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 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 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.

We'll happily come to you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Panasonic smart TV I bought a Panasonic smart TV a couple of weeks ago, really pleased with purchase it is fantastic. Took minutes to set up and managed it on my own! Great service and advice from Richer sounds store manager, really helpful and not one bit pushy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good all round with minor negatives. Went to Plymouth Richer Sounds and asked to see TVs in "normal" mode i.e BBC1, ITV in SD / HD rather than 4K as this is what we tend to watch. This was no problem, they connected a sat box and spent time demonstrating the various models we were interested in. Deciding on the Panasonic TX40EX700B, straight from the box the pictures had deep blacks but the picture was far too bright, the sound is suitable for our needs on live / recorded TV but would be better using a sound bar for action movies etc. The picture was adjusted from the manufacturers settings and eventually we got the right balance and is now excellent in HD. Programs in SD, depending on the broadcast are mostly very good but can be average on certain channels. The legs can be adjusted front to back but not moved in, this meant buying a table top stand as they hung over our cabinet. Pros: Picture quality, viewing angles, no motion blur or judder, Freeview play, remote control, position of HDMI cables sockets Cons: Setting up picture, lack of instructions, legs at each end of set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A quality product with features galore. Hat off to Richer Sounds. Having driven myself mad with so many 4K options on the market, a simple recommendation from Daniel at Kingston, pointed me to the new Panasonic TV. A beautiful natural picture which is less than 40 mm thick. Certainly looks a classy product. Having always had had Sony TV's, the recommendation from Richer Sounds is much appreciated. The TV needs a sound bar as the audio is poor which is not surprising given the thickness of the set. This is not a criticism, as 4K needs to be paid with a decent sound system to get the full effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb quality and performance. Having always been a Samsung set purchaser (not due to name but due to picture) I was plesently surprised seeing the set next to Samsung’s offering. Whilst both great pictures the Panasonic set offered a stunning black black, we are slowly getting back to the blacks from plasma on smaller sets! Sales assistant was great, as I’d expect after using the Southampton branch for more than 18 years! Within 3 hours I had it linked to our Denon Av amp and all sources, picture took a small amount of tweaking, not the most intuitive setup but we got there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Purchase This device is exactly what I was looking for. The image quality is sublime and all the features are brilliant. My only issue is that the screen mirroring app from Panasonic isn't that great, but that's more an issue with the app than the TV. Overall, I would definitely recommend.
