ABOUT THIS TV

Panasonic TH-65LX900Z 400x400 Image Panasonic TH-65LX900Z

The TH-65LX900Z is a 65 inch 4K TV from Panasonic, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a 10-bit IPS panel. The maximum resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a pixel density of 68 ppi.

Picture Quality

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

Panasonic has not provided a color gamut rating for this TV. So we have to take a guess. Now, since the TV features a big 65 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! It will produce accurate colors out of the box.

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

Color gamut specification of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that the display can show.

A TV with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated colors that will not be pretty to look at.

Different manufacturers use different units to specify color gamut. Viz — sRGB (most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 Adobe RGB and rec.2020.

But don't worry, 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 ratio of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.

Understanding Static Contrast

The static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A TV with low static contrast ratio (less than 1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Also, such displays often suffer from backlight bleeds such as this:

This will impact your experience considerably, especially in a dark room.

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, thus lesser detail overall.

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

This TV is rated with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., well enough to display deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. 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.

As for brightness, it is can achieve a maximum luminance of 250 nits. The panel of this TV is powered by Edge LED backlight technology.

Gaming Performance

If you aren't planning to game on this TV, 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 that features the lowest input lag and response time.

Unfortunately, Panasonic did not specify the input lag on this unit. But since this is not a cheap TV from Panasonic, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

This lag is the amount of time at which your device inputs changes the content of your display. 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 width of this TV is 57.13 inches while its height is 35.51 inches.

Overall this TV weighs around 27.5 kgs (including stand). Without stand, it weighs 25.0 kgs. So plan your space accordingly.

Now, speaking of ergonomics — If you plan to wall mount the TV, you can make use of the VESA mount provided with this TV, which by the way has an interface size of 400 x 300 mm. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.
