Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Eighteen more loudspeakers Edit
The number of loudspeakers on the LG 50UF830 is 20.00, but the Panasonic TX-50DX750 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

We do not know the number of loudspeakers on the LG 55UF860. It is possible that it does not have any loudspeakers.

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

29kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 50UF830 has an annual energy consumption of 104kWh, but the Panasonic TX-50DX750 is a 133kWh annual energy consumption TV (29kWh 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.

100g lighter Edit
The LG 50UF830 has a weight of 15.9kg, however the Panasonic TX-50DX750 is a 16kg heavy TV (100g 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.

£41.27 cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 50UF830 is £41.27 cheaper to run than the Panasonic TX-50DX750. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The LG 50UF830 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the LG 55UF860 has a rating of "A" and the Panasonic TX-50DX750 has a rating of "A".
2 Reasons For
5" larger screen size Edit
The LG 55UF860 has a screen size of 55", whereas the LG 50UF830 and the Panasonic TX-50DX750 are both only 50" TVs (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.

Cheaper by £81
The LG 55UF860 costs £80.99 less than the Panasonic TX-50DX750.
4 Reasons For
12% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-50DX750 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,800Hz, however the LG 50UF830 is only a 1,600Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (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.

20% thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-50DX750 has a thickness of 40mm. That's 7.6mm thinner than the LG 50UF830 (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.

15 shops are selling it

Better selling
