About this deal

The What Hi-Fi? team has more than 100 years of experience reviewing, testing, and writing about consumer electronics. Information of the number of pixels in a unit of length. With the decrease of the display size and the increase of its resolution, the pixel density increases.

Information about whether there is a possibility for wall mounting according to the VESA Mounting Interface Standard (MIS). There is a slightly cloudy look that can sometimes appear with shots and scenes that contain a bold mixture of very bright and very dark content, as the local light controls wrestle with achieving the best balance of local contrast and HDR brightness, but this is fairly rare and subtle enough to not be a major distraction.

Terms & Conditions

Whether it was Blade Runner 2049 and No Time to Die, to TV shows The Book of Boba Fett and Slow Horses or Foo Fighters horror film Studio 666, the Panasonic TX-65LZ2000B delivered a balanced, controlled and accurate picture. Skin tones are particularly impressive; whether it's Daniel Craig’s bronzed body in the latest Bond or Gary Oldman’s pallid complexion in Slow Horses, everything just looked right on the Panasonic. Information about the maximum vertical viewing angle, within which the image on the screen is of acceptable quality. The energy efficiency class/label provides general idea about the power consumption. There are different energy efficiency classes and each sets its own requirements regarding the power consumption. Some of the existent energy efficiency classes are A+++, A++, A+, A, B, C, D, E, F, G.

The ratio between the horizontal and the vertical side of the display. Some of the standard and widely used aspect ratios are 4:3, 5:4, 16:9 and 16:10. The most widely used panels are those with 6, 8, and 10 bits for each of the RGB components of the pixel. They provide 18-, 24-, and 30-bit color, respectively. The Sony A80L is the TV surprise of the year. It's based on 'traditional' OLED technology (i.e. it's not a QD-OLED or MLA model) so we broadly thought we knew what to expect, but it stunned us during our extensive test by offering a picture performance with a near-perfect balance of the spectacular and the subtle. It sounds good by TV standards, too, and the feature set will be strong enough for all but the most hardcore of gamers. Information about whether the stand can be dismounted. Usually, this is required for wall mounting.The pixel pitch shows the distance from the centers of two neighboring pixels. In displays, which have a native resolution (the TFT ones, for example), the pixel pitch depends on the resolution and the size of the screen. In fact, our testers found that it offers the most spacious soundstage available on a TV’s inbuilt speakers, beating even the Sony A95K we compared it against. The C3 retains the elegant design of the C2 but adds a new processor for even better visuals and more advanced audio upmixing. The webOS 23 operating system is simpler than last year's version too, and easier to navigate, and it brings a more sophisticated Game Optimiser menu complete with a dedicated sound sub-menu. One more apparent downgrade of note is the Q60T’s picture processor. Last year, Samsung equipped its 6-series TVs with a Quantum Processor 4K. This year, the Q60T uses a Quantum Processor Lite. To get a Quantum Processor 4K in a Samsung 2020 TV, you’ll have to go for a Q70T or above. To top it off, Samsung has stripped out one HDMI input since last year, leaving the Q60T with only three HDMI 2.0 ports. At least the Q60T supports eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel), which allows you to pass high-quality audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X to a soundbar or surround sound system.

If you want a 65-inch TV but don’t fancy a separate sound bar or speaker system then the Panasonic TX-65LZ2000B is the one to get. While its giant speaker bar isn’t exactly subtle, we found its inbuilt audio system is one of the best we have experienced during our tests, with it offering truly impressive Atmos virtualisation.Watching Unbroken the audio held a true sense of direction as the fighter jets strafed across the screen. We were equally impressed with how it handled Blade Runner 2049 with Joi’s disembodied voice in K’s apartment being entirely spatially separated from K’s own voice, creating a wonderfully immersive home cinema experience. Testing a TV is a long and complex process because a modern TV simply does so much. Not only does it need to handle a variety of content resolutions – standard-definition, 1080p, 4K and sometimes 8K – and both standard dynamic range and high dynamic range (the latter in a number of formats), all of which need to be specifically tested, is also has a sound system with various advanced settings and a full smart platform. A TV is an all-in-one device in the best sense, but that also makes it a challenging review proposition.
