Reasons For

7 Reasons For
Faster refresh rate Edit
The Panasonic TX-40CS520 is a 100Hz refresh rate TV. That's 100Hz faster than the Panasonic TX-40CX400 and the Samsung UE43J5500 (unknownHz). 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.

1.3 newer common interface plus (CI+) version Edit
The Panasonic TX-40CS520 has a common interface plus (CI+) version of 1.3, whereas the Samsung UE43J5500 is only a unknown common interface plus (CI+) version TV (1.3 older).

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

0.1W lower power consumption when switched off Edit
The Panasonic TX-40CS520 has a power consumption when switched off of 0.2W, but the Philips 40PUT6400 is a 0.3W power consumption when switched off TV (0.1W higher) and the Samsung UE43J5500 is a unknownW power consumption when switched off TV (0.2W lower).
36mm thinner Edit

Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Panasonic TX-40CS520 is "A+", but the rating of the Panasonic TX-40CX400 is "A", the rating of the Philips 40PUT6400 is "A+" and the rating of the Samsung UE43J5500 is "A+".
5 Reasons For
3D compatible Edit
The Panasonic TX-40CX400 is a 3D compatible TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-40CS520 is not 3D compatible. Read more

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. Most 3D TVs require you to wear special 3D glasses in order to view the content in 3D, however some of the newer 3D TVs require no 3D glasses at all. Of those TVs that do require glasses, there are two main types of 3D technology: passive and active. Passive 3D uses glasses similar to those that you wear in the cinema. The glasses have polarised lenses which ensure that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of passive 3D is that the glasses are very light and comfortable to wear, but it can result in a less bright image. Active 3D uses battery powered glasses which control active shutters in each lens. These shutters constantly open and close very quickly in sync with two different images that are being displayed by the TV. This ensures that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of active 3D is that the image is brighter, however the glasses are heavier and more expensive.

3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Vastly larger visible diagonal screen size Edit
The Panasonic TX-40CX400 has a visible diagonal screen size of 101.6cm, however the Samsung UE43J5500 is only a unknowncm visible diagonal screen size TV (101.6cm smaller).

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

Two more HDMI ports Edit
The Panasonic TX-40CX400 has four HDMI ports (as does the Philips 40PUT6400), however the Panasonic TX-40CS520 only has two HDMI ports and the Samsung UE43J5500 only has three HDMI ports. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

Bluetooth connection Edit
The Panasonic TX-40CX400 has a Bluetooth connection, but the Panasonic TX-40CS520 does not have a Bluetooth connection.
9 Reasons For
Vastly faster motion interpolation frequency Edit

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.

Vastly brighter display brightness Edit
The Philips 40PUT6400 has a display brightness of 300 cd/m², however the Samsung UE43J5500 is only a unknown cd/m² display brightness TV (300 cd/m² dimmer).

9 Reasons For
7% larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 is a 43" TV. That's 3" larger than the Panasonic TX-40CS520, the Panasonic TX-40CX400 and the Philips 40PUT6400 (43"). 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.

7 Reasons Against
Only two USB 2.0 ports Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Samsung UE43J5500 is two, but the Philips 40PUT6400 only has three USB 2.0 ports. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

One less HDMI port Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 is a three HDMI port TV, whereas the Philips 40PUT6400 only has four HDMI ports. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

12kWh higher annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 is a 71kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 12kWh higher than the Panasonic TX-40CS520 (71kWh), 20kWh lower than the Panasonic TX-40CX400 (71kWh) and 10kWh higher than the Philips 40PUT6400 (71kWh). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

19.9mm thicker Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 has a thickness of 66.9mm, however the Panasonic TX-40CS520 is a 47mm thick TV (19.9mm thinner), the Panasonic TX-40CX400 is a 65mm thick TV (1.9mm thinner) and the Philips 40PUT6400 is an 83mm thick TV (16.1mm 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.

Four months older
The Samsung UE43J5500 is older than the Panasonic TX-40CX400 by one month and older than the Philips 40PUT6400 by four months. The Samsung UE43J5500 is the same age as the Panasonic TX-40CS520.
More expensive to run over five years by 22%
The Samsung UE43J5500 costs £83.55 to run which is £14.81 more to run than the Philips 40PUT6400 over five years. Show assumptions.
Moderately Lower user review Score
The average user rating of the Samsung UE43J5500 is 84%, whereas the average user rating of the Philips 40PUT6400 is 87% (based on 52 reviews).
