ABOUT THIS TV

Panasonic TH-55LX950 400x400 Image Panasonic TH-55LX950

Launched in the year 2022, the TH-55LX950 is a 55" 4K TV from Panasonic. It comes with a 10-bit IPS panel.

It can display a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 80 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important specification of a display is its Color Reproduction, which is defined by its color gamut specification.

Panasonic has not provided a color gamut specification for this TV. So we have to take a guess. Now, since the TV features a big 55 inch screen, it won't come with a cheap panel, so here we can assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 90-100% or above. The color quality on this TV should be Lifelike! Meaning it is capable of producing color accurate images.

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

Color gamut spec of a TV indicates the range of colors that it can produce.

A TV with poor color reproduction will produce washed out colors that will spoil the immersion.

It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few.

But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Now, after color gamut, the static contrast of a TV also impacts its picture quality.

What is Static Contrast ratio ?

A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep enough blacks and possibly bleed backlight as in the below image:

Backlight bleed exampleThe image is an example of another display, it is not this one

The static contrast ratio of above TV is rated 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. More the better.

Also note, static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will show both dark gray and black as black, so lesser detail overall.

If given a choice, always prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.

This TV features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., good enough to display deep blacks. For the record, it also comes with local dimming technology which is a plus.

HDR10, HDR10+, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), Dolby Vision, Dolby Vision IQ and HDR10+ Adaptive are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.

As for brightness, it is capable of producing a peak luminance of 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Edge LED.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV only for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specs. But if you are also going to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.

Sadly, Panasonic did not specify the input lag on this unit. Now, as this is not a cheap TV, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.

Understanding Input lag and response time

This lag is the amount of time at which your key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the screen. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

But ideally, get a TV that features an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The TV measures 55 inches vertically and 48.46 inches horizontally. It is just 2.24 inches thick.

In total the TV weighs approximately 22.5 KGs including its stand. Without stand, it weighs 19.0 KGs.

Speaking of ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 300 x 300 mm is provided for wall-mounting. However, there is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support on this TV.

Hardware and Audio

The Operating System on this TV is my Home Screen 7.0.

For display connectivity, there are two HDMI 2.0 ports, one AV Composite In 3.5 mm jack port and two HDMI 2.1 ports on this TV.

For connecting USB devices, it includes 2x USB 2.0 (max 0.5 A) and 1x USB 3.0 (max 0.9 A). Other connectivity ports include — 1x Cable/Antenna In (F-type female) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

Wireless connectivity options on this TV include Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth and DLNA.

Speaking of speakers, it is packaged with 2 x 15W built-in speakers.

As for power consumption, it consumes 328 watts on average and 0.5 watts on standby.

For powering this unit, you'll require an 220 V - 240 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz outlet.
