      Thanks Mark. I just wish Panasonic would commit to bigger screen sizes rather than maxing-out at 65". Never-the-less, one to watch out for.

      Yes, this seems to be the best of the LCD bunch so far. Let's hope that it is not silly priced.

      If you use an external LUT system, you fill the table with values that are specific to the settings in place when the TV was measured. That is, you set brightness, contrast, etc., and then you run a measurement sweep to populate the table. However, if you subsequently change one of those TV settings (again, e.g., contrast), you have to do the whole thing again.

      These internal tables, they can't be like that, can they? If they were, they would only be valid for a narrow range of picture menu settings. So is this more about computational efficiency rather than unit specific metrics? I.e., you store values in the tables so that you don't have to repeatedly calculate them (as opposed to measure them).

      Thank you for keeping us all updated with such good and detailed articles. Nobody is as sharp and precise and I checked !!!
      Any chance the smaller 58 version could have the ultrahd stamp. Some people want bigger and other smaller :) to accommodate our places. The 65 seems to be the only focus here. More details appreciated on the 58 please. Thanks again for the good work and quality of articles.

      They managed to get the best TV last year and still the best this year so far, in the UK market at least.

      Not sure what you mean by disappoint. Tx40cs520 best TV under £500, Cx680 avforum best buy, cx680 5* what HiFi, cx700 5/5, cx802 - product of the year ert magazine, highly recommended by hdtvtest, 9/ 10 on trusted reviews, 9/10 on avforumd, 5* award what hifi, and I could carry on. Are all these reviewers wrong or are you just biased?

      I'm disappointed they don't have any OLED's, was hoping to see a reasonably priced one this year.
      After reading the LG threads, I'm not wanting to jump my plasma ship just yet, but had hoped to dip a 4K toe this year...Is there a chance Pany are waiting to reveal 2016 OLEDs at another show?

      Panasonic: 8000 point LUT to get a reference response for rec709.

      Hisense: rec709 is miles out but they ship it anyway.

      They could do at their European Convention event but it seems odd that we're out of sync with the US release so perhaps they'll wait until IFA, or even CES 2017, before announcing another.

      Short answer - I don't know!

      Panasonic are waiting until their European Convention to announce their full UK TV line-up, so all we got a change to see here at CES is the DX900 but it looked awesome. Panasonic held a special dark room demo where they compared it to a studio OLED monitor and a competitor's TV from last year and the results were very impressive. The DX900 will be out in the UK much sooner than people are probably expecting and at a price that I think is very competitive.

      Please explain? Don't understand what you meant. Are you saying hisense is not good at all in term of color fidelity?

      Looks Like the rest of the range will be announced at a later date as per Steve comments. Evidence from another discussion points towards more new sets. No info about smaller Oled yet

      3.5k and under I'll probably bite. Forbes article said it will be on sale in Europe by the end of January. I think that's optimistic.

      Can't see it being out before the European convention at the end of Feb, my money is on March and £3999 for the 65" (Panny have never been cheap...)

      I'm worried about the price of this, they surely though have to bear in mind oled prices and hisense prices, if this is significantly dearer than the flagship hisense or anywhere near this year's oled prices then I'll have to seriously reconsider buying this but if they can get the price right this could be the TV to get this year no doubt, shame no dolby vision HDR though

      Panasonic DX900 LED 4K UHD TV and UB900 4k...


      video up and running, although spring has been mentioned, some who were at the press conference, claim that panny said January release so they are first to the market. to me March seems more realistic...

      pricing guess
      £3,499 - 65"
      £2999.99 - 58"

      be nicer £500 less on each model though lol

      Thanks for this. Your list price seems about right. The 58 needs to be below £2k for me after usual manufacturer cash back. Hope Philips and hisense will come down hard so we have more options and a healthy competition.
      Your statement about HDR Dolby is interesting. The ultra HD spec doesn't cover truly Dolby HDR then. Must be hard to achieve as very high nits. I am happy with 1000 :)

      Yes, thats why my guess is a conservative one, but they do have lots competition, especially hisense... And anyone in the market fir a new tv, will likely look at this and the hisense range, so panny have to get the pricing right
