We will start the review with the design of Panasonic TH-49CX400DX 4K UHD TV. The design of this TV is nothing special and has a standard 4K UHD LED TV design. Well, of course, the TV set looks quite elegant and will add the much-needed dose of sophistication to the modern interior of your of your living room. Panasonic TH-49CX400DX is a 49 inch full HD display comes with a high definition look with the stands which are placed on the sides of the TV. The stands are quite out of the TV and this is something that we found quite unique in terms of design. The bezels on all sides are quite thin and the one that is placed at the bottom is silver in color. The TV is the usual rectangular in shape and black, made of good quality plastic and has a cabinet which is suave. The rear portion of the TV is also made of plastic which a smooth finish as well.
Next, we focussed on the placing of buttons and other stuff. The power button of the TV is placed on the bottom panel. As per connectivity points are concerned, there are 3 x HDMI and 2 x USB points are available. The TV can also be mounted on the wall if you choose to skip the stands.

Before we start on with the picture quality of this TV, let us say it is quite good compared to the price that you have to pay for it.
Panasonic TH-49CX400DX 4K UHD TV has a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and the vivid visuals come with a 49-inch screen. The picture quality of this TV is quite stunning and will give u the exact feeling of looking out of the window rather than a TV (it is that lifelike). Thanks to IPS LED panel and Dot Noise Reduction feature which makes viewing a thrilling experience on this TV. The IPS panel is responsible to provide high light transmittance along with a wide viewing angle. Also, the LED backlight works by increasing the picture brightness. The Dot Noise Reduction feature further gives a clear picture quality by reducing the dots or the grains in the picture.
Apart from that, we also tested the video quality which we are putting in this section. While we were watching the fast motion videos, we did not see the picture quality breaking or blurry. Rather it displayed a clear video quality which was quite unbelievable from this TV if we compare the price that we have to pay. Also, we did not have to do much adjustment for a clear picture quality like playing with the brightness and the redness of this TV.
Next, we tested the audio quality of this TV. On the whole, the audio quality is good; however, when compared with other 4K UHD TV catering the same price range, the sound quality can become one of the main turn off. The TV comes with two speakers and a Surround Mode sound quality. The speakers have an output of2*8W which was ‘okeish’ for us but nothing great. It will not have a great surrounding impact if you enjoy listening to loud music; however, the sound quality is fine for the small room. Overall, we have are not quite impressed by the sound quality.
Panasonic TH-49CX400DX 4K UHD TVhas quite a few features catering the picture quality. It does not include too many features that will make it stand out in the crowd.
Tease Out Every Detail
Panasonic 4K Ultra HD TV comes with Quad Core Pro Engine which doubles up the game of watching this TV on a huge 49-inch screen with a stunning picture quality. The Quad-Core Pro Engine simply carves out every detail of the picture for a lifelike experience which is way better than a conventional 4K UHD TV.
Choose any Viewing Angle
Thanks to IPS LED panel which has made viewing this TV from any angle a whole new experience. The IPS LED technology has added an edge to the picture quality with the help of LED backlight that helps in increasing the brightness.
Fast Motion the Smoother Way
The 100 Hz Backlight Motion Rate is the reason behind smooth fast motion videos on this TV. Most LCD TVs lack in this context whereby the fast motioned picture breaks or appears blurry. The BMR technology has been infused in this TV to address this particular problem whereby it sequentially turns off the backlight while delivering such images.
Clear and Crisp Image
Lastly, with Dot Noise Reduction feature works furthermore to give you a clear image. This technology reduces the appearance of grains in the picture by detecting the noise and correcting the same for a crisp image quality.
Last but not the least, we are here to talk about the connectivity status of this TV. Well, Panasonic TH-49CX400DX 4K UHD TV has the basic connectivity options as it is not a smart TV which we must keep in mind. It has 3 HDMI and 2 USB ports along with built-in Wi-Fi connection. We especially tested the Wi-Fi connectivity and found that it connected quite easily without any complication.
