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 Great TV. Easy set up. Purchased this to upgrade existing 32 inch Panasonic downstairs. Still in good working order & had least 8 years+. Going in bedroom to replace 19 inch. Highly recommended Panasonic for picture quality,sound & so easy to set this one up. 30 minutes & that included fitting stand & disconnecting existing TV. Menus easy to use. Not tried Apps yet as not had time to read up but I'm sure it will be easy to work out. Enjoying HD quality picture & sound is great for normal viewing. Some reviews mentioned that a sound bar would be needed but I can't see that been required. Very happy with my purchase & the added bonus of 6 year guarantee from Richer Sounds is fantastic. Delivery arrived exactly within time window allocated & delivery drivers were very polite & courteous. Not always the case these days. A welcome change. Will definately buy from Richer Sounds in future & will recommend to Family & friends.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good features but picture quality not good enough Unlesss you view the set exactly square on, skin tones are washed out and cartoon like. I was expecting better as my 10 year old Panasonic Plasma TV had a better picture. Sound quality is average for a flat panel so I bought a small Panasonic sound bar and this integrates really well via the Viera system. Plus points are Freeview Play which is great - very easy to find catch up TV, apps like Netflix and the very low power consumption (A+).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal I purchased this about 3 weeks ago. It was easy to set up as I am not very technical and is just the right size for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this TV on recommendation about 3 weeks ago to replace our 36" Samsung which we'd had a few years and the sound quality had never been great. To tell the truth, we're disappointed in our new Panasonic. The picture is ok but no better than our Samsung, but the most disappointing feature is the sound quality. We have to have the volume level turned up to between 30 and 40 to be able to hear it properly, and it's not because we're hard of hearing, as other people have noticed it too. The only way I can get some small improvement is by turning off the 'virtual surround' feature. It doesn't help that the speakers are at the back of the TV so it's fine if you're sitting behind it! Presumably the idea is that the sound is supposed to bounce off the wall but it's not practical to have the TV against a wall in our living room. I realise that things could be improved by having a sound bar but I understand that a decent one retails at about £200 at Richer Sounds, which is effectively adding £200 to the price (£399) we paid for the TV. It shouldn't be necessary to have to do this just to get a TV that's audible. Very disappointing.
