Reasons For

3 Reasons For
12% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-50DX780 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,800Hz, however the Panasonic TX-65CR852 is only a 1,600Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (200Hz 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.

Lighter Edit
Panasonic TX-50DX780 is 16kg heavy, but the Panasonic TX-65CR852 is a 32kg heavy TV (16kg 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.

Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Panasonic TX-50DX780 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Panasonic TX-65CR852 has a rating of "A".
6 Reasons For
15" larger screen size Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CR852 is a 65" TV. That's 15" larger than the Panasonic TX-50DX780 (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.

A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CR852 has an RMS rated power of 40W, but the Panasonic TX-50DX780 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (20W lower). 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.

20% lower power consumption when switched off Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CR852 has a power consumption when switched off of 0.25W, however the Panasonic TX-50DX780 is a 0.3W power consumption when switched off TV (0.05W higher).
