Reasons For

3 Reasons For
500Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-40CX700 has a motion interpolation frequency of 800Hz, but the Samsung UE43J5500 is only a 300Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (500Hz 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.

Thinner Edit
Panasonic TX-40CX700 is 46mm thick. That's 20.9mm thinner than the Samsung UE43J5500 (66.9mm). 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.

Better expert reviews
Based on 1 review, the average expert review score of the Panasonic TX-40CX700 is 80%, however the average rating of the Samsung UE43J5500 is 72% (based on 5 reviews).
5 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 is a 43" TV. That's 3" larger than the Panasonic TX-40CX700 (43"). 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.

46% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 is a 71kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 32kWh lower than the Panasonic TX-40CX700 (71kWh). 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.

35% lighter Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 is a 7.8kg heavy TV. That's 2.7kg lighter than the Panasonic TX-40CX700 (7.8kg). 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.

31% cheaper to run
The Samsung UE43J5500 is £38.07 cheaper to run than the Panasonic TX-40CX700 over five years. Read more
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE43J5500 is "A+", however the rating of the Panasonic TX-40CX700 is "B".
