Panasonic TX-5 5G ZR950

Rating: 4.9

Panasonic TX-5 5G ZR950

Our rating is opened by a model with a OLED – display. This means that the TV does not have LED backlighting – each pixel of its screen emits its own glow. The diagonal of the display is 55 inches. This is the minimum for a modern OLED TV – usually they are even larger. The screen resolution is, as you might guess, 3840×2160 pixels. Of course, HDR support is declared here. It must be admitted that it is on OLED – the display that this technology works best. You will actually see a greatly expanded range of colors.

This model supports all digital TV standards – terrestrial, cable, and satellite. Therefore, you definitely will not need a receiver. However, a rare owner of a Panasonic TX-5 5G ZR950 uses an expensive purchase to watch TV. Better to watch all kinds of online content. There is such an opportunity here, the Japanese manufacturer has not forgotten about Smart TV. You can connect to the router via Wi-Fi or a network cable. Your choice depends on the specific router model – if it does not support the 802.11ac standard, then it is better to use a wired connection.

Such a TV is ideal for playing on it. Modern consoles can be connected to it via four HDMI connectors. There are also three USB ports on the rear panel, mainly used for connecting external drives. There is also an optical audio output. But you will not need it, since the TV's own acoustics are excellent. It consists of four speakers with a total power of 50 watts. But the headphones may well be useful to you. Stock up on wireless ones, because only the built-in Bluetooth module is intended for their connection.

If we talk about functionality, then in this regard, there are no particular complaints about the Panasonic TX-5 5G ZR950. You can only complain about weight. The TV turned out to be as much as 22 kilograms. If you want to hang it on the wall, then call someone else for help. By the way, the stand cannot be called light either – it weighs 5.5 kg.

Advantages

  • Equipped with OLED – display;
  • Implemented support for HDR10 + and Dolby Vision;
  • The picture is displayed in 4K-resolution;
  • A large number of connectors;
  • Yes Bluetooth;
  • All digital TV standards are supported;
  • Wonderful surround sound;
  • There is Smart TV;
  • Light sensor built in.

disadvantages

  • Very high cost;
  • The TV is very heavy;
  • Not everyone will like the operating system;
  • Not the most ergonomic remote control.

Panasonic TX-58GXR700

Rating: 4.8

Panasonic TX-58GXR700

Another TV, the screen of which is capable of boasting 4K resolution. However, the display installed here is made using not the most expensive technology, so the device itself turned out to be relatively cheap. At the same time, in terms of size, the TV will definitely amaze. With a 58-inch screen diagonal, it will not find a place in every room!

As expected, this model has HDR10 + support. This means you will enjoy lifelike colors when viewing related content. Also located here, the screen is capable of boasting an increased frame rate. This is especially noticeable when watching action scenes. Nothing bad can be said about the viewing angles. In a word, there are no complaints about the display!

What kind of content can you watch on this TV? First of all, television will come to mind. In this regard, the device will delight with support for all standards – from DVB-T2 to DVB-S2. You can also connect to this model a flash drive with the movies it contains. You can even connect three external drives – this is exactly the number of built-in USB connectors. But it is much easier to watch content online using certain applications. The interaction with the router is carried out either using a cable or via Wi-Fi. Unfortunately, this is the only wireless module present here. The Japanese manufacturer did not think about Bluetooth, so only wired headphones will be available to the buyer.

The biggest drawback of this TV is its mediocre sound. If you place it in a huge living room, you will definitely feel the weakness of 20-watt acoustics. You will also have to purchase a soundbar, bringing sound to it via an optical audio output. Also, buyers have complaints about Smart TV – the operating system installed here is extremely slow.

Advantages

  • There is Smart TV;
  • Huge size;
  • The image is displayed in 4K resolution;
  • HDR10 + support implemented;
  • Understands all digital TV standards;
  • A large number of connectors;
  • The light sensor is not forgotten.

disadvantages

  • Missing Bluetooth;
  • Not the best remote control;
  • Not everyone will like the operating system;
  • Weak speaker system.

