Looking for a cheap 4K TV deal on a set that's ideal for smaller living rooms or a bedroom, but that doesn't skimp out on picture quality? Currys is currently offering £200 off the 40-inch Panasonic HX800, which is a TV that only came out a couple of weeks ago, and that we've already raved about – this is one of the best TVs deals (opens in new tab) around right now.

In our Panasonic HX800 review (opens in new tab), we called this model "a really rewarding and cinematic TV" – that's thanks to its combination of support for both Dolby Vision and HDR10+ advanced HDR formats, plus Panasonic's general focus on image accuracy.

Panasonic makes sets that focus on colours that are true to life, rather than aiming for punchy razzle-dazzle, and in this set you really get the feeling that you're seeing an image close to what the director intended – that's Panasonic's whole schtick with its sets, and it's just as impressive here as on the company's high-end OLEDs.

It does really well with 4K detail too, and also impresses with its handling of HD and SDR content – regular TV shows are upscaled really effectively, which great since streaming services are still full of that kind of stuff.

It's also a really great choice for gaming: it supports the new ALLM (auto low-latency mode) feature that the PlayStation 5 (opens in new tab) and Xbox Series X (opens in new tab) will include, which means it change automatically to a gaming-focused mode when you turn you console on. And for lag-free gaming, this is one of the best TVs we've ever seen – its response time of 10ms is astonishingly low.

Also, it doesn't hurt that this is quite a looker – a nice slim frame and premium-feeling build quality help it to feel even more like money well spent.
