Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Vastly faster refresh rate Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CX700 is an 800Hz refresh rate TV. That's 800Hz faster than the Samsung UE55JU7000 (unknownHz). Read more

The refresh rate is also known as the high frequency rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. The high frequency rate is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

The high frequency rate is also known as the refresh rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate.

Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CX700 is an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 800Hz faster than the Samsung UE55JU7000 (unknownHz). 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.
