Reasons For

5 Reasons For
OLED technology Edit
The LG 55EA870 features OLED technology, however the Panasonic TX-65DX902 does not feature OLED technology. Read more

Instead of using LED's, OLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light.

OLED TVs have much higher contrast then LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

172kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 55EA870 has an annual energy consumption of 142kWh, however the Panasonic TX-65DX902 is a 314kWh annual energy consumption TV (172kWh higher). 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.

Cheaper by £450
The LG 55EA870 costs £450 less than the Panasonic TX-65DX902.
56% cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 55EA870 only costs £157.87 to run but the Panasonic TX-65DX902 costs £362.14 to run (129% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The LG 55EA870 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Panasonic TX-65DX902 has a rating of "B".
3 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Panasonic TX-65DX902 is a 65" TV. That's 10" larger than the LG 55EA870 (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-65DX902 has an RMS rated power of 40W, however the LG 55EA870 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.

Available from 28 shops
A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.
