Panasonic JX700 Review: Good looking 4K TV with game mode and much more

Panasonic JX700

Panasonic is a brand that has been offering excellent products for years, obviously televisions are not far behind and we find very interesting models that stand out for the different features they offer, yes, they usually have higher costs, but sometimes it is worth making the investment .

Today we will talk about the Panasonic TX-43JX700E , an attractive television, especially if you are looking to renew your old televisions and get into 4K resolution. We are not saying that it is perfect either, therefore, we want to analyze it in detail.

Exterior design of the Panasonic JX700

They maintain the design of other models, therefore, there will be no differences in terms of aesthetics

We have already reviewed televisions with almost identical design, therefore the Panasonic TX-43JX700 is not going to show a different appearance. Of course, we must emphasize that we are talking about the 43-inch version, a size that seems to be the right one to have in small rooms or rooms.

If we want to get more out of its aesthetics, we must acquire the VESA support that facilitates its installation, especially if we plan to place it on the wall. Thus we will see a cleaner front , since it has thin bezels, which can generate elegance.

This is accompanied by a black chassis that seeks to maintain a high presence, which can be easily integrated with any decoration. However, not everything can be good and we have noticed that the rear is the least remarkable, since it has a thicker space .

Which removes beauty, since we see a greater volume. We must also consider that the construction materials are weak, therefore, we must be careful when moving the television , since a fall can be lethal. Generally speaking we will receive a regular appearance.

Connectivity

This television offers four HDMI 2.0  that we can use to connect different external devices such as laptops, consoles or players. Also do not forget the inclusion of two  USB 2.0 that allow us to play content from external sources such as memories or disks.

There will be other physical connections that we can take advantage of, for example, its  Ethernet port , its  satellite input  or its  audio output . Another attraction is that the Panasonic 43JX700E  has compatibility with different tuners that you can check in the table above.

This section is well covered by the most popular options today. Here we find a  Wi-Fi Direct connection  that allows us to use the Internet at a considerable distance, thus avoiding the use of Ethernet that forces us to be close to the modem.

We also have  Bluetooth  that makes it easy for us to use speakers, wireless headphones and sound bars. Maybe because of the version it’s not such an amazing experience, but it’s a pretty good connection. If we want to transmit content from our smartphone we have  DLNA .

Image quality and functions in general of the Panasonic TX-43JX700

The  Panasonic TX-43JX700E   provides a better image optimized for viewing content. In part, it is achieved thanks to the fact that it offers a 4K resolution that delivers four times more power than other resolutions, therefore, the definition will have details with much greater realism .

However, it has an Edge LED backlight that has its pros and cons, for example, it allows the design of the TV to be slimmer, likewise, the price is relatively more attractive and we must not forget that its energy consumption is lower than that offered by other backlights.

However, its negative points come to affect quite a bit, since the lighting can sometimes be a bit imprecise.  We also noticed that the black level is lower , especially in very dark or bright environments. Likewise, lighting has less control.

Of course, we have a VA panel that improves in some aspects , for example, the contrast and brightness can be seen more clearly. Another important detail is that we do not have fleeting light, this improves the backlighting a bit in dimly lit environments.

But it is not spared from some disadvantages either, and it is that we notice that the colors at a general level are transmitted with less fidelity and precision, giving less vivid scenes. We should also note that the viewing angles are not as precise as we get on an  IPS panel .

This model does not include great enhancement functions, however, it does have a very interesting one such as  the 4K Color Engine  that solves a bit of the detail that we mentioned earlier. With this technology we are going to enjoy a much more complete and realistic color spectrum.

Sound

We have a typical audio for the mid range, since we only have 20W that is transmitted through two speakers. This quality seems sufficient for content that is not so demanding, likewise, we have technologies such as  Dolby Atmos  and  Surround Sound  that give us a more enveloping and clean sound, especially in dialogues, however, it is still better to acquire an external sound system.

Software analysis / Smart TV and more features of the Panasonic 43JX700E

It includes Android TV, a fairly complete system that offers us the best catalog of applications currently available

We have been analyzing several televisions from this firm and most include their own system created precisely for these models, however, the Panasonic TX-43JX700 includes Android TV , which ensures us to enjoy the most extensive catalog of applications today.

In fact, we have over 5,000 options, obviously the most popular ones are available. We also have  Google Assistant  and  Alexa for voice control. The Panasonic 43JX700E  offers  Game Mode  for gaming and  Chromecast  for streaming content.

We also have support for  HDR10 ,  HLG ,  Dolby Vision  and  HDR10+  formats that improve parameters such as contrast and color palette. Of course, its operation depends in part on the content being compatible, since otherwise the experience will not be the best.