Panasonic TX-49GXR900

Rating: 4.7

Panasonic TX-49GXR900

This TV is already much smaller. But he cannot be called a baby either, because he has a 49-inch screen. The device differs from some competitors with a similar price tag by thin frames painted in silver – they are not striking at all. The TV is also capable of boasting a good frame rate – in action scenes, it shows itself slightly better than the models reviewed in this review.

As you might guess, the device displays a picture in 4K resolution. If you connect a modern game console, you will also enjoy the HDR10 + effect to your heart's content. It is also activated when watching movies saved in 'heavy' formats. You can view them directly from an external hard drive connected to a TV or router. In total, there are three USB ports on the rear panel of the Panasonic TX-49GXR900. It is difficult to imagine a person for whom this amount will seem insufficient.

Not all owners of this 16-kilogram device use it to watch TV, although such an opportunity is present (all digital TV standards are supported). More often they view online content. To do this, the TV must be connected to the router. This can be done via Wi-Fi or network cable. The first option is preferable, especially if you are going to hang the 'box' on the wall. You can also connect some third-party devices to the TV, for which there are three HDMI jacks. The sound, by the way, is output to two 10-watt speakers. One day, their capabilities will seem small, so the optical audio output will definitely not be superfluous. There is also a headphone jack. But it's better to use the built-in Bluetooth – module for this purpose – with wireless headphones you will be less confined in space.

Advantages

  • Very large size;
  • There is support for HDR10 + and Dolby Vision;
  • Smart TV is present;
  • The screen has 4K resolution;
  • All digital TV standards are supported;
  • A large number of connectors;
  • Not forgotten Bluetooth;
  • Wall mountable.

disadvantages

  • Weak acoustic system;
  • Very heavy weight;
  • Inconvenient typing.

Panasonic TX-40GXR700

Rating: 4.6

Panasonic TX-40GXR700

Another TV with very thin bezels. Like the models discussed above, it is capable of boasting 4K resolution. There is also support for HDR10 +. That is why it is recommended to watch only high-quality content on such a TV!

The diagonal of the screen installed here is 40 inches. Or 102 cm, if we translate this into our usual unit of measurement. Therefore, such a TV can even be placed in the bedroom. Some buyers even put it in the nursery! To watch cartoons, you can use Smart TV here, downloading clients of certain online cinemas. Connection to the router is via Wi-Fi. Or by cable if the router is very close.

Continuing the conversation about connectors, we should note the presence of an optical audio output here. It will come in handy because one day a pair of 10-watt speakers may not seem like enough. There are also three HDMI sockets on the back of the TV, which are needed to connect a game console and other devices. The same number of USB ports is mainly used for viewing content contained on flash drives or external hard drives.

This model has support for all three digital TV standards. Therefore, even a satellite dish does not require an intermediate link in the form of a receiver.

Otherwise, this is a typical medium sized TV. The manufacturer decided not to implement the Bluetooth -module into it, limiting itself to a jack for wired headphones. But he built in a light sensor. However, it cannot be said that it works perfectly – sometimes you still want to make the picture brighter. The Japanese also provided the back panel with wall mounting holes. But what TV does without them now?

Advantages

  • Not particularly high cost;
  • There is Smart TV;
  • The screen has 4K resolution;
  • HDR10 + supported;
  • All digital TV standards are recognized;
  • A large number of connectors.

disadvantages

  • Missing Bluetooth;
  • The speaker system will not suit everyone;
  • Standard refresh rate;
  • The viewing angles cannot be called maximum;
  • The glossy screen is highly reflective in the sun;
  • Can't record television.

