100Hz faster refresh rate Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CS620 has a refresh rate of 200Hz, whereas the Panasonic TX-50CS520 is only a 100Hz refresh rate TV (100Hz slower). Read more

The refresh rate is also known as the high frequency rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. The high frequency rate is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

The high frequency rate is also known as the refresh rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate.

100Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CS620 has a motion interpolation frequency of 200Hz, however the Panasonic TX-50CS520 is only a 100Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (100Hz slower). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit

The Panasonic TX-50CS620 features local dimming, however the Panasonic TX-50CS520 does not feature local dimming. Read more

This means that LEDs can be controlled individually (or in clusters) to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Panasonic TX-50CS620 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the Panasonic TX-50CS520 has a rating of "A+".
