Panasonic LZ1500: The perfect 4K Ultra HD christmas gift

Panasonic LZ1500

Panasonic continues to release televisions with an OLED panel, which for obvious reasons will be a good option for viewing content thanks to the benefits provided by this type of backlighting. We are talking about the Panasonic TX-65LZ1500E that not only stands out for its image, but also integrates other equally interesting features. However, as in most cases we also have to find not so positive points. This must be considered for the price that exceeds 2,000 euros, so it will be ideal to know in detail what it offers.

Exterior design of the Panasonic LZ1500

We see a striking design due to the inclusion of certain details, although there will be others that take away a certain presence.

It may come to be thought that the Panasonic TX-65LZ1500 will have an incredible design because it is high-end, however, we quickly notice that it is not quite like that. We are not saying that it is a bad appearance either, in fact, it has a good construction with quality materials.

This is the 65-inch version that, due to its dimensions, will be suitable to have in rooms or halls of a considerable size. Here the placement plays an important role to improve the integration of the television according to the space and place where we plan to install it.

The idea is that the front looks more due to the thin bezels that cover the screen, generating elegance and a better presence from any angle. This detail combines quite well with the black chassis that gives it the premium appearance and a modern and minimalist style.

But as we mentioned at the beginning there will be certain details that deteriorate the aesthetics a bit. For example, the rear part has a voluminous space at the bottom and from our point of view it takes away from its beauty, therefore, we recommend adapting it directly to the wall .

Connectivity

This section ends up being one of the best of the Panasonic 65LZ1500E thanks to the options that it integrates, among which we highlight the inclusion of four HDMI inputs , where two come in version 2.1 that greatly improves performance when connecting compatible devices.

Something similar happens with USB ports , since one includes version 3.0 that improves data transmission, which improves the speed when playing videos, images and music. The same thing happens when recording content, therefore, the experience when using these ports improves.

We find other equally important physical connections, although their operation depends more on what you want to do. You can check which options are available from the specifications table. In this space we have placed the compatible TV tuners.

At the wireless level, it does not look bad either and they include the essentials to take full advantage of the television in this regard. It works with dual-band Wi-Fi for proper internet browsing. Likewise, it has Bluetooth and even DLNA to transmit.

Image quality and functions in general of the Panasonic TX-65LZ1500

Undoubtedly the strongest point of the Panasonic TX-65LZ1500E is its image quality, which gives us excellent optimization to enjoy any content without any problem. Firstly, we have a 4K resolution that provides four times more power than Full HD , therefore, the images will show more realistic details.

The most spectacular thing about this section is that it includes an OLED panel that is currently considered one of the most powerful,  and it is not for less if we consider the great backlighting that we are going to receive . We can even see its full potential when we are in very dark or bright places where image quality is not easily lost.

In addition, it offers some enhancement technologies that end up being important to obtain an even more precise and deep image. These functions focus their work on increasing the quality of important parameters , for example, the color that we will appreciate in a more vivid and intense state for more precise scenes without losing purity.

Another parameter that also receives an important improvement is the contrast that is going to be observed in a clearer way, thus avoiding quality losses in darker tones. The brightness receives a separate benefit that ends up being important in lighting issues. We have compatibility with  HDR10+ ,  HDR10+ Adaptive ,  HLG  and  Dolby Vision .

Sound

We have a maximum power of 50W that is distributed between two speakers and a subwoofer, generating good quality sound with better quality bass and bass. Ideal for listening clearly to the smallest detail regardless of the content requirement that is being played.

To this we must add improvement technologies that provide higher quality to the final sound. Here we have options like Dolby Atmos and Dynamic Cinema Surround Pro for an immersive experience. For better connection with external systems, Bluetooth Audio Link is included.

Analysis of the software / Smart TV and more features of the Panasonic LZ1500

It works with its own system, which will have positive and negative points compared to the most popular systems.

Unlike what we are used to seeing on other televisions, the Panasonic TX-65LZ1500 includes its own operating system,  which seems to have its positive and negative points . We say this because it is a platform that still has things to improve, especially if they have the idea of ​​competing against the best.

In this latest update, optimization and security have been considerably improved. Likewise, we will have a somewhat extensive catalog of applications that adds popular options such as Netflix ,  Prime Video ,  YouTube ,  HBO Max ,  Disney+ ,  DAZN ,  Star+  and much more. So we will have a large number of movies, series and documentaries.

We must not forget that it includes compatibility with  Google Assistant  and  Alexa that give us the option to control certain functions of the Panasonic 65LZ1500E using only our voice. Something that we also like about this model is that it includes an important function for game optimization.
