This seems a very good price for size and 4k.

indeed

Very nice indeed

Can't seem to find any reviews for it

Same there are none which is a bit worrying reserved anyway

I think there are no reviews as its a recent set (not many reviews for 2015 sets such as sony, samsung etc), seems like a good deal too big for my lounge though

It's the new entry level model from Panasonic, I expect reviews will follow soon. Generally with Panasonic models, the higher the number on the end of the model name the better it is. The 400b is their bottom of the range model.

Yep. Very new. Struggling to find any reviews.

But the 400 is the bottom of the range set. Someone on AV Forums checked out the CR400 (bottom of the range curved version of this - CX is flat, CR is curved, but most of their spec is otherwise the same) in a store and they weren't hugely impressed.

That said, it does seem like a decent price for a new model, 55", 4k, Panasonic. But, personally, I'd be waiting for reviews before I pulled the trigger. Would be annoying to jump the gun and find out they produced a dud ...

any ideas if it is enabled for:
BT UHD
Netflix 4K
Amazon UHD
Youtube UHD?

Does it have HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2?

Nice, very tempted.

Also, if you buy £800 worth of Gift Cards at Morrisons, you get a voucher for 80 PENCE A LITRE off your next purchase of fuel up to 100 litres. So, anything up to £80 off your next fill up if you have a big tank or some jerry cans.

That doesn't seem that great to me.

Unless your existing TV is a total junker, you could probably sell it for more than £50 ....

You'd surprised, I've got an early HD-ready 32" LCD I'd be lucky to get £30 for.

would they take a broken TV? Doubt they would check it on collection

I bought the cx700 at the weekend which I imagine is similar to this. The picture is great, colours especially but the motion isn't great coming from a Sony.

​This is NOTHING like the CX700. CX700 is a good TV.

CX680 upwards are quad core, have Firefox OS and will get Freeview Play. However the 680 has poorer motion IIRC.

Tempted by this, if only I hadn't just ordered a KDL55W829 for £650!! Thing is, that came with a 5yr warranty from JL
Edited by: "lorenzo99" 30th Jul 2015

in the time when 4k signal will be more around they will come with 8K TV lol. So all of us will rush to buy 8K then 16K.

Anyone know if these TVs have built in USB MKV playback?

Cheers mate, saved my buyers remorse

Panasonic make very good TV's. Usually much better than the likes of Sony, Samsung and LG. Although the new LG oled curved TV is jaw dropingly beautiful and the picture quality is simply out of this world, but seriously expensive.

this is a badged TV, its not made by Panasonic, and does not have any of Panasonic Smart platform, its just a vestel TV, having seen them on a daily basis I would save the money and put it towards a better TV.

bemaniac

it has all of the above



​it will do UHD but only via the HDMI inputs, it doesn't support YouTube 4K, Or Amazon 4k within the TV, Netflix it might do, but its hard to tell with the poor screen.

Unfortunately, it will probably only look amazing in the shop when they are running a video carefully designed to make the TV look amazing (via USB) -- but when you get it home, you'll soon realise there is little-to-no amazing footage being piped into your home for entertainment consumption!

The TV will probably never get a chance to show what it can do in reality, It would be the equivalent of driving a McLaren F1 exclusively to the local supermarket and back

Bottom of the range, OMG, it's £799 for a 55" panel 3D with 4K, what do people expect for under £800!?

​My mate said the picture is better on my W829

oops, damn phones so sensitive! As per above my friend said the picture on my W829 is better than his Sony 49 inch 4k, even when playing Netflix 4k.

So does it upscale everything to 4K? I expect not so the only thing that i could watch in 4K is my copy of Captain Phillips which is the only blu ray i have in 4K.

If its £799 with 4K what would it be for normal HD i wonder - what is the cost of 4K?
