Panasonic Ultra HD OLED TV Review

Panasonic EZ1000 series
  • Expert Rating

    4.50 / 5

Pros

  • - Phenomenal contrast
  • - Great natural colours
  • - Soundbar in flagship model

Cons

  • - Entry-level model lacks Absolute Black Filter
  • - Not as bright as LED-backlit rivals
  • - No Dolby Vision

Bottom Line

Fantastic picture quality and elegant design, but it's hard to ignore LG's rival OLEDs

Would you buy this?

Audio

The EZ1000's soundbar offers full-bodied audio and adds punch to the low end, although not surprisingly it falls short of a high-end standalone soundbar.

The Panasonic televisions lack LG's support for Dolby Atmos surround sound, which adds a sense of height to a movie soundtrack. To be fair, LG's advantage is barely noticeable when listening to a movie soundtrack via soundbar rather than a full surround sound system.

Conclusion

Panasonic's first Australian OLEDs are worthy contenders for a spot in your lounge room, especially if you're primarily catering to movie night rather than daytime viewing in a sunlit room.

When it comes to picture quality Panasonic can hold its head high alongside LG's OLEDs, but for roughly the same price LG throws in the insurance policy of Dolby Vision – should it take off in the lounge room. That advantage puts LG ahead by a nose, but if Panasonic could shed a little weight on the price tag to undercut LG it would be on a winner.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
