Reasons For

6 Reasons For
16% larger screen size Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CX802 is a 65" TV. That's 10" larger than the Samsung UE55JU7000 (55"). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen excluding any frame or border. One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CX802 has an RMS rated power of 40W, whereas the Samsung UE55JU7000 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (20W lower). Read more

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Common interface connection Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CX802 has a common interface connection, but the Samsung UE55JU7000 does not have a common interface connection. Read more

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

A common interface slot allows you to install pay per view cards. For example Sky TV sell pay per cards for watching football and boxing and WWE Network sell cards for watching wrestling.

6.4mm thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CX802 is a 61mm thick TV, whereas the Samsung UE55JU7000 is a 67.4mm thick TV (6.4mm thicker). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.
