Panasonic 58DX802B 58″ THX Certified 100Hz Active 3D, UHD 4K, HDR TV, Freesat and Soundbar £799 John Lewis

Get This Deal

Okay, it may getting on for nearly 2 years old but where can you find a THX Certified 58″ 4k HDR, Active 3D, Twin Freesat, Twin Freeview/Play, 100Hz Native Panel for £800?

The stand may not suit us all but a £30 Universal VESA pedestal will solve that, or it’s perfect for wall mounting.‌ Soundbar at 40W is still superior to most built in TV speakers, of course it doesn’t match a separate bar with subwoofer, any serious AV enthusiast will already have or consider a decent audio system.

Decent spec panel that has THX Cinema and professional “out of the box” calibrated modes, 100Hz native panel makes it perfect for films, sport and gaming; there’s also a “Game Mode” which speeds up response time massively by deactivating background processing but crucially preserves HDR which many others switch-off, making it a natural choice for Xbox One X or PS4 Pro,,,

One important thing I unearthed is about Freeview Play, which is governed and licensed by Freeview not the TV Brand, iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4, Demand 5 apps are integral to the structure so can never disappear like many TVs/devices over few years old… unless that channel goes bust!

lastly I always believe weight is a good measure of build-quality, it weighs in at 22.5Kg, how does that compare to similar 55″ offerings?
