The Panasonic TX-40DX650E is a mid-range / high-end TV from Panasonic, which is going to bring us quite interesting technical characteristics, such as the Quad Core processor and 4K resolution. The first thing we will do as usual is analyze the technical characteristics in a table.

The Panasonic TX-40DX650E TV it is a mid / high range, with a bit more high-end than mid-range, since it has very good things such as screen refreshment and screen resolution.
Exterior design and connectivity
The exterior design of the Panasonic TX-40DX650E is very similar to other Panasonic televisions, a silver-colored design and a metallic-colored finish which make it one of the most attractive televisions in its range. As for the thickness, it is a little thicker than some high-end, but it retains a fairly thin design, which will allow you to enjoy a very attractive TV with a good design in general terms.
Being a 40 inch TV, this TV weighs 12 kilos, a weight that is slightly heavier than normal for televisions of this size. However, nothing happens, as it is still light enough to be able to carry it from one place to another. As for its support, we have the classic silver-colored double base design, which holds the TV perfectly while adapting to it mimetically.
The connectivity of the Panasonic TX-40DX650E it’s a bit lazy for a high end, being more typical of a mid-range. We have 3 HDMI ports, 2 USB ports and a component output, missing another USB port, since not having Bluetooth is the only way we have to connect peripherals. What we are going to have is an integrated Wi-Fi connection and an Ethernet input, both intended for the internet connection, essential in a Smart TV.
The television tuner is a multiple tuner, which will allow us choose between standard DTT by cable and antenna and DTT2 by antenna. This will allow us to be prepared for the future DTT2, which is a standard that will be implemented in Spain very soon and that promises to bring us, among other things, improved resolution and an improvement in all content, so it is very worth it.
Image quality and other functions
The image quality of the Panasonic TX-40DX650E is a very good image quality, with a 4K resolution as the main flag for this TV. 4K resolution is the highest retail resolution out there right now, offering us up to 4 times more detail than Full HD resolution also known as 1K (hence the name), among other things. Of course, in 40 inches it is not noticeable as much as in larger televisions.
As well we are going to have 1000 hertz of screen refresh, a fairly high amount that will ensure that the images are more fluid, that they do not have any type of noise and that they look as close as possible to real life in terms of emission of frames. This is especially noticeable in sporting events, in which you go from one frame to another very quickly.
This television nor has HDR high dynamic range, which is one of the characteristics of the high-end right now. However, it does have other elements that try to make up for its absence, which improve, among other things, the brightness, contrast and color emission of the television, achieving a higher quality image, although without reaching the level of HDR.
Software, sound and other features
The software that the Panasonic TX-40DX650E has is the famous My Home Screen 2.0, a software that is based on the equally famous Firefox OS. Thanks to the quad-core processor and the fluidity of Firefox OS, we have a good Smart TV in terms of speed of operation and fluidity. The only downside is that it does not have as many applications as competing televisions, although it does have the most famous ones, such as YouTube.
The sound of the Panasonic TX-40DX650E is average sound, even for this size. 20 Watts of sound are usually enough for many people, but not for other people, since they have much more demand when it comes to sound. The alternative that these people have in order to have quality sound is the digital audio plug, a plug that it will allow us to connect a high quality sound system, that will allow us to increase the sound power in an easy and effective way.
Energy efficiency is perhaps the weak point of this television, since we only have a B, a label without a doubt quite loose. This means that this television spends more than competitive televisions, something that will put more than one back when buying it, since with how expensive the light is, his is to look for televisions that spend little.
Except for a few minor flaws, the Panasonic TX-40DX650E is a good TV for the most demanding people. Besides that, you can find it at a spectacular price, a very competitive price to have the characteristics it has.
