Reasons For

3 Reasons For

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.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Panasonic TX-40CX802 is three, but the Samsung UE40JU6000 only has two 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.

37% thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-40CX802 has a thickness of 46mm. That's 16.6mm thinner than the Samsung UE40JU6000 (62.6mm). Read more
