A compact TV with superb HDR enhanced picture, the Panasonic TX43FX550B shows it as it is.

HDR10 and HLG

The Panasonic TX-43FX550B 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.

1000 Hz BMR for a smoother response
With its 1000 Hz BMR (Backlight Motion rate) panel, this 43 inch Panasonic TV offers the smoothest motion. This means that when watching action movies or sport, the TX43FX550B has the speed and clarity to keep up with the action without motion blur.

Bringing it all together – the smart way
When it comes to smart TV flexibility, the TX43FX550B has all the features you need. A full web browser complements a wide range of web apps. DLNA certified streaming makes it easy to transfer music and video files from your home computer, laptop or NAS drive to the TV.

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).

Connect it all
With three HDMI sockets on hand, you can easily connect up a TV set-top box, Blu-ray/DVD player and games console. The sockets are HDCP2.2 compatible for 4K streaming. Twin USB connections are ideal for plugging in your memory stick devices. Connect a soundbar or base via the optical digital output and gain a big boast to the sound quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy install, good additions Had tv for a week now. Easy to navigate around. Perfect size for our lounge, 43”. Previously had Panasonic tv and wanted to stay loyal. Only snag, was unable to get hd channel,,think cos I’m using digital aerial. barring this all good. Netflix easy to install and works great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to set up I upgraded from 32” and am a little shocked at the size of the screen. I set it up on my own. Most difficult part was putting together the stand and then attaching it to the TV. Set up to wireless was easy. I like the TV guide and the instant access to iPlayer. More complicated to switch to HMDI than my old Panasonic, but I can manage. Big disappointment is the lack of on/off switch. I don’t like leaving appliances on standby and always switch off. Now I will have to unplug, which is less convenient. Good screen clarity and the larger screen makes watching a film much more satisfying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just works It's so nice nowadays to get something out of a box, plug it in and it just works with no faff. That's exactly what this set does. Sound good, picture is great. Can't beat it for the price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from TV not exactly as expected Bought a TV (Panasonic) this year, It priced well and performs fine...what left a bitter taste in my was the sales pitch from Hauke (that’s what name badge said). To convince me of the quality of the Panasonic over the rival he produced a Panasonic remote control which had a weighty metal finish and compared it to a lightweight cheap feeling black plastic remote,the typical remote of the rivals I was told. When I got home opened up the box low and behold there was the very same cheap low quality remote. I prefer to have honest expert advice not pushy sales tactics at any cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Richer Sounds was recommended to me by family members. Bought tv from them as they offered 6 year guarantee as standard. This is something that isn’t offered by any other company selling the same tv at the same price. Delivery was also efficient & communication too. Will definitely use again & recommend to friends too

Rated 4 out of 5 by from TV for Bedroom We were looking for a cheap 4K smart TV which could pick up Amazon Prime . There was a good choice of 43 inch sets from which to pick. We were recommended the Panasonic for its picture quality and the apps available. While the picture does not match up to our much more expensive LG Oled, it is still very good. It was very easy to set up from the box on its central stand and the tuning was very quick to set up. The sound and picture suit are needs for a TV in the bedroom.
