Despite what 2017’s run of televisual lookers might suggest, TVs don’t need to be drop dead gorgeous to do a good job.
Sure, tellies such as the LG B7 and the Sony Bravia A1 throw in stunning design as part of the package, but not everyone is bothered by showroom-worthy stylings and bezels you need a magnifying glass to make out.
The Panasonic TX-55EZ952B is a TV aimed at that very person – someone who can see past its rather ordinary design and instead focus on the picture quality. The only trouble with that, is that the picture quality here isn’t the absolute best either.
Picture: HDR-you there?
The EZ952 is Panasonic’s cheapest OLED set this year, but you wouldn’t exactly describe it as a bargain: at £2800 RRP, it’s more expensive than LG’s brilliant B7 (£2250) and only slightly cheaper than Sony’s breathtaking A1.
