The Panasonic TX-50GX800B is an excellent TV that combines Dolby Vision and HDR10+ in one ultra-affordable package. It's no wonder we awarded this classy 2019 set the full five stars.

If you're in the market for a new 4K TV, the GX800 is a great all-rounder. It also happens to support both flavours of dynamic metadata-based HDR formats, Dolby Vision and HDR10+. And right now, you can bag a hefty saving on the original RRP at Amazon.

There's an awful lot to like about this edge-lit 50in 4K LED TV. Panasonic's snappy operating system prioritises simplicity over snazziness, but it features most of the major streaming apps, including Netflix in 4K and Amazon Prime Video. 

One of this set's main attractions is its support for both Dolby Vision and HDR10+ HDR formats – it's worth reiterating as its something that a number of rival sets don't offer, especially at this price. 

With Alexa and Google Assistant compatibility, add a Google Assistant or Alexa smart speaker and you'll be able to adjust volume and change the TV's channel with your voice, too. 

Design-wise, the GX800 is not as razor-thin as some of the best OLED TVs, but it is still suitably svelte. Considering the wonderfully natural, smooth and detailed picture and broad HDR support, you're getting an awful lot of TV tech for your money.
