Optimised for Full HD, the Panasonic TX40ES500B is the perfect match for Blu-ray and FHD TV.

Full HD for optimal Blu-ray playback

With Full HD 1080p resolution, this Panasonic makes an ideal match for Blu-ray and FHD gaming consoles. Full HD gives more detail and a more natural picture than standard HD. The Panasonic TX-40ES500B also uses a top quality LED screen with Adaptive Backlight Dimming for superior contrast and realism.

Updated 600 Hz BMR for a smoother response
Updated from a 400 Hz to 600 Hz BMR (Backlight Motion rate) panel, this 40 inch Panasonic TV offers even smoother motion than ever. This means that when watching action movies or sport, the TX40ES500B has the speed and clarity to keep up with the action without motion blur.

Now with Freeview Play for easy access to catch-up TV
This Panasonic also features Freeview Play. This combines catch-up TV, on-demand services and live television to make it easy to watch what you want, when you want. It's free from subscription and compatible with existing broadband services, while BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, All 4 and Demand 5 are available without having to open specific apps, giving effortless scroll-back TV (requires broadband Internet connection with a minimum speed of 2Mbps).

Smart connectivity
When it comes to connecting up, this 40" Panasonic TV has got everything you'd expect from a modern smart TV. Smart connectivity brings together a host of features that make this much more than 'just' a TV, letting you stream video, photos and music from another source, such as your PC, via DLNA.

Built-in apps plus Wi-Fi
Use the app-based browser to view shopping based functions, social media apps and catch-up TV channels. There's also a web browser, letting you surf the web on the big screen via either Ethernet or built-in Wi-Fi.

Now with twin USBs and USB record
The Panasonic ES500B range now comes with twin USB sockets. Matching the twin HDMI sockets, these are handy for plugging in media devices, such as a memory stick for music playback. USB recording is also now standard, meaning you can connect a suitable HDD (Hard Disk Drive) device and record live TV.

Swipe and Share and My Home Screen
The TX40ES500B comes with Swipe and Share, which via the Panasonic app on your smartphone, enables you to stream pictures, videos and music to the TV, wirelessly. My Home Screen lets different users personalise the home screen, for a tailored style.

For a 40" smart TV from a leading brand, switch on to the Panasonic TX40ES500B.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from brilliant picure and easy to operate bought the tv ready for christmas, will know all the features by the festive season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up Needed a new television - the old one died. This 40" Panasonic was very easy to set up straight out of the box. It connected to my WiFi with no fuss. Comes with apps for Netfix, iPlayer etc. Only negative is no SCART plug only HDMI so if I want to play old videos (e.g. family films) using my old VCR I need to work out how - I think a SCART to HDMI adaptor is available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV Bought to replace a Panasonic 32 inch that died. Initially I wasn't as impressed with the picture compared to the old set but I'm used to it now and it does use different technology. Appreciate the bigger sized screen now. Can't comment on sound as using a sound base. Apps work well and set up easy. Viera app on phone can be used to control the telly but I don't use it. Ticks all the boxes for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well pleased! 40" screen was quite a step up from our previous 26" Panasonic but we are enjoying a crisp colourful display which fits easily into the alcove by the fireplace. Free view play gives us plenty of channels with view on demand going back a week while all the TVs apps provide plenty more scope for browsing. This is our first Smart TV and proving to be an excellent choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy peasy Bought this TV as a second TV but it still has many features of more expensive models. I like Panasonic products as they have proved reliable and logical. It was easy to set up and use. Pictures quality in HD is very good and even the sound is acceptable if not as good as using a soundbar or soundbase. The main user doesn't want too many 'fancy' options as she won't use them. However, it's nice to have them at this price. The buying experience was quick, efficient and friendly. Delivered on the day and hour they said it would be and it's easy to set it up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The TV does what it's supposed to do Straight foward to setup, (freeview) wirelessly connected to my BT HH3 router. The speakers are poor, so I use a soundbar. I don't watch the TV much, listen to the radio usually radio-4 or radio-4 extra. There is a screen off setting when listening to the radio, however you have to toggle between radio stations for it to be activated. Connects to BBC Iplayer & Youtube Only watched a few YouTube videos, using the remote control to enter and select YouTube content is hard work. can't see the remote control buttons lasting too long if you are an internet content fan. ( Don't know if the remote control has the same six year guarantee ) Can navigate to shared folders on my Win-7 machine, however it fails to show all video or mp3 files. It has two USB ports. Drives formatted as Fat32 or NTFS containing files mp3 & mp4 seem to function OK. On a scale of 1 to 10 where 1 is 'complete waste of space' and 10 'absolutely fantastic' I give it a 7.
