Reasons For

4 Reasons For
3D compatible Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CR852 is 3D compatible, however the Samsung UE60JU6000 is not. 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.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CR852 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the Samsung UE60JU6000 (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.

Cheaper by £229
The Panasonic TX-55CR852 costs £770.00, whereas the Samsung UE60JU6000 is £999.00.

6 Reasons For
5" larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UE60JU6000 has a screen size of 60", whereas the Panasonic TX-55CR852 is only a 55" TV (5" 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.

A lot lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE60JU6000 has an annual energy consumption of 132kWh, however the Panasonic TX-55CR852 is a 190kWh annual energy consumption TV (58kWh higher). Read more

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

2.6kg lighter Edit
The Samsung UE60JU6000 is a 20.9kg heavy TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-55CR852 is a 23.5kg heavy TV (2.6kg 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.
