The vast majority of new TVs are 4K, but all the major brands still release a few Full HD one every year. With the prices of 4K lower than ever, is there any real reason to settle for an old-fashioned Full HD TV? Impeccable HD picture quality and sound to match is a must for one of these TVs to hold a candle to a Best Buy 4K model. Does the 40-inch Panasonic TX-40FS500B achieve it? Find out in our full review.
Is it worth your money?
Or is it a waste of cash?
