Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Local dimming Edit
The Panasonic TX-32CSW514 features local dimming, whereas the Samsung UE40JU6740 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.

Hugely lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Panasonic TX-32CSW514 has an annual energy consumption of 57kWh, but the Samsung UE40JU6740 is an 86kWh annual energy consumption TV (29kWh higher). 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.

A lot lighter Edit
The Panasonic TX-32CSW514 has a weight of 5.5kg, however the Samsung UE40JU6740 is an 8.1kg heavy TV (2.6kg heavier). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

Cheaper by £438
The Panasonic TX-32CSW514 costs £391.54, whereas the Samsung UE40JU6740 is £829.85.
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Panasonic TX-32CSW514 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the Samsung UE40JU6740 has a rating of "A".
6 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6740 has a screen size of 40", but the Panasonic TX-32CSW514 is only a 32" TV (8" smaller). 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.

1,100Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6740 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,200Hz, however the Panasonic TX-32CSW514 is only a 100Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,100Hz 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.

Two more USB 2.0 ports Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Samsung UE40JU6740 is three, but the Panasonic TX-32CSW514 only has one USB 2.0 port. 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.

Four HDMI ports Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6740 is a four HDMI port TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-32CSW514 only has two 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.
