Panasonic Viera AX900 Review – The UHDTV that plasma rivals





Is that the AX900 is an expensive television, fine to refrain, because the TV has a sleek design and uses high quality materials. The TV shows are easy to operate, but knowing the smart part and the associated touchpad controller not really impress. The image is thanks to the uhd-sharp resolution and the color reproduction is very good. Unfortunately, the contrast falls despite the use of local dimming, against a TV in this price range, which also OLED TVs are.

The AX900 is packed with features. There are two tuners with a double CI + slot available and the TV next four HDMI 2.0 inputs a display port input, a feature that is only found on expensive Panasonic TVs. In addition to an infrared remote control, you get a touchpad controller at the TV. You also get two passive glasses for watching 3D.

That the inclusion of the top model from Panasonic shows the rather hefty prices. The AX900 is available in two sizes, 55 and 65 inches, which are in the Pricewatch at the time of writing for Euro 4000 and 5500 respectively.
