Panasonic GZ950 4K OLED TV Review | A Best Buy for accurate picture quality?



The Panasonic TX-55GZ950B is the entry-level screen in the company’s 2019 OLED line-up and comes with a whole host of features to make sure you get Hollywood to your home. The 2019 line-up consists of the GZ950 and GZ1000 which are identical apart from the stands and the GZ1500 adds a speaker bar. All three are identical in terms of features and picture quality. The GZ2000 is the flagship and adds in a custom professional OLED panel and upwards-firing Dolby Atmos speakers. The GZ950B features the HCX Pro Intelligent Processor which is designed to deliver accurate images to the industry standards, so you can view content as the creator intended. Panasonic engineers have tuned the panel and the processor to deliver superb black levels with just above black details and a neutral white balance that removes the traditional WRGB cyan tint. Adding to the picture quality line-up is full support of both dynamic metadata Dolby Vision and HDR10+ systems, as well as HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma), HLG Photo and HDR10. There is also a full suite of Calibration tools, as well as CalMAN AutoCal support. The GZ950B is also THX-Certified with two picture modes for day and night as well as ISFccc ready Professional modes. A Netflix Calibrated mode is also available. Dolby Atmos audio is supported via speakers built into the TV but unlike the GZ2000 there is no soundbar or upwards-firing drivers. However, you can add a subwoofer to the TV audio system using the switchable headphone jack and there are crossover and volume selections within the menu. The 55GZ950B features Panasonic’s new My Home Screen 4.0 that allows users to tailor the TV user interface to their own preference. There's a redesigned GUI and support for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, allowing users to operate the TV just using their voice.

We will always be transparent about who supplies a TV for review and the supplier (whether it is the manufacturer, distributor or retailer) never has any influence or input into our reviews. We will never accept payment to review a product as we insist on complete independence in our reviewing.
If a review is made possible by a retailer loaning it to us, we will state this within the review. We do this so that if a viewer is so inclined, they can use that retailer in return for helping to make our reviews possible. We will NEVER mention a retailer in a video where they have not supplied the product for review, or otherwise, intentionally mislead the viewer in any way.
