Featuring local diming and Wide Colour Spectrum, the Panasonic TX40EX700B gets closer to the real picture than ever.


Brilliant Contrast and Wide Colour Spectrum for superb detail

The Panasonic TX40EX700B is the first in their 2017 range with Brilliant Contrast and Wide Colour Spectrum enhancements. Just as the name suggests, Wide Colour Spectrum offers a wider palette of colours for an enhanced sense of realism. Brilliant Contrast ups the contrast level for deeper blacks and brighter whites.

Local dimming for the best picture from all sources
Equipped with Local Dimming, this Panasonic 40 inch TV makes the most of any images - whatever the resolution. Whether 4K UHD, 1080p FHD or standard definition, Local Dimming adjusts the brightness of the screen by zones. This gives greatly improved contrast, as the black sections of the TV can be darker and the whites brighter.

HDR now with HLG compatibility
The Panasonic TX-40EX700B is 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 1600 Hz BMR for a smoother response
Updated from a 1400 Hz to 1600 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 TX40EX700B 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 TX40EX700B 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).

A powerful performer, the Panasonic TX40EX700B has a better picture than ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture!!! Bought this 2 weeks ago to replace a much loved 10 year old Panasonic Viera plasma, and couldn't be happier with my choice. Excellent picture quality with all the features & apps you'd expect on a modern smart TV. Can't speak for the sound quality as use a soundbar

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has everything I'm looking for in a t.v. Okay, I'd done the research -been to the limited number of retailers that were able to display & demonstrate the sort of t.v I was looking for. My previous t.v was a Panasonic 32" c.r.t. unit described as about the best one of it's type out there by a leading specialist mag. It maybe that there was a degree of "so called" "brand loyalty" there you mught think, but not really. As I've had other manufacturer's products, but this set really did & does "tick ALL the boxes" , together with the top flight service provided by the guys at Richer Sounds, + their extended g/tee, price point, choice of delivery days etc etc, it's a wonder why anyone whose serious about choosing almost any electrical item would even consider going elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely picture and HD content amazing. We do not change our electrical items until they stop working, Our 13 year old Philips flat screen blew up last week-end and so a new TV was required. We did not realise how improved the new sets were and are delighted. ..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great (when switched off!) Review is for the 40" version of this TV. I suspect 50"+ TVs have a better picture by virtue of the better screen/panel. This TV was purchased for a bedroom where I felt I could get away with a bigger 40" TV over the 32" currently in there. I narrowed it down to the 40ex700b, Samsung 40MU6400 and an LG 43 710V. The Panasonic stood out as a much nicer looking TV in design, with a noticeabley smaller bezel than the Samsung, and the LG (being much chunkier). I also needed a TV with a vertical/flat VESA mounting position as I had a slim fixed mount to mount the TV as close to the wall as possible. This ruled out the fat LG and the Samsung MU6400 which has a sloped back requiring either spacers or a tiltable mount. I prefer to buy higher spec TVs but 40" is now considered small by manufacturers these days and it is apparent the technical specification of TVs 40" and below is now below par across all makes. The biggest flaw with the Panasonic and others being the use of a 50hz panel (vs 100hz panels in all the larger EX700B TVs). On screens 32" and less you don't notice this too much as there isn't much screen estate to shift around but I believe this contributes to the blur people are seeing, and on a 40" TV it should have a panel to reflect the relatively large size and maintain the spec of a mid-tier TV like this. On a similar note, 4K is just not needed on a TV this size (unless you are sitting a 1ft away or using it as a monitor); at a normal viewing distance 1080p is indistinguishable from 4k (and I would trade a top quality 1080p genuine 100 or 200hz panel instead of the 4k 50hz on offer here). Sound isn't bad at all, Standard mode is best which still allows you to uplift bass and treble settings. It could be better with a simple duct at the bottom to direct the sound forward instead of down (this makes such a difference and costs pence to completely change the clarity and direction of the audio - it's beyond me while manufacturers don't do this). It's like having a speaker on your hifi and turning it upside down vs facing you - it makes a big difference to the sound! Black level is impressive, the screen is glossy jet black and I haven't noticed reflections being too annoying - the glossy screen helps the perception of deep blacks, which continue when you turn the lights out so in the environment of a bedroom it is working for me. No light bleed or clouding is visible, so films have nice crisp black bars even with bright scenes. HD Freeview picture quality is ok, but there is noticeable "macro blocking" or MPEGing even with HD channels that I just never see on my other TVs, especially in darker areas of scenes. However picture quality on SD Freeview channels is borderline appalling, the worse I've seen for years and my circa 2013 and 2014 LG and Samsung TVs are much better at this. Couple this with noticeable motion blur and the picture could be considered poor. I don't tend to watch much SD channels though, and generally stream HD content (films etc) or stick HD Freeview channels with this TV. But if it was my main TV in a living room I would not accept it and would go with the Samsung MU6400. Before I wall mount a TV I usually quickly put it on its stand to "test" the TV, but the stand design on this TV is ridiculous, comprising of 2 angles feet and 2 further sub-brackets that join the feet to the TV. I have a habit of never reading instructions as in my opinion if you need to read instructions on how to fit a stand to a TV, it hasn't been designed properly. You should be able to lift a TV out of its box and straight on to a centre stand which will then hold the TV whilst you secure it with a screw through the back. Not have it laying on its screen or upside down whilst you faff about potentially damaging your TV. And so is the case with this. I couldn't quickly work out the orientation of the feet and it would also mean you bizarrely need a larger footprint area than the TV itself to put it on, which for a small TV defeats the point. PANASONIC, JUST A CENTRE STAND WILL DO. Fortunately this wasn't much of an issue for me as I was wall-mounting it. The TV starts quickly and is nice and responsive, apps like Netflix and Amazon load quickly and channels change quickly. + Excellent aesthetics & build + Very good black level and zero backlight bleed meaning can be watched in darkness + Decent sound + Decent picture (but only when the source is good) + Netflix quick start button is useful + Fast and responsive smart platform and channel changes - Motion blur is noticeable - Poor picture when the source is low quality (Samsung and LG and infinitely better in this regard) - Macro blocking in dark areas of scenes even with a high quality feed can be seen from normal viewing distance; on board MPEG and/or Noise reduction settings make no difference at all to this - Stand design is ridiculous And to close, great service from Richer Sounds with the best price I could find and also kept me informed throughout delivery process and the TV was delivered with a 2-man specialised service so arrived in pristing condition. So the rating is no reflection of Richer Sounds but just of the TV itself which is below par for picture quality vs Samsung etc.
