    That Toshiba would make a great man cave TV and being the warehouse if it breaks no issues get another. I wouldn't make it the main TV though

    Finally made the jump to 4k. 75" 4k from 60" 1080P, quite a nice step up. Upgraded Netflix but apart from that I don't have any 4k content to watch. Wasn't sure i'd ever make a post in here before 8k became the norm haha.

    Pretty much decided on Panasonic 4K TV. I have narrowed my selection to either a 55 FX600 for around $1200 or step up to a FX800 for about $2,000. I am not really after additional features or apps as these are secondary due to most content delivered via an APPLE TV or standard BluRays or some older DVDs. I just cant tell if the features of the FX800 are worth the extra $800. Other content will be standard Freeview TV.

    I have the model up from fx600 and it's amazing. Personally wouldn't pay the extra $800 for the 800

    It seems the key difference is Direct LED backlighting in the FX600 and Edge LED backlighting for the FX700, 800 and 900 series.

    Got a 43" FX600, bought it as a cheapie for the in-laws to use. It's much better than I expected it to be.

    Decided to get the Panasonic 55 FX600 for $1228. It will be fine for our needs. I was 80% for it and 20% for the FX800. Shops are running out of them as the new GX series is already out now, so would probably have to buy a more expensive TV model later.

    Good stuff. True cinema mode I find is the best balance of quality

    I expect the tv tomorrow but cant tune it in until Thursday when an aerial gets installed. I probably should wait for fibre before I upgrade my Netflix to 4K as well.

    Would you guys take the FX600 over the TCL C6US which is a similar price? I see the TCL has Wide Colour Gamut whereas the FX600 doesn't

  19. Post
    I was briefly considering TCL, but was not sure.

    Also can I use the headphone output port with a converter to connect to left and right / red and white - auxiliary ports - on my old DENON stereo?

    A quick look up of WCG feature is you need to be watching 4K and HDR content to see the difference.

    The hexachrome feature on the Panasonic may do a good job of presenting good enough display of colours for most content I will watch. Anyhow I have not been disappointed with my colours on my old Panasonic Full HD, so I doubt Id have any problems with this 4K TV which Id 7 years newer.

    I watched some Netflix, then upgraded, watched some more, then downgraded. Unless you sit close, especially given it's a 55", you probably won't spot the difference. I didn't anyway, so I didn't see the point. Good quality 1080P is more than enough for me ~2.5-3m away from a 75" screen.

    Cheaper to just make one resolution of panels, simplifies the manufacturing process.

    Given how cheap 4k is, it's well and truly in the entry level range - why would customers chose to buy a 1080p TV if it's the exact same price as a 4k panel or maybe even more expensive.

    Compare 50inch 1080p and 4k TV's for sale. You end up paying the same price regardless which you chose and more often than not the 4k model is newer, so has more features

    Wide Color Gamut, means 10bit panel which means better looking HDR (the colors look more vivid and have a greater range). TV that doesn't have Wide Color Gamut is using a 8 bit panel, which means less vivid looking colors when HDR is enabled. Some 8 bit panels using some sort of up-scaling called FRC which tries to scale a 10 bit image down to 8 bit and approximate the differences - this means it looks better than a basic 8 bit panel, but it still doesn't look like a 10 bit panel.

    Here, watch this

    Not just resolution, the 4k netflix plan allows more devices to stream at the same time, helpful when it's not just you watching
