TV has just got a whole lot more real - with the HDR compatible Panasonic TX50DX802B.

HDR - High Dynamic Range

Taking 4K UHD one stage further, the Panasonic TX-50DX802B is also compatible with HDR (High Dynamic Range). This extends the range of colours for enhanced realism. It also delivers brighter whites and darker blacks, helping to give this TV stunning levels of contrast.

4K Studio Master Processor
Panasonic's 4K Studio Master Processor contains unrivalled processing ability from the past masters of reference-quality plasma and professional monitors. Together with Wide Colour Phosphor technology, it ensures accurate colour, deep blacks and brilliant brightness for a true-to life picture.

THX certified
The final seal of approval for picture quality comes from cinema experts THX. THX was founded by legendary film maker George Lucas, with the aim of improving cinematic experience. TVs have to pass 400 lab tests within 30 categories to receive THX certification - something that very few TVs manage to do. Except the TX-50DX802B.

VR Audio Master 2.1 Surround
Although still not a match for a separate home cinema system, the sound quality on this 50 inch TV is excellent by TV standards. With a 2.1 sound system, it uses a 12-train Prismatic speaker system plus quad passive radiators to provide a fuller and richer sound. Added to this, VR-Audio Master Surround 2.1 creates a spacious and 'open' sound quality.

Effortless operation with my Home Screen 2 powered by Firefox OS and Voice Assistant
Highly rated by the reviewers, my Home Screen 2 offers an attractive and clear operating interface which is also easy to customise. By using clear, superimposed icons, it's easy to find the function you want. Better still, with just a few clicks you can get your favourite apps, web pages or even TV channels to appear on your own customised Homepage. With clarity and easy customisation, this is how Smart TV should be! Voice Assistant means you simply have to speak into the controller to bring up content and search results.

Integrate your entertainment
When it comes to smart TV flexibility, the TX50DX802B has all the features you need. A wide range of web apps are complimented by a full web browser. DLNA certified streaming makes it easy to transfer music and video files from your home computer, laptop or NAS drive to the TV. Also standard is 4K Swipe and Share functionality. 4K Swipe and share lets you use the Panasonic VIERA app for smartphone media sharing. By using the app on your smartphone or tablet you can easily stream pictures, 4K videos and music straight to the TV - no cables required.

Freeview Play, Freetime and twin HD tuners for a superior TV experience
Freeview Play combines catch-up TV, on-demand services and live television to make watching what you want, when you want as easy as possible. The service is free from subscription and compatible with existing broadband services. Freetime is the smart TV guide from Freesat (satellite dish required) that gives you a Roll Back TV Guide to watch shows you've missed from the past seven days. Thanks to twin TV tuners you can watch one programme while recording another.

