Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Hisense LTDN65K720 has a screen size of 65", but the Panasonic TX-58DX780 is only a 58" TV (7" smaller). 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.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Hisense LTDN65K720 is a 30W RMS rated power TV. That's 10W higher than the Panasonic TX-58DX780 (20W). 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.

Four HDMI ports Edit
The Hisense LTDN65K720 is a four HDMI port TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-58DX780 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.

Cheaper by £376
The Hisense LTDN65K720 is £376.07 cheaper than the Panasonic TX-58DX780.
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Hisense LTDN65K720 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Panasonic TX-58DX780 has a rating of "A".
4 Reasons For
1,000Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-58DX780 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,800Hz, whereas the Hisense LTDN65K720 is only an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,000Hz 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.

A lot lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Panasonic TX-58DX780 has an annual energy consumption of 156kWh, but the Hisense LTDN65K720 is a 213.16kWh annual energy consumption TV (57.16kWh 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.

A lot lighter Edit
The Panasonic TX-58DX780 has a weight of 23kg, however the Hisense LTDN65K720 is a 32.2kg heavy TV (9.2kg 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 higher
The Panasonic TX-58DX780 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the Hisense LTDN65K720 has a rating of "A".
