First-rate picture quality and smart connectivity from a top brand make the Panasonic TX-49DS500B a big screen bargain.

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. This Panasonic 49 inch TV also uses a top quality LED screen with Adaptive Backlight Dimming for superior contrast and realism - especially noticeable on its generous 49-inch screen.

400 Hz BMR for a crisp response
The Panasonic TX-49DS500B uses a 400 Hz BMR (Backlight Motion rate) panel for a super-crisp motion response. This means that when watching action movies or sport, the TX49DS500B has the speed and clarity to keep up with the action without motion blur.

Freetime via Wi-Fi built-in
The Panasonic TX-49DS500B has Freetime built-in, which lets you scroll back through TV listings and watch programmes from catch-up services, such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and Demand 5 without having to open specific applications (you'll need a broadband internet connection).

Smart connectivity
When it comes to connecting up, the TX-49DS500B 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, WI-Fi and USB
Use the app-based browser to view shopping based functions, social media apps and catch-up TV channels. There is also a web browser, letting you surf the web on the big screen via either Ethernet or built-in Wi-Fi. A USB interface lets you enjoy music from many different file types via the dedicated media player.

Swipe and Share, plus My Home Screen
The TX49DS500B 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 allows different users to personalise the home screen.

Spacious sound
For a slim TV, the Panasonic TX-49DS500B has good sound quality. The built-in 20W amplifier gives full-bodied sound, while V-Audio produces a more spacious effect. There's an optical digital audio output allowing easy connection to a soundbar/base for much improved sound.

A big screened and fully featured TV for less, the Panasonic TX-49DS500B is a top-brand bargain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice neat design and easy to use ....plus good value if you are not requiring 4k Very helpful in store advice with the benefit of a 6 year guarantee . Good picture quality and sound only slight reservation is the speed that the programme guide comes up at though this might be related more to my wifi signal than the TV. All in all a great value 49 inch TV wrapped up in a smart design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price, Warranty and picture This TV is quite large, 1080 HD picture is excellent, the price was higher than competitors by £20-£30 but worth the extra for the 6 years Richer Sounds warranty. The sound quality is as good as it should be as it is panasonic, they really do know how to make speakers! It was simple to set up with the WIFI and works well with Netflix and Amazon Video on a standard connection (not fibre) Overall, very impressed and very happy with the quality and the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Technology has advanced since this tv was manufactured Lovely looking TV set with a nicely laid out remote control. Trouble is the picture on freeview is rubbish. It's pixelly and blurred. The main reason for this is that the tv doesn't have freeview hd. The tv it replaced had it and one would assume it would be standard now days but no. Seeing as the set won't be used online or with any hdmi devices I cannot comment on the sets capabilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tv great features and had everything that i needed. A good all rounder at a great price. Excellent service as usual, and didn't try to sell me something that i didn't want or need for my situation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disapiinting Should have been great, but is in fact a let down. The picture on anything that isn't HD is terrible, and with only 11 HD free view channels your stuck. It's grainy and dirty looking, everything that moves has motion blur on any input or setting. Within 2 weeks we got backlight bleed in one corner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really good buy and buying experience Very pleased with this product which is just what I wanted - an up to date TV with SMART features. This Panasonic has a great quality picture, the sound is excellent and the service from Richer Sounds and their Contractor BJS was second to none. The product was in perfect condition, was checked carefully with me before delivery was completed. This was good value for money in every way - with the added bonus of a free 6 year warranty giving peace of mind. What could be better?
