7 Reasons For
72% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Philips 50PUH6400 is a 700Hz motion interpolation frequency TV, and so does the Philips 50PUT6400. That's 500Hz faster than the Panasonic TX-50CX680 (700Hz). 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.

Three USB 2.0 ports Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Philips 50PUH6400 is three, and so does the Philips 50PUT6400, but the Panasonic TX-50CX680 only has two USB 2.0 ports. Read more

One more HDMI port Edit
