Panasonic’s new series of LCDs began with the 80. This was an adequate set but not breathtaking, however, this was defended by it being a budget set. Panasonic is marketing this as better quality, so what extras does the higher price get you?
In terms of image processing, the 85 is 100HZ which is a remarkable enough difference to mention. This is helped along nicely by Motion Focus, which is designed to squeeze every drop of performance possible out of Blu-ray’s 1080p/24fps format.
In terms of design, there’s not much between them, and connectivity is the same.
If you’re wall mounting then a good cantilever TX-32LZD85 bracket will help you to befriend any corner, and when Panasonic being out the next model in this the series this TX-32LZD85 bracket should see you through. This TX-32LZD85 bracket fits most manufacturer’s TVs within the specified range of screen sizes, so you could even go bigger when you upgrade and keep the same television bracket.