Take your TV entertainment to the next level, with the stunningly realistic Panasonic TX-50DX802B.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid performer - even if it's not a plasma/OLED Forced to replace our expired Panasonic plasma (TH46PZ81), I opted for this. Location means 50” is the maximum possible size – so OLED wasn’t an option. Due to the plasma’s ridiculous electricity addiction (600w) and heat output, I had looked at LCD before – but advice from the RS staff had been “Don’t do it. It will just annoy you. Wait for an OLED.” Ultimately, that remains sound advice - if you can wait. Even this relatively lofty model from the now exiting range suffers quite severe compromises with uneven panel backlighting. On a “black” screen, areas of light and a ‘halo’ are clearly visible. Compared to the plasma’s slight – but completely even - glow on what should be a true black this LCD panel is 2nd best. In the real world though, unless you’re watching Alien3 on repeat, it’s a problem you don’t suffer a lot. The other major concern was motion and edge smearing. In this area though, I’m not yet feeling compromised. After set-up, first family viewing was the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix. Channel 4’s HD coverage captured by the on-board Freesat tuner (this model has DVB-T2 and S). This could have been a disaster. Floodlit, high contrast, saturated colours, fast movement and large areas of black. In reality, it was a pleasure to watch. Production values and broadcast (on Freesat at least, I’ve not yet tried the DVB-T2 tuner – which I suspect in my area will suffer compression problems) made for a great watch. No obvious edge or motion problems after the “intelligent” frame creation was turned off. My experience is this ‘feature’ only ever makes a perfectly watchable picture jerky and jarring and I turn it off for all input profiles. 4K viewing so far has proved easy but slightly underwhelming. Content options for me are delivered by the on-board Amazon Prime Video and Netflix clients. Easy set-up of these emphasises the advance Panasonic has made with its “smart” TVs. I have two other 32” in the house and a DVR – one of which runs the same EPG style as the 802 – but it’s frustratingly slow and dim-witted on that low-end unit. The 802’s much beefier processors and Firefox OS make navigating faster and more productive. That buying habit means I speak ‘Panasonic’ well – but I think anyone could get from plug in to Freesat tuned and wireless connection done in about 5 minutes. In action, 4K content is impressive. Both Amazon and Netflix clients auto-detect the 802 capability and offer 4K options. In Netflix’ case, that starts with an invitation to upgrade subscription to access the content…. My start point was Amazon Prime Video’s lushly photographed and effects-rich “American Gods”. As with standard HD content, the client spools up in a lower resolution and then builds the stream up to 4K – usually after about 10 seconds. Extremes of detail and shadow become visible and overall depth presentation comes up a notch. I’ve noted being underwhelmed by 4K. That’s not because it isn’t noticeably better than ‘standard’ broadcast HD in every area. It is. Given the recommended connection speed for 4K streaming on both services is 16mbps vs. the 2.5mbps that will generally deliver a standard HD stream though, that increment isn’t as big as I’d expected. It also doesn’t feel like a massive leap forward from a nicely authored Blu-Ray. The no-fuss performance though does suggests the on-board WiFi card is well specified for the job. Plugging the trusty Playstation 3 into one of the 802’s four HDMI ports generates impressive results. The opening sequence of “Quantum of Solace” pops off the screen with plenty of detail and engaging motion – once of course you’ve switched off the “intelligent frame creation” experience degradation. And Red Bull Media’s often-seen-for-in-store-demos snowboarding documentary “The Art of Flight” shows a lot of depth, blue sky, powder spraying and slow-mo helicopters glinting impressively in the sunlight. Neither suffering significantly from the aforementioned ‘technical’ backlight imbalances or motion smear. Even after some internet searching and reading, I’m still not sure if the 802 does anything after ingesting the 1080p input to take advantage of the panel capability. If it does, it’s doing it well. Other stuff Connectivity and installation:- Four HDMI’s – some with ARC – are likely to cover your basics. Plus powered USB’s means I’ll be augmenting the available apps with a Chromecast to stream other content. Mainly Eurosport for winter sports – which for some reason Panasonic (or Eurosport) have dropped as a supported app. One watch-out here is the connection placements. Apart from the ludicrously short – and fixed – AC power lead (I had to cut the plug off to install and wire a new one. Luckily without needing to extend) which emerges from the bottom right corner (as you look at the front) all the other connections are over on the bottom left. If you’re planning on wall mounting this, you may lose access to some of these. I re-used the extremely beefy Sanus VLF220 that had born the burden of the plasma. As a result, the rear frame is chunky and when configured to 400x200 pattern on the 802 it partly obstructs some of the rear-facing inputs. For my install, that problem was made a bit tougher by adding the Sanus sound-bar mount to accommodate the 802’s separate speaker. By the way, if you’re not wall-mounting, that also features a quite short umbilical with proprietary power-and-signal connector which will annoy and frustrate any attempt to extend. The end result is that I’ve got what I need (3 side-facing of 4 HDMI, a couple of USB and the satellite/UHF) – but if you really need the optical out or the phono plugs, check first. Design and form: Works for me. Slim chrome bezel and inoffensive sound bar matches up with most décor. As with most LCDs, the total unit is slim anyway. The fussy ‘design’ stand won’t work everywhere – especially as it doesn’t tilt. Mine’s now in the loft carefully positioned into the eaves as – although there are screws for assembly, they’ve been at least glued into position at the factory. Even a quick attempt with an impact driver couldn’t move them to disassemble. Sound: Separate sound bar as part of the design solution provides above average sound – but won’t leave enthusiasts thinking they won’t want a separate (see my note about the optical out!). Plus the propriety connector and short lead could be a pain for you anywhere other than dedicated furniture or floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top TV. I did a lot of research before deciding on this particular model and agonized between this and the Samsung equivalent. Technically, for my preferences (I wanted Freesat and Freeview Play), this model had the edge over the Samsung but to be honest, the style of the stand really put me off. Then I read a review where the purchaser had also bought the Sanus VTVS1 B2 stand and that sealed the deal for me. I'll be honest and say that I don't yet own a 4k Blu-Ray player so haven't tested the screen with 4k or HDR input but this TV's upscaling abilities haven't disappointed me. SD content is definitely improved but HD material really looks great. The real strength of this screen though, and the one that really attracted me to it is the depth of the black levels which are pretty inky, so if like me you hate grey-blacks and can't stretch to an OLED screen put this Panasonic on your shopping list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tv , great service, recommended. What a glorious picture, tried av forums recommendations for fine tuning as the dx802 did seem a little overly bright out of the box, The sound bar works a freat, definitely not surround sound but good clear sound for watching day to day tv,. The stand is overly big , personally i like the design, you would need a large stand to accomodate it tho, this was irrelevant as i was wall mounting, now this is where there was a small snag as the vesa holes are at he bottom end of this tv, so i had to drop my existing bracket to suit it which was a pain. redrilling the wall and filling in old holes, but worth it, Firefox quick and simple to use, overall i think this tv is a really good package, PS, dont forget to try the Richer sounds phone sales line they did a great deal in beating a leading competitors price and with the 6 year warranty and next day delivery makes them in my opinion unbeatable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need You can spend a long time trying to find out which tv has features others don't and which has the higher spec in what areas. Given at this price bracket picture quality is down to opinion and settings, this tv has the edge over the others in what else it has to offer. This has everything the other TVs have and more and is as good at what a tv as meant to do as all the others. Other makes may be sexier at the moment but if you do your research I think on balance this wins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent TV Spent a lot of time researching this TV and very happy with my decision. Huge range of features. Didn't like the supplied stand and it wouldn't fit on our cabinet so bought a Sanus VTVS1 B2 instead Richer Sounds were extremely helpful and I will definitely return for further purchases!
