    Panasonic HXW944: Extended 4K HDR television

    Jorn. Televisie specialist. | 4 February 2021 | In the version: 55 inches | 100 Hz | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Colorful and detailed images
    • Wide viewing angle
    • Smooth display of fast images
    • No very deep black display

    The HXW944 is Panasonic's best LED television of 2020, and that is clearly noticeable in the image quality. The TV shows a detailed color reproduction and has a wide viewing angle. This Panasonic produces impressive images, especially for fast action films with HDR support. The TV does not have really deep black values, but the contrast is good enough to fully display HDR images.

    Minimalist and beautiful design
    The HXW944 is a simply designed television. The feet are made of plastic and don't feel too sturdy. Still, the TV stands firmly on the furniture after I have installed it. At the back of the feet are small plastic clips with which I neatly hide the cables behind the TV. I cover the entrances with a plastic panel, so that the back of the TV looks even.

    Beautiful color reproduction, large viewing angle
    When I view HDR images, I see a lot of color details in clear images, for example in a blue sky or a grass field. The contrast and black values are unfortunately a bit less, so that color details in shadows are hardly noticeable. This is probably also because the screen is an IPS panel. This panel reduces the contrast, but the big advantage is that it increases the viewing angle. This way I also see a clear and colorful image when I sit at the side of the TV. This is especially useful if you regularly watch TV with a larger group of people.

    Great sound
    The sound of the HXW944 offers little special, but is certainly suitable for versatile TV use. Voices sound clear, and when you watch action movies or listen to music, the sound is clear enough to get everything. However, the sound distorts somewhat when I turn up the volume.

    Classic remote control and nice smart menu
    The remote control of the HXW944 looks a bit classic. It is quite large and has a multitude of buttons. Still, it feels good in the hand. Because the buttons are fairly large, the remote control is easy to use. With the 'My App' button I have a shortcut to an app of my choice, so that I can easily stream my favorite series. The most used apps are immediately available on the My Home Screen smart menu of this Panasonic TV. This menu is a row of apps at the bottom of the screen, which looks stylish. The interface responds quickly and smoothly, and is pleasant to scroll through.

    A nice TV with good picture quality

    Berry Asselman | 14 September 2020 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Good image quality
    • number of HDMI connections
    • Design
    • Manual
    • 100 Hz
    • Sound with speech good, but not optimal
    • no cable duct for the power cord on the leg as with larger model

    I must say that I am a Panasonic enthusiast. I have looked around a lot, such as the Philips Performance series. Which has more gadgets, but I still went for the Panasonic. The Panasonic TVs I've had and still have been running for over 13 years, one itself 16 years. I hope this one lasts as long. I chose the format because it is large enough and I thought a 49 inch was really too big in the living room and less sharp.

    The settings are easy to adjust with the supplied remote control, but we do most with the KPN remote control. That's why it's nice that it's a Smart TV, but Netflix, Amazon Prime and YouTube are also just in the box at KPN. So we won't be using it much. Just like browsing... preferable via a tablet or laptop.

    You should not expect much from it in terms of sound. sounds rather dull / has little depth, even if you adjust the bass and the like differently with the built-in equalizer. However, the music setting also sounds best with speech. You do get used to it, but if you connect it to an installation for music and then switch back, you really hear a big difference. Most will therefore need a Soundbar if this bothers them.

    But as TV a good choice.

    Nice television with many options

    HS1970 | 13 December 2020 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • very nice image
    • Good sound
    • Connection options
    • Easy to set up
    • Remote control

    We switched from Samsung to Panasonic for the first time. We don't regret it at all.
    This TV is really great, great picture and a very nice sound.
    No lag / stutter when watching fast images (e.g. football).
    The options are and the settings are easy to change.
    We regret that we bought a slightly too small size. 55 inches could certainly have been done, but that does not detract from the quality of this Panasonic. Recommended!
    One minus point, the remote control. The buttons are too close together. But if that's all

    Highly recommended!
    • Very nice picture
    • sleek design
    • bright remote control
    • easily programmable
    • sound

    Very happy with this purchase, finally a smart TV. And you don't have to be very smart to operate this device because, for example, some apps are also pre-programmed. The only drawback, as appears with many "flat" TVs, is that you are actually almost obliged to purchase a soundbar if you want to equalize the level of the image with the level of the sound. The latter still lacks quite a bit of depth, while you really get a cinema feeling when watching, at least with the 49 inch that is now hanging on the wall. Point of attention: make sure that your Ziggo Box is compatible with this purchase. Mine also turned out to be a bit outdated (it also said upc, ha!) but that too was quickly resolved in a few days. Very satisfied!

    Good size, clear and sharp image

    Our room is too small for an OLED TV, luckily this Panasonic is also razor sharp. Sound is difficult for me to judge, because we have connected a JBL speaker, but it also works well without that box. Easy to operate, nice clear picture.

    TV with the latest technology, you notice that in everything
    • latest technology
    • perfect image, thanks to many possibilities.
    • very good sound thanks to Dolby Atmos

    As is used to from Panasonic, the image is simply very good, partly due to the many tuning options. This Panasonic TV provides a beautiful picture in 4K or HDR, such as Netflix, for example. The TV will automatically adjust the best quality. Also through my Apple TV the image is warm and super clear. I now have a true cinema at home. Great to watch movies!
    The sound is very good due to Dolby Atmos, among other things, it gives a full and deep sound.
    Unlike other brands, the operation of this Panasonic is very simple, which is a big plus for me. You can easily adjust the sound or image to your own wishes.
    You notice from everything that the latest technology in this TV is again a major step forward.
    And which is of course also not unimportant: it has a luxurious design appearance, partly due to the beautiful narrow black edge around the TV.
    I had quite high expectations of this TV in advance, but these have also been amply fulfilled by Panasonic. In my opinion, this TV is an absolute must.

    A must for those who want top quality !!!

    The switch from our former Samsung TV to Panasonic is a direct hit.
    Image refresh rate of 100 Hz with a 43-inch format is unique and is only offered by Panasonic.
    Now you can enjoy films and series much more than before because you are, as it were, fully involved in the actions.
    Sports events are once again quite an experience. Although the TV does not have QLED technology, it matches the image quality of such devices.

    Perfect TV with a razor-sharp image, attractively priced.
    • 100 Hz, so a smooth image
    • Brilliant colors
    • Very sharp contrast
    • Installed like this
    • Very good value for money

    This is a perfect TV. Before this we also had a Panasonic for 15 years, say the first flat screen TV. Indestructible, but we wanted a somewhat large statue. Despite the fact that I was hounded by Oled and Qled (not 100 HZ) and the tests of the Consumers' Association, we ended up on this device in consultation and on the advice of the Cool Blue seller. And we don't regret that. If you want an excellent TV for € 800, you can buy it without a doubt. Do not be discouraged by the results of the Consumers' Association, but go and see for yourself.
