Reasons For

3 Reasons For
200Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-40C300 has a motion interpolation frequency of 400Hz, but the Toshiba 40L1533 and the Toshiba 40L2436 are both only 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TVs (200Hz 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.

11 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.
Energy efficiency rating is better
The Panasonic TX-40C300 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the Toshiba 40L1533 has a rating of "A+" and the Toshiba 40L2436 has a rating of "A+".
5 Reasons For
A little faster response time Edit
The Toshiba 40L1533 has a response time of 8ms, whereas the Toshiba 40L2436 is an 8.5ms response time TV (0.5ms slower).
2W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Toshiba 40L1533 has an RMS rated power of 16W, whereas the Toshiba 40L2436 is only a 14W RMS rated power TV (2W lower). 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.

Two times thinner Edit
The Toshiba 40L1533 is a 27mm thick TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-40C300 is a 68mm thick TV (41mm thicker) and the Toshiba 40L2436 is a 67mm thick TV (40mm 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.

16% lighter Edit
The Toshiba 40L1533 has a weight of 9.5kg. That's 1.5kg lighter than the Panasonic TX-40C300 (10kg) and 500g lighter than the Toshiba 40L2436 (10kg). 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.

Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Toshiba 40L1533 is "A+", but the rating of the Panasonic TX-40C300 is "A+" and the rating of the Toshiba 40L2436 is "A+".
6 Reasons For
