Sober but in line with current trends. Panasonic has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
The design of the Panasonic TX-55GX551 is largely inspired by the other models in the FX-55 series.

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.
With this new TX-55GX551 Panasonic, the company makes an assumed technological choice.
It’s LED and that’s good because the image result is excellent.
A sum of characteristics that places it among the best in its range.
The Panasonic TX-55GX551 is available in the Ultra HD 4K resolution.
Which is already above the average resolution of the range.
Panasonic presents this TX-55GX551 with a screen of 55 inches; this television is among the greatest.
At the same time, we are dealing with a nice display on the screen.
By providing it with a frequency of 60 Hz, this television is therefore less well placed than its competitors. Shifted image and lack of precision make this model a low end of the range.
Even better, thanks to its advanced technology, the screen of this television provides a Ultra HD 4K quality resolution.
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.
TX-55GX551 from Panasonic – The sound
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-55GX551 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 equipment consists of two baffles with 10 W at output.
Basically, you get an average rendering.
Maybe if you want to or if you are a perfectionist, you can connect two other speakers with a bass boost to amplify the result.
In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The TX-55GX551 Panasonic is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.
