Panasonic TX-55CX700E: test and review

Prices begin to fall seriously the side of Ultra HD TVs / 4K, and that, for all manufacturers. Proof once again with the Panasonic TX-55CX700E model 55-inch diagonal (140 cm) launched in 1200 euros, which is in the middle range of the brand. This does not prevent hyper-complete being.

Active 3D is there (without glasses though). Connectivity is provided (with 4 HDMI, 3 USB ports, one USB 3.0 port and a slot for memory cards), Wi-Fi n and Bluetooth 3.0 are integrated and multimedia many features.

Note that this TV runs on Firefox OS with a quad processor and obviously offers access to various applications and online services. It’s quite well done, but too limited for the moment.

The Panasonic TX-55CX700E do not forget the content sharing options with the mobile terminals, control and speech recognition via a smartphone or tablet, recording DTT in a USB external hard drive. The Japanese automaker TV also offers a broad multimedia compatibility. All is maybe not perfect for that side, but the device shows relatively flexible.

In terms of pure image quality, also difficult to blame him for anything. On demo loops Ultra HD (UHD) we referred to it, it was particularly convincing with generous colors and well nuanced definition that catches the retina and especially invigorating contrasts. With HD sources (Blu-ray and TNT), the record proved equally pleasant. The upscaling was effective, without generating too much noise. As for the general fluidity, it also remains satisfactory.

A small flat unfortunately the noise level, the integrated speaker system (2 x 10 watts) really is not convincing, whatever the used settings.
