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 more HDMI port Edit

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.

26% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CR430 is a 163kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 42kWh lower than the Panasonic TX-65CXW704 (205kWh). 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.

55% lighter Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CR430 has a weight of 17.5kg. That's 9.5kg lighter than the Panasonic TX-65CXW704 (27kg). 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.

£56.08 cheaper to run
The Panasonic TX-55CR430 is £56.08 cheaper to run than the Panasonic TX-65CXW704 over five years. Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Panasonic TX-55CR430 is "A", but the rating of the Panasonic TX-65CXW704 is "A".
4 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CXW704 is a 65" TV. That's 10" larger than the Panasonic TX-55CR430 (65"). 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.

Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CXW704 is an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 400Hz faster than the Panasonic TX-55CR430 (800Hz). 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.

Local dimming Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CXW704 features local dimming, however the Panasonic TX-55CR430 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.

Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Panasonic TX-65CXW704 is "A", whereas the rating of the Panasonic TX-55CR430 is "A".
