Design and connectivity of the Panasonic TX-58DX900E
Here’s the tasteful design of the Panasonic TX-58DX900E. Although from the side or behind it loses a bit, on the front it offers a thin wall-frame-style frame that gives it a somewhat classic touch but with a glossy black panel (although careful with reflections) and silver and beveled edges smooth on its edges with a rough dotted surface. Its pedestal or table support has a circular brushing within its square front ends, which gives a sense of originality of circular reflection within square lines of silver again to stand out from the front made up of the black frames and panel.
In terms of connectivity, this Panasonic TX-58DX900E has plenty of: 3 USB with HID and recorder, 4 HDMI (one of them ARC), Bluetooth with HID to connect headphones, keyboard, mouse … And in addition to two CI + and tuners of all kinds has a rare connection: SD card. In short, this high-end smartTV does not lack almost anything, nor its famous In-House Streaming being both a server and a client when sending or receiving the signal that the television is broadcasting to / from another compatible television through streaming. So we can not depend on the connector or antenna socket or any additional decoder of our pay TV service anywhere in our house with this more than interesting function.

Software analysis / SmartTV
my Home Screen 2.0 based on Firefox OS offers us interesting functions such as a Firefox browser, voice assistant to navigate I will interact with the TX-58DX900E although we miss some variety in terms of applications. Apparently the operating system itself and consequently smartTVs with this operating system do not go much down the road of creating and improving apps, so in this sense it does give fluidity when navigating menus and programs, that is not little.
Your operating system my Home Screen it is smart as it contains links to access your favorite applications and content chosen by you or by the television itself depending on your uses. In addition, personalize said content for each member of the family so you can have your own personalized screen.
