Prices seriously begin to fall on the side of Ultra HDTV / 4K, and among all manufacturers. Proof once again with the Panasonic TX-55CX700E model 55-inch diagonal (140 cm) launched in 1200 euros, which is in the middle range of the brand. This does not prevent the hyper-complete being.

A small flat unfortunately the noise level, the integrated speaker system (2 x 10 watts) is not really convincing, regardless of the settings used.
