Panasonic TX-65DX902B User Review

  • JunoFirst
    Great colour poor software
    Review of Panasonic TX-65DX902B LED LCD TV by JunoFirst, Mar 5, 2017.
    Had this tv a week.
    Great neutral colour.
    HDR good on blue ray (UB700) & some demos but not Samsung demos.
    Gaming lag ok.
    Great local dimming & amazing contest bar small bright objects which is to be expected from a FALD.
    Not noticed LCD smear on my 58" but there is a bright vertical line an inch thick a quarter in from the right which can be seen in mid tone panning scenes.
    No DTS unlike every other TV.
    Sometimes apps suffer from audio drop outs with optical 5:1 & removing ext recording HDD can fix this.
    If pass Dolby 5:1 audio through this TV from a console there is a 1 second audio delay with no compensation in menu.
    No YouTube HDR.
    On-board H.265 player is faulty & can't play half the HEVC videos thrown at it.

    Great TV but need a good amp with multiple digital inputs as the digital audio out from this TV is terrible & no DTS... What were they thinking.
    Also need a good external H.265 HDR video player, plus with smart HDR apps as the audio out from this TV can't be trusted.

    I highly recommend the DX902 if you also have a good amp & video/smart player due to Panasonic failing on the software side & will likely fail in their 2017 range too.
    This item was purchased for £1749 from Currys in 2017. The reviewer still owns this product.
