Expert review

With the price of 4K TVs dropping every year, you would think that Full HD TV's days were numbered, but all the leading brands still release a handful every year, and Panasonic has one of the biggest selections. The 40-inch TX-40FS503B and its Full HD display may seem old-fashioned, but it has some advanced tech, most notably HDR10 support. We're not sure how useful the contrast-boosting technology will be when most of the compatible content is 4K, but it shows that Panasonic has put some effort into its Full HD TVs. Will it do a better job at displaying HD TV than a similarly priced 4K model though? Read our full review to find out.
