comment
" ...  Reviewing after three weeks of use : Picture quality is at par with brands like Sony and Samsung , 'no pixel-bleeding' or any sort of abnormalities in the screen , the user interface is very very simple and practical , hard drives work fast and smooth , Bluetooth connectivity is very fast and easy . ... I also have a Sony 4k 55" led and I found no issues with the picture quality of Panasonic compared with Sony (although overall qualitywise - hands down SONY is the best) but compare the cost difference (40,000/-) and keeping in mind Japanese heritage of Panasonic , I went for this one , and I'm pretty pleased with my investment.  ...  "

" ...  We don't have the infrastructure for 4k content yet . ... Not only HDR 10 + but this tv has HDR 10, HLG as well so I can definitely say you can use this tv for the next 10 years without scratching your heads. ... Works with Windows 10 @ 4k 60 Hz resolution. ... Amazon prime, Netflix, You tube all work in 4K 60 FPS with HDR ... True HDR 10, HDR 10+ and HLG. ... You can also convert normal input to HDR, HLG display output.  ...  "

" ...  Needless to mention that FHD and 4k movies played by in built amazon prime app is awesome. ... Overall a very good 4k tv with all the required features.  ...  "
comment
" ...  1) There are lot of algorithms that the TV uses to enhance your picture/video viewing quality to match 4K HDR10 rendering. ... Hence by default a frame rate enhancer is enabled which makes FHD appear as 4K. ... Remember as satellite TV consumers, most are are still at FHD content consumption. ... 5) I experienced stutter in screen mirroring when playing 4K videos on TV when the TV is Wifi connected.  ...  "

" ...  The pictures in HD mode were excellent . ... The sound in HD mode was little feeble as compared to SD mode .  ...  "
comment
" ...  Watching 4k pictures on Youtube, the quality is mindblowing. ... Though there isn't much Free 4K content available that is worth watching, but this TV is ready when needed. ... It nicely upscales 1080p and 720p content, has a nice frame rate, and the speakers are decent. ... It does an admirable job for SD channels as well. ... In summary, for the price, as a 4K UHD TV this Panasonic 55" is bang for the buck, but not the best smart TV features.  ...  "

Very bright panel that brings all the details in the black, including shadows. ... Could have been true 10 Bit panel (But for this cost, I don't have any complaints) ... You can also convert normal input to HDR, HLG display output. ... Bright areas a little more bright and color is more vibrant and the screen brightness is elevated.  ...  "
