- Panasonic 43HX600 ( 43 Inch )
- Panasonic 50HX600 ( 50 Inch )
- Panasonic 55HX600 ( 55 Inch )
- Panasonic 65HX600 ( 65 Inch )
In this review we see one of the latest Panasonic proposals just landed on the market. The model in question is the Panasonic HX600, available in four different sizes, each suitable for the most diverse needs. So let’s start as usual by checking the technical specifications of this product:
- Screen technology: LED
- Screen Resolution: UHD 4K
- HDR: Yes
- Internet and wifi: Yes
- USB ports: 2
- HDMI ports: 4
- Ethernet (LAN): 1
- Headphone output: 1
The following are just a handful of the technical features that a modern TV must have, but now let’s go into the details of the technology used in this product. 4K UHD technology has been on the market for some time now, making it reliable and valuable. To improve this is the 4K HDR technology , which we always notice with pleasure having bright whites and deep blacks. This is very appreciable, when looking at an image rich in blacks, seeing them as dirty grays (as often happens on some TVs) is certainly annoying.
To make this color so intense it clearly helps the TV processor, which is the 4K Studio Color Engine . This processor according to the factory data should precisely make the images bright, thanks to an improved color and fluidity of movements. In our experience this is obviously confirmed.
The other technology supporting images and colors is Dolby Vision . This allows you to optimize a whole series of data and specifications that matter little to you, but which contribute to improving all the typical characteristics of an image: color, contrast and brightness.
As we often say, even the audio of a modern television cannot be a secondary factor, but it must go hand in hand with image optimization. In this case, the technology involved is Dolby Atmos . This allows for a clarity in the sound that we can define as almost surprising from our point of view. In fact, the TV returns a rich and deep sound, which envelops you with a 3D effect.
Today’s TVs do not exhaust their entertainment in the simple classic TV channels of yesteryear, but must include a whole world of applications and possibilities. The Panasonic obviously is not far behind and in its Smart TV includes all the main most renowned applications. We have the classic streaming platforms like Netflix, PrimeVideo, Disney Plus, but also social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. Surely there is no lack of variety of options for those looking for a different entertainment.
A smart television does not limit its functions to a vast catalog of applications, but also in its compatibility and integrations with the rest of the house. In the increasingly widespread view of home automation, it is in fact important that a television be integrated into our home environment. Panasonic’s HX600 model allows the use of two of the main home voice assistants: Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa.
It will therefore be possible to browse the channels, turn the television on and off and perform many other functions simply with your voice and our voice assistant.
Another positive note of this TV series is their cost which makes them affordable for everyone with a decidedly performing product.
So let’s move on to our painful notes. As with any modern television, it is difficult to find faults, but they are mostly faults that in our opinion, if inserted, would have improved our audio visual entertainment experience. In the case of this Panasonic model, we immediately noticed the absence of Bluetooth , an element that can be very useful for interconnecting our various devices such as computers or phones through other methods.
