Product Overview

HX800 is a feature-rich 4K smart TV in Panasonic's 2020 lineup. Powered by an HCX Processor, it supports a broad range of audio and image processing protocols, including Dolby Vision, HLG Photo, and Dolby Atmos.
The HX800 also comes with local dimming backlighting, which improves contrast. The panel also covers a richer gamut than the lower-end options such as the HX600 and HX580.
Panasonic also markets the HX940, which has an even better processor and a faster refresh rate.

    The TX-58HX800 is Panasonic's latest 55-inch LED TV. It uses Panasonic's My Home Screen platform, now up to v5.0. It supports Netflix, YouTube and Brit Box, but no Disney+ as of yet. Images are capable of blistering detail, without looking over-emphasised or forced.

    Pros
    • Gorgeous OLED screen
    • Excellent picture quality

    Panasonic HX800 is a mid-range 4K LED LCD TV. Freeview Play tuner comes with all the main TV catch-up services built-in. Most of the key streaming giants are on-board, including Netflix, Prime Video, Rakuten, YouTube and Britbox. Only obvious heavy hitter not at the table is Disney+.

    Reviewers from whathifi have found the following***:
    There is an excellent amount of detail and it never looks false, noisy or over-sharpened. This Dolby Atmos-enabled TV is fitted with a pair of standard 10W speakers. The most obvious negative is that there isn't much weight to the sound. The only real sacrifice is that the mid-range is fairly unexciting.

    Pros
    • Excellent picture quality
    • Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision
    • Excellent motion handling
    Cons
    • Mid-range is unexciting
