The HX800 is Panasonic's eagerly awaited mid-range LED LCD TV for 2020. While it doesn't exactly match up to the brand's flagship OLEDs, it still manages to pack in premium features. It has a 4K (3,840 x 2,160) VA-type LCD panel that's LED edge-lit and a 60Hz refresh rate. Like the GX800, it also supports all four mainstream HDR formats and uses a Panasonic HCX picture processor.

Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
Panasonic HX800 series is part of the brand's 2020 edge-lit LED TV range. The 58-inch model had an RRP of £999/€999, but this has now fallen to around £700. HDMI spec is unapologetically v2.0, but we do benefit from ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode), which automatically switches in the Game preset when a console is detected. Freeview Play tuner comes with all the main TV catch-up services built-in.

Pros[**]
  • Smart edge-lit design
  • Dolby Vision and HDR10+ compatibility
  • Good HDR performance
Cons[**]
  • Not as bright as some rivals

Reviewers from Whathifi have found the following[***]:
The TX-58HX800B is an attractive, near-black TV with a brushed metal central plinth stand, a minimal bezel and a super-thin 65mm panel. We watch Deadpool in 4K HDR and as our anti-hero skewers a black-shirted henchman on twin katanas, each differently lit fold of the bad guy's clothing is expertly textured. Panasonic's edge-lit LEDs still sometimes leak a bit of light close to the edge of the frame and the whole panel could be a little better shielded from its light source.

Pros[**]
  • Super-thin, near-black panel
  • Excellent HDR performance
  • Excellent contrast and contrast
Cons[**]
  • Edge lighting can be difficult to see
