All that’s great about Panasonic Smart TVs – just with a smaller screen – the Panasonic TX-40HX800B is the smart choice for a compact TV.

HCX Processor – Hollywood-tuned picture processor
Tuned by an industry expert in Hollywood, this 40 inch Panasonic TV delivers a picture that’s faithful to the colour and detail originally intended. The powerful HCX processor features 3D LUT, HDR and 4K remaster tech to accurately reproduce the picture – just as the filmmaker intended.

HDR Bright Panel Plus for super-sharp images
Once the signal has been processed by the powerful HCX device, it’s sent to a screen that does it justice – HDR Bright Panel Plus. Using extra-bright LED backlights, this screen goes brighter and therefore enhances contrast, giving superb levels of contrast – even in conditions of high ambient light.

Local Dimming – enhanced contrast
Working in conjunction with the HDR Bright Panel Plus, Local Dimming gives more control over the picture contrast. By being able to dim particular areas of the image, contrast is enhanced, making images look even more natural and lifelike. The processing is so fast and seamless, you’ll notice nothing except an incredible sense of image realism.

Multi-format HDR support for a stunning picture from all sources
If you’re wondering whether to choose between a TV that supports HDR10+ and one that supports Dolby Vision, you no longer have to. That’s because, this Panasonic 40” TV supports them both! HDR10+ and Dolby Vision offer scene-by-scene HDR mastering for the truest, most accurate HDR picture technology. Each scene is optimised, meaning the maximum amount of detail is shown – even in the brightest or darkest moments.

Dolby Atmos for enveloping sound
Compatible with Dolby Atmos sound, this Panasonic TV creates a more immersive, enveloping sound. For even more immersion, select the Cinema Surround setting, or use the HDMI ARC or optical digital output to add a soundbar or base.

HomeScreen 5.0 for easy navigation and voice control support
The latest version of Panasonic’s HomeScreen makes all the smart functions easy to access. When selecting content from your favourite streaming apps, the system now offers thumbnail images, making it much easier to find your favourite programme. Alternatively, support for Google Assistant and Alexa means you can find content via voice command.

Search, stream and play
When it comes to Smart TV flexibility, the TX40HX800B has all the features you need. As well as the popular streaming apps, the TV also offers 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 Remote TV 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).

Bluetooth Audio Link
Featuring a two-way Bluetooth Audio link, the TX40HX800 makes the most of this wireless connectivity. Use the Bluetooth output to link up with your headphones or Bluetooth speaker. Alternatively, send Bluetooth sound from your smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth enabled device to the TV and listen through the TV’s speakers.

