I think it should all be done straight out of the box. If it all goes South after a 4 or 5 years then fine. Buy an Amazon stick or whatever floats your streaming boat. For me (with young kids) I prefer to keep the number of remotes required down to a bare minimum. That said I am sure the TV is great otherwise in terms of pq.
'effortless access to steaming content with PANASONIC's my Home Screen 5.0 operating system.'; do they may access to games platforms or should it have read streaming?
I always take the approach of buying a telly to be dumb but to connect smart devices to it. That way you can keep up to date with the latest versions of apps even beyond the timeline when the TV stops updating, makes the TV last longer before coming obsolete

Got the hx800 in the 40" and the marketing of this TV is ridiculous. The cinematic Hollywood picture they tell you about is awful, totally lifeless and dull. Gotta play about with the settings to achieve a more vibrant, punchy picture which is actually excellent for the money, especially from an edge lit TV.
Are you sure it was this same model and size? I paid £549 for the 50" one a couple of months ago from Richer Sounds. That was only because I got a price match. They were selling it reduced for £599. The 65" one wouldn't have been £500. (confused)
I was thinking the same thing, maybe the hx580b, but not the hx800b.
Yup, still one of the best tvs ever sold. I got one in early 2017 for a steal. I won't replace until it dies. Air in a can is good for the fans.
I bought DX902 from RicherSound in 2016. Still using it. Picture quality is amazing. Only issue is fans noise. It has few fans to keep the heat level low. The fans make noise.
Agree with this seen many people get pulled into the Hoover/Hotpoint 10 year parts warranty con. The parts are free over the 10 years but the cost of fitting them which is only allowed to be done by their engineers is around £150 per visit.
Rubbish AfterCare,Really Poorly Manufactured, Designed to BreakDown, Extortionate Pricing For Repairs, Parts Take an Age to Arrive then come Damaged You will be without a Machine for 6 Weeks, Not worth the Hassle, Stay Well Away.
Hi Toptrumpet, Thank you for your post, I have to agree that the D energy rating doesn't look like a positive, but the D Energy Rating is on the new Energy Label scale and is actually above average for a washer dryer in comparison. For example if you were to put the D Energy Rating on the old style Energy Labels it would be the equivalent of around the A-A+ mark. Kind regards Hughes
Wowwww £899 is a steal for literally one of the absolute best TV’s on the market
Will JL price-match this do you think as then you can get the burn-in cover that is only offered by them.
RS doing CX for £1048 at present. Their BX stock has almost run out. 3 left nationwide. They have 52 stores. June seems about right month for these to go EOL.New models will be in most stores now. I think i will delay my purchase for 1-2 years. The old tv still going well. Plus unsure on reliability on these new sets be it LG or Samsung.
Specs seem amazing. Just needs to be that bit bigger for our living room. 65" minimum
I think that's because Panasonic pulled out of selling in the USA and Canada a few years ago.
A bit late to the discussion but for TVs, www.rtings.com is the non-plus ultra. There is no one else doing better reviews. The downside the Panasonic is i think not popular in Canada (where they are based) and thus never get reviewed :(
You literally wrote "never trust which reviews. They to aey are paid to promote. This was in response to an answer asking for a comparison of the LG oleds in comparison to this. You did not say be all and end and neither did my post which was intended to be helpful not dismissive.
Literally never said this. At all. I said don’t trust Which reviews as the be all and end all.
I think because AG9 was master series it may be better set up but seriously I had to adjust setting based on app and it was just annoying as sometimes it varied per programme as well. Don't get me wrong it was a good TV and if I didn't have them side by side I would have been happy with the A8 but the Panasonic was just better. If I remember correctly the Dolby Vision presets were slightly better on the Sony but Dolby Vision Vivid on the Panasonic was great at popping even though it was arguably over saturated. One thing were me and my wife picked up that the Panasonic was markedly better was watching HD Simpsons/Family Guy. The Panasonic had crisp lines/colours with proper block colours. The Sony had subtle breaks in the lines/colours which wasn't intrusive but it was that help us made our decision. Obviously the sound from the Sony was better.
