Panasonic TX-55CX802

Read full Panasonic TX-55CX802 review

Key features:

  • 55-inch LED TV
  • 4K UHD resolution
  • HDR compatible
Once again Panasonic manages to provide one of the best and most uniform images you can experience on a TV. The flat screen is immersive and nuanced and very hard to beat at the price - it can be found for less than £2000.

Panasonic’s Firefox OS is also excellent and works brilliantly with the remote and will be HDR compatible when a firmware update is released.

If you’re thinking of buying this TV you need to have a large piece of furniture for the stand as it’s not adjustable and it’s a little stingy on HDMI ports – there’s just three where four tends to be the going number.

My vote would go to the Curry's exclusive PANASONIC
VIERA TX-40CX700B+.

A fantastic 40" 4K tv. It has a Firefox interface which is quick and supports Netflix and Amazon in Ultra HD.

I mostly use mine as a 4K PC monitor as it supports 4K over HDMI 2.0 at 60hz and 444 chroma. I tried many monitors including the newer G-sync 144 hz models and nothing compares to the Panasonic's image quality and colours. Input lag is 25ms using Leo Bodner test, as I am not a competative gamer this is fast enough for me.

I have paired mine with 2 x Evga GTX 980 ti classified cards and at 4K 60fps gaming has a new lease of life. I now couldn't go back to anything less than 4k.

It is easily the best television/monitor I have ever owned and I managed to pick mine up for just over £500 with a 5 year Panasonic warranty.

Samsung UE48JU7500 - 'a severe amount of motion blur' and you score it 9/10?

Nobody talks about customer service or warranty's? What good as a phone, if it dies before the warranty is up and stuff like this : http://globalnews.ca/news/1026... happens? Samsung has even paid cnet to do new reviews on products they already have done so on : http://www.businessinsider.com... and then do stuff like this http://www.idownloadblog.com/2... and this http://www.businessinsider.com... . Simply Google, Samsung Customer Service Reviews....The warranty of a TV and customer service, should matter as much, if not more, than the capabilities. I know from experience.

Excellent point.

An unbiased review of Customer Services is long overdue.

I would concur with your appraisal. I recently picked up the Panasonic TX-60CX740E and has great picture quality. Previously had a Panasonic Plasma, but power surge destroyed it.

Before making the purchase, I compared it to several Samsung models including the JS7200, JU7500, and JS8500. In my opinion the Panny came on top. The picture quality is more accurate than the Samsung models and very little motion blur if any.

I would recommend the CX740 or another model in the same range.
