I do want to add and as a owner I feel that full disclosure of things, even if taken as a negative is what owners should be doing...with that said I do feel that at times there are some weird quirks with the 940d. So far, there are 3 that I would like to mention below:
1) When using my PC with this set is that Windows 10 detects the panel as 1980p native. I have the options to select 4k and it runs in 4k with no issues once set, but Windows does detect the panel as 1080p native for some reason. Even when using the Nvidia resolution screen it also detects it as Native 1080p. In certain games I have tested, when looking at the available resolutions, some of them list 3840x2160 as the native resolution from within the game, but others and the majority list 1080p as native. Again, TV runs perfectly fine in 4k and looks glorious, but still very odd. My 2 Previous Panasonic 4k sets (2014 & 2015) had no issues detecting them as native 4k even my first generation Sony 4k x900a my PC detects as native 4k albeit at 4:2:0 chroma since first generation Sony's 4k did not do 4k/60fp at full chroma. No questioning that the set is full 4k, but just an odd thing that the PC detects it the way it does.
2) The other oddity and this has more to do with the Android operating system is that I have had some weird lock ups, options refusing to load up or really laggy menu's. I once had the menu come up and hitting picture adjustments would just cause it to sit on the screen and do nothing. All of this went away after a Reset of the T.V.. I have also had some weird handshake issues where it took a bit longer to detect the signal. Not sure if this is due to my Denon receiver or just an oddity due to Android. I also found that having to change HDMI from Normal to enhanced is a bit odd. I am not sure why such an option is needed, what I do notice that if the HDMI is set to normal, my PC will only allow 4:2:0 chroma to be selected and no way to change it. Changing to enhanced I can change it to any chroma level, basically all selections available.
3) I have used an Antec Bias lighting strip on the back of all of my TV for the last 4 years. This strip is powered by the USB port on the TV. I have used the same brand/model lighting strip on my Sony 1080p 65" Screen, Sony x900a 4k Set, 2014 65" Panasonic 4k and 2015 Panasonic 4k and with all of them the LED light strip turns on when the TV turns on and they turn off when the TV turns off. On the 1080p Sony, when turning it off, it turns off the LED bias lights, but they turn back on for about 30 seconds and turn off. On the 940d, no matter which USB port I use it is constantly providing power to the Bias lighting strip, even when the TV is turned off. So in order to use the same trusted brand of back light, I would have to not use it at all or use it and it never turns off. Just another little quirk.
So for me there have been some quirks, but some of these in the long run have not been major issues, just some stuff I thought I would/should bring up since people do value and/or take into consideration impressions from owners. These quirks however has not swayed my decision to keep the set because they are quirks and the TV still functions great even though things like my computer detecting tha panel as being 1080p native instead of 4k native...it is just little things that irk me. The screen has had great uniformity outside of some clouding that completely go away using that Auto Dimming at medium or high eliminates. Still messing with that setting since it is new to me. While watching movies, sports or gaming I don't notice the clouding even when having the auto limiting turned off, it usually is noticeable on a black screen when transitioning from inputs or moving from scene to scene where it is just a black screen. Any Space type scenes in Star Wars or Gravity I do not notice the clouding.
I hope this does not scare anyone, but I figured it is better to mention these things, even as minor as they may be so people have more information than less information. I am sure the quirks with Android will improve, after all this particular unit is brand new and only 1 firmware update has been made.
