Reviewers from techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The HZ1000 runs Panasonic's My Home Screen smart TV platform, now in its 5th-generation. Regular HD SDR, be it from streaming apps or Blu-ray, as well as native 4K content look supremely sharp and colour rich. Motion handling, via Panasonic's Smooth Motion Drive Pro and Intelligent Frame Creation technology, is extremely good and shows minimal artifacting. The TX-65HZ1000, reviewed here, sells for around £2,399, with the TX-55HZ 1000 available for £1,999.

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Panasonic HZ1000 boasts a similar feature set to the HZ1500 and HZ2000 OLEDs but drops some of the higher picture and sound specs to make it more affordable. The much-touted Filmmaker Mode disables a TV's processing to reflect the original intent of a film or TV show. Panasonic's move towards Dolby Vision in 2019 meant it racked up all the HDR variants (including HLG Photo)

Panasonic TX-55HZ1000B is the first model we've tested from the company's 2020 OLED range. It has the same HCX Pro Intelligent Processor as last year's GZ950 and GZ2000. It also has the latest version of LG's OLED panel and Panasonic's new Smooth Motion Drive Pro. Panasonic has also joined LG in offering Dolby Vision IQ on its 2020 OLEDs.
