Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Panasonic TX-49DX600 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Panasonic TX-50DX700 has a rating of "A".
8 Reasons For
Moderately larger screen size Edit
The Panasonic TX-50DX700 has a screen size of 50", however the Panasonic TX-49DX600 is only a 49" TV (1" 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 faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-50DX700 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,400Hz, whereas the Panasonic TX-49DX600 is only an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (600Hz 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.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The Panasonic TX-50DX700 has two USB 2.0 ports, however the Panasonic TX-49DX600 only has one USB 2.0 port. 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.

67% lower power consumption when switched off Edit
The Panasonic TX-50DX700 is a 0.3W power consumption when switched off TV. That's 0.2W lower than the Panasonic TX-49DX600 (0.3W).
65% thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-50DX700 is a 40mm thick TV. That's 26mm thinner than the Panasonic TX-49DX600 (40mm). 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.
