" ...  As you can see the black levels in the attached image . ... Its outstanding contrast . ... I was using "Normal" picture setting for increased brightness but after changing the picture mode to "Cinema" I can experience the best black levels and stuck on with it now. ... Tinkering the picture settings is a bit risky because if you don't have the patience of getting the desired output by changing one by one then I would suggest you to stick on with the predefined calibrated setting. ... To me the "Cinema" setting outputs the best picture quality with best black levels.  ...  "

" ...  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. ... The photo attached is in cinema mode , 4k video on YouTube.  ...  "

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.  ...  "
