Prime Day: save £250 on five-star 58-inch Panasonic 4K TV

Panasonic's got a reputation for making great TVs, but it's not known for making cheap TVs. The TX-58HX800B is a case in point: it might appear towards the bottom of the company's 2020 range, but we noted in our review that it's priced higher than most of the TVs that could be considered its rivals.

But that was before Amazon Prime Day came along and slashed the price to £749. That's a massive £250 discount on the price of the set when we reviewed it. We awarded it the full five stars, too, so this is an excellent TV made even better by a new, low price.

Key to the HX800B's success is its all-round picture and sound performance. It doesn't go as black as some, but it digs up loads of dark detail, reproduces tricky textures effortlessly, has a punchy, natural colour balance, and is an impressive handler of motion. Sound is good for a TV at this level, too.

One big feather in the Panasonic's hat is support for both Dolby Vision and HDR10+ (standard HDR10 and HLG are also supported), and while the operating system is basic compared to some, it does have most of the apps that are of most concern to most people, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and My5.

In short, this is an already excellent TV that's now available at a significantly lower price than before. Get it while you can.
