8 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Philips 32PFT6500 is a 500Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 400Hz faster than the Panasonic TX-32CS510 (500Hz). 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 Philips 32PFT6500 has three USB 2.0 ports, however the Panasonic TX-32CS510 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 number of HDMI ports on the Philips 32PFT6500 is four, but the Panasonic TX-32CS510 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.

Local dimming Edit
The Philips 32PFT6500 features local dimming, whereas the Panasonic TX-32CS510 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.

27% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Philips 32PFT6500 is a 45kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 12kWh lower than the Panasonic TX-32CS510 (45kWh). 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.

Marginally thinner Edit
The Philips 32PFT6500 is a 64mm thick TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-32CS510 is a 69mm thick TV (5mm thicker). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

4% lighter Edit
The Philips 32PFT6500 has a weight of 5.3kg. That's 200g lighter than the Panasonic TX-32CS510 (5.3kg). 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.

Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Philips 32PFT6500 is "A+", but the rating of the Panasonic TX-32CS510 is "A".
