    Review of Panasonic TX-65DX902B LED LCD TV by Barcoing Mad, Apr 21, 2017.
    Owned this set for a few weeks now, and it replaces a 50" Panasonic GT something or other plasma from about five years ago. My other television is a JVC HD750 projector.

    A few potential problems have been mentioned in various reviews.

    (1) Dirty screen effect and/or banding

    Different things, but neither noticeable on my set. Possibly I've been lucky.

    (2) Viewing angle.

    Staying within 30 degrees, preferably 20 degrees of the screen perpendicular is a good idea, particularly as there is a tendency to sit closer to a UHD screen.

    (3) Motion handling. A low level of frame interpolation clears things up with a minimum of artefacts.
    Better than my projector. No plasma style paint-by-numbers collapse of bit depth.

    (4) Haloing. I've yet to watch the Martian on it, but I've yet to notice anything objectionable.

    This is the first time I've viewed HDR material. The greater dynamic range in association with very bright peak whites can look fantastic. It can also be unpleasant and blinding. I'm distracted by the searing brightness before I become annoyed by halos!

    The television does what it does to specification, and it's down to the film maker to provide an enjoyable image.
    This item was purchased for £2199 from Hughes, Norwich in 2017. The reviewer still owns this product.

    Pros

    • Good black levels
    • Good colour out of the box (warm2 setting)
    • Good range of controls in menu
    • Netflix app works well. Appears to display at correct refresh rates. Amazon not quite so good - occasional stutter

    Cons

    • No deal breakers.
