Panasonic Viera TX-50DX802 4K TV review: Your affordable 4K future is here

It’s a bit of a numbers war when it comes to buying a 4K TV. And when spending over a grand on the latest and greatest Ultra HD tech, you want to make sure you’ve got it right. Fortunately Panasonic’s TV numbering system is relatively logical (if inelegant): the DX802 (DX800) sits below the flagship DX902 (DX900). The lower the number equals the more features you’ll see stripped away.

But, actually, the DX802 doesn’t relinquish too much of the DX902’s excellence. It does away with the Ultra HD Premium badge, there’s no honeycomb structure for specific local dimming (it still offers local dimming though) and is a 2,000Hz rather than 3,000Hz panel. Other than the “floating” design the biggest difference most might notice, however, is the price: the 50-inch model on review here is £1,199/$1,7985; the 58-inch just £1,399/$2.0985.
