What is the Panasonic TX-65DX902? Unless the company has any other OLED surprises bound for 2016, then this is the firm’s flagship television for this year. It is able to achieve such a status due to the inclusion of support for 4K/UHD resolution. Also, there’s the unusually high level of support for the newer high dynamic range (HDR) format. This is thanks to the new “honeycomb” backlight technology, along with other picture processing elements, that have been taken from the firm’s professional monitors division.
The Panasonic TX-65DX902 Has a Lot to Boast About
The first thing to note about the Panasonic TX-65DX902 is its weight. The main panel is delivered in a more robust manner, and it does offer an “industrial” approach in terms of design. While there are many other high-end TVs out there that aim for the luxurious and premium offering in terms of looks, this particular model seems to not want to have anything to do with that notion. It’s because the TV is designed to arch so far back from the screen. This means that you can’t barely see the desktop stand. It also means that the rear has to be heavy enough to counteract the balance of the 65-inch panel that is situated at the front.
As for its connections, the TX-65DX902 offers plenty. To start, there’s four HDMI ports, all of which are built with the latest 2.0a specification. Also, all of these ports support the HDCP 2.2 protocol that is required for playback with the new 4K UHD sources such as Ultra High Definition Blue-ray. As for other multimedia support, they come in pretty strong as well. You can find three USB ports, an SD card slot, and also the more inevitable LAN port. There’s also a Wi-Fi connectivity option for when you want to connect the unit to a wireless network.
So the main question now is, does the Panasonic TX-65DX902 deliver consistently brilliant HDR performance with its direct LED lighting and honeycomb structure? When you start off, it does begin to work as promised. However, feeding it with images coming off from Ultra HD Blu-ray will immediately make it deliver really amazing images. Perhaps the only thing that you have to get used to is the consistent haloing effect that is brought about by playing HDR videos as the instances are due to the honeycomb structure. But aside from that, you will get blisteringly bright images and stunningly vibrant (but still well-balanced) colors.
