Panasonic TX-55HZ1000B Design
Panasonic has a very stylish and modern design which is well known for its good reputation for excellent designs.
The stand is unconventional, as it rotates and is only about 39 cm wide. This is very good as it allows you to place it anywhere in your room, and it also includes a piece of furniture to stand on.
Philips 55 OLED 805 feet give it a footprint of 80cm wide, while the LG CX base is over 90cm wide.
One of the advantages that the screen includes is that it combines a low profile with a fairly long neck.
The panel section is very thin; In the back, it was also vaccinated from it, which is a container or a place that includes all the group’s handling devices, connections and amplifiers.
As we know OLED roughly takes this approach (the exceptions are the high-end LG, ‘Wallpaper’ and ‘Rollable’ models) but, by covering nearly two-thirds of the back of the range and taking the overall depth measurement to 5.8 cm, Panasonic is larger than most.
Panasonic products are known for their well-known reputation in terms of TV picture performance, and they don’t taint the writing here. The images are sharp, convincing and deceptive.
In addition to the grainy black, common on all OLED models, brilliant shadow detail and subtle color accuracy, there is a level of pop in the HZ1000’s photos that is tempting. It’s the kind of screen you want to watch, even if you don’t care what it’s showing.
The HZ1000 screen features a distinct and diverse set of image presets that cover most content situations whether dynamic, cinema, normal, filmmaker, real cinema, custom, professional 1 & 2 and sports.
In addition to several Dolby Vision HDR variants – the variants are of high resolution.
And if you want to run the settings as hard as you like, you can easily do so.
The dynamic leaves things saturated in a way that can be known.
The big news here is the inclusion of Filmmaker Mode with Smart Sensing – a native concept from Panasonic – and Dolby Vision IQ, unlike other competing apps.
When it comes to the HZ1000’s physical connections. It has four HDMI ports, two USBs, headphone and optical outputs, satellite and antenna sockets – but HDMIs are a bit behind the times.
While full HDMI 2.1 certification is still disappointingly rare, the features of HDMI 2.1 are becoming increasingly common and yet Panasonic does less than many of its competitors.
What I liked about it is that it looks very straightforward and is especially good at presenting dialogue. There is also a pronounced lightness in sound delivery and an excellent degree of low-level dynamic fidelity, which is particularly good at conveying emotions in the sound while watching any scene, for example, dramatic or romantic.
In my view, it lacks best-in-class weight, size and room, and feels a bit stiff when pushed into large sizes.
But in the end, what we always care about is the sound, the sound is more suitable for daily television than for movie night, and I recommend that anyone who buys the HZ1000 have a dedicated sound system.
One of my favorite auditions on Netflix is Wonder Woman. The cinematography in that movie is rich and vibrant.
When the pig captures scenes of violence and beating, the details are impressive and clear.
The heavy-lift handling here is the latest iteration of the Panasonic HCX Pro Intelligent Processor, and it doesn’t get stuck.
Global HDR support, covering HDR10, HDR10 +, Dolby Vision, HLG and HDR Photo, a modern standard that allows photographers to take advantage of HDR TV screens.
The overall HDR performance is great, as when we measured the HDR peak at around 870cd / m2 (also known as nits), with the HDR brightness window at 5 percent, the picture was super beautiful and vivid.
As for the color performance on that screen, it is commendable from my point of view,
as the screen was tuned by Hollywood expert Stefan Sonnenfeld, whose biography
includes widely known films such as Wonder Woman and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Panasonic supports any trick, as it supports comprehensive HDR, excellent highlighting performance and shadow detail, as well as Smart Sensing and Dolby Vision IQ that ensure superb, ultra-clear images.
The Panasonic TX-55HZ1000B is an impressive design, features and equipment.
It is very balanced in its delivery: rugged, it has a great color screen but is natural, sharp but not overrated, vibrant but controlled.
It’s a little bit of a shame because we’d love to see some of HDMI’s more advanced features. Also, the remote control accompanying the screen is not suitable for a TV of this quality as well, its design is very normal and simple and does not match the quality and price of the screen
From my point of view, this one is one of the best TVs you can buy today. If you are in the market for a premium OLED, you should buy this one.
