Panasonic TX-50CX680B review

 

The Panasonic Viera TX-50CX680B is a 50-inch UHD (4K) TV with a smart design and excellent picture quality - thanks to Panasonic's "Super Bright" LED display technology. It also comes with Panasonic's latest Firefox Smart TV system. Now that the price...

As good as the CX680B undoubtedly is, it's hard not to compare it with the CX700B, especially since there's hardly any difference in the price of the two models.

Panasonic TX-50CX680

 

The 50CX680 is a 50-inch 4K UHD TV from the lower end of Panasonic's current range. This means it doesn't get the full suite of 4K Studio Master processing tools found higher up the range, and so presumably won't be able to fly quite so close to...

Superb contrast and colour for the money ; Attractive, easy-to-use smart system ; Lots of video streaming and catch-up TV app support

Motion handling could be better ; The screen's a bit reflective ; Minor backlight flaws if you're not careful with setup

Panasonic TX-50CX680B

 

Excellent television. HOWEVER if you plan to use a youview or bt box for recording and playback you will need to use Scart cables instead of hdmi as Panasonic tv's do not recognise the audio codec and you'll get picture but no sound. Using a scart...

Panasonic Viera TX-50CX680B

 

Easy to set up and use. Lovely rich, detailed picture in HD and 4K, with great black levels. Nice selection of apps with a decent selection of 4K content to choose from.

As with all flatscreen TVs the sound isn't amazing, but it's respectable and one of the better examples.

Panasonic Viera TX-50CX680B

 

The 4k resolution makes even normal HD look far superior to a regular HD TV. The colours are brilliant and there is a set up menu which allows you to fine tune all the settings to your own taste. It's also easy to get online with it from your own...

The sound quality from the in-built speakers could be a lot better, and no matter how much you try to fine tune the sound, it's still a strange kind of tinny. You do get used to it, but if you have a sound bar, no problem. Also the internet navigation...

It's a smart 4k TV and does what it says and it has a TV remote app (good for messing with people)

TV remote is terrible the layout is all wrong the apps crash so you'll need to turn the TV off and on and constantly needing channel updates