Perfect as a second TV and for smaller rooms, the Panasonic TX-40HX800B delivers Panasonic perfection – just on a smaller scale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture and sound Very happy with recent purchase and delivered in less than 24 hours
Date published: 2021-01-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture and sound - very happy Bought this TV on deciding that our 32" was just too small for movie watching, but not wanting a massive screen that would dominate our lounge. This well priced and highly recommended option has not disappointed. The thin black border means you can maximum screen for the size. Sound is heaps better than our five year-old LG, which we used with a soundbar. The only disappointment is that Panasonic are yet to support the NOW TV app, which - whilst having pretty dismal functionality - is a useful well priced TV option and one popular with many people including me. Plugging in my computer to use NOW TV, therefore, is a bit of a faff. But overall very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'Does what it says on the tin' Great picture, great sound and just the right size (40") so it does not dominate our lounge. Richer Sounds could not have been more helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant features I've only had this for a week but so far so good. Easy to set up and use. Lots of features. Picture and sound are great. No complaints so far. I've always loved Panasonic and have never had a problem. Would have preferred it at a lower price but you pay for quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very poor viewing angles Purchased PANA-TX-40HX800B online with Richer Sounds - Arrived 4 days later on Christmas eve despite no stock in uk when ordered. Worst thing about the tv is the poor viewing angle - if you look at it from the side (say more than 20 degrees) the picture starts to look washed out and by 45 degrees its dreadful. Effect happens vertically too eg if you are seated close to it and then stand up. Since discovered this is because panasonic have used a VA display panel, a type which I thought manufacturers had ditched in favour of IPS because of the viewing angle performance. TV is currently placed in the corner of a spare room, which limits viewing angles anyway, so family are ok with it, but it would have been no good in the lounge placed flat against a wall. The picture quality in 4k is superb. However, there is not much 4k available and none via freeview. Youtube 4k has streamed fine without glitches despite our broadband rarely being more than 20mbps in that room. As others have said standard definition pictures tend to look blurred and colours tend to range from garish to washed out with the standard picture presents available, including "normal". Overall get better picture with standard definition pictures on the 12 year old 37inch panasonic it replaced or even our 7yr old 51 inch Samsung plasma tv which has a sharper picture despite the larger size. You can adjust numerous picture parameters by going into the main tv menu - changing how the standard preset options will look or even set up your own custom option, but rather stupidly the custom option cannot be selected using the picture button on the remote. Even changing picture settings manually it can be difficult to get a reasonably bright, colourful but natural result. This is less of an issue with HD pictures, and 4k is so fantastic that extra brightness and colour saturation is great to look at even if not entirely natural. Small irritation is that there is no page up/down button when viewing the freeview guide, have to scroll through all the channels, but it is quick. Overall I'd say avoid this tv because of the poor viewing angles and if you can live without 4k probably better off buying something a lot cheaper, but if you really want 4k consider spending even more (perhaps stacks more) for an altogether better tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant telly Bought this on Boxing Day. Wanted a screen larger than our old 32" but not too big. This is the perfect size for any medium sized room and the picture quality is fantastic. And was delivered on the Tuesday after Xmas on standard delivery. Bought our last telly from Richer Sounds and again this time, it's a brilliant product, with great service and a competitive price...all with the extra guarantee. Fab!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality kit. I always purchase Panasonic equipment as it's of high quality, offers excellent picture and is well made. I consider it to offer good value for money, when you consider the technology involved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great television The television is great - easy to set up and very happy with the quality. The stand came with a scratch (not noticed until unpacked). Richer Sounds responded very quickly and are organising for a new stand to be despatched from Panasonic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good TV for my parents I bought this for my parents to replace their 10 year old TV. When plugged into an HD source, it really shines. The sound is also much, much better and a lot clearer than their last one. Colours are vibrant and the picture is sharp. I turned off all the unnecessary picture processing and we played around withe the colour etc, until it displayed a great picture. It has all the apps they'll ever need, although it took a while to educate them on how to use them :). All in all, this is a really great TV.
Date published: 2021-01-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Panasonic TX40HX800B Excellent features and sound with many menu options to improve most aspects of sound and vision. We bought this to replace an older TV with deteriorating sound and we’ve not been disappointed.
Date published: 2021-01-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture, easy setup. I bought this just before Christmas as an upgrade on our old 38' HD Panasonic.The thin bezel means is is physically no bigger. The picture quality is very impressive. The sound is good, but not outstanding. Internet setup with wifi or ethernet is easy and performance is fast and responsive.
Date published: 2021-01-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture and sound I bought this product specifically for its size (40cm). It was above budget but as size was my priority my options were limited. I am more than happy with my choice as it has a good picture and great sound, far better than the Samsung I normally opt for.
Date published: 2021-01-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great size and quality for small spaces Really good image quality from high def signals, sound quality not bad but better with linked stereo, takes a while to work out best custom picture settings as the defaults are a bit all over the place and don't show the set off to its best effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good service I bought this tv 2 weeks ago, although l was told that there was delay in the tv l wanted . So after a week l decided to ring to see what the update was .The gentleman who sent me my email said that they were expecting some in on week 21st December. This was on the 17th Dec on the 18 th my tv turned up. I was very pleased and over the moon. I am more than delighted with the new tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding picture & great build quality I was looking for a compact TV for a small room and chose this model due to the comparitively high spec, having looked at several others over the last few days. I’m so glad I did. It was easy to assemble and set up with auto tune and app selection. Works well with my Sky box too. It has crystal clear display and great sound, even without a sound bar attached. Very impressed with the 24 hour delivery too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic smart tv With not many 40" smart TVs on the market, and having panasonic in the past you can't fault this one. Easy set up loads of apps great picture and sound. I ordered over the phone, had to wait for delivery which wasn't a problem. Richer sounds at maidstone contacted me when it was in the hub and delivery was next day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Panasonic TX-40HX800B delivery Due to space considerations the largest TV I could accommodate was 40". I also wanted a 4K screen as I have a growing library of 4K DVDs. After a lot of research the Panasonic TX-40HX800B met all of my requirements - but nobody had one in stock, Richer Sounds said they were delivery before Xmas. It was dually delivered before Xmas and I am highly with the TV and Richer Sounds delivery. The only downside is that I think it is £50 too expensive - but if you want the best you have to pay for itr.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moving into the 'Smart' Age We not only wanted our first 'smart' TV but had a potential problem about locating it in our narrow sitting room without it dominating everything. The TV is giving us exactly the service we need and the wall bracket hinge works a treat. We are delighted with the result.
Date published: 2020-12-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to set up Arrived within 48hrs of ordering in store. Easy to set up, very good on HD and sound. Bit disappointed on angle of viewing as did explain to operative in store that needed a wide vewing angle for the configuration of seating in my living room, he assured me it would be ok at a distance, but this is no quite the case. However, the size of the set, its very narrow bezel and neat appearance do not make it the most prominant feature of the room, which is what I was aiming for. This is why I was willing to pay a premium price.
Date published: 2020-12-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Buy I decided it was time to purchase a Smart tv and knowing that Panasonic enjoyed a good reputation, this is the manufacturer I chose. I had the model set up professionally and suffered no disappointments. Excellent clear vision and sound - I am delighted with my investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 4KTV at Reasonable Cost Having always purchased Sony televisions in the past and having a Sony 4K in our main lounge I was looking for a 4k with a smaller screen for our bedroom and this tv is the only one that fitted the bill. It has a great picture and pretty good sound for such a slim tv and operation via the remote is easy and positive.
