ABOUT THIS TV

Panasonic TX-43LX650 400x400 Image Panasonic TX-43LX650

The TX-43LX650 is a 43 inch 4K TV from Panasonic, launched in the year 2022. It features a 10-bit IPS panel.

The max. resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel density of 103 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the very next spec of a display that will impact your viewing experience is its Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't provide a color gamut specification, but don't worry, we have other means to guess that. Considering the TV comes with a 10bit IPS panel, we can safely assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 100% or above. Undoubtedly The color accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike!

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

Color gamut spec of a TV is the measurement of the range of colors that the TV can display.

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

Different manufacturers use different units to specify color gamut. Viz — sRGB, NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB and rec.2020.

But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, the static contrast of a TV similarly impacts its picture quality.

Understanding the static contrast ratio of a TV

A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that look dusty as shown in the below image.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you can see, this will rob your experience considerably.

Note that, 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.

We were not able to find a static contrast ratio specification for this TV. Once again we have to make an assumption based on the TV's other specs. FYI — IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. Considering its a 4K TV, we can guess the ratio would be on the upper side, that is atleast 1200:1.

HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Dolby Vision.

Coming to brightness, the peak luminance the TV can produce is 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Edge LED technology.

Gaming Performance

If you are going to use the TV other than watching videos — say as a PC monitor or Gaming, you should take a TV with lowest input lag. For gaming, both the input lag and response time affects the performance.

Unfortunately, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. Now, since this is not a cheap TV, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

This lag is the amount of time at which your key-presses/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, look for a TV that has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

Vertically, the TV measures 43 inches and horizontally 37.95 inches.

It is 2.68 inches thick.

It weighs around 7.5 kgs and an additional 3.5 kgs if you include stand.

Now, coming to ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 100 x 100 mm. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.

Hardware and Audio

For display connectivity, there are three HDMI 2.0 (b; ARC; CEC) ports on this TV.

To connect USB devices, you will have two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Satellite In (Main — F-type female), 2x CI+ 1.4, 1x Antenna (RF) (female) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

For connecting to this TV wirelessly, you will have — Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct and Bluetooth.

The Audio unit of this TV is powered by 2 x 10W speakers.

Speaking of power usage, on average, this TV consumes 192W and on standby, it uses 0.5 W.

It supports a power outlet of 220 V - 240 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz.
