Reasons For

4 Reasons For
88% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Hisense LTDN40K321 is an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 700Hz faster than the Panasonic TX-40CS520 (100Hz). 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 USB 2.0 ports Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Hisense LTDN40K321 is two, but the Panasonic TX-40CS520 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.

Two more HDMI ports Edit
The Hisense LTDN40K321 is a four HDMI port TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-40CS520 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.

Lighter Edit
Hisense LTDN40K321 is 8.9kg heavy. That's 1.6kg lighter than the Panasonic TX-40CS520 (10.5kg). 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.

6 Reasons For

The Panasonic TX-40CS520 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 6W higher than the Hisense LTDN40K321 (20W). Read more
