Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Vastly lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 55LH604 has an annual energy consumption of 77kWh, however the Panasonic TX-58DX700 is a 152kWh annual energy consumption TV (75kWh 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 LG 55LH604 is a 16.3kg heavy TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-58DX700 is a 23kg heavy TV (6.7kg 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.

Cheaper by £51
The LG 55LH604 costs £50.95 less than the Panasonic TX-58DX700.
50% cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 55LH604 only costs £87.97 to run but the Panasonic TX-58DX700 costs £177.70 to run (102% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The LG 55LH604 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the Panasonic TX-58DX700 has a rating of "A".
5 Reasons For
3" larger screen size Edit
The Panasonic TX-58DX700 has a screen size of 58", whereas the LG 55LH604 is only a 55" TV (3" 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.

Two more processor cores Edit
The number of processor cores on the Panasonic TX-58DX700 is four, but the LG 55LH604 only has two processor cores.
Thinner Edit
Panasonic TX-58DX700 is 41mm thick. That's 0.5mm thinner than the LG 55LH604 (41mm). 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.

2 shops are selling it

Better selling
The Panasonic TX-58DX700 ranks No. 8602 by number of sales, however the LG 55LH604 ranks No. 82496.
