Reasons For

1 Reason For
Thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX600 is a 49mm thick TV. That's 0.5mm thinner than the Samsung UE40JU6412 (49.5mm). 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.

6 Reasons For
Two more USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6412 is a three USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-40DX600 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.

Four HDMI ports Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6412 has four HDMI ports, however the Panasonic TX-40DX600 only has three 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.

11% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6412 has an annual energy consumption of 86kWh, however the Panasonic TX-40DX600 is a 95kWh annual energy consumption TV (9kWh higher). Read more

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

A lot lighter Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6412 is an 8.2kg heavy TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-40DX600 is a 12kg heavy TV (3.8kg heavier). Read more

10% cheaper to run
Over five years the Samsung UE40JU6412 only costs £101.18 to run but the Panasonic TX-40DX600 costs £112.00 to run (11% more). Read more
