New article, new review in which we analyze one of the most recent releases of the Panasonic manufacturer, one of the historical realities of the electronic market and in our particular case of TV. The model we discover today is the Panasonic HX580 , available in four different sizes: 43, 50, 55 and 65 inches. Depending on your needs and domestic needs. As always, let’s first take a quick look at the product specifications we analyze today:
- Screen Resolution: UHD 4K
- Screen technology: LED
- HDR: Yes
- Internet and wifi: Yes
- USB ports: 2
- HDMI ports: 4
- Ethernet (LAN): 1
- Headphone output: 1
These are obviously just some of the many technical characteristics that define a real modern TV, but now without getting too lost in chatter let’s continue to analyze the technologies used in this product.
It obviously starts from the key to everything, namely the UHD 4K technology . Nowadays any television on the market cannot really do without it, if it wants to reach the most optimal standards. To support these wishes and needs, there is 4k HDR technology . As we could appreciate, thanks to the use of the HDR video format, there are important improvements in the image.
The whites are enhanced in their brightness, which is obviously balanced by the deep and full-bodied blacks. So no dull and dull colors, but only colors in their true essence.
All of this is obviously backed up by a processor worthy of the name. Panasonic, like any company, relies on its 4K Studio Color Engine. This particular processor should, according to what Panasonic itself declared, make the images that we see every day in the best movies or TV series more vivid. In our experience we can confirm that this intent is achieved, with surprising images and a particular fluidity of vision.
The technologies used in the image sector of this television do not end here. The other is in fact Dolby Vision . Without going into technical details that are not very useful for your final choice, Dolby Vision helps the adjustment of the various “metadata”, as they are called, to obtain greater performance. And even this intent would seem completely confirmed by our tests.
The audio sector of this television model, on the other hand, seems not perfect and indeed represents one of the sore points in our opinion. If in other models Dolby Vision technology has been included (as for the big sister HX600 ) which allows clear sounds and an exceptional 3D effect, in this product it is totally lacking. The audio is still good, but the change is noticeable compared to other models. As we often remember, the sound part of a television is as important as the video one, therefore it should never be neglected in your choice.
Like any self-respecting smart TV, the Panasonic HX580 also has all the requirements of a true “Smart”. In fact, as always, we find the classic various and infinite applications, downloadable or mostly already installed. We therefore have Netflix, PrimeVideo, Disney Plus, but also Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. You will certainly not lack the variety of choice.
Instead, continuing on the sore points of this Panasonic model, we focus on a prerogative that should characterize these televisions, namely compatibility with the most popular voice assistants. In fact, the Panasonic HX580 does not have any integration with Alexa or Google Assistant , the two most famous and used at the moment. This obviously greatly reduces the interest for all those who are always looking for new ways to improve the interconnection between appliances in a home.
This defect can generally be bridged with the purchase of special accessories, but in a modern television that wants to keep up with the times it is a very important lack and that affects the final choice of the most thirsty consumer of home automation technology.
