Reasons For

5 Reasons For
3D compatible Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CXM710 is a 3D compatible TV, whereas the Samsung UE50JU6800 is not 3D compatible. Read more

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. Most 3D TVs require you to wear special 3D glasses in order to view the content in 3D, however some of the newer 3D TVs require no 3D glasses at all. Of those TVs that do require glasses, there are two main types of 3D technology: passive and active. Passive 3D uses glasses similar to those that you wear in the cinema. The glasses have polarised lenses which ensure that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of passive 3D is that the glasses are very light and comfortable to wear, but it can result in a less bright image. Active 3D uses battery powered glasses which control active shutters in each lens. These shutters constantly open and close very quickly in sync with two different images that are being displayed by the TV. This ensures that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of active 3D is that the image is brighter, however the glasses are heavier and more expensive.

3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

86% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CXM710 is a 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 860Hz faster than the Samsung UE50JU6800 (140Hz). 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.

Local dimming Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CXM710 features local dimming, but the Samsung UE50JU6800 does not feature local dimming. Read more

This means that LEDs can be controlled individually (or in clusters) to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

17.2mm thinner Edit
Panasonic TX-50CXM710 is 46mm thick, but the Samsung UE50JU6800 is a 63.2mm thick TV (17.2mm thicker). 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 energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Panasonic TX-50CXM710 is "A", however the rating of the Samsung UE50JU6800 is "A".
5 Reasons For
Three USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Samsung UE50JU6800 is a three USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-50CXM710 only has two USB 2.0 ports. 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.

One more HDMI port Edit
The Samsung UE50JU6800 has four HDMI ports, however the Panasonic TX-50CXM710 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.

31% lighter Edit
The Samsung UE50JU6800 is a 13.4kg heavy TV. That's 4.1kg lighter than the Panasonic TX-50CXM710 (13.4kg). 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.

1% cheaper to run
The Samsung UE50JU6800 is £1.21 cheaper to run than the Panasonic TX-50CXM710 over five years. Read more
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE50JU6800 is "A", however the rating of the Panasonic TX-50CXM710 is "A".
