Reasons For

6 Reasons For
8" larger screen size Edit
The Panasonic TX-40CX400 is a 40" TV. That's 8" larger than the Samsung UE32J6350 (32"). 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.

3D compatible Edit
The Panasonic TX-40CX400 is a 3D compatible TV, whereas the Samsung UE32J6350 is not 3D compatible. 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.

A lot thinner Edit
Panasonic TX-40CX400 is 65mm thick, but the Samsung UE32J6350 is a 91.5mm thick TV (26.5mm 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.

£68 cheaper
The Panasonic TX-40CX400 costs £68.30 less than the Samsung UE32J6350.
Available from 5 shops
A greater number of retailers increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Panasonic TX-40CX400 is "A", however the rating of the Samsung UE32J6350 is "A".
5 Reasons For
75% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE32J6350 is an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 600Hz faster than the Panasonic TX-40CX400 (800Hz). 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.

Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE32J6350 is a 55kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 36kWh lower than the Panasonic TX-40CX400 (55kWh). 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.

Two times lighter Edit
The Samsung UE32J6350 has a weight of 5.2kg. That's 5.3kg lighter than the Panasonic TX-40CX400 (5.2kg). 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.

£35.02 cheaper to run
The Samsung UE32J6350 only costs £65.93 to run over five years whereas the Panasonic TX-40CX400 costs £100.95 to run (53% more). Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE32J6350 is "A", but the rating of the Panasonic TX-40CX400 is "A".
