- HexaCroma Drive which is the most unique feature in this TV allows the viewers to experience a picture quality with a higher level of colour vibrancy naturally, without much adjustment.
- My Home Screen 2.0 backed by Firefox OS which makes it easy to access any content like apps, videos or any channel with intuitive operation. You can simply tell the TV want you to want it to do.
- Info Frame which acts as a quick access to useful information like weather, time or any useful TV programme, etc. As soon as you will turn on the TV, information that is useful to you will be displayed automatically.
The connectivity department of Panasonic TH-55CX700D is quite easy. There is 3 USB port at the side of the TV and 1 LAN port back portion of the device. You can easily connect your USB memory stick to watch your favourite stored content on a larger screen. Apart from that, you can easily share Smartphone and tablet contents on your TV screen; thanks to Quad Core Pro which is used to analyse and process Beyond Smart functions. It holds a premium place in the TV industry as it enables easy sharing of contents from phone to TV; smooth playing of internet video playback and start-up and use of apps. However, there is no provision of sharing contents from the SD card to the TV which we felt a minor drawback in this case.
