Reasons For

1 Reason For
Larger screen size Edit
The LG 65EG9609 is a 65" TV. That's 15" larger than the Panasonic TX-50CX802 (50"). 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.

5 Reasons For
Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the LG 65EG9609 (40W). Read more

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Common interface connection Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 has a common interface connection, but the LG 65EG9609 does not have a common interface connection. Read more

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

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.

Integrated card reader Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 has an integrated card reader, but the LG 65EG9609 does not have an integrated card reader.
9% thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 is a 46mm thick TV. That's 3.9mm thinner than the LG 65EG9609 (46mm). 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.

12% lighter Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 has a weight of 18kg, however the LG 65EG9609 is a 20kg heavy TV (2kg 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.
