Reasons For

1 Reason For
6% lighter Edit
The Panasonic TX-55AX900 has a weight of 26kg. That's 1.5kg lighter than the Panasonic TX-58DX902 (27.5kg). 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.

6 Reasons For
6% larger screen size Edit
The Panasonic TX-58DX902 is a 58" TV. That's 3" larger than the Panasonic TX-55AX900 (58"). 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.

Hugely higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-58DX902 has an RMS rated power of 40W, but the Panasonic TX-55AX900 is only an 8W RMS rated power TV (32W 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.

15% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Panasonic TX-58DX902 is a 254kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 37kWh lower than the Panasonic TX-55AX900 (254kWh). 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.

56% cheaper to run
The Panasonic TX-58DX902 only costs £293.24 to run over five years but the Panasonic TX-55AX900 costs £662.02 to run (126% more). Read more
