Panasonic TX-47AS740B review
|Review: July 2014|
In a nutshell: The Panasonic TX-47AS740B is a good-sized family TV with the benefit of built-in Freetime. Its key selling point is its Smart TV functionality, but in comparison with similar models from other manufacturers, it seems over-priced.
The Panasonic TX-47AS740B is the 47 inch version of the TX-42AS740B that we reviewed earlier, so read our review of the TX-42AS740B for a detailed assessment.
Key features of the TV are its contemporary look, the wide viewing angle and excellent motion processing of its IPS screen, and good Smart TV functions with built-in Freetime.
However, the issues that let down the 42 inch model are even more apparent in the 47 inch version, which has to compete against more upmarket models from the likes of Samsung and Sony. Overall we feel that the Panasonic is far too expensive at its current asking price of around £1150 and ought to be at least a couple of hundred of pounds cheaper.
