Panasonic TX-40CS520B review

 

The Panasonic Viera TX-40CS520 is one of the cheaper 40-inch Smart TVs on sale, but we feel that there have been too many cuts in its capability. In particular, with just 2 HDMI ports, there's a real risk that this will turn out to be be a false economy.

We very much liked the 40-inch Panasonic TX-40CS620B, but we're less impressed by the cut-price CS520. The loss of a HDMI port could be a real problem, especially since the price difference isn't that great. Add to that the lower motion clarity, and...

Panasonic TX-40CS520 review

 

Best 40-46in TV under £500, Awards 2015. Great picture quality at a good price, this TV is an absolute steal...

Lots of detail, clarity and punch ; Well-judged colour balance ; Strong contrast ; Good sound ; Great selection of on demand and catch up apps ; Easy to use

A bit slow in between menus and apps

A wonderfully appealing 40in screen for a great price – it’s one of the best TV deals of the year

Panasonic TX-40CS520B

 

Just bought this today - picture clarity is appalling! When people are moving the picture cannot keep up. This is even worse when playing back from SkyPlus. Don't buy this model! We always buy Panasinic Vieras - what a disappointment.

The picture and sound are very good, not so good is the fact that the set up instructions are not very clear. After putting in the wi-fi code it doesn't tell you what to do next! In fact you just press the return button then it's plain sailing. I am...

Very clear picture. Excellent sound quality. Big enough so that everyone has a good view but doesn't dominate the room.

Excellent Television

 

" I wanted a reasonably priced tv which was thin but provided a good picture and sound with ample connectivity ports. This one fitted the bill and so far has done what it said on the box. "

Great TV

 

" Bought as a replacement for our old Panasonic that lasted many years. Once set-up and the picture settings adjusted the picture is fantastic on HD feeds, the sound is more than adequate for our living room in general viewing but I might invest in a...

Panasonic TX-40CS520B

 

It loses the wifi connection every day. You have to unplug the power cable and reconnect each day, and then it will remakes the connection. Odd. And very very irritating.
