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.

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. The TV is not as sleek as other 4K UHD TVs from other brands like Sony, but the entire look will definitely make your viewing experience good.

Picture Quality

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 tv picture quality

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.

Sound Quality

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.

Features

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.

Connectivity

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.

The exceptional rich color and cracking details with the right hint of brightness is something worth praising about this TV. Also, In terms of connectivity, it has all the standard connectivity options and nothing more can be expected here.

The Bad: In terms of sound quality, we will not say it is bad but it is nothing exceptional like the picture quality. We will rather say the sound quality is decent but we were expecting something better out of this TV if compared with the price. In terms of connectivity, it has all the standard connectivity options and nothing more can be expected here.

The Bottom Line: So, the only turn off as we can see is the sound quality of the TV and it can be a serious issue if you are particular about that.

While all this while, we were completely into reviewing the 4K UHD Smart TVs coming from various brands, today we decided to change our route and review a Full HD LED TV from Panasonic. Of course, 4K UHD TV is the smarter version of this TV, however, let us not rule out the fact that everybody is willing to spend a lot on a TV set. Again, some might not feel the need of all the features which a 4K UHD TV comes with, therefore they will rather prefer investing in a Full HD LED TV.

Today we thought of reviewing Panasonic TH-60C300DX Full HD LED TV which is priced Rs.159900 and has a 60-inch screen. So, what are the specifications of this TV? We shall find it out in the write-up further down.

 

Product Description

  • Connectivity input: 3 HDMI and 2 USB Slot

You can mount it on the wall or make it stand on its silver pedestals on a TV stand. Whatever you choose, the TV is sure to add elegance to your living room. Moreover, the 60-inch size TV screen fits anywhere quite easily which further doubles up the user experience.

 

Picture Quality

The picture of this TV, well, of course, will not be as good as 4K UHD Smart TVs, however, with a resolution of 1920 X1080 and a screen size of 60-inches, the picture quality can be termed as pretty good. Yes, when compared to other HD TVs, the picture quality of this TV is crisp and clear. Thanks to IPS LED technology and 100Hz Backlight Blinking, it gives you even more vibrant picture quality with the right amount of brightness. However, dark scenes might not appear as clear as the coloured scenes which we will term as a downside of maximum HD LED TVs. When viewed from an angle, the picture keeps the potential to appear little bit greyish, however, it is not something that will bother the user.

 

Sound Quality

The Panasonic TH-60C300DX 152 cm (60) Full HD LED Television comes with two Dolby Digital speakers each of 10W which will provide you with rich and booming sound. You can increase or decrease the sound as per your requirement. We also noticed that the sound did not break as we increased the volume, however it did become tad unclear which again can be avoided. Apart from that, the television features Dot Noise Reduction which is responsible to give you a better experience of sound along with visuals. It also has a surround sound feature that will immerse the viewers into a whole new world of experience by surrounding them with the rich sound quality from all the sides. Thus, we are quite happy with the sound quality of this TV as most of the HD TVs do not come with this good sound quality.

 

Features

The TV has quite a few features and we will go through the features in the list below.

  • 100 Hz Backlight Blinking feature brings out each and every detail with a crystal clear clarity.
  • Full HD screen makes TV viewing experience as good as watching it in a theatre along with a decent picture and sound quality.

  • IPS LED technology is responsible for giving you a vibrant and clear picture quality along with the right amount of brightness and exceptional viewing from an angle.
  • In this television, you will also come across many pre-installed games that you can play when not watching movies or cable. Apart from the games, there are several other applications such as sleep timer and internet browsing.
  • As a bonus, the TV also has a Power Saving Mode which will help you in saving an enormous amount of power and money. The standby consumption is 0.5 Watt.

 

Connectivity

Since it is not a smart TV, it lacks connectivity features like easy screening or mirroring which are very common in a 4K UHD TV. Also, you will not find apps to suit your lifestyle. However, the TV has 3 HDMI ports, 2 USB ports, and one PC input. These ports on this Panasonic TH-60C300DX are to allow you to connect it to your laptop or set-top box. It also enables you to connect your USB devices such as pen drive or external hard drives to play movies and other media. You can also carry out your official work and surf the internet on this TV.

Conclusion

Well, the TV has all the important features that a FULL HD LED TV is entitled to have. We are quite happy with the sound quality and have a love-hate relationship with the picture quality. Apart from that, the power saving mode is a bonus which will help you to save a lot of energy and money. However, we do feel that the TV is a bit pricey given the fact that it is a normal HD LED TV and not a Smart TV. If you can send a bit more, you’ll be easily able to by a 4K UHD TV. However, if you feel this TV suits all your needs as an HD TV, then you can go for this TV without any second thought.

Panasonic TH-55CX700D Television

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.

 

Product Description

  • 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

 

Design

image2

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.

 

Picture Quality

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.

 

Sound Quality

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.

 

Features

  • 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.

Connectivity

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.
