      Steve, I know it's not a direct comparison as you reviewed the 55 inch version, but in your opinion how does the EX750B compare to the Sony XE8596, which is considerably cheaper?

      I preferred the XE85 in terms of general performance and especially price.

      Panny made a real mess of the EX750 launch, selling it alongside the far superior 902, for months, and more expensive! Crazy.

      Good to see the reintroduction of 3D I can’t why they dropped it in the first place! :thumbsdow

      Let’s hope other manufacturers follow suit.

      It's not a re-introduction, it's just a hold-over from last year. There won't be any 3D TVs next year.

      @Steve Withers in the review you say 'when watching actual content like football at 25p, streaming content at 50p and film content at 24p, the motion seemed fine' But it struggled on a 'Moving plate' test...

      this seems pretty unfair to place 'Motion handling poor' in the negative column as who sits at home staring at Moving plates??

      Also is it a native 10bit panel?

      I agree this TV is a bit in the wilderness. When I have seen them it seems the 50" Version has a point as it is at a good price point £899, has a smaller stand (with added lift function).

      The 65" seems an expensive beast

      Interesting, I've had the 50" for a few months and pretty much agree with the review regarding the excess green, the motion problems and very tight viewing angles horizontally so probably common to all sizes? Then I watch something like 'Blue Planet 2' and all is forgiven - amazing!
      Can't seem to access the 'Best Picture Settings' video ATM to see what to 'fiddle' with, it says I don't have permission........

      Actually, does anyone know why I can't access the 'Best Pictures Settings' video or why it seems to be dated 1970?? I see plenty of ads' so am not aware I'm blocking them.

      Thanks

      Because it is not for public consumption and hasn't been published yet. Will be available later next week.

      Hi Steve,

      Many Thanks for your excellent review, have been waiting a while now for this, but worth the wait.

      Just a few questions, if I may? I am trying to decide which tv to go for, this year’s 50EX750B or last year’s 50DX802B.

      I know it’s not a direct comparison, 65 inch EX750 reviewed here vs the 50 inch DX802 you reviewed last year, but I got to work with whatever information and reviews I can find.

      In your opinion how does this year's EX750B compare to last year's DX802B model in terms of picture quality, including black level performance and dark details with both SDR and HDR content?

      How effective is the local dimming (again compared to the 802b) in avoiding large vertical bands of light (if any) and the occurrence’s of haloing.

      In which of these two tv’s, were things like backlight bleed issues that result in bright edges and washed-out black bars, more apparent with both SDR and HDR content?

      Thank you very much for your time and help.

      Well it's been 18 months since I reviewed the DX802 but, based on my memory and a quick look at the original review, I think the two are very similar in terms of black levels, SDR performance and local dimming (no problems with vertical bands and minimal haloing). When it comes to HDR the DX802 is a bit brighter but the EX750 has a wider colour gamut, so six of one and half a dozen of the other there. However there was no issue with backlight bleed, bright edges or washed out black bars, partly because neither TV is that bright.

      Thank you very much Steve for your highly valued and quick response.
      Great stuff, thanks for putting my mind at ease.

      So the picture quality from the EX750 and DX802 should be very similar and hopefully i'll be getting a good picture with either TV then..... decisions, decisions....

      To throw in a curve ball, any quick thoughts on the picture quality and any haloing of the Sony XE8596 and XE9005 compared to the Panasonics? - Never gonna hear the end of it from my other half if I get it wrong this Christmas.....any input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much again.

      The XE8596 doesn't have local dimming, so no haloing, but overall a great picture for the money. The XE90 is definitely worth considering with its direct LED backlight and local dimming. However I really think you need to demo these TVs before you make a decision.

      My 47LW550T broke down on me a few days ago, and given its hard to come by a cheap 55C6V or 55E6V, I've had to go for the 50EX750 with active 3D. Managed to get Richer Sounds to price match Hughes at £789 though with a 6 yr warranty.

      I realise its not perfect, but given I can go no bigger than a 55", I thought it my best option if I wanted 3D right now.

      For crying out loud.. Richer Sounds have delivered me the vastly inferior 50EX700B instead of the 50EX750B.

      Not impressed.

      To Romolo, I can't really suggest a TV as I don't have the knowledge of many brands. I've always favoured Panasonic as I like the way they (usually) work and my ones have always been reliable, plus many of them have a 'free' 5 year guarantee. Having said that, this is the first Panasonic that doesn't do what I expect it to. If I use the (Panasonic) Hard Drive remote to switch on the Hard Drive Recorder the TV switches to the correct HDMI input as expected. When I switch off the Hard Drive the input is not released and I have to manually switch the TV back to show live TV. This is the first Panasonic TV that I've had work this way although my older Samsung did this too.
      Also, in the review it states there is an SD card slot, don't know if the 65" is different but my 50" doesn't have one, not that I can see anyway.
      And please, when is the settings video going to be released?

      Got to thank Richer Sounds customer service on my tv order problem (specifically their Operations Director). Really putting in the effort to sort me out.

      Unfortunately, this tv has the potential to be outstanding if calibrated well, but out of the box its greyscale lets it down and it needs weeks to months to properly settle in. The default settings when new are a disappointment, but get better over time.
      Steve's settings on my set just don't work. Running the test discs (Spears and Munsil and others) there is no reason to lower the brightness except to give the set some artificial 'pop' to the early age picture. Steve seems to have tried to make the best of his set, as it was at the time. Those settings on an aged set (mine's nearly 3 months old) are a big step backwards. I get the reduced green, but the last thing it needs is more blue.
      Overall, Blackwiggle on the discussion forum has made significant strides into a full calibration, which removes a major issue - massively overblown blue in the low ire.
      If I alter the settings on the tv, a blue cast appears and it washes out the picture somewhat, as it did when new. But leave it a few days and it recedes.
      It's a tv that requires calibration, and patience. It can be spectacular.

      Really hope someone can help me.

      While watching the TV do people realise one side brighter than the other with a line in the middle of the tv? And when is the HDR10+ update available?
