Panasonic TX-65EZ952 (Cinematic 4K OLED) ($4,872)
- Color accuracy
- Amazing shadow detail
- Low input lag
- No Dolby Vision support
- HDR could do with a little more impact
Back in 2015, Panasonic released its first OLED, batting it off to a huge success. Two years later Panasonic is at it again, but this time with a louder bang. It’s a TV almost identical to its flashier sibling, the EZ1002, yet at the same time does not threaten to put a huge dent in your bank accounts. First of all, it looks absolutely fantastic and with that price point, it almost seems too good to be true. One of the best things about this TV is how natural and realistic the colors look, probably the most convincing thing you’ll see in most OLED’s these days. The sound might be a bit of a setback for Panasonic, it’s not downright horrible, it works great with watching TV-shows but when it comes to big movie soundtracks it tends to fall back.
