Panasonic has a garland of new TVs for 2018. We’ve already seen a poetic flagship OLED models during CES 2018, though now it’s time to demeanour during a some-more wallet-friendly LED LCD models, that guarantee a good 4K HDR knowledge during a some-more affordable cost point.
First adult is a Panasonic FX750 (FX780 in Europe), that is graphic above. It sits directly next a Panasonic FZ950 and FZ800 OLEDs, and aims to be a apex of 4K and HDR on an LED screen. It shares a reward OLED models’ Hollywood Cinema Experience (HCX) processor, that has been tuned with a capitulation of veteran studio colourists.

4K and HDR is to be approaching during this level, though Panasonic is ancillary a HDR10+ essence of energetic metadata. That can optimise a high energetic operation opening stage by scene, that isn’t probable with a customary HDR10 format. Amazon Prime Video is a believer of HDR10+, along with 20th Century Fox.
The new ‘super splendid panel’ promises to be some-more fit than ever and 20% brighter than final year’s models. Motion should be good, too – a FX750 boasts a estimate rate of 2200Hz, and there’s a 4K Game Mode for quick response times even in HDR.
Being a reward model, a FX750 also advantages from Panasonic’s ‘Art Interior’ propagandize of pattern quirks. This year that means this LED LCD tries to obey a OLED look: a one-sheet potion extraneous with a minimalist executive plinth. This indication will be accessible in 49, 55, 65 and 75 inches.
One step down is a Panasonic FX740 (above), disdainful to Currys in a UK. It is accessible during 49, 55 and 65 inches. This looks to be roughly matching to a FX750, despite with darker steel elements. It has a same far-reaching colour progression and HDR support, as good as a same potion exterior. The pivotal disproportion is a estimate rate has forsaken from 2200Hz to 1600Hz, and it doesn’t have a HCX processor.
The Panasonic FX700 (above) sits next that. This is a line between reward and midrange – we keep a 1600Hz estimate rate though remove a imagination aesthetics. There’s reduction glass, some-more metal. The executive plinth has been transposed with apart feet. They’re ‘switchable’, that means we can pierce them from a corners of a TV to a centre, in box we have a smaller AV rack. This indication is accessible during 49, 55 and 65 inches.
The ‘entry-level’ indication indication is a Panasonic FX600 (above). This has a same switchable pattern as a FX700, though a estimate rate drops to 1300Hz. Unusually for a lower-end model, a FX600 is armed with adaptive backlight dimming. This indication is accessible during 43, 49, 55 and 65 inches.
