Panasonic TX-40GX800B : A Ultra HD 4K that makes the difference ?

Panasonic ranks among the important actors on the television market, and proposes with this TX-40GX800B, an interesting screen tested by our Laboratory.
A quick glimpse at the specification sheet : 40 inches.
It is clearly among the other rivals models. No more no less.
Beside, this television is equipped with a Ultra HD 4K resolution. It could be said that this model gathers all the expected characteristics. Whether we consider its aesthetics or its size, the engineers of Panasonic have developed a television admittedly a middle-range one, but a quality one anyway.
Should we let ourselves be convinced by thisTX-40GX800B Panasonic ? All answer elements just after.
Has the Panasonic succeeded in the challenge of an efficient television set. This is what we are going to see just after .

The design of the Panasonic TX-40GX800B

The Panasonic TX-40GX800B appears as a real masterstroke of the brand regarding both its interior and exterior design.
The design of the Panasonic TX-40GX800B is largely inspired by the other models in the GX800 series.
A good overall score for this TV; it corresponds to design in the spirit of the times. A quality of materials and a visual aspect that does not make you insensitive.
This Panasonic TX-40GX800B is simply flat.
With its screen surface of 40 inches, it has a typical piano black color.
Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support.
Indeed, it has a simple base, which fits perfectly into the decor, giving you a sense of unity and elegance.The shape of the base is in the shape of a pedestal.A mid-range television set that relies heavily on its design and the quality of its materials; arguments that Panasonic has been promoting for some time now on these products. All this for a price that stays contained.

TV screen presentation Panasonic TX-40GX800B

The Panasonic has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.
Panasonic remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it.
Although of lower quality, an Edge LED system is used for this TV.
It is one of the best devices in its range.

With regard to the display, the company proposes a Ultra HD 4K resolution.
Which puts it among the above-average TVs in its range.
Panasonic presents this TX-40GX800B with a screen of 40 inches; this television is positioned in the range of models, in the average.
At the same time, we are dealing with a nice display on the screen.
Panasonic chooses a frequency of 60 Hz, this television sets itself below its competitors. The game mode is to be avoided, as well as the cinema mode, due to the delay that can occur in the image.
Finally, Panasonic has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an Ultra HD 4K image quality .
Thus, the Panasonic TX-40GX800B allows you to watch everyday movies and videos without necessarily wanting it to be a home theater level. It’s a decent mid-range.

The sound of the Panasonic TX-40GX800B

The sound quality is correct but nothing more. The typical low-medium and mid-range sounds are far from what the competition offers. The sound of the TX-40GX800B still has the advantage of not being saturated. In any case, the installation as presented ex-factory is just sufficient for this television set
The television set is equipped with  two loudspeakers for a sound power of 10 W.
In any case, you get an average rendering.
And for those who are always more demanding, adopt a few more speakers. The home cinema experience is yours with a sound that resonates right into your living room furniture.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The TX-40GX800B Panasonic is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.
