Now with Multi-HDR support, the Panasonic TX40EX600B is more compatible with the world of Ultra HD than ever.

HDR with HDR10 and HLG compatibility

The Panasonic TX-40EX600B is now compatible with HDR (High Dynamic Range). HDR 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. HDR10 and HLG formats are both covered. HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma HDR) is a broadcast and user generated standard format that is set to become the standard for transmitting 4K signals.

Updated 1300 Hz BMR for a smoother response
Updated from a 800 Hz to 1300 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 TX40EX600B has the speed and clarity to keep up with the action without motion blur.

Smart operator and Voice Assistant
my Home Screen 2 and Info Frame screens offer 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. With just a few clicks you can get your favourite apps, web pages or even TV channels to appear on your own customised homepage. Crystal clear and easy to customise; 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.

Bringing it all together
When it comes to smart TV flexibility, the TX40EX600B has all the features you need. A wide range of web apps are complemented 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 Swipe and Share functionality. 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 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).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good All good, the only fault is in the design--location of leg support--centre fixing has standard would be good

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing quality TV although some downsides.... In the shop side by side with all the other 4K HDR TV’s of a similar price (LG and Samsung £349) this TV had a significantly better picture quality playing the same movie. The built in sound is surprisingly good and so are the apps and features although you would expect the same from any smart TV. It plays my PS4 perfectly without any notable input lag issues. The downsides are the stand, it isn’t a centre swivel which has made it a little awkward to position on my table as the legs either side of the TV are huge. The remote is bulky and not good for internet browsing like the media remote of the Samsung. Lastly there are so many features on the TV settings that can greatly improve and reduce the quality of 4K video, I literally played around with these for hours and I found that I had to have all of them either off or set to low to stop motion blur from being a noticeable problem even with it’s ‘clear motion’ setting on. On the whole though for it’s price I know I got the best TV even if you have to spend hours adjusting the settings to make it suitable

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture, shame about the feet This is a great TV in terms of features and picture but the stand/feet are rubbish. Sure they are well made and provide a stable platform BUT they are at the extremities of the TV so limit hugely how you can set the TV up. You may have to buy an new cupboard/shelf/bracket or re-arrange your room. The larger screen models have options for the feet - this one doesn't.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good screen, bad design I bought this because it was the best 40" TV available with Freeview Play. I had seen reviews about the long legs, but thought this wouldn't matter because it was sitting on a shelf the same length as the TV. Problem - when I set it up, the length of the legs protruding behind the TV meant I couldn't angle it at all on the shelf so ended up viewing from a strange direction. It's a terrible design. As well as making it clumsy to fit into a space, it also looks ugly. The screen sits very high on the legs. I've changed it for a Samsung model - many thanks to Richer Sounds for making this so simple with quibbles. The Samsung looks great and feels like a different quality of design. Shame about Freeview Play though, which is a great system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality TV Fantastic TV. Very pleased with all aspects. Great picture, connectivity and amazingly, good sound. It does take a fairly technically minded person to setup, so you if you are a technophobe, please bear this in mind - you might need some help (this however would be the case with any Smart TV). USB recording work great with an external HDD and loving DNLA built into the TV. One thing you wont find on google is that Samsung smart view works with Viera link. This basically means that you can play a video (or stream) from your phone, cast it on the TV, and control the video (play, pause etc) direct from the TV remote - amazing! Contrary to other reviews, you can have TV channel favorites, you don't need an external PSU for recording TV on an external DVD; that is related the HDD caddy, not the TV Only negative is the feet. Fortunately mine is wall mounted so not a problem. Great price from Richer Sounds and free 6 year warranty - what more could you ask?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 4k is brilliant compared to my old 28in Panasonic its revelation, and look forward to many happy hours of viewing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Picture and ideal for fast action Sport I only have a small lounge and this great slim 40" TV is perfect for us to view. We all love sport and the picture quality is superb. It has so many features that are terrific.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Bought this to replace a previous Panasonic tv which I was always pleased with but was not a Smart tv. The EX 600 disappoints in a number of ways. 1 The stands are so big and at either end of the tv that a large cabinet/ table is required. 2 ‘Glossy’ screen means more reflection from windows etc. 3 When viewing from the side the picture is appears to have lost colour and definition. 4 On some broadcasts there appears to be an overall blue tint.
