Panasonic JZ1500 Review: Perfect for watching movies

Panasonic does not want to lag behind its competition, which is why they have been releasing new televisions that stand out for different reasons. In this case we will focus on the high-end that presents a really attractive equipment, especially if you are a demanding user who seeks to exploit to the maximum what a television can offer you. We speak more specifically of the Panasonic JZ1500 that includes recent features that make it have a somewhat high cost.

Exterior design of the Panasonic JZ1500

A particular design that if we know how to place it we can enjoy a great appearance

The design of the Panasonic JZ1500 does not seem to be that spectacular and that could end up being a negative point, mainly in these times that the appearance has become quite relevant to the extent that many users look first at the aesthetics and not so much at their specifications. Therefore, having a good design is essential .

In this particular case we will have certain details that make it interesting, for example, we find a front that implements a thin frame, which gives us a much greater elegance. This is perfectly combined with its black chassis , therefore, we are going to enjoy a television that generates a great presence.

In addition, this benefits content playback, as the usable space will be much wider thanks to the slim bezels . The back part ends up being the least favorable considering that it has a more exposed thickness that detracts from the beauty of the television, therefore, the placement plays a very important role in maintaining a good design.

Connectivity

The connectivity of the Panasonic JZ1500 is really good, since it has the ideal connectors for a great experience. If you want to know all the connections offered you can check it in the specifications table. The most interesting are its four HDMI inputs perfect for connecting laptops, consoles and players, in addition, two include version 2.1 for a better experience. We also have three USBs with the possibility to record content. In the wireless we will enjoy Wi-Fi , Bluetooth and DLNA .

Image quality and general functions of the Panasonic JZ1500

The most attractive of the Panasonic JZ1500 is its image that gives us an interesting optimization, which seems to be enough to enjoy all our favorite content. First, we have a 4K resolution that gives us four times more power than Full HD , so the details seen will be more realistic.

What fully enforces the image of this model is that it integrates an OLED panel that gives us exceptional backlighting, which shows us all its power in very dark and bright environments that are usually the main problem of more basic panels. In this case, the placement does not matter, you will have a fairly accurate image .

Nor can we forget that some improvement technologies are integrated that seek to give us a more immersive experience. Each one focuses mainly on working with a specific parameter that ends up being a fundamental part of the overall image, for example, the color is exposed in a more vivid and intense way with natural tones .

Obviously there are several aspects that benefit from these functions, for example, the contrast, brightness and saturation that will be seen in a sharper and deeper state. On the other hand, we can observe quite fluid movements that are perfect for high-action content. It supports HDR10 + , HDR10 + Adaptive, and Dolby Vision .

Sound

We have an acceptable audio that is attractive to us due to the inclusion of two integrated speakers that offer a total power of 30W , which seems sufficient for the demand of almost any content, in addition, there are some improvement technologies that provide us with an experience still more immersive and precise, especially in dialogue and ambient sound . However, if you want a much higher power, it is best to buy a sound bar.

Panasonic JZ1500 Software / Smart TV Review and More

In this case we receive a system created exclusively for the televisions of this firm

It could be considered as a negative point that your system is not one of the most popular, however, it is also attractive that the Panasonic JZ1500 implements something different. In this case, we have my Home Screen 6.0 in its latest version, which ensures that we receive the benefits implemented in optimization and security.

Likewise, we have an interesting catalog of applications that integrates the most popular options, which ensures that we have enough content for your entertainment. On the other hand, we are going to find compatibility for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa , two assistants that allow us to control certain functions.