Panasonic TX-43GR300

Rating: 4.5

Panasonic TX-43GR300

Are you still satisfied with the resolution Full HD? Are you looking for a large TV for your kid's room? In both of these cases, you can consider buying a Panasonic TX-43GR300. The resolution of its 43-inch screen is 1920×1080 pixels, which is quite enough for comfortable viewing, for example, cartoons.

This model was created mainly for connecting a television antenna. For this, support for the DVB-T2 and DVB-C standards is implemented here. Unfortunately, the creators forgot about the 'satellite'. This means that the satellite dish will have to be connected through the receiver.

Also Panasonic TX-43GR300 is capable of playing content contained on an external hard drive or flash drive. There are two USB connectors for their connection. It remains to be regretted that there is no Smart TV here. This means that to view all kinds of online cinemas, you will need an appropriate set-top box. I am glad that there will be no problems with this – you can connect it to three HDMI connectors, and a game console, and anything else.

Otherwise, this is a typical 7kg TV that some people would call outdated. It outputs sound to standard speakers, so you will have to forget about its depth and good bass. But on the other hand, this is one of the cheapest models among those with a 43-inch screen! And the lack of Smart TV partly even plays a plus – the interface will definitely not slow down.

Advantages

  • Large screen sizes;
  • Maximum viewing angles;
  • Decent number of HDMI and USB connectors;
  • Relatively light weight;
  • The price tag is not particularly high;
  • Convenient remote control.

disadvantages

  • Satellite standard digital TV is not supported;
  • Weak acoustics;
  • There is no Smart TV;
  • Permission is only Full HD.

Panasonic TX-32GR300

Rating: 4.4

Panasonic TX-32GR300

Our selection ends with a model that should only be bought on a very limited budget. However, a TV with a 32-inch screen, the resolution of which is 1366×768 pixels, may be needed by a rich person – it will come in handy for installation in the kitchen, in the country or in the children's room.

It is curious that even such an inexpensive model differs from some competitors. For example, it boasts an increased screen refresh rate of up to 100 Hz. This means that both games and action scenes in films will look perfect on such a TV. And Panasonic TX-32GR300 has maximum viewing angles. But even some more expensive models cannot boast of this.

Usually, a satellite dish is not connected to such small TVs. In this regard, the Japanese decided not to endow their creation with support for the DVB-S2 standard. It is assumed that either a 'cable' or a terrestrial antenna – indoor or outdoor – will be connected to their device. Digital TV standards DVB-C and DVB-T2 are recognized here without any problems.

It can be assumed that such a TV will receive very modest speakers. However, the manufacturer did not save on this. Of course, to someone, even 16 W will seem an insufficient parameter. But in fact, a 32-inch TV even has enough power reserve. Well, if you still want to connect speakers, then the coaxial audio output will come to the rescue. There is also a headphone jack. There is no wireless method of connecting them here, as you already understood. The function of connecting to a router is also absent here, because the Panasonic TX-32GR300 simply does not have an operating system that supports the installation of certain applications.

Continuing the conversation about connectors, let's get acquainted with the jacks for connecting other image sources. The computer can be connected via VGA. Well, the connection of a game console and a smart console is carried out through a pair of HDMI connectors. You can also insert a flash drive into the TV – a USB port is allocated for this case, which is present here in a single copy.

Otherwise, this is a typical ultra-budget TV. Of some additional functions, only a sleep timer and protection from children can be distinguished here. The weight of this model is 3.9 kg.

Advantages

  • Sounds relatively good;
  • Very light weight;
  • Low cost;
  • Headphone jack is not forgotten;
  • Maximum viewing angles;
  • Increased screen refresh rate.

disadvantages

  • There is no Smart TV;
  • Not a very large number of connectors;
  • Satellite TV standard is not supported;
  • Only HD resolution.

Conclusion

Now you know about which Panasonic TVs you should consider buying. Perhaps we have told about all the best models, especially among those sold in Russia. Now you just have to decide on the amount that you are willing to spend and on the display diagonal.
